Well they told us twice, unnecessarily, in different formats.

So apart from the inevitable WWTC affecting t'North it seems pretty clear.

Honest question, why can't they just run an A league where each team plays each team? Maybe scrap the AW cup and have a proper second team league where young players are getting regular game time.

Huxley - I suspect because the clubs don't want it. The Championship and National Leagues along with the AW Cup are how clubs develop talent and not the A League. The A League is actually quite disruptive as it plays on a Monday evening meaning that travel and training for those players is screwed up that week, hence the high number of 'guest' players - which i suppose poses the question why have it at all.
