Division alignment announced

The new season is upon us and the first thing to announce is who is in which division.

There were 29 entries this season. Once again there was a surfeit of teams that wanted to enter Division 4 and a paucity of teams that requested to be in Division 1. In an effort to balance the divisions and the number of games that each team will play (as well as ensure that we can fit all of the fixtures in) a total of eight teams have been placed into a higher division than they requested on their entry. As per the league rules these decisions were based upon - "At all times the balance of competition and number of fixtures for each team in the league will be the guiding factors."
