    Peeps There is a defo a few dinosaurs on here. Why cant people embrace change and move on with the times. I admit that it has been pushed through fairly quick but surely the league must be applauded for being pro-active. It sounds to me that people are happy to finish bottom and second bottom year in and year out. By having promotion and relegation in place surely it will give these teams something to play for?. Do we know for definite the other 4 teams or are people being presumptious?. Other leagues will defo have to look at implementing changes or Cricket like the dinosaurs on here will become extinct.
    Changes aren't the issue, the issue is that this as it stands makes it more likely to lower the standard and certainly cost clubs money through lost revenue from less games. Clubs like Clitheroe and Barnoldswick would notice the difference, income against expenditure!!"

Ribblesdale League votes for expansion

First published in Sport Lancashire Telegraph: Photograph of the Author by , Sports reporter

The Ribblesdale League will have a new look for 2013 after clubs last night voted to expand their competition.

With two new clubs voted in and the possibility of more to follow, the league's expansion will lead to a two-tier top flight in 2014.

A special general meeting took place and the ambitious plans to expand were carried.

Euxton were accepted into the league two months ago and the league committee has also accepted the application of Brooksbottom CC from Summerseat.

There may still be other clubs added but the plan at this stage is for each of the 20 clubs to play each other once in 2013 before the league is split into two divisions for 2014.

There will be more on this story in Monday's Lancashire Telegraph
