Having congratulated Scunny I should also wish Lucs all the best for their play-off game on the 27th against Blaydon - having both come down from Nat2 last season (both on 53 points) it promises to be an almighty tussle!
Just picking up on a couple of other threads their appears to be shortages in both N2S & SW Prem due to the plethora of Northern & Midlands clubs being relegated from up above and thus being returned back to their own regions
If that is the case, given the location of Lucs, I guess they may be heading south one way or the other win or lose
Any thoughts? Particularly from Lucs followers

Stourbridge and Hinckley must also be in the mix. Being so far west may save Lucts, but I hope Blaydon sneak it a it would be even closer than the mighty Wharfedale for us.

Thanks Cobbler, most certainly squeaky bum time having rushed to a 17-0 lead, Broadstreet then scored a great try under the posts followed by a penalty on the stroke of halftime to make it 10-17. 2 separate yellow cards didn’t help the cause and 2 kickable penalties later we were working hard to keep Broadstreet out. In the last 10 we camped on their line and only great defence prevented us scoring.

I know it will all depend on mileage calculations but can't see how Stourbridge and Hinckley will come out on least distance to travel compared with Leominster (Lucs) Yes there is a glut of clubs in N2S from the South East but equally so there are a clutch of Bristol clubs in addition to Taunton and Redruth

Congratulations Scunny and good luck Lucs in the play off we will miss our trips to you next year. Really sorry to see Derby, Litchfiled and Syston go down and I hope you bounce back quickly.

Sorry to interlope into your forum but couldn't see any threads that would be suitable for my question and having searched the RFU website could not glean any information on play-offs lower than Midlands Prem. So my question is how does promotion and relegation work when you get down to Midlands levels 2 and 3 which contains 4 regional sub-divisions sorted geographically. For example, In Midlands 3 East (South) Leicester Forest won and Northampton Casuals were second. Presumably Leicester Forest will be playing next season in Midlands 2 East (South) but where will Northampton Casuals play next season ? Is it 2 up or just 1 up or is there a play-off situation between them and second bottom from the above division ?
Many thanks for any help on this.

FP - you don't do too badly yourself with your posts spread far and wide across RM!!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
Actually I'm not 100% sure I was correct previously - I think it may be the 2nd placed team with the better playing record that gets promoted (without the need for a Play-off) otherwise it would have to be 4 up and 4 down which seems a bit extreme especially in leagues with fewer teams

I'm sure all leagues that have 2 feeding one send up both winners and play-off the 3rd promotion (with 3 relegated). If one league feeds one (as per WR's example I think), it is 2 up, 2 down.

No play offs that far down Cobbler e.g. Northampton Casuals (who finished 2nd in Midlands3 East (South) have already declared themselves as promoted so top 2 from that division go straight up to Midlands2 East (South) and likewise with clubs playing at Level 8 and below
In summary there are only 4 play off games in the Midlands which are all due to be played on 27th April and are listed on RFU website
The assumption in my previous post was wrong

I'm told Saturday's Sandbach game against Sheffield has a venue change. Now at Sheffield Hallam's facility at Bawtry Road. Other side of the City near Meadowhall.
