RE-ORGANISATION OF NON-LEAGUE SYSTEM

1 week ago By Kevin Preece

Two up from Midland Football League Premier ?

The Football Association’s proposed re-structuring of the non-league system was presented to the league’s annual general meeting. This would have an effect on the Midland Football League Premier.

The proposed changes would come into force for the 2018/19 season.
The proposed changes are: A new Step 3 and a new Step 4 league to be formed; Step 3 divisions to play with 22 teams, Step 4 and Step 5 with 20 teams and Step 6 teams to have no more than 20 teams in them.

The highest placed club in each of the 14 Step 5 leagues in England will be automatically promoted. In addition to those 14, another 12 second-placed teams will also be promoted to Step 4. These 12 clubs will be the highest placed teams based on points per games during the season.

This means that potentially two teams from the Midland Football League Premier could be promoted out of the league at the end of next season.
Three teams will continue to be relegated from division one and three promoted from division two.

At the end of the forthcoming season the FA will also decide on any lateral movements of clubs between leagues at the same level in the national system.

Where next?
