There will be 17 clubs at level 5 for the 2018/19 season from the Northern Counties (Cumbria, Northumberland, Lancashire, Durham, Cheshire and Yorkshire)

They are as follows:

Alnwick
Billingham
Blaydon
Doncaster Phoenix
Harroagte
Hull
Ilkley
Kendal
Kirby Lonsdale
Lymm
Rossendale
Sandal
Sandbach
Sheffield
Vale of Lune
Wilmslow
Wirral

Before any movement is decided by the RFU there are currently:
12 clubs at level 5 for the 2018/19 season from the Midlands Counties.
13 clubs at level 5 for the 2018/19 season from the South East Counties.
14 clubs at level 5 for the 2018/19 season from the South West Counties.

I predict that Doncaster Phoenix, Sheffield and Sandbach will play in the Midlands Premier and one of the southern based Midlands clubs will move to the South East. This will leave 14 clubs in each of the four regional Premier Leagues.

backrowbandit,


Due to a league reorganisation Hull were relocated into Yorkshire One at the end of season 1999-2000 after finishing 7th in a league of 10. We had two seasons at that level before regaining our former status in division North Two East. Whilst in Yorkshire One we first played Scarborough in a league fixture.  We got as high as National Two North where we had six seasons before dropping back to level 5 again 3 seasons ago.

Thanks for the clarification - I remember us playing them.
Loving all rugby but especially at grassroots level. Lucky to be involved in England's number one ranked level 7 league...Yorkshire One.

Blaydon have plenty of problems, no longer pay any players so have had to rely on their ability to attract good youth locally but they probably aren't the favoured option now as no longer a national league outfit.

They've got Tynedale at level 4 up the valley and Alnwick in Northumberland and now have Billingham in Teeside area where they used to attract a lot of players from. Plus Consett at level below in NE1 who are only a few mile away and I know a few Consett lads who left for Blaydon are now heading back to play in that league instead.

Lovely club Blaydon but I worry how far they will slide before they stop a bit like Darlington?

Nothing like Darlington, Darlington RFC fleeced, raped and stole players from all around them dangling the golden carrot, little did they know it would come back and bite them, short sighted and short lived they stole at least 13 Stockton players and even changed the colour of their shirts to Red so they felt at home! No resemblance to Blaydon.
