Not confirmed officially but just been told Bolsover have resigned from EMCL.


Now officially confirmed, as if 6.00pm they have withdrawn.
No decision on replacement.

Being realistic, they're probably "separate" in the sense that teams like Thame Rangers and Brackley Town Saints are from their first teams: supposedly separate but in reality just a Reserve side. Either that or we've got a situation akin to Biggleswade FC, but if that's the case their sudden elevation makes no sense (unless the argument is that last season's Eynesbury Rovers Reserves became Eynesbury United and the Reserve team for this current season are the new team).

When I came across this recently, the "Eynesbury United" twitter feed was, in the past season, tweeting updates for Eynesbury Rovers Reserves.

When I Google "Eynesbury United twitter", I get the text below as the first result. As you can see, the twitter handle was "@ResRovers" but the twitter feed no longer exists (presumably deleted recently). My best guess is "Reserves become United and new team are Reserves" or , equivalently, "Reserves leave to form United and Rovers find new players for Reserves".

Being legalistic, I would probably suggest that United are the new team because they've left Rovers.

No decision on replacement.

So why have Bolsover taken this course of action? They certainly had little complaint about the move to the EMCL and after the torrid time they had last season were talking in terms of new beginnings.

Just to add that the rule allows for a vacancy created before the AGM to be filled at the FALC's discretion. As the rule is silent on whether the AGM of the league whose club is chosen to fill this vacancy has already taken place, there would appear to still be scope for the EMCL to gain a replacement club.

If FC Bolsover resign AT the AGM, though, then we might be in unchartered territory! I dare say all will be revealed at the AGM shortly.


On past form the LMC seem to prefer promotion to reprieves so my guess is Clay Cross to the EMCL.

Aren't constitutions basically rubber stamped at League AGMs?

Not when a team pulls out just before the AGM! As detailed elsewhere on here, the vacancy can still be filled irrespective of any other league AGMs having taken place but whether the FA choose to do so remains to be seen.

The King's Lynn & District Sunday League is no more. Tellingly, this story also reveals that the Norwich & District Sunday League has fallen from 117 to 55 teams.

Eynesbury United are a completely separate club to Eynesbury Rovers. They were formed (last season) by a group of players who left Eaton Socon FC who wanted to play at a higher level of football than the Cambs League. The original plan was to apply for UCL/Spartan South Mids Football for this season but they missed the cut off date for applications.
The agreement between the club is for a ground share only so that they can aim for promotion in the future.

IF that is the case - then why have they gone straight in at Step 7?

And why the temporary takeover of the now deleted Eynesbury Rovers Reserves twitter account (see post https://nonleaguematters.co.uk/...i?post=935461#935461)?

It seems the only semi logical answer is that Eynesbury United, a new team last season as previously posted, have managed to take over Rovers reserves & separated them from 1st team thus being able to take reserves position at step7.

But no club should be allowed to effectively steal another club's league status (outside MK, anyway), why would Rovers led that happen? . It seems more likely that United are a pseudo reserve team and Rovers reserves are effectively a third team.

I agree. I was just stating what seems to have happened to enable the teams to take up the positions they have. I am not saying it is the right way of going about it. A less convoluted route would be for existing reserves to simply mock a separation from 1st team & change name as many clubs seem to have done before. The same result is achieved in that Eynesbury have teams at step 6 & 7. The fact that they are both playing at same ground suggests it was not a hostile takeover!!

Wilby Rising Sun were playing under that name last season. I think they were Wellingborough Rising Sun before that. Many of the players had WRS tracksuits. Not sure if the original Wilby FC folded or merged with WRS.

Now that the step 7 lineups have been released, here is a summary of the changes at Steps 1-7.

A quieter year than has been the ase the past few seasons.


Closures
Bradford Olympic
Great Baddow
Harton & Westoe Colliery Welfare

Name Changes
AFC Emley change their name to Emley
AFC Hornchurch change their name to Hornchurch
Bretton North End change their name to Peterborough North End Sports
East Yorkshire Carnegie change their name to East Hull
Enfield 1893 change their name to Enfield
Eynesbury Rovers Reserves change their name to Eynesbury United
St. Stephen’s Borough change their name to Saltash Borough
The Newcastle Corinthians League has changed it name to the Northeastern Combination

Mergers
Aylesbury and Bedgrove Dynamos merge to form Aylesbury Vale Dynamos
Ball Haye Green absorb Staffordshire Moorlands
Bretton North End and Peterborough Sports development section have merged to form Peterborough North End Sports
Cronies and Topsham Town merge to form Topsham Cronies
North Ferriby Athletic have merged into North Ferriby as their reserve side (North Ferriby Reserves)

Unknown Status
Bedmond Sports (not showing in Herts Senior County Prem despite avoiding relegation)
Bushey Sports (not showing in Herts Senior County Prem despite finishing third last term)
Headingley (not showing in the West Yorkshire League despite not finish in the relegation zone)
Hedinghams United (not showing in Essex & Suffolk Border League Prem – despite avoiding bottom two)
Welbeck Lions (resigned from the Central Mids, uncertain if joining another league)
Wormingford Wanderers (not showing in Essex & Suffolk Border League Prem – despite avoiding bottom two)

Leagues closing
The Andover & District League and Salisbury & District League (Saturday section) have merged (new league name not yet revealed
St Edmundsbury League closes down
Tyneside Amateur League is absorbed into the Northern Alliance as its new Division Three
West Riding County Amateur League closes down (with the bulk of its remaining clubs joining the Yorkshire Amateur League)



Looking through the Hellenic website yesterday I noticed that Pegasus Juniors are showing as Hereford Pegasus on the League site. They appear to have a re-modeled club badge with that name on it, but the Club website and twitter pages don't refer to Hereford Pegasus at all as they are still Pegasus Juniors if you search for them. Anyone heard anything?
