No, the assumption has to be that one more team is promoted than relegated, which leaves one of the divisions short of a team.With the news yesterday regarding promotion/relegation from the National League and also depending on the play-off go ahead -
If 3 go down from the National League - Chorley and Fylde would come into the North, Ebbsfleet into the South and i'm sure someone would have to switch to the South?
If 2 Go down - Chorley and Fylde - then maybe 2 teams would have to switch to the South to fill that up?
If 1 goes down - Chorley - then i'm not sure what would happen, maybe nothing?
Of course this is only what i think, who knows how things will turn out
I am not sure under which circumstances two go down - unless no team agrees to the play-offs in one of the divisions?
So we either have one down (Chorley) and the two champions up, or three down (Chorley, Fylde and Ebbsfleet) and two up from each of North and South.
Both these scenarios leave the North at full complement, but the South short by one. There is no reason for transfer unless the FA Leagues committee decide to fill that gap with a Northern team
If there is a transfer, then Gloucester, who should be returning home are a likely candidate, with Brackley as the other possibility.
