Can't say as I blame them but who on earth are Distington going to play meaningful games with? Unless of course they decide to reapply.

For those who haven't been Ellenbrough (Elbra to the locals) is a super ground by any level of the conference's standards and well worth the trip.

(should they be accepted). Seaton is pretty tight and quite a small pitch from memory but provided their changing rooms are Ok I can't see why they wouldn't get in.

Nice modern clubhouse at Seaton, just below the pitch, on the site of the village's former railway station. I'm starting to think if Batley Boys can be accepted by the NCL, anybody can.

Seen suggestions Bentley (Yorkshire League) and North West League duo Dalton and Walney Central are pondering applications. Walney Central have played at NCL level previously. There are claims Seaton Rangers are to apply, as you say, but Cumberland League rivals Ellenborough Rangers won't because they don't have the required youth set-up.

Dalton currently only have a team in the Barrow and district league, but have already won this and do have a thriving junior set up.

The ground is terrific for any level of amateur RL, fully enclosed and railed, small amount of cover, clubhouse and floodlights. I have yet to see a game there but called in last season on the way back from Barrow Island,

If they could attract players of a sufficient calibre my guess is their facilities would easily pass muster.

Seen a claim there have been "six strong expressions of interest" though full applications have yet to be lodged "in the format required by the NCL".

The same source says the withdrawal of Salford City Roosters (formerly Eccles) "will not trigger an automatic replacement".

Word seems to be no new teams will be admitted for 2020. Management committee decision, apparently. Thirteen clubs in Division Three. Every division will have 24 fixtures.

Confirmation, from the NCL, of the previous post (courtesy totalrl.com):

Kingstone Press National Conference League bosses have postponed plans to expand the competition. A five-division structure had been envisaged for 2020 but the flagship league will, confirmed administrator Alan Smith, continue with four sections next year.

He said: "One reason is that some Division Three clubs said that 26 games were too many. The NCL will therefore be looking at a restructure for 2021 and the NCL Management has decided not to accept any new teams for 2020. Division Three will therefore have thirteen teams, playing 24 games. Promotion and relegation will remain the same for 2020."

Clubs that have applied this time only to miss out are Dalton and Walney Central (the latter former members), both of Furness, and West Cumbria outfits Ellenborough Rangers and Seaton Rangers, together with Bentley (Doncaster) and Wyke (Bradford).

Structure for 2020 (no replacement for Salford City Roosters/Eccles, who quit the NCL midway through last season):

PREMIER DIVISION
: West Hull (champions), Wath Brow Hornets (Minor Premiers), Hunslet Club Parkside, Thatto Heath Crusaders, Underbank Rangers, Siddal, Egremont Rangers, Lock Lane and Rochdale Mayfield, together with Division One champions Pilkington Recs, York Acorn and Featherstone Lions.

DIVISION ONE: Leigh Miners Rangers, Thornhill Trojans and Kells (all relegated), Milford, Stanningley, Wigan St Patricks, Myton Warriors, Oulton Raiders and Skirlaugh, plus Division Two champions West Bowling, Ince Rose Bridge and Hull Dockers.

DIVISION TWO: The relegated trio of Saddleworth Rangers, Normanton Knights and Dewsbury Moor Maroons, together with Wigan St Judes, Barrow Island, Crosfields, Bradford Dudley Hill, Clock Face Miners and Beverley. Woolston Rovers (as champions), Hunslet Warriors and Dewsbury Celtic have been promoted from the bottom tier.

DIVISION THREE: East Leeds, Shaw Cross Sharks and Askam (all relegated), plus Heworth, Batley Boys, Drighlington, Leigh East, Waterhead Warriors, Oldham St Annes, Hensingham, Millom, Gateshead Storm and Eastmoor Dragons.
