Seeing as there's no thread may as well start one for all things in the world of the North Region.

Could anyone sum up how these leagues are operating this season?

Superleague obviously playing 2x for 26 games. First Division playing 4x for 28 games? Second Division playing 3x for 24 games (over 27 dates)? What about promotion is it 2-up-2-down? What about playoffs?

I see League Cup has 1 group of 3, 6 groups of 4, and 1 group of 5 (so that group will take longer to complete) with games dotted around mainly on midweek Jul-Aug-Sep with winners into QFs. Are they any other cups beyond North Cup and North & Tayside (which Nairn didn't enter)?

Superleague is two down if wikipedia is accurate. The lower tiers zero idea about but I suspect it may be something temporary to account for being minus two teams expected to return for next season.

I would have thought 2 divisions would be enough for 31-33 teams.  Top division of 16, 2nd Division of 17.  Maximum 32-game league season should be manageable for most clubs. Below 10 teams, "leagues" start to look more like "groups".

They've never had more than 14 in Superleague; and always 2 small divisions below IIRC - frequently switching between First+Second and First East/First West.

Yes, was aware of that - but now that they've done away with regionalisation, is there any need to keep two small leagues? I can understand having small leagues to cater for a regionalised first division, but travel is apparently not an issue for any of the clubs now.  The Tayside League had never been more than 12 teams, I think, but then they've progressively expanded to the present day 19 teams rather than have two small leagues.

The smaller leagues are to keep it competitive.

I suppose that could be used as an argument, but I don't think merging the 2 bottom divisions would create too many bloodcurdling scores - not many more than the Superleague does anyway.

There's been a few games since the table was last posted.  Is there an updated one?
