It's don't shoot the messenger time!

Having been a non league fan down south for many years the very common perception down there was one of "They don't want promotion as they then won't get a Wembley jolly"

This, I have to say caused a hell of a lot of resentment, similar to that voiced about those clubs who do financial doping these days, and the money that it was thought that clubs earned from a long Vase run fuelled these feelings.

Sadly, many, including myself were not aware of the issues facing clubs re travel, lack of encouragement from the NL hierarchy etc.

It would not be any kind of surprise to me if those lingering resentments aren't, in part at least, colouring the response that the NL now gets to proposals it puts forward. However, holding an EGM to discuss leaving the system does smack of petulance and will do little to help rebuild relationships.

I know that it takes two to have a discussion and find a solution but the club's who do want to go up have to make their voices heard to say that they will give it a go otherwise the same discussion will go round and round and round.

The other point that I would make, is that I have watched many teams up here that are the match (easily) of step 4 sides down south, and it's a bit like watching a Hollywood actor slumming it in a school play at times

Peacefully yours

Kenty

To save me going through 40 odd pages of this thread, is this restructuring happening this summer or next?
How many get relegated this season from Division 2?

It's this summer, TMCT, and no-one knows the answer to the second part yet. That will probably have to wait until the end of the season, when the FA Leagues Committee meets to decide all these issues.

Thanks Dave, I was golfing this morning and someone told me he had heard 5 were going down, Christ I thought that’s us right in the s””” if that’s true. Bedlington too ...

I'd be surprised if the bottom 5 themselves were relegated, can't comment on the status of/threats to the two named with ground issues. Ultimately, the Northern League will have no say in the matter

I heard that they'd agreed a share at Ashington for next season. No idea how true that is though!

I heard they were going back to Blyth next season. All had been sorted. The official reason for moving to Ashington was there was to many games to be played on their pitch at the end of the season, surely the Northern League would require undertakings if this was the case.

Surely that would be exactly the same next year as Blyth Town FC would still be playing there aswell?

I heard a whisper they were interesting in moving to Bedlington but might not be true like.

Our pitch can barely sustain one team, never mind a second!

The F.A. have emailed leagues & informed them that there will be no reprieves from step 4. Any extra promotions, beyond the winners & runners up. Will be offered to a 3rd placed side on an invitation basis only(nothing about it being on a ppg basis)! So this opens up the possibility of a 3rd EBAC NL side being promoted.

I guess so! Would West Auckland Town turn down a promotion, if it was offered to them?
I only ask, because I think they’ll end up 3rd!
