5 teams had their bid rejected from NCL3 and 4 bids from outside were rejected (Kippax's was going to be recommended to be accepted had they fulfilled their fixtures). St Albans never applied otherwise they'd have stood a good chance of acceptance IMO. Kippax, Bramley and Hornets scratched fixtures anyway but hopefully can find a lower division to join. Wizards can join NW Men's premier, Bristol and St Albans can join the tier 3 midlands league as can some ambitious tier 4 sides like Northampton (who applied for NCL) and some reserve team of semi pro clubs. Coventry and Nottingham can choose between there and NCL.
With respect to the other teams, it's a shame for Wizards also, haven't they been there since the start of that league? When apparently not many clubs were interested in that league.
