Charming chaps at PAOC, I doff my hat!
Yeah there was a name change and now it seems a breakaway, it's all ridiculous.

Any further news?
Downs have unfortunately had to withdraw from the Saturday comp due to lack of numbers.
Have heard there are a few other struggling from all saturday grades to fill both teams.
Any news- tomorrow was the deadline to avoid the fine.

That suggests a 7 team Division 4 at this stage, play each other 3 times for an 18 round season.

from the League as of yesterday

Early in Season 2018 (email: Sent: Tuesday, 10 April 2018), we notified all Clubs in Saturday Division 2 & 3 that it was our aim to return these divisions back to a 10-team structure as soon as possible.

After careful consideration and abiding by the SAASL Competition Rules & Regulations as set out in the League Championship Rules… The Final re-structure will be:

Saturday Division 2 (A & B) – 10 team structure being 10 teams

Saturday Division 3 (A & B) – 10 team structure being 9 teams with a bye

Saturday Division 4 (A & B) – 8 team structure being 7 teams with a bye

Division 2 & 3 must go to a 10-team fixture structure even if it is in a transitional phase.
Whilst some may query the 9 teams with a bye and have concerns regarding the number of games in the season, this decision was made with the best intentions of the overall SAASL Saturday Competition for this season and seasons beyond.
Having this structure will assist with the fixture requirements and the smooth running of the competition as it is difficult to align A, B, C teams fixtures without causing ground and fixturing difficulties as well as stretching club’s resources over different venues etc…

The 8 team / 21 round competition for Division 4 is the best option for this division as all clubs in this division do not have a C team and therefore it means the overall fixtures and ground availability becomes simpler and easier to facilitate.

SAASL do what they want with us for the second year running.
How are small clubs that are trying to grow suppose to function properly when they get messed around. How is that going to encourage players, coaches to come to a club when they have no idea what division they will be in despite finishing well above relegation last year.

Div 3 9 teams :lol: joke
Can anyone see the div 4 teams sustaining the season or will that turn into a debacle like last years div 3 with teams pulling out whenever it’s hard.

Enjoy div 2 peckers (bet ya glad for the goal difference now eh)

Very disappointing that teams who have a history of rule breaking and have had previously been deducted points and played unregistered players still get to be in div 2 after promotion from bottom division last season :lol: :lol: SAASL reward the rule breakers #classic

Oh well onwards and upwards!

So what your saying is Fizi and Murray Bridge have cheated their way there and don’t deserve to be there?

Do feel for you. Makes it hard for small clubs to recruit. Just need to get yourself back there. Good luck.

Should be 3 lots of 12 and the remainder (mainly the 'new' clubs) can play in the one team division. This is getting ridiculous (again!)
