So we beat Wotton Basset 6-1. Basset beat Marlborough 4-3 .... so obviously we should beat Marlborough. It doesn't make sense?! This league is just so random other than one consistent factor - Kintbury will take the title ..... again! Maybe explains why they came across from Berkshire ..... Does their perpetual winning of the title mean a block on Wiltshire League sides getting into the Western League??
No it doesn't. As previously stated - it doesn't matter too much (within reason - say top six) where you finish, if the teams above you do not apply or do not have the necessary ground grading then you can apply (before the end of December in the current season). It is then up to the Western League to consider your application and if your ground etc meets the requirements then you can get promoted.
No point in applying unless the ground is likely to meet the requirements. Current plans suggest we will not be able to apply this season but with the works progressing (pitch and car park work so far) let's hope it's not too far away.
Robin Reminder: I no longer hold a committee position, I'm just aware of the approximate requirements - please don't ask though, I cannot answer accurately!
