An article has appeared on the non-league paper site that may be of interest. Saying that, this lot had false information on a thread I started involving a transfer request by Wayne Vaughan. Apologies to Wayne for starting that thread but I thought this site was credible, therefore publishing correct material, obviously not!<p>This article says:<p>A number of non-League clubs have been given added purpose to their quests for promotion this season with the news that the Football League are looking at the re-introduction of two Third Divisions. <p>The new proposal, which advocates a Third Divison North and Third Division South for the first time since 1958, would have a significant knock-on effect for the restructuring plans for non-League football. <p>If the League wins the day, it would see many of the current Conference sides absorbed into the professional ranks with a subsequent updraught of the bigger non-League clubs in their wake. <p>The League re-think could force the FA&#8217;s National League systems manager Greg Fee, currently proposing changes to the Pyramid, to hold.

And this comes just as the Isthmian (Ryman) League has agreed to reduce the number of Division Threes from one to nought.

i am a big fan of regionalised footy at div 3 level
premiership
div 1
div 2
div 3 north n sarf
2 feeders into each with 3 up n 3 down
top 2 clubs for each feeder and a play off
from the 2nd n 3rd places in each feeder league

in my opinion a lot more promotion and relegation will liven things up generate interest and crowds and therefore revenue..most div 3 clubs are buggered financially .... local derbies also add at least 50 to 100 per cent to any gate.. i really cant see why they are fecking around on this they have a great oppertunity to sort things for the next 10 years

I agree entirely. The idea of one up one down into the national league is absurd. The idea of clubs in Division 3 having travel the length of the country for midweek matches is ridiculous. I've been a follower of the 'regionalisation' idea for years. It gives the teams more to play for, and therefore should attract more people to the games.

It would also bring bigger crowds in as there would be so many local derby's
