  • The votes have been cast for the structure of the League in 2018. Of 44 votes received, 34 wanted to stick with the current structure (Option 1), six clubs wanted the 18 Team Divisional structure for all Divisions (Option 2) and 3 clubs wanted the 18 Team Divisions for Division 3 only (Option 3). One club emailed to say they had decided not to vote. As a result the current structure will continue. You can see how clubs voted here.
