H & R facing a season on a very small budget to stay afloat too.

Seems to be something of a reality check going on at step two level. The median spend on players appears to be dropping somewhat if the conjecture mill is to be believed.

Not an expert so does this affect teams in our division?

Yes, Aldershot and Truro may get a reprieve.

That’s what I was hoping to hear.

Russ has gone for counselling.

:lol:


NO NO NO TRURO...I will write to the FA to say NO

Russ, you were on twitter the other week saying how difficult Welling was to get to.

FRIGGING WELLING!

Why don’t you just contact the National League and ask them if every Stones game, home or away, could be played in your back garden.

You’d probably still complain about the walk down the stairs and to the back door.

... But individual leagues could allow internal reprieves within that league :roll: :lol: :o

... Which means the National League can reprieve Aldershot... coz dem is in Souf so dem is still a member...
... but can the National League reprieve Truro? Dem is not a member...
... so The FA would have to intervene to get Truro back up from the Southern League...
... and The FA has said they won't do that :lol:

... So National League South would run with 21 clubs...
... and the NPL Premier would run with 23, if Gateshead are allowed in there :shock:

I'll believe that when I see it. Dig out those Cornish phrasebooks again.


Simple answer Alan, Truro are still a member of the league until the National League AGM, newly promoted clubs become members at the AGM of course

Season 2014/15, only 21 clubs in Conference South. It wouldn't be a 'bye', they just wouldn't have a game.

Yes, I think it was Sailsbury that was demoted quite late and the club that would have been their Boxing Day/NY Day opponents moaned long and hard about losing revenue. We were due to play them on the last day of the season, luckily we had nothing to play for. Some of our supporters and players had a kick about at the Vale instead.

It was Salisbury City - The Serial Bankrupts - that was initially demoted and then a few weeks later kicked out of the Conference in 2014 Predictably, a year later the club was reincarnated as Salisbury FC (2015) at Step 9 (Wessex League)

This is the likely outcome for Gateshead. It is highly unlikely if they do bother to appeal to FA in the 14 day window - a day or so before NL AGM - that it will be upheld. Even more doubtful they will be admitted straight into Evostik NPL The club will have to restart as Gateshead Soul - cf Darlington 1883 - at Step 10 Northern League Div 2 as the 21st club
