Interesting article in today's programme about that. Strange how so many clubs are almost on the same line of latitude! I may be a bit biased, given my location up here in darkest Lincolnshire, but I shall be pleased to get to some away games next season if we do go North. Very entertaining game even if we did not convert most of the chances we had. We were working the ball extremely well for much of the game. One more goal for Kabby!
with 4 Southern sides coming down, I'm not sure how City can avoid moving North........
Braintree is actually north of Oxford, but would the FA be solely guided by the lines of latitude, and not take transport links into consideration at all? It would seem very odd to think of Braintree as 'northern', but then we were all surprised surprised when City went north when they first reached Step 2, and Bishops Stortford were fuming when they went north in 2011! I think it will depend a lot on whether Gloucester stay at Step 2 or not.
Do not forget the promoted teams from the Isthmian and Southern leagues, maybe upto three teams may have to move depending on location
Indeed, and it's a bit of a lottery on how promotion from Step 3 will go. Apparently "...2018–19 promotion to Step 2: Six teams overall will be promoted to Step 2. These will comprise the leading club in each Step 3 division, together with two of the four divisional play-off winners, following inter-divisional play-offs.". Top four, at the moment, are Farsley, Kettering, Weymouth and Dorking (2 'southern' and 2 'northern'), but I guess the 'inter-divisional play-offs' could add another two 'southern' clubs (or two 'northern' clubs) to the final list of the six promoted sides. It could be an interesting end to the season.
