Yeah the All Golds Premier is probably a similar strength to midlands premier so no point the Warriors travelling


It's not actually going the be called the All Golds Premier now. Think it will just be the West of England League. Few things still to iron out with regards to governance and rules, but the clubs are meeting this week to discuss/thrash it out. Only one stumbling block as far as I can see, but I'm sure we can sort that.

Having thought about it I quite like a bigger division rather than multiple smaller ones, even if the fixture list isn't full H+A. It looks better, particularly if a club can't see the season out.

Even if a couple more join next year (e.g. Leamington and Derby) and nobody steps up to Southern Conference I'd rather have a 12 division than 2x6.

Well, we'd like you there. You could explain the operational rules. I'll ping you an email now.

On the Bristol website says it will be: Bristol Sonics A, Gloucestershire Warriors, Cheltenham Old Patesians, Oxford Cavaliers, Somerset Vikings, Swindon St George

Apparently it's called the All Golds premier.

Only really London and the South East to be confirmed from England now.


Thought some Welsh involvement was expected.

And down the line gives more scope to move towards home and away.... 12 teams playing h+a is 22 fixtures, plus play-offs etc etc - I'd say that was a long term strategic point fulfilled!
