Local press has reported that Cheshunt will not be a part of the new Div 1 as the ground grading was not done in time. With one other team not making the grade and Romford resigning the latest rumour has it that NINE will be promoted from the third.<p>Another rumour doing the rounds is that the restructure has NOT been ratiedfied by the FA and, due to their restructure, will not happen. So buiness as usual?<p>If true, just as well The E's finnished outside the bottom three!<p>Any comments?

I thought it had been ratified by the FA but that the time it had taken for that to happen was why no restructuring took place from the beginning of this season. I vaguely remember something about that being mentioned last Sept/Oct.<p>I understand Cheshunt are considering appealing against the grading decision. If so, this should make the close season fun for the FA, what with the appeals against League rulings in the Unibond (those will actually muck up the league's new play-offs and could lead to all sorts of fun and games at the beginning of next season whether the appeals are successful or not).

My understanding is the clubs will vote at the Ryman AGM in June on the makeup of the new regional Div 1's (whether it's East/West or North/South) and the content of the remaining Div 2.
Also on the agenda is the decision on whether to support the motion of two regional feeders to the Conference next season or for the structure to stay is it is but with re-aligned boundaries. Should be a busy ol' night!

The new structure of the Ryman league was ratified by the FA, this was a formality as they wanted the Ryman structure similar to the Doc Martins. What the FA did was delay the implementation so that clubs new at the start of the season what the goalposts were ie B grades for div 1 6 up from div 3 1 down from prem etc.<p>The AGM as ROS rightly points out will approve or not the new constitution that is Cheshunt/Hungerford in Div 2 and Casuals and Hertford in Div 1 plus the north south or east west split.<p>I'm not sure that decisions can be made on the FA proposals as I do not think that FA is actually a democracy I presume that the FA will take soundings and then do exactly what it wants. No doubt there will be discusions on the proposals.
