If they withdraw by June 1
Rotherham and Canterbury get to play in National 1. 
And other leagues are adjuste accordingly.

It would be interesting to know what impact that might have on moves from Level 5 to Level 4?

Not sure Canterbury would want to stay in Nat 1 after their experience this season? Leeds and OEs will not declare until after June 1, if they do disappear then Nat 1goes to 14 clubs, 26 league matches and Nat 1 has a rehearsal of what hopefully the structure will be for the following season . If they do stay in business not sure where they will get players from as both clubs only had people there because they were paid to be there and the money is and will be seriously diminished.

If only one then I believe it is Otley as they have the best playing record.
If two sides need to be not relegated, then Ortley and Sutton get speared relegation.
Even though Preston G have a better playing record than Sutton - it cannot be two from one league and none from the other.

At level 5 Carlisle and Newbury are the top two to be spared.
So at level 6 it is Percy Park and Wimbourne
At level 7 Gateshead and North Dorset.

As Marigold says, this only appies if they declare they will withdraw before JJune 1 and Canterbury might not want to go up and could encourage OEs to stay quiet until June.

YC will struggle to exist, OEs may as they ran more than 1 team although they probably wouldn't be competitive in N1

Gavinl40,
Under the current extraordinary circumstances we are all experiencing, the "guys" you are referring to may not have anything better to do.
If this discussion does not entertain you, simply leave the thread. Dont tell anyone what they can or cannot discuss/speculate on. This forum is for us all.

I believe that YC (as Leeds) & OE's will play a part in their respective leagues next season. Why not?

Sid I agree, but some of the rubbish that is written has no fact or substance at all, by people who have no knowledge at all on whats going at Oes its farcical.

All that does is leads to is 1001 texts from people that have heard this or heard that! But hey why let the truth get in the way of a good story!

Lets just hope we all come out the other side of this virus safe and sound and then we will see where everybody is next season, what I will say is there might be some very large slices of humble pie being eaten!

Quite right Gavin140. The truth rarely gets in the way of a good story.

Gavin if you have up to date and accurate information about OE's can i respectfully request that you enlighten us all please. There is a degree of speculation in my previous comments but i am happy to be corrected if more precise information is available.

Marc all I will say at this stage is watch this space, this forum will not hear anything before its announced to the club members, as Im sure you can respect.

Over the next couple of months if everybody stays safe we should have some decent news coming out, which will I hope, put an end to all the massively well informed people once and for all!

Well said Sid James. I recall Gavinl40 coming out with the same quotes on previous threads and coming out with the same "big announcement" pending. But the false promises don't seem to have prevented an exodus of players and a 5 year scholarship partnership with St Mary's University from fading away to nothing.

paddym - yes, it is. I'm hearing the Old E's scholars got told by the University that it's finished. The club didn't even have the common decency to tell them or maybe this is another pending "big announcement"

Bruce, what's the news at Ashford, RFC, what league they're in, how many teams, it's academy programme etc. etc. 
Also are O.E's a particular target of yours or do you have others?

Ok everyone we are just going around in circles here. 

Speculation is fine but we are starting to repeat the same things; lets wait for some news to emerge then we can discuss that.

Thank you.
