ALBION Sports are set for a reprieve, with the FA releasing the proposed leagues for next season.

Albion finished second-bottom of the Northern Counties East League Premier Division, and were set to go down to Division One as a result, but with mid-table Staveley Miners Welfare asking for voluntary relegation due to wanting to prioritise off-field financial plans, they have provisionally been demoted instead alongside Athersley Recreation.

It means Albion are due to remain in the Premier Division alongside the likes of Eccleshill United, who missed out on going up after losing a promotion/relegation play-off a fortnight ago, Thackley and Silsden.

One team from Bradford who are set to be playing in Division One of the NCEL are Campion.

They have just finished a troubled season in the North West Counties League First Division North, with poor results almost seeing them finish in the bottom three, as well as seeing a mass exodus of players leaving due to the geography of the league.

But they are back where they want in be in the NCEL, and having narrowly missed out on promotion on more than one occasion from Division One in recent years, they will be looking for a successful tilt in 2022/23, as they aim to join their fellow Bradford sides in the league above.

Liversedge meanwhile have had their promotion to the Northern Premier League Premier Division provisionally confirmed, alongside title rivals from the season just gone, Marske United.

The pair of them will be joined by Guiseley, who have just been relegated from National League North.

Brighouse Town are to stay in the division Sedge and Marske were in in the season just gone, the NPL East Division.

Steeton and Ilkley Town are due to remain in the NWCFL First Division North, as that league shrinks to 18 teams.

All league allocations are subject to FA ratification and appeals.
