Why are the coaches and bloggers talking about no relegation if T-League goes ahead?

I don't actually know so I'm genuinely asking without an agenda behind the question.

I'd been under the impression that the PL and Div 1 remained the same with the same structure and the same teams except the clubs who are in the T-League would field their reserves in the PL?

And therefore relegation from/promotion to PL was still a factor?

Otherwise all Div 1 clubs are basically frozen out of the system unless they are planning on making the PL one giant league with all the clubs and T-League reserves?

Anyone clarify?


hello. no relegation for first 3 yrs :)

He wasn't talking about the T-League

a club president told me last week that T League clubs won't have ressies, they'll have U21s playing beneath T League against each other.

why are these things still not clearly sorted and/or known?

Dear Krambo
U have either found God or it is time u booked urself into a nursing home old chap. Love the way u preach ur thoughts about other clubs. The messier of SPL.
Keep working with Metro & I wish u and ur club the very best for the remainder of the year.
If u r trying to keep you finger in all the pies for a job next year then I dont think this is the best way. I know u love ur football, but?

Re: anonymous no:4

I believe you are correct.

Certainly no relegation in the T-League for 3 years but I believe the Div 1 and and PL would still be the same hence if
Derwent win this year and Uni come last they will switch places.

U r correct in you thinking but as I understand it FFT have not themselves decided on what is the best way to go. Other than what u r understanding is there r other option being considered as follows;
1. Top 5 Div1 plus 3 Spl clubs who miss T will make 2nd tier & T league reserves play next level down with other Div 1 sides. Would provide good quality 2 level but FFT would be concerned as to quality for T league reserve sides.
2. As u said T league ressies & 3 SPL clubs + Dean May would want his 2 cents worth & have NTC squad there as well. I hope this does not provide Mr May with another excuse to keep the Foley boys & DeSmit for another year.
3. Have scenario 2 plus top 3 Div 1 sides would make a very strong 2nd tier of 12 teams.
If this was the case, there would be no need for relegation.
