Promotion and Relegation

At the March Board meeting it was agreed that the Board would outline promotion/relegation structures for the 2017 season so that the structures for the 2018 season would be based on leagues of 8 teams.  Below structures for the 2107 will be brought before the delegates at the April Board meeting for ratification.

  • Premier League            Promotion not an issue.  Bottom team relegated to Sen 1 in 2018.
  • Senior 1                        Winner promoted to Premier in 2018.  No relegation in the 2107 season.
  • Senior 2                        Winner / Runner up promoted to Senior 1 in 2018.  Bottom team           
                                          relegated in 2017.
  • Senior 3                        Winner / Runner up promoted to Senior 2 in 2018.  Bottom team
                                          relegated in 2017
  • Senior 4                        Winner promoted in 2018 to Senior 3.   -  No relegation in 2017.
  • Senior 5                        Winner / Runner up promoted in 2018 to Senior 4. Bottom team
                                          relegated in 2017.
  • Senior 6                        Winner promoted in 2018 to Senior 5.  No relegation in 2017.
  • Senior 7                        Winner promoted in 2018 to Senior 6.

The above is based on the same teams entering leagues in 2018.  Should a team/s drop out or not enter in 2018 leagues, then we will have to make a decision based on the information available.  However we are committed to leagues of 8 going forward.
