I know it’s a little early. But I’m interested to know which clubs left in the Wearside League have genuine ambitions to be promoted?
I know Boldon CA & Darlington RA both have the facilities. But I was wondering if any other clubs were developing there grounds?

If Newcastle Uni win their appeal then why bother develop your own ground? Simply pay the £120 promotion application fee then shop around right up to 31st March 2019 for a suitable ground to rent. If you're out of the running for a promotion qualification place in the League you can simply withdraw the application and all you lose is the £120 fee. If you improve your own ground you could be committing yourself to spending thousands of pounds and then may be pipped at the post by a team who has signed a tenancy on the morning of 31st March without spending another penny.

When do the Uni find out if they have been successful or not?

It’s usually a couple of days after the hearing. I reckon all the hearings were held last week. The F.A. has been consistent with the appeals outcomes. If there was a space in the step 6 league, then they upheld the appeal. All other appeals have failed!

My original question was which clubs are likely to apply for promotion next season? The most obvious ones will be the clubs that have suitable ground grading. I believe in the NA, Alnwick & Newcastle Uni will apply. In the Wearside, Boldon & Darlington RA will apply. In the NRL, Redcar Town will almost certainly apply, Stokesley have the facilities to apply & Boro Rangers have the ambitions to apply. I was wondering if there’s any other clubs in the region, that anyone was aware of?

I would expect an application going in from Hebburn Town Reserves, if they are up there again this season. An application from Sunderland West End wouldn't shock me either neither would one from Richmond Town.

There is a proposal on the table to lay a 3G or 4G pitch, with appropriate new facilities to match the required ground grading for the Northern League, at Ford Quarry, from some public funding or other. West End might want to wait until that is in place?

Hebburn Town Reserves can only be promoted, if there 1st team are promoted to the NPL1E. There’s has to be a 2 steps gap between 1st & reserves at step 6 & above.
As for Richmond, they need to do a lot to there ground & can they actually get the planning permission?

You snooze, you lose. Just do a Norman Tebbutt and get on yer bike for a couple of years if need be, then come back home if it's been improved to meet Step 6 criteria.

Worth £120 for Hebburn Town to spend if 1st team are promoted and they are going for it judging by their signings. No doubt I'll have the "Reserves teams are not allowed in the Northern League" on shortly. Richmond Town were looking at other options 2 or 3 seasons ago so I think they will do the same this season. Whether anything comes off is another matter but it has to be comsidered if you are not being allowed to improve your current facilities.

The NL rules are always overruled by the FA’s rules. The FA allows reserves/development squads to play at step 6. As long as the 1st teams are two steps higher. If a reserve side at step 7 apply for promotion, play at a ground with the correct grading, achieve a top 5 position & are the highest placed side that applies. Then they will be promoted & placed in the most relevant step 6 league.

In the NRL, Redcar Town are aiming to put hard standing down & erect a covered terrace. I believe they’ll be applying for promotion this season. This could mean that all 3 feeder leagues have applicants & potentially all have a promoted team.

Hebburn Town Reserves will apply for promotion to the EBAC NL, if their 1st team are in the promotion frame. Would they be the first Reserve side to play in the EBAC NL?

No.
Darlington Reserves and Hartlepool United Reserves were both involved in the 1980's.There may be more.
It is feasible to assume that Newcastle United "A" and Sunderland "A" were reserve sides and they were in the league in the early part of the last century.
