League fixtures will consist of one home and one away - top six clubs then take part in the play-offs. These will be split into two groups with first and second teams in the league choosing the other two clubs to join their group for two home and two away fixtures - the winner of each group then face each other in a two-legged Grand Final home and away to decide the Premier League Championship.

Next six clubs (positions 7-12 in the league) will take part in a separate competition - same format for league play off competition. The two bottom clubs will not take part in any further competitions.

Knock Out Cup: two byes to quarter final (Berwick and Sheffield). Round 1 – Somerset v Ipswich, Edinburgh v Rye House, Plymouth v Glasgow, Workington v Scunthorpe, Newport v Leicester, Newcastle v Redcar.
