Well we are no longer the furthest South in the northern league. Bishops Stortford 70 miles south of KLTFC now have that to contend with.
Tamworth back again in the same league as KLTFC, not the most welcoming place to go to.
South Shields being the beast of a journey up north

Makes a mockery of a regional competition when the Northern section has to extend as far south as Greater London (Bishops Stortford) to compile the league.
After this season top half of NLN & NLS should form a National league 1 , bottom half National league 2.
From then on top two teams automatic promotion + one further promotion via play-offs.
Effecting 3 up and 3 down throughout three National League tiers

Many years ago we were in the Midland league. Why not restructure to three feeder leagues? Additionally, to reduce travelling costs, the football league structure then consisted of a first and second division plus division three north and south. Think it used to be called common sense?

common sense does not come into the fashion these days elitism does; and financial greed ;gone are the days of good old football now it is like the proverbial skeikdown pardon the pun; or the oligarchs; you see many will go to see the ladies play soon, until the greedy entrepreneur get their greedy hands there as well;  :shark: :shark:

I fear that making the national leagues two tiered will make it financially a disaster for some clubs and they would withdraw or fold as they are very poorly supported.

Did they not appeal a similar decision a few years back ?   Lowestoft tried that when they were stuck in NLN.   Local Derby for them was Boston.   Didn’t do any good.

Football administrators have much in common with politicians.

Good luck with that!  :laughcry:
Squeaky bum time at Chelmsford, Braintree and possibly St Albans then if the appeal is in Stortfords favour
Don't know if its ever been mentioned but what about 3 leagues, Northern, MIDLAND and Southern. There could be winners promoted to the Premier along with a round robin of the 3 runners up to determine the 4th team promoted or am i in cloud cuckoo land.
Saying that it is now happening further down the leagues. Holbeach in Thurlow Nunn north, Dereham, Wisbech, March etc all playing 2022/23 in leagues that were not particularly kind to them.
