There are currently 46 teams playing in the 4 divisions: 11 teams in divisions 1 & 4, 12 teams in divisions 2 & 3.
Assuming we remain with 46 teams next season, divisions 1 & 2 will have 12 teams, whilst divisions 3 & 4 will have 11 teams. Therefore, two teams will be relegated from divisions 1, 2 & 3, whilst three will be promoted from divisions 2 & 3. Only two teams will be promoted from division 4, with no relegation possible.
Should either one or two teams join the league next season, three teams will be promoted from division four, meaning the top 3 divisions will have 12 teams each and division 4 will have 11 or 12 teams. This will have no effect on relegation, in any division.
This is for your guidance only and is subject to change, should any other scenario occur.
Bank of China, Antonihll, Azzurri and Wanderers are clear at the top of their respective divisions and remain the only unbeaten teams in the league following 3-0, 3-0, 5-0 and 3-0 wins over Green Cypress, Macabbi, CSOB and Colloids respectively, Albion joined their fellow Sports Roaders in the top three after bringing Colts’ unbeaten record to an end with a 3-1 victory, Spartans are fourth after sharing the points and two goals with Squadron, French Kiss put some daylight between themselves and the relegation places after slaying Dragons 2-1 as did Swiss who made it two consecutive wins after winning 3-0 against Knights.
Dynamo broke Hearts 3-2 to move them into second spot in the second tier, WYFC06’s 2-1 win over HKU70s left the teams in fourth and third positions respectively, GGFC hit White Youth for six, Boca were in seventh heaven at the expense of IES and ANP notched their first three pointer of the campaign after a 3-0 win over Grasshoppers leaves it mighty tight at the lower end of div 2.
Yan Po stay third in division three after scoring the only goal in their game with HOB, University stayed within reach following their 4-2 win over Darts, Power 22 and HKSS played out the days only scoreless stalemate, Goal Visio edged OBA by the odd goal in five and FOB moved out of the relegation places after a stinging 7-2 win over Scorpions.

The Exco XI maintained their 100% record on Friday night after a scoreline that clearly flattered the ‘Co. Starting with 10 men Exco were under pressure almost immediately and Gazzelles dominated the first half and must have wondered why the scoreboard only showed 1-1 after having a plethora chances which were thwarted by a combination of excellent goalkeeping from Barney and some resolute defending by the aging, yet sturdy, back four. But 1-1 it was and with the boys in white sticking resolutely to possession football and a couple of the late arrival giving some much need mobility, holes started to appear in the Gazzelles defense and with John Fawcett adding a second half brace, one a header, to his goal in the first half to come away with the first Exco hat-trick in many a year and Granddad Zavagno finishing with aplomb late in the game 4-1 was to be the final score. Big thanks to the Gazzelles for hosting us and ensuring they played a big part in a free flowing and clean game.
