For those who are unaware from the summer break, there is to be a extra division created at the Premier (Step 3) and First Divisions (step 4) for the 2018/19 season.This will alter the usual way that Promotions and Relegations will take place between the Evo-Stik Premier and the Evo-Stik North and South (which will also affect the other 2 Feeder Leagues and the 14 County Divisions (at Step 5) for the goals for this season.

The Formats will change as follows:
Promotion from the Evo-Stik Premier and the National Leagues will remain the same (1 up as Champion, then a Playoff between 2nd through to 5th place) however only 1 team this season will be relegated to Step 4.

For the 2017-18 Season, as well as the Champion of each of the Six Divisions, the Runners Up will also be promoted Automatically HOWEVER The Third Place side with the best playing record in all 6 Leagues (The North and South Divisions, The Evostik League Southern Central and South & West and the Bostik [formally Ryman League] North and South) on Points per Game record (this normally called the AGM Cup in the Evostik NPL Show) will be promoted as well. There will also be a Playoff in each of the 6 divisions on top of all this, meaning that overall there will be 19 teams promoted to Step 3

Again like the Premiers, only the teams finishing Last will be relegated to Step 5

Any Issues that may occur with teams expulsions,withdrawals or other events, then the FA's League Management Committee will decide the outcome.

As well as the usual format of the 14 Divisions (the leagues that normally affect us being the Northern League,North West Counties,Northern Counties East,Midlands League and United Counties), The Highest ranked side eligible for promotion (usually the Champions, but can be any side in the Top 3) from all 14 sides will be promoted as usual, along with the best 12 teams in the next eligible places across all the divisions will also be promoted. If any team is unable to promote, then the next team along will take their spot, which will continue until all 26 spots are filled.

Again if there are not enough teams to fill spots, the FA will decide on which teams will remain.

Basically in our division it will be the same format for promotion but only the bottom team will be relegated.

It is because they will be creating a Midland league at our level the following season, one we are likely to be in if we don't get promoted.
