I thought that NCL 3 fed into NCL 2 , in theory, without any automatic promotion, although, as you say, any new entrants to the professional game, would be more likely to come from the likes of Coventry Bears than those from supposedly higher divisions.
I am also intrigued by admission prices which seem to bear little relationship to the division teams play in as you read through the posts on this thread. The most I have paid is £4 at Underbank Rangers for my first game last season. Coming straight from non-League football, I thought nothing of this, but others at the ground were horrified, and, I suppose, looking at what other clubs charge, they have a point.
Even £4 is still good value, though, I must say!
The £4 there does include a programme, though at Eccles £2 included a programme also. Bramley was £4, with a programme £1.50 extra - I do like the venue there though.
I'm surprised at the cost of Championship rugby league, IIRC it's been £14-17. I've found that, booking in advance, you can get Super League cheaper, those kind of offers don't generally appear in the 2nd level (eg. St Helens is £7 for selected games with Tesco vouchers...). I'm yet to see a game at the 3rd level, but that's quite a gap between the 2nd and the lower levels.
Last new football ground (438) Beck Lane Bay Athletic 2-1 Ovenden West Riding (13/5)
With FC United: 83 - and looking forward to one in Moston in 2014-5 (touchwood)!
On the agenda:
Osters v AIK (19/5)
Hammarby v Landskrona (20/5)
