Southern Leagues set to grow [08/Oct/12]

The Regional League landscape is rarely static for long - although SEAL and SWWU have yet to publish their season calendars, both are undergoing significant line up changes. SUS, NEUAL and BUTTS have all published their match calendars for the 2012/13 season, see the Calendar page.

The smallest of the five UK leagues, SWWU will see Aberystwyth replace the now defunct club at Gloucestershire. Aberystwyth did contest one leg in each of the 2006/07 and 2007/08 seasons, but in both cases this was a result fed in to league standings from BUCS Indoors. It was hoped that a new club at Cardiff might also join the set up, but there has been no response from them to recent enquiries and it is possible the club no longer exists. With Plymouth also keen to take a fuller part this year, SWWU will retain the all vs. all format, but some of the legs are set to be combined and some split venues.

Queen Mary and Portsmouth look set to join SEAL for the first time, with Brunel also back to life. Queen Mary and Brunel both shot in the last SEAL match of last season. These three will bring SEAL up to 11 teams.

NEUAL will have 12 teams this year, but there are question marks over the participation of Northumbria. Hull may yet be slotted in to take their place if Northumbria are no longer active. NEUAL will retain the individual match format for next season after a poll of NEUAL clubs found support evenly split between that format and the split venue all vs. all. The biggest league in the country will seek to avoid the large number of DNSs that dogged it last year.

BUTTS looks set to remain unchanged for the upcoming season, whilst SUS could welcome a few archers from Queen Margaret. If Queen Margaret do appear this would increase the number of Edinburgh-based institutions in that league to four out of eight.

The first league action is currently scheduled for the weekend of Saturday 10th November.
