BLUES SET TO HEAD EAST NEXT SEASON

By Stevie R

Blues are set to be moved into the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League First Division South East for the 2019/20 season.

The FA has announced the allocations for the forthcoming season and Leek will be heading eastwards again after spending one campaign in the Evo-Stik West.

Blues local rivals, Kidsgrove Athletic and Newcastle Town also make the same move, along with Chasetown, Market Drayton Town and Glossop North End.

The rest of the division contains mainly the sides that they last played two seasons ago in the form of Belper Town, Carlton Town, Cleethorpes Town, Frickley Athletic, Lincoln United, Loughborough Dynamo, Sheffield FC, Stamford and Stocksbridge Park Steels.

Newly-promoted sides Ilkeston Town and Worksop Town, champions of the Midland League and Northern Counties East League respectively, are well-supported and likely to be very competitive next season.

Sutton Coldfield Town have also been transferred from the Southern League. Blues, of course have history with the Royals who beat them on the 2015 Play-Off Final.

The remaining side in the division is Wisbech Town which will be a new trip for hardy Blues fans, just a small matter of 128 miles away in Cambridgeshire!

The full line-up is shown below – this is subject to any appeals and will ratified by the NPL at their AGM in June.
