 Lancashire/Cheshire Division Three - Promotion (October 11 2017)

To all Lancashire and Cheshire clubs in SLC3.

Subject: Promotion

9th October 2017

Dear All

Further to our previous notification from your League Secretary  where he advised that the top four clubs in SLC3 North and the top 5 clubs in SLC3 South, after the initial stages of Home and away fixtures, would play off for promotion.

The North Division Organising Committee write to confirm that this will be 8 fixtures only, Home and Away advantage determined by fixture matrix.

The points attained by clubs in the first part of the season will be removed with the 9 clubs trying to gain promotion starting with a ‘clean’ League Table, with the top 2 clubs promoted to SLC2.

The rationale behind this is that clubs in SLC3 South are able to attain a greater number of points by playing a greater number of fixtures than clubs in SLC3 North.

The 9 clubs not playing in the promotion playoff , ie 4 clubs placed 5th - 8th  place in SLC3 North and the 6th - 10th placed clubs in SLC3 South will also play against each other , one fixture only and again the home advantage will be determined by the Fixture matrix and again all clubs starting with a blank League table.

At the completion of this round of fixtures , the top 4 clubs will play a semi final and final for a League plaque to be presented at the Presentation evening in June.

The draw for the semi – final will be made out of a hat with the final being played at a neutral ground TBC.


Yours Sincerely

 Dave Clarke

Secretary RFUNCC
