Who is actually talking of leaving the pyramid ?

And whilst I am on it...not long ago we got fined £200 for something our press office did which was completely out of the Clubs hands, so £300 for an appeal in London looks chicken feed to me (not withstanding they knew the cost and the very likely outcome) ....grass routs and all that :lol: :lol:

FA STATEMENT - EBAC NORTHERN LEAGUE APPEAL:

An appeal by the Northern League against the decision of the FA’s Leagues Committee to refuse a proposal to establish a new League at Step 4 next season was dismissed by an independent Appeal Board at the Football Association this week.

The proposal by the Northern League (made on 11 December 2017) to engage with the establishment of a Step 4 Division in the North East was welcomed by the Leagues Committee who felt that the proposal had been received too late to be able to be incorporated into the plans for the pilot scheme which is already in place for Steps 3 and 4 over the next 2 years.

In refusing the Northern League’s application the Leagues Committee did offer the Northern League free grading inspections of all their Step 5 members and that offer is still in place.

After the hearing the representatives of the Leagues Committee and the Northern League had a very harmonious discussion about the future and are looking forward to working together to address the long-standing issues of travelling distance and time for the Clubs in that part of the country.

The pilot for new divisions at Steps 3 and 4 is a two year pilot which will be reviewed in the third year and the Committee intend to work with the Northern League representatives during that time to address the outstanding issues in the hope that an eighth Step 4 Division can be introduced in the North East very soon but it is likely that the administration of that new League will have to go through a bidding process as happened with the administration and responsibilities for the two new Divisions which are introduced at the end of this season.

It is hoped that this decision represents a bright day for the Northern League and its Clubs enabling them to work together with the Association towards a positive future.

The only one who's ever prospered from leaving the pyramid is Tutankahmun.

I did wonder why Mike was taking the moral high ground on that one when the NL fines clubs struggling just the same as the FA.

Seems very hypocritical.

This statement completely contradicts Mike's outraged blog...

I have heard and read speculation that certain clubs would try to "throw" matches to avoid finishing in a position which would bring promotion. I can't and don't believe it would happen. That would involve the players in collusion. The vast majority of footballers take pride in their ability and their application of it and I don't think they would play badly just to please their club. If players want to stay in the Northern League rather than play at a higher level, it is far easier for them to do than it is for the clubs, they just have to find another club next season. Except for contracted players, a player's connection to his club is only for one season at a time and he becomes a "free agent" once the season is over.

Or am I being too credulous?


I never even mentioned, players being in collusion to throw games. I’m not accusing anyone of cheating, in any way, shape or form! A team can release all there non-contracted players & drop the contracted ones. Basically just put out a ‘B’ team & that might be enough for North Shields or West Auckland to catch them. Especially if one of those two sides have an unbeaten run to the end of the season. If Morpeth are caught & end up 3rd, there will be a lot of suspicion cast towards them. Personally I hope they win the league & state they’re happy to go up!


People also don’t realise managers can also play people out of position etc.a lot of them along with chairmen don’t want to go up
