CLUBS APPLY TO FA FOR PROMOTION – UPDATE

Ten clubs from the feeder leagues in the region have applied for promotion to Step 6 in the National League System (our Division Two):
Newcastle Blue Star and Alnwick Town from the Northern Alliance.
Yarm and Eaglescliffe from the North Riding League.
Gateshead Leam Lane Rangers, Durham United, Durham Corinthians, Wolviston, Norton & Stockton Ancients Youth, FC Hartlepool and Darlington Town from the Wearside League.  (Darlington Town has been added to the list originally posted.)
Decisions about promotion and relegation, along with which league clubs are placed in, are made by the FA and applications by clubs in feeder leagues are to the relevant step rather than to specific leagues (such as the Ebac Northern League).
