Liversedge facing Albion derby

THERE is the prospect of Liversedge facing neighbours Ossett Albion after the Northern Counties East Football League published its proposed constitution for next season.

Teams leaving the league are Premier Division champions Farsley AFC, who have been promoted into the EvoStik League, while Division One Leeds Carnegie tendered their resignation towards the end of the last campaign.

It is proposed that four teams are brought into the NCEL with two coming from the EvoStik League, Retford United and Ossett Albion, joining the Premier Division.

Central Midlands League champions, Sheffield Parramore, would be promoted into the NCEL and become a Division One side called Worksop Parramore, due to their move to Sandy Lane.

Albion Sports would also join from the West Riding County Amateur League meaning each division would consist of 21 teams.

Clubs will vote on the proposal at the league’s annual meeting on Saturday, June 18 and the new season will begin on Saturday, August 6.

Proposed Premier Division: Armthorpe Welfare, Arnold Town, Barton Town Old Boys, Bridlington Town, Brighouse Town, Hall Road Rangers, Lincoln Moorlands Railway, Liversedge, Long Eaton United, Maltby Main, Nostell Miners Welfare, Ossett Albion, Parkgate, Pickering Town, Retford United, Scarborough Athletic, Selby Town, Staveley Miners Welfare, Tadcaster Albion, Thackley, Winterton Rangers.
