Last night saw the Ryman league AGM which saw one or two interesting changes made to the league rules. The first sees each side allowed to name five substitutes of which three may be used in a match, bringing league competitions in line with the FA competitions, and those higher in the pyramid. The second change sees all mid-week kick off times set at 7.45pm rather than 7.30pm, although should sides agree that the earlier time is more appropriate then matches can be moved forwards. The AGM also saw next seasons consitution agreed, with the the expected line up in each division for next season, with Leyton Town being newcomers to the league in Division Two. However, AFC Wimbledon failed to gain the 95% support amongst member clubs that was required for the new supporters formed side to join the league for the coming season.
