Parkway

Recommended Posts

In the past when teams pulled out (ie street) they would automatically be given bottom spot thus reprieving another club (ie Barnstaple). This is no longer a set rule, reprieves are handed out last. If there is a vacancy at step 4, if will go to best runner up ppg nationally which is Parkway. Everything is up in the air until fa make announcement. Barnstaple may stay up or Parkway might go up depending on fa decision. Personally think there should be more of a set rule

Spot on Rob, because with a pyramid system that the FA are trying to run and even further develop, it should all be based on promotion and relegation. So the first thing that happens is those in relegation spots at the end of the season are demoted and those in promotion spots are promoted, whatever system of promotion that exists between various leagues. It might be two down two up, may be a three involved, but what ever it is that is what happens at the end of the season. If a club decides to seek permission to be relegated and moved from the league they are in for all sorts of reasons, that is a separate matter all together. That move, if granted by the Fa, would create a vacancy in that league. The next club in line would than be promoted, it could be ppg, it could be play offs, 'toss of a coin' almost anything, but set within the rules. 

If you have teams that want to 'go back' to a league, than it must be a drop of at least two leagues, or when a club has promotion forced on them they just 'kick the ball around' for a few games, say we want to go back and all meaning of a pyramid is lost.

Agreed. Current situation isn’t fair on clubs who want to start making plans for next season, as well as arrange preseason friendlies against teams in seperate leagues.

Believe that the FA are meeting this weekend to finalise the allocation of teams to specific leagues. Everything should be resolved at who is playing where early next week.

According to the Southern League website, Barnstable get a reprieve for the 2019/20 season and are not relegated.

Assume therefore that Parkway were not offered the option of promotionn?
