Rules now even stricter as have to have 500 seats by 31 March in 3rd season after promotion to NLN/S irrespective of where you are in table.

So under the current rules it’s possible to have no teams in the play offs!

When we didn't qualify due to lack of seats, sides below us were allowed to qualify. It's ridiculous that one side is allowed to have a bye through to the playoff final.

When we were disqualified from the Play-Offs, only 4 teams took part, 2nd to 5th, now theres obviously 6 teams in the Play-Offs, 2nd to 7th

There are 3 rounds under the current rules, Qualifying Round, Semi Final and Final, whoever Concord would have played will get a bye into the Semi-Final

I think the next team down the table should be allowed to take their place and chance in the play-offs.

I can see why they have done it. The season we were denied a place there were 3 teams in the NLS in the same position if memory serves. It would make a mockery of the whole thing if you had mid table sides contesting the play offs.

I reckon they have taken action against concord due to the north ferriby farce. Somehow they were allowed in the conference with a ground below standard yet had no intention of upgrading it
I may not live in the north east anymore but i still support the north east teams
