Following advice from the Football Association's Welfare & Encouragement Division, the SAL is to consider a wholesale restructure of divisions and teams for season 2018/19. Instead of the current merit-based, hierarchical set-up, divisions will be organised on a local basis and named after colours. These divisions will be played before Christmas, with the teams re-organised after Christmas so that they are matched with teams of similar ability. In order to inspire players the post-Christmas leagues will be named after fearless animals, such as lions, tigers and bears.
It is appreciated that the last restructure took place only last season, but we hope that participants will understand that in the modern world it is of paramount importance that the League be ready and willing to act at short notice wherever an opportunity to improve the football experience presents itself.
Full details will be released in advance of the League AGM in June.
HAPPY 1 APRIL EVERYBODY!!!
