I can help with some history of how the promoted team has performed since level 2 became the Championship (in years marked * there were additional relegation PO games):

2010* - Bees - 12th Won 0 games out of 22
2011* - Esher - 9th W7
2012* - LS - 9th W6
2013 - Jersey - 11th W6
2014 - Ealing - 12th W5
2015 - Donny - 9th W8
2016 - Ealing - 11th W6
2017 - Richmond - 10th W5/20
2018 - Hartpury - 10th W

So it is tough to get used to level 2, although the promoted side has always survived for at least one season, with the exception of Ealing in 13/14.

This season's new team, Cov, have W5 D1 out of 13 games and lie 8th, so they are on track to achieve the best finish by a promoted side

A pitch, two sets of posts, and somewhere to hitch a horse.
It's what gives the Prem sides reason and right to sneer at us and constantly plan for ringfencing.

(Slight exaggeration, maybe).


Kimbo's assertion that ground requirements at level 2 aren't onerous is pretty accurate I'd say...

There are criteria - see section 5 'Grounds' in the doc below, but they aren't especially detailed/restrictive

One thing we know is that whoever win Nat 1 this season will have one of the lowest points totals. 
They can only exceed the scores of Richmond with 116 and Jersey with 119.
Though both of those survived.
The scores were to some extent a measure of the other sides.
Jersey was pushed by Ealing and Blackheath, Richmond by Hartpury, Ampthill and Blackheath.

Obviously the 9th March game when Elthamians visit Ampthill is crucial.
