Bit difficult to organise when clubs are still applying to join :rolleyes:

 

 

The AGM is on the 29th and then divisions and fixtures can be sorted.

...or maybe not, says in today's paper they were refused due to traveling concerns

The Pennine League would have to have a significant change in emphasis if it accepted teams from outside its traditional area, especially that far away.

Whether there is a desire for a league at Tier 4 with a lot of travel in the winter (for want of a better word for it) is debatable. One of the benefits of Tier 4 is that the travel can be minimised. We have lost players in some away games because they couldn't get out of work at 12/12.30 and get to the away game in time. Those games were 80-100 motorway miles away. Unfortunately that is the size of our current region - unless we get more clubs in the Midlands that won't change.

So I've read, I can't understand it, one long journey (We would have had the furthest to travel as well) would be easy to fit in but Tim has hit the nail on the head with tier 4.

Shame on the Pennine league clubs for rejecting Dalton. How narrow minded and only half of the clubs asked to vote even bothered to reply. I wonder if the clubs who voted against Dalton will be entering the National cup?

it's called pennine league for a reason !!!!!!

The Pennines /ˈpɛnaɪnz/ are a range of hills separating North West England from Yorkshire and North East England.

Often described as the "backbone of England",[1][2][3] the Pennine hills form a more or less continuous range stretching northwards from the Peak District in Derbyshire, around the northern and eastern edges of Lancashire and Greater Manchester, through the Yorkshire Dales past the Cumbrian Fells to the Cheviot Hills on the Anglo-Scottish border. North of the Aire Gap, the Pennines' western spur into North Lancashire forms the Bowland Fells, and south of the gap is a spur into east Lancashire, comprising the Rossendale Fells and West Pennine Moors.[4] The Pennines are an important water catchment area with numerous reservoirs in the head streams of the river valleys.

The region is widely considered to be one of the most scenic areas of the United Kingdom.[5] The North Pennines and Nidderdale have been declared Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), as have Bowland and Pendle Hill. Portions of the Pennines are incorporated into the Peak District National Park, the Yorkshire Dales National Park and the Northumberland National Park.[6] Britain's first long-distance footpath, the Pennine Way, runs along most of the Pennine chain and is 429 kilometres (268 mi) long.[7]

The Cheviot Hills, separated by the Tyne Gap and the Whin Sill, along which run the A69 and Hadrian's Wall, are not part of the Pennines but, perhaps because the Pennine Way crosses them, they are often treated as such. Conversely the southern end of the Pennines is commonly said to be in the High Peak of Derbyshire at Edale, the start of the Pennine Way, although hills continue towards the Stoke-on-Trent area in Staffordshire and into southern parts of Cheshire and Derbyshire

The Pennine League rejected Peterlee's application too, that's how they've ended up in the NCL, they were too good for the NE league, but seem a distance away from NCL's standards

 

Cup's a different ball game IMO
