I see Wymondham Town drop again. That’s 2 administrative relegations/demotions in the last 4 years. Seems a bit odd. Anyone know why they keep dropping down?

No I don't at the moment, I shall investigate, their previous demotion was related to their charter status.

Reading through the AC handbook should a club not regain charter status they may be relegated again at each subsequent AGM. This could be the answer, however I'm not sure yet.

Another question - why have the Anglian Combination not used the seemingly standard 2 year PPG to decide on promotions. I not that Martham have been promoted from Division Two to Division One - and whilst they were doing well last season in third, in the abandoned 19/20 season they were third bottom. Gayton United would have certainly had a better PPG across the two seasons combined??

I'm not sure what system they have used to decide, I've only seen info Tweeted by clubs regarding their emails with the two constitutions they have been sent.

Norwich City, East Anglian non-league
They have become a complete law unto themselves - like many institutions in Norfolk. Doesn't help that the local printed media has decided non-league football at this level doesn't bring in the clicks, so they seldom cover it and hold anyone to question. And Radio Norfolk are simply too matey to ever challenge any strange decisions. Remember a couple of years ago on here why no-one knew why Wymondham Town were demoted from the Premier Division because there was never any official explanation?
Ever since the Caister and Brandon tweets the constitution has been mostly in the public arena, so why not just tell us who is in Division One exactly?

I doubt anything will be issued before the AGM which is usually in the second week of June, I've not seen a date mentioned for this year though.

Word is that it is Holt United who have declined promotion to Division One.

As per the league tables on Full Time

Premier Division

Division One

Division Two


Division Three

Division Four


Division Five North

Division Five South


In Division Three Horsford United will now be Horsford Viking following their merger with FC Viking, I am not aware of what will be their first team home venue. Division Four as mentioned earlier in this thread I'm not sure what's happening with Thorpe St Andrews Reserves but they still currently are listed.

Quite a drop to Central & South Norfolk League Division Five, particularly if there is to be any movement between first team and A team.
I have been reminded that TSA's reserve side operate with no exchange of players with the first team, for reasons I'm not entirely sure of however this would explain the A team acting as a feeder for first team instead. Also I understand that Poringland Wanderers will not be taking their place in division three but will retain the reserves position in division five south.

Longham have dropped out of Division Four but will retain their reserves' place in CSNL Div 2 and are now playing at Scarning.
