Of specific interest to Shirebrook Town:
Going out of Division One are last season’s champions Handsworth - relegated due to their failure to meet the necessary ground grading requirements - and Glasshoughton Welfare and Worksop Parramore, both promoted to the Premier Division after finishing second and third respectively in Division One.
Coming the other way is Selby Town, relegated from the Premier Division after finishing bottom last season.
And joining Selby in Division One will be four clubs new to the league - Athersley Recreation (from the Sheffield & Hallamshire County Senior League), Cleethorpes Town (from the Lincolnshire League), Clipstone Welfare (from the Central Midlands League) and Knaresborough Town (from the West Yorkshire League).
The League says fixtures will be announced in due course once the Evo-Stik League schedule is released as two NCEL sides groundshare with teams from the higher-ranked competition. Both the Premier Division and Division One will begin on Saturday 4th August.
Shirebrook Town’s 21 away league fixtures next season will on average make a 96 mile round-trip, giving a total of 2016 miles of travel for the club over the whole season.
Town’s shortest journeys will be 14 mile round-trips to both Clipstone Welfare and Teversal, whilst their farthest will be 162 miles trips there-and-back to Cleethorpes Town and Grimsby Borough, both of whom use the same ground facility.
