Rugby Editorial 20th May, 2024 Updated: 29th May, 2024   0

RUGBY Town will play in the Northern Premier League Midlands again next season after the FA released the National League System (NLS) club allocations for steps one to six.

Valley secured their NPL Midlands status on the final day of the 2023/24 campaign with a 3-0 win at Boldmere St.Michaels as Rugby finished ahead of AFC Rushden and Diamonds on goal difference.

Some five clubs won promotion into the league, which will feature 22 clubs next season, with Darlaston Town, Loughborough Students, Racing Club Warwick, Wellingborough Town and Worcester City all making the step up from the tier below.

Long Eaton United drop into the NPL Midlands after suffering relegation last season while AFC Rushden and Diamonds remain in the division through a reprieve despite finishing in the bottom two last term.

And Grantham Town will also play in the NPL Midlands next season after moving laterally from another Step Four league.

The other teams Valley will come up against next season are: Anstey Nomads, Bedworth United, Boldmere St. Michaels, Coleshill Town, Corby Town, Coventry Sphinx, Hinckley LR, Lye Town, Quorn, Shepshed Dynamo, Sporting Khalsa, Sutton Coldfield Town and Walsall Wood.

All leagues are subject to FA Council ratification.
