I am now in a
position to share the proposed league structure for next season.
Italics denote a promoted team while bold represents a team that has
returned to the league structure after a year's absence (or a new team in
one case). All these teams have been placed in the division they most
recently entered except where they have requested otherwise. I have
tried to avoid relegating teams this season.
CAPITALS ARE NOW
USED FOR EMPHASIS - THE FINAL DECISION FOR THE LEAGUE STRUCTURE AND FORMAT
BELONGS TO THE AGM. I AM MERELY SETTING UP A PROPOSAL THAT CAN BE
ACCEPTED OR AMENDED AS THE AGM WISHES. THE ONE RESTRICTION ON THE AGM
IS THAT THEY CANNOT DENY RELEGATION TO AN EXISTING TEAM.
WOODHOUSE CUP (11 teams)
Bradford A, Calderdale A, Harrogate A, Huddersfield, Hull DCA
A, Leeds, Rose Forgrove A, Sheffield A, Wakefield,
York A, York B
IM BROWN (9 teams)
Alwoodley A, Alwoodley B, Calderdale B, Harrogate
B, Hull DCA B, Ilkley Dragons, Rose Forgrove B, Sheffield
B, York C
SILVER ROOK (6 teams)
Bradford B, Harrogate C, Holmfirth, Settle,
West Leeds, York D
promotions. Bold denotes re-entrant or wholly new teams.]
Doncaster have been
unable to re-enter this season.
The next piece of
work for myself is to draw up a working calendar of fixture dates although
I can't guarantee this will be available prior to the AGM (this is due to
being able to obtain information from third parties, notably the 4NCL and
therefore out of my control).
