The idea of four Leagues is a non-starter for me. Relegated sides from Level 3 playing mid table sides from Level5 is madness and won't be good for the game



Read it properly!

The first column is N1 (level 3), the other 3 are the 3 level 4 divisions.

Thanks Raider999 - my mistake (partly) as read it on my phone so all squidged up together but still doesn't explain how those mid table Mids Prem sides make the cut for Level 4 and Newport don't????

Sorry, can't help you there as I have no idea of the standings of clubs in the Midlands Premier

Yes Thatbloke, apologies to Newport. Insert them for Nuneaton and swop Chester and Macclesfield.
Leicester Lions are familiar with several teams in SE.

Thanks Offside 194 but I still don't understand why you've got the other Mids Prem teams in there (Sandbach, Bridgnorth and Bromsgrove) My understanding, and that of Camquin I believe, is that only the top 2 in each of the regional Premier Leagues would be required to make up the necessary numbers

It's only an exercise and a bit of fun Thatbloke.
Who knows what the RFU are planning for top two levels?
Happy New Year to all!

Whatever the NCA /RFU decide they must maintain the integrity of the leagues.

Happy and safe New Year to all

That's because Thatbloke is assuming 14 teams in Premiership & Championship which necessitates an extra 4 teams from level 5, whereas Camquin assumed the top 2 levels remain at 12.

I understand that we must consider what is best for the players. However do not forget that many clubs , unless they have a "Sugar Daddy" rely heavily on our membership fee gate money and hospitality !!!
I do not know what your club is if any. But I suggest the supporters there would fell similar to me.
Please do not be so dismissive
 



It’s irrelevant.  Just go to Devon whenever you want. Take in a game of rugby too.

Why do all the leagues have to have the same number in?

Why shove Chester into some geographical minefield to satisfy a number?

If some are 16 so be it, or 14. Base it all on geography and if you’ve got some free Saturdays go on tour or play some again

You can choose not to level transfer - so Blaydon and Newport stay at level 4 so the new Northern conference is not overloaded. Wimbledon and Maidenhead gain promotion to balance numbers in the South West and South East.

Then in future years, if too few or too many teams from are relegated into a league you fix it by changing the numbers promoted or demoted in the feeder leagues. 

I think it was used in the earlier days of the league pyramid.
