    New Divisional & Promotion Structure

    Ok Guys,

    The board have discussed the Divisional structure for the new season.. We have decided to change thing a little..

    All 3 Divisions will now consist of different amounts of Teams..

    The main reason for this is that we feel Division 1 should have more emphasis and we felt that the smaller divisions made it that it was like a revolving door each season..

    So now Divisions will look like this..

    • Division 1 will consist of 10 teams.. All teams will play each other twice(Home & Away)...
    • Division 2 will consist of 8 teams.. All teams will play each other twice(Home & Away) with 3 extra rounds added..
    • Division 3 will consist of 6 teams.. All teams will play each other 3 times(Home & Away) with 2 extra rounds added...


    Now you say, that means Division 1 plays 1 more round in each form then Divisions 2 & 3

    Yes

    That week less in the lower divisions will be for Playoffs which have also changed format..

    Promotion/Playoffs have often rewarded teams who finished in low positions in above divisions, Teams for example in D2 may have missed auto promotion by 1 point but have come up against a team who struggled all season in D1, and in the playoff were held to a draw or just got beaten on the day... Well we decided that we would change things a little..

    • The Bottom 3 teams in Division 1 will be Automatically relagated...
    • Teams who finish 1st and 2nd in Division 2 will gain Automatic Promotion, whilst 3rd and 4th will playoff for the 3rd promotion position..
    • The Bottom 2 Teams from Division 2 will be Automatically relegated..
    • The Team who wins Division 3 will gain Automatic Promotion, with 2nd and 3rd playing off for the 2nd Promotion position...

    We feel that this will make Division 1 the true "Premier League" which will lead to more rivalries etc..

    Teams Divisions will be revealed in the next week or so..

On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    We are probably still a couple of weeks away.. Trading closes on the 2nd of June and we would need at least a week if not more to get stuff ready after that...

    Sounds brilliant.


    In fact, why not call Division one "Premier Divison" or something special.

    ACT
    Lancashire
    Leicestershire

    Western Province

    Division 2

    After Trading we will run some friendlies for all teams, and then hopefully get into it...

    Honestly wasn't expecting Divison 2. Hopefully we can justify our spot there, though...
