Next season what do you envisage likely promotion criteria to be from the Northern League Division 1?

Top 3(it actually states this in the Nonleague Paper).


Great stuff, come on you two blues!

I asked as I was lead to believe there would be the winners up automatically and then some kind of inter league playoffs for the runners up. Was this the initial plan?

I can see a few clubs spending big next year for promotion if 3 spots are up for grabs. Probably the best shot for a while for some clubs. Hebburn, Consett, Stockton, all clubs with genuine ambition, Shildon, West Auckland, North Shields and Whitley Bay all clubs with good support and the means to go for promotion.
Pick three from that lot and you can't go wrong.
I did consider the longest serving club in the history of the second oldest football league in the world but they will be distracted by their centenary year celebrations and likely looking forward to the next 100yrs in the Northern League.

They'd be pleased as punch to finish 3rd and be promoted. No matter what it took.

Hebburn and shildon have outlined promotion ambitions as well as bishop but do the rest really want it? I know west auckland have been very much against it. There task will be simple next season, if they are in the top 3 near end of season, rest key players to loose games

I wonder how many clubs will want to race to the bottom. Whitley Bay never seem keen to go back up.

Said a couple of years ago that after about five years the whole dynamics of our local football scene will change, the Evo-Stick east division will become very appealing for most clubs in the North league, pretty much every other week there’s probably a local team involved against another local team, yes there will be the odd long distance away trip, but on the great scale of things, next to nothing, I’ll use Morpeth as example, look at their attendances this season, very very encouraging, well done Morpeth (that’s coming from a Shields Supporter haha), like I said the week regarding Dunston, embrace this wonderful adventure, you’ll enjoy it.

I seem to remember a rumour that Morpeth were going to challenge enforced promotion, now look at them. Saw some pictures of their ground last night, also much improved.

I remember going to Morpeth not that long ago in ENL2 and remarking that CLS supporters made up most of the crowd. Great to see how far Morpeth have come now and happy that they embraced the evo 1 and won at a canter. Will be interesting next season if S Shields miss out on promotion ( hope they get it) with the games between the two and the animosity that still rankles with Morpeth. Finally great job done by Ken Beattie, Nicky Gray and everyone involved up at Craik Park.

Sure will. Imagine if the enforced promotion had come in 30 year ago or even during the last decade
