Shaw Lane resign from Northern Prem
« on: June 08, 2018, 05:45:18 PM »
So I would guess a move back north for Hednesford or Coalville on the grounds that they were playing their last season and Banbury will be moved to Southern Central.

By about 700metres! But they are more central and closer to the Northern teams.

Hednesford Town Football Club have this evening been informed that we have been moved from the Southern League Central to the Northern Premier League – following the resignation of Shaw Lane AFC from the league.

As soon as the football club received this news it was decided that an appeal will be submitted – with the management team having spent the last six weeks working hard to recruit a new squad

A club statement reads as follows:

“Hednesford Town Football Club will appeal this decision on the grounds that there are two clubs in the Southern League Central Division who are more northerly than us. These being Coalville Town and Kings Lynn Town.”

We shall aim to bring you the news of the appeal as soon as possible.

Good news that it is not us but Banbury are a better team than Hednesford.
I can't see they stand a chance with their appeal  as it will only result in probable appeals from Coalville and Lynn should they be moved and the process could go on for ages.

Given the timing, and having announced Banbury are going across. I wonder if the SLC might run as a 23 team league next year, with an extra team relegated.

Also Banbury were in the SLS before this announcement. Any idea which Step 4 club is being promoted/reprieved for to fill the step 3 gap?

Coalville and King's Lynn have also been working hard to recruit a new squad! So that argument doesn't wash.

It's Location, Location, Location, Hednesford!

Hednesford Town are called the Pitmen. Now with a nickname like that should they play in the North or South.
