Pennine League or does new leagues suggest they're changing them? From what I've seen the Pennine League have ambitions of running the whole winter game with regionalisation where necessary. Good luck to them I say.
You're doing the right thing by your players playing where they want. I was merely suggesting the practicalities of a NCL application.
Pennine are committed to the traditional season and not taking over BARLA, the new Division/Divisions is on the agenda at the next BARLA meeting.
