What do the rest of us know that they dont?
The 1001 question.
I have not yet seen Fylde play this year, so can make no comment about that side. However, I have seen both Ealing and Jersey in action this season and would be more than surprised if either heads the table come April 28.

I have to agree with Longtime re the promotion prospects of Ealing and Jersey. Ealing have a good set of backs but their forwards did not look good enough to win it for them when the pitches get wet and muddy.Jersey have lost twice already and although I can see a top six finish for them,I don't think they have the all round strength to top the league.
Fylde have started impressively but conceding so many points in a narrow win at Cinderford shows that they do not have the defensive capabilities to go through a season like Barking last year and remain unbeaten until the penultimate match. They will certainly be in the mix but so will Macclesfield,Tynedale and Cambridge who all have the capability to be in the shake-up for the top spot. I think the champions will have lost at least five games by the end of the season as this league is going to be even more competitive than last year.
As far as relegation goes,I believe that up to ten clubs could still be looking over their shoulder come March time. Anyway if I was any good at predictions I would be top of the table myself.....LOL

Personally too early to call.
No team is unbeatable this season so personally thingkpromotion is wide open and relagation this year will go to the wire with a quite few teams invovled.

most important thing to take into account is the order of fixtures - some have player stronger opposition than others at this point.

Sorry to drag this one up again, especially as, in my opinion, it's impossible to predict, but Wharfedale's battle this year will be minus young centre Joel Gill who broke his ankle in yesterdays game at Stourbridge.
Gilly has had his ankle pinned today in a Harrogate Hospital and I'm sure we all wish him a speedy and successful recovery.
To the river Dale !!

Real shame for the lad. He looked a useful youngster at the Woodlands in September. Best wishes to him for speedy recovery.

Joel ‘Gilly’ Gill would be a big miss for any team as he is a great performer in Nat 1 recent seasons and a proud and reliable Yorkshire man.

I have to say I feel for him and his nearest and dearest but he will be back.

From all in the Red Rose County we wish him well

All the best

ST

Give him one with handles on
