National Conference League ARL 2019 Can't Post or Reply Privately

It looks as though the NCL is facing its biggest turnover of clubs for several years, which sounds like good news for rugby league hoppers. Ten clubs have expressed an interest in joining the amateur game's flagship competition while up to five existing members could drop out, one of them owing to financial problems. Depending who you believe, Distington (Cumberland League), Hensingham (Cumberland League) and former NCL members Walney Island (North West League) are among the applicants. There's also talk of former NCL founder members Heworth (Yorkshire League) applying to rejoin. The York club boast some of the best facilities in amateur rugby league. League chairman Trevor Hunt is having discussions with the existing members who are struggling to continue at this level.

The NCL will announce who's in and who's out at the end of November.

Add Batley Boys (Yorkshire League) to the list of NCL 2019 applicants...

Quite like to know myself, Jim!

I'll be surprised if Salford City Roosters (Eccles, as was) continue in the NCL next year. They had problems raising a matchday fifteen several times last season. Waterhead, too, have been struggling for a while. Perhaps something to do with rugby league's declining profile in Oldham.

It's been suggested (by somebody with a good source) there have been eight applicants for NCL 2019: Batley Boys, East Hull, Gloucester, Hensingham, Heworth, Nottingham Outlaws, Queensbury and Walney Central. East Hull, Heworth and Walney Central are former members. Gloucester, I presume, are Lionel Hurst's ex-All Golds. It's been reported Distington did apply but were turned down.

It appears Salford City Roosters will be good to continue in 2019. They have a new coach in place and he is busy recruiting players. Heard it suggested two clubs pondering quitting the NCL are from divisions higher than Division Three. Interesting.

Looks as though Ince Rose Bridge, who finished third-bottom of Division One last season, are one of the clubs looking to quit the NCL.
