A guide to Promotion and Relegation – Season 2021-22

With the conferences being broken down into linear leagues from next season onward, and the Premier Division trimming down in line with this from 20 to 16 teams we have put together a guide to show what positions will mean what come the final day of the season. We look at each option below –

EIGHT RELEGATED FROM PREMIER DIVISION

We start with the scenario where our Premier Division champions fail to be promoted to the Lowland League and the team finishing bottom of the Lowland League falls into the WoSFL –

 

  • 8 Clubs relegated from Premier to 1st Division
  • 2/3rd place from Conferences A, B & C go into 1st Division
  • two best 4th placed clubs from A B or C go into 1st Division
  • 3rd best 4th placed club and clubs finishing 5-9th go into 2nd Division
  • Remaining clubs go into 3rd Division

——————————————————————-

SEVEN RELEGATED FROM PREMIER DIVISION

The next scenario see’s the WoSFL Premier Champions promoted to the Lowland League and a the bottom placed Lowland League club being relegated to the WoSFL OR The WoSFL Premier Champions not gaining promotion to the Lowland League and No Club relegated to the WoSFL from the Lowland League

 

  • Seven Clubs relegated from the Premier Division to the 1st Division
  • 2nd, 3rd and 4th placed in Conferences A, B & C go into 1st Division
  • 5th to 9th in Conferences A, B & C go into 2nd Division
  • Best 10th placed club from A, B or C goes into 2nd Division
  • Remainder go into 3rd Division

—————————————————————–

SIX RELEGATED FROM PREMIER DIVISION

The last scenario sees our WoSFL Premier Division club promoted to the Lowland League but no club relegated to WoSFL from Lowland League

 

  • Six Clubs relegated from Premier Division to the 1st Division
  • 2nd, 3rd and 4th placed in Conferences A, B & C go into 1st Division
  • Best placed 5th club from either A, B or C goes into 1st Division
  • Remaining two 5th placed clubs go into 2nd Division
  • 6th – 9th in Conferences A, B & C go into 2nd Division
  • 2 best 10th placed clubs make up 2nd division
  • Remainder of clubs go into 3rd Division
