West Riding County Amateur League 2018/19 Can't Post or Reply Privately

Thought it worthwhile starting a distinct thread now that the constitution is on full time:
http://fulltime-league.thefa.com/Index.do?league=381234

Only change from the allocations circulated by the FA seems to be that Bradford FC are now Bradford Olympic.

A post from RobGrillo elsewhere advises that AFC Bingley are playing on the riverside pitch adjacent to Bingley Congs cricket club this year and that they are the same setup as the pre-existing Sunday team.

Toller are still listed in the fixtures on Full Time and have played pre season matches since their "demise"

So, are they in the WRCAFL or not ?

According to tonight's Bradford T&A, DRAM Community have now withdrawn from the league leaving just 12 teams. The league has an appraisal review with the FA this Friday.

Not really surprising, they were abysmal when I saw them earlier this season.

The meeting is to discuss their League development plan as a Step 7 league. If they are now down to 12 clubs, it looks likely to remove their Step 7 league status, which would revert them back to a County FA league - if it survives the season!

It's awful to see this league in terminal decline FrownI feel for the clubs that have been loyal to the league in recent years - Golcar & Littletown in particular. They now seem likely to be 'demoted' two divisions at the end of the season into div 2 of the West Yorkshire League (at best). I'd imagine most of the Bradford-based teams might opt for the Yorkshire Amateur League (Toller won't be welcomed).
As for the rest of this season, I hope there are no more withdrawls although one or two teams do look as if they are really struggling...

News from Golcar United...

Club Statement

After various meetings and a lot of discussion we can now confirm that it is now our intention to push as hard as we can and ensure things are in place for us to go for promotion to step 6 in the football pyramid next season.

I’d imagine that they’re likely NWCL1N candidates?

So, reading between the lines and making a rather large assumption here….

Golcar United have seen the writing is on the wall for the league they are currently a member of. The club have obviously had various meetings to review their options and what will happen to them when the league inevitably closes next summer. Rather than be shunted into Division Two of the West Yorkshire League next season (a two level drop), they’ve opted to go for something they probably would not have gone for in any other circumstance….promotion to Step 6.

They appear stuck between a rock and a hard place….
A two level drop – irritating, yes, but not the end of the world but obviously not deserved.
Promotion to Step 6, out of pure desperation not to go in the opposite direction (ie down) – certainly dangerous if done in a rush and they aren’t properly prepared!

But couldn't Golcar applied to the FA to make a lateral move to another Step 7 league (WYAFL), who if the FA approve woudl have to accept them into their premier Division at the expense of a promotion candidate?

They were looking at applying for promotion & that has been accelerated by the probable demise of the WRCAL. Facing a potential 2 division relegation & years of trying to achieve promotion to step 6 has made their minds up. They’ve already had the NWCL out for an initial inspection & they’ve been very helpful. The club still needs to a bit to do & are really positive. Tbh I think they’re doing the right thing. I had a chat with a guy from Shelley, a year or so ago & he said that they struggled to get the better players in from around their area. Because most of the best players lived in & around the big cities in the area & would rather not have to travel too far to play for a team(home games at step 7). Golcar are even more isolated & they’d face the same problems as Shelley, with the added difficulty of a two division drop. I do know that a few of the top WYL clubs, are at different stages of trying to develop their grounds. Or seeking grants to do so. So hopefully we’ll see clubs from that league applying for promotion over the next 5 years.

I don't disagree regarding why they're doing it. However, Shelley FC is in the middle of nowhere whilst Golcar is a reasonably well connected suburb of Huddersfield, with frequent buses (20 minutes). So I think they won't have as much of a problem as Shelley player wise. The West Yorkshire League would also be a travel increase - most County Am teams are in the west part of West Yorkshire, whereas a lot of West Yorkshire League teams historically were in the Leeds area.
The Transpennine train line passes right by Golcar, but unfortunately the station was removed under the Beeching axe, I believe.
