Premier League welcomes new faces
The Midland Premier League will have a fresh look for the new season, with a total of five new faces making up the 22 members for the 2017-2018 season.
Promoted from Division One of the Midland League are Bromsgrove Sporting, who romped to the title without losing a match, and scored 132 goals in the process.
From the East Midlands Counties League, South Normanton Athletic are the promoted team, who finished runners up to West Bridgford in their League, some eight points behind. They had the meanest defence in the division, with only 46 goals conceded.
Haughmond F.C. were promoted as champions from the West Midlands Regional League.
Rugby Town come down from the Evo Stik South League, where they were replaced by MPL Champions Alvechurch.
Our illustrious neighbours Worcester City complete the list of new teams in the MPL, having elected to drop 3 step levels instead of the one dictated by their eventual relegation from the National League North. We look forward to some memorable matches this coming season.

AFC Wulfrunians, Boldmere St Michaels, Bromsgrove Sporting, Coleshill Town, Coventry Sphinx, Coventry United, Haughmond, Heanor Town, Highgate United, Long Eaton United, Loughborough University, Lye Town, Quorn, Rocester, Rugby Town, Shawbury United, Shepshed Dynamo, South Normanton Athletic, Sporting Khalsa, Stourport Swifts, Westfields, Worcester City.
