All at Whitstable Town would like to congratulate the Champions of each Ryman Division (Premier – Wealdstone FC, North – VCD Athletic & South – Peacehaven & Telscombe) together with the Champions of our sister leagues within the pyramid; our best wishes also to those that are participating in this weeks Play Off fixtures.
At a recent meeting of the Football Associations Leagues Committee, discussion took place and agreement was reached on how clubs would be reprieved at Step 4 (this includes Ryman North & South) at the end of the current Season, if necessary, following the increase in numbers in the Isthmian League Step 4 divisions and the sad demise of other clubs within the pyramid.
It was agreed that the following would apply:-
If a vacancy arises and clubs at Step 4 are to be reprieved, the four clubs in 21st position in the Northern Premier and Southern Leagues and the two clubs in 22nd position in the Isthmian League would be ranked by the average points per game played. In the event of all of the above six clubs being reprieved and there are further vacancies available the next two places would be allocated to the clubs in 23rd position in the Isthmian League ranked on the average points per game played.
It is expected that the 2014-15 structure of the Non League Pyramid be published sometime in May.
