- Clubs entering multiple teams into the leagues.
Clubs should not enter multiple teams into the leagues when due to
circumstances they cannot fulfil their fixtures. This of course refers to the clubs
lowest league team, who by no fault of their own, due to players being tied and
no other players to come in cannot subsequently turn out a team.
The reason this is important is of course should you be unlucky enough to play
them early each part of the season they have a chance of fielding their best side.
Then due to the above their opponents are awarded 20 points, potentially each
half or at least gain a better points total and gain an advantage over the rest of

- For a change in League One scoring to PAR 15 or 13.
With the current scoring PAR 11 games have been won and lost easily going to
11 points and the matches can last between 15 –20 minutes. 33 points versus
45 is nearly a third of a match, meaning less court time.
The inter club competition is used as a way of keeping fit and when you don’t
get a work out, it can be more disappointing than the result. An hour or more
drive to Tynemouth, Sunderland or Alnwick for a 20 minute game and a night
away from family does not appeal.
