Title: Change of Tiers / Leagues next season ?
Post by: Suoerbug on April 17, 2018, 10:51:50 PM
Wondered if anybody  is aware of the rumours about next season and potential new fixtures etc.

I have heard that potentially the tiers are being scrapped in favour of small leagues where the winners and runners up go on to play other winners and runners up . Have heard that it may  be regional grouping but as I say its only rumours that I have heard.

Think tiers would still exist in name but they would not solely compete against each other .

I've heard that the North will be split into 2 divisions. The teams will play each other and then 2 new groups formed for the remainder of the season - one consisting of the top teams from each group, the other with the bottom teams. Hope that makes sense! the tier ranking will effectively be redundant.

I have heard that it will be a North, central and South divide. North consisting of Sheffield and everywhere North of it. Central being fairly obvious to include the  Midlands teams and I think as far as Mk dons and Boston the other way.

South will be the London and South coast clubs.

Not sure if its true but apparently Bristol will be in the Central section.

Surely this makes a mockery of current tiers with games against tier ones such as Birmingham against tier 3's such as Forest.

Girls will undoubtedly now opt for their closest rtc as no obvious advantage to travelling to a tier 1. This is all provided that they change the system.

Looks like a good move to me and might take a bit of arrogance away that some of the tier 1'scurrently have.

Tally Ho

1. update parent code of conduct
2. do not  publish results

Any further news on this?

I see that Boston Utd have had their license terminated, has anyone heard about any of the other tier 3 clubs?

Just out of interest do you know if the Lincolnshire schools u16s were mainly rtc this year ?

I think in the main the girls were from Boston, a couple from Donny and One or two from Leicester. A friend who's daughter plays said they only had 3-4 older ones so most will still be playing this season.

Heard for the u14s upwards each team will play 3 games before the season to determine what tier they’ll go into (3 tiers)

Anybody else hear the same?

Does anybody know how long the current rtc licences last for and when they’ll be reviewed?

Daughter in under 14 Reading, 6 confirmed fixtures by the FA to establish which leagues to put them in seems like it doesn't matter which tier you are in now.....

Does anybody know when rtc’s reapplying for licences would find out if they have or have not been awarded one by?

As they run out this year I’m thinking if any aren’t awarded licences, I’m hoping the date they are notified isn’t after rtc trials

last time the centres were selected before the season end, unlike the wsl/championship expansion although the decisions for that were taken way back in march

Hoping the rtc were at gets one as they’ve been relegated and it’s had abit of an effect so hoping they regain the licence when its decided or if not were told early

RTC's signed up for a 3 year license which terminates at the end of this season, and were issued a Tier 1, 2 or 3 license from the FA based on their financial commitment to providing certain standards and facilities. A couple of clubs reduced their tier rating during their license period to save money, but it was not relegation as such.
I don't think the FA have announced yet what will replace RTC's or if the current scheme will be expanded or continued. License applications ran from December through April last time and final announcement from FA in June (?) for successful applicants.

All the clubs in the new Tier 1 and Tier 2 for women's football part of their applying etc was that they had to have an academy underneath....London Bees never did till this season and they held trials and the seem to be running along the same lines as an RTC with the amount of training and fee! No doubt all will be announced soon but I guess at least we know the teams in tier 1 and 2 will have some kind of academy/RTC for the girls.....
