Heartlands Expansion

Recommended Posts

We generally focus on teams from outside the Heartlands when thinking about who might enter League One. However are there any teams from within the Heartlands, in the NCL or below, that might want and be able to give semi-pro RL a go in the next five years or so?

I would say no for several reasons, Eddie.

The costs are prohibitive. 

Amateur RL teams are not set up like semi -pro sides as they often run 12+ more sides than them.

The RL divisional model is nothing like the FA pyramid where the only ambition is move up the tiers and cash in.

Failing League 1 sides will be forced to enter the NCL or fold in the very near future.

Trouble is RL don't wish to have more teams from Heartlands. Bramley tried 3 times to return and were knocked back each time for reasons known only to the RL. One day maybe.....
