The FA WSL 2016 Rules

Considering that the FA WSL  2016 season has now started, the FA has not published the FA WSL rules and probably will not put them on their website. I am pleased to be able to share them with all the fans that would like to have a look at them.

There is nothing more frustrating for a fan not be able to know what is happening and what the regulations are for a competition you are following.

When you consider that every FIFA/UEFA tournaments rules and regulations are available and easy to find, you wonder why the FA does not do the same for the FA WSL ?

There are certainly some very questionable points  in those rules that I have already mentioned in previous blogs. So I hope you will all enjoy reading them.

FA WSL Rules 2016 Season

The FA WPL promotion race to FA WSL 2 Ep 11

The title race is still very much open in the Northern Division due to the huge backlog of games, while Brighton have nearly sealed it in the Southern.

 

Northern Division

SC Albion 3 Derby County 0

Nottingham Forest 2 PNE 2

Guiseley Vixens 0 SC Albion 2

Bradford 2 Huddersfield 0

 

PNE dropping big points and likely to get overtaken once teams will catch up all their games on hand. SC Albion and Bradford catching up. The chasing pack still has a lot of game to play before the end of the season.

  1. Preston 43 pts pl 20 +49 (maximum points 51)
  2. Stoke 35 pts pl 15 +30 ( mp 56)
  3. Blackburn 32 pts pl 15 +19 (mp 53)
  4. Forest 30 pts pl 14 +16 ( mp 56)
  5. Bradford 30 pts pl 15 +15 ( mp  51)
  6. Derby 
  7. SC Albion 27 pts pl 12 +15 ( mp 57)

 

 

Southern Division

C&K Basildon 1 Brighton 6

Forest Green 0 Portsmouth 3

 

Brighton are nearly there now, they just need to win their remaining two games.  The play-off game is getting closer for the Seagulls. They have Portsmouth away and Spurs away to win. Should they slip-up once,  the four chasing teams will be back in business.
