At a recent meeting of the Competitions Committee, the current league structure of 10:10:6 was discussed. It was felt that having only 6 teams in Grade 3 was not sustainable, and we should look to move to a 10:8:8 structure for the 2020 season. With AKK withdrawing for 2019, we are left with a 10:9:6 structure, and the natural move would be towards a 10:8:7 set up

In the current climate, the chances of new teams entering in 2020 feels unlikely, so we must work with what we have, and look at the implications for promotion & relegation for this season.

Should we retain the current number of teams the following relegation and promotion positions would be expected -

Grade 1 Relegation - 2 Teams

Grade 2 Promotion - 2 Teams

Grade 2 Relegation - 2 Teams

Grade 3 Promotion - 1 Team

If the Grades see a further team drop out prior to the cut off date in January 2020, and the total number of teams drops down to 24, Grade 1 teams must be made aware, that the structure of Grade 1 will be reduced to 8 teams for 2020.

This would mean an 8:8:8 Grades structure for the 2020 season. This is felt to be the only fair way to move forward based on the lower grades continually re-structuring and Grade 1 remaining constant with 10 teams. It should be noted that the fixturing will be reviewed to ensure we maximise the Saturdays available.

To achieve the 8:8:8 structure, 3 teams would be relegated from Grade 1.

Grade 1 Relegation - 3 Teams

Grade 2 Promotion - 1 Team

Grade 2 Relegation – 3 Teams

Grade 3 Promotion – None

Should team numbers fall below 24, it would be expected that the number of teams in Grade 3 would be reduced.
