    With the change in NEW FM rules, Singleton offered the stars to our kids, and 3/4 of the team left for down the hill, assuming they're going to get something better.
    We convinced a bunch of locals players and newbies to register for a 14/15's team, and I had to obviously grade them lower as they would probably get smacked in the same division this season.

    Singleton however, came 6th in B's, took the majority of the team that won a title, and then registered them 2 gradings lower! So now they're playing in 15D!
    Obviously just out for the easy wins.
    You know there is a 15's comp in NewFM right? I would guess the D's team you're referring to above is their 2nd 15's team.

    Our main ground with good drainage is struggling, our top ground is a swamp. Nothing is drying out.

    Would anyone be so kind as to post up the teams in each grade, or PM me?

    Stupid playing a team from your own club and ridiculous going up 2 divs without winning anything!
    It is all a bit ****ed, teams do nominate to the associations as to what grade they want to be in and the associations should be looking at how well these players really went the year before. Also comes down to how much influence they have over the associations as well. I've seen teams smash it year after year in the same grade yet still remain in that grade while teams that struggled get pushed up one or two grades despite the club asking to be in the lower grade.

    Despite those boys taken into Singleton potentially being in the NewFM league U15 comp there are certainly some teams just going for the easy win, the associations should look at it properly and bump these teams up even if they are nominating for these lower grades

    it comes in an Excel spreadsheet so it's not really the sort of thing you can cut and past or post on a forum

    Any idea how likely these are to change?

    Seems to be more teams in our grade this year than there normally is - which is a good thing - means more games!

    Yep, got the Sports TG one.

    What did you search? I went to the "Competition" search and put in Interdistrict AA but only found 2016 info.

    I searched in association - start typing in Newcastle, and it should come up with 'Newcastle, Hunter Valley and Macquarie Football Competitions'.

    What would your clubs thoughts be if another club booked your ground through council to train on during the weeknights that you didn't use them?

    I think it's a poor effort and a sneaky way to preserve their own ground whilst wrecking another ground as they are setting up goals and training inside 18 yard boxes etc..
