SW League Structure - 2016-2017

Work is continuing to produce the fixtures for next season and it is anticipated they will be published by the end of the month. 

The make up of each league is now finalised (subject to any appeals concerning level transfers).  The leagues at levels 5-7 are constructed using the level transfer regulations – where clubs are moved between leagues, and in some cases, divisions based on the mileage involved travelling between teams in any one league.  This avoids the uncertainty over the number of teams relegated at each level and removes the so-called cascade effect.  At level eight and below the leagues follow the usual rules of promotion and relegation in the main, although in the county leagues there are some variations to cater for the needs of 2nd, 3rd and 4th teams. 

This structure is presented for information only.  It is not open to negotiation.  Any enquiries should initially be directed to the League Co-ordinating Secretary, Mike Gee but may then be forwarded to those responsible for the leagues in a given area.
