Anyone know of any?

New clubs I've heard of:
Catterick Crusaders (think they may be North Yorkshire Stallions)
Darlington
North Yorkshire Broncos (new to open age but already ran juniors)
Beckenham Bears
Croydon?
A merged West London Sharks and South London Storm?

In the midlands there are to my knowledge no new clubs at open age but Grantham Gladiators are joining the junior league I think.

Hilton Park (Leigh) have appeared on twitter. Not sure where they sprang up from but think I read somewhere there was former Leigh East people involved.

Broncos are "Northallerton Broncos" according to their website url but are based just down the road from Catterick - even on Catterick Road!

Make of that what you will.

Think they changed name from Northallerton Broncos to North Yorkshire Broncos when they moved ground. Presumably they never bothered changing the URL

Now I'm confused. I though Northallerton were the Stallions. Was Broncos perhaps the name of their youth side?

I suspect they will be a army side
Carlsberg don't do Soldiers, but if they did, they would probably be Brits.

Northallerton Broncos were a junior side yes. Not sure if they were ever the same club as the Stallions but presumably they got on initially

only seen the teams in Div 4 I'm afraid and only by text. Shake out from some going to NCL and the two teams going to winter is that we lose a division (which means divisions are bigger I think - not seen all divisions yet) and the season starts earlier. Would have hoped that some merit league sides might have stepped up but I know one is only having their planning day this weekend so hopefully, some will apply to fully step-up.

I think it's already been pointed out that the club is looking like an amalgamation of a junior and open-aged club in that area and I'm sure the open-aged side is heavily reliant on soldiers..

Looking like division 3 is an A team division?

How come Barrow Island are taken out but no other Barrow teams? Guessing if the Cumbrian League happens it will effect these divisions.
