This was mentioned briefly in the previous thread but does anyone know what has been put in place for promotion and relegation between the Wearside League and the Development league ??

I was told at the weekend that it has been agreed that the top 2 teams from the development league can be promoted into the Wearside as long as they meet the required ground grading BUT there will be no relegation from the Wearside.

Not sure how this would work, I know the Wearside league is low on numbers this year but you cant just go on adding teams.

Iam sure something must have been agreed at the AGM but cant see anything in the rules on their website

The FA rules state that step 7 leagues can have ‘maximum of 16 clubs’. Some league’s have been given dispensation for a season. I did hear that the Wearside league might be able to run with more than 16 clubs, until the new step 4 league in the northeast created. This will happen at the end of season 2019/20. This is because the FA & WL have had discussion. Basically the FA will almost certainly Cherry Pick enough clubs from the feeder leagues, to backfill the NL losses to the new step 4 league. After this the Wearside League will have to run with 16 clubs. How can they continually promote 2 clubs & relegate no clubs. What happens if a club gets zero points? Do they deserve a step 7 place?
