In the Central Midlands league, perennial strugglers Cromford have merged with local rivals Wirksworth Town to become....wait for it....Cromford and Wirksworth Town.

The new club will be based at Cromford’s old Ground at Cromford Meadows.

I'd have thought it would make more sense for the two Wirksworth clubs to merge. They're in the same division, from the same town.

But no Town have merged with...Cromford?

Change of name and league -
Morpeth Mighty Oaks have renamed themselves Ashington Oaks and are moving from the North Eastern Christian Fellowship League to the North East Combination League (the replacement league of the Newcastle Corinthians League).
Presumably they’re moving from Morpeth to Ashington too.

So in the event of the merger being off, who would take up the place in the SWPL? Cronies or Topsham.

From what I have read the merger was of mutual benefit. Cronies had the team, but not the ground, Topsham had the ground, but not the team.

As promotions into the new SWPL setup seemingly don't take into account that you're actually rubbish at playing football (I.e. Watcombe Wanderers at present) and is entirely bsed on the ground you play at, I'd assume Topsham Town will take it, alone?

Neither will be in the SWPL as we are now only running Step 6.

The new Devon League had previously had applications from both Cronies and Topsham Town prior to the talk of a merger, will find out if both wish still to proceed at the Devon League meeting on Tuesday.

Was there really any need for the comment (and error that its "the new SWP set up") about being "actually rubbish at playing football" ?

Thought this forum was better than that.

Apologies for getting the SWPL and the new Devon setup mixed up.

But I'd say my other comment that you've take offence to was a fair comment. I'm not the one that's just created two new unnecessary divisions at Step 7 for Devon and has had to drag some of the dregs from Devon's feeder league's to fill it.

Relatively speaking as a Step 8 Premier Division side last season, Watcombe weren't very good at playing football!

Confirmed that Topsham Town & Cronies merger is NOT happening.

Topsham Town will be playing in the new Devon League but Cronies will not be.

I understand that talks are ongoing to determine if the previous groundshare where Cronies played Home games at Topsham (in the Devon & Exeter) will still continue.

Staffs County league side (and former WMRL members) Red Star Alma were talking of folding a few weeks ago, after their backer pulled out and they had no ground to play on.

It now seems the are to keep going as Bloxwich United, but no details as yet of what league they will play in, or where.

Looks like they are staying in SCSL. Don't where they will be playing

One to keep an eye on - per Combined Counties website: "We are awaiting confirmation of a name change, namely Kensington Borough to be re-named Kensington & Ealing Borough." Still playing at Leatherhead, Surrey, though...Crazy

Looking at the "proof copy" of SCSL handbook that I have received, it appears that Bloxwich, nee Red Star Alma will be playing at the same ground as last season, Old Red Lion Ground.

The league has now confirmed this change of name (Hammersmith will have to wait..).

Hi Paul, perhaps, if they intend to continue playing at Leatherhead, then there are a few more Borough names they could add to their name. They could challenge for longest club name in football??? Talking of Leatherhead did I read on here somewhere that they could move at some stage to River Lane or is that just a 4G cage etc & used by Leatherhead Youth. Is it same venue though presumably much changed used by Mole Valley in Coco about 10 years ago. Do any adult teams use it now. Sorry off topic but just popped into my head.

Smile

There was a suggestion a while ago that Leatherhead may move to River Lane, where their youth set-up is based, but they subsequently committed to staying at Fetcham Grove. Dave 56 will know better than me if the idea might be resurrected but I suspect it's now dead.

The River Lane ground is indeed the old Combined Counties ground of Mole Valley and it is much changed. Floodlit and 3G, spectator access down one side but there are two seated stands (same unusual design as at Team Solent) and a decent little clubhouse. A very good little set up. I don't think any other adult clubs use it but I could be mistaken, again Dave 56 is the man.

(EDIT: Leatherhead have occasionally played pre-season friendlies at River Lane so, if anyone's really keen to get there for an adult game, keep an eye on this summer's schedule).

I thought there was a ruling around not having "university" in a teams name. May have completely misunderstood that myself though.

No but there is a restriction on how high University sides can go in the NLS, I troduced after Team Bath. Seemed a silly rule to me at the time and it still does.
