The AUL held a Formation meeting in the second week of July to confirm which teams will play in what division next season.
The powers that be in the AUL revealed the make up of their division structure for the 2018/19 and confirmed which teams will play in which league.
With eight teams departing for the LSL last Summer the AUL were forced into a massive shake up last season. Premier C was scrapped in attempt to retain a strong top two tiers and individual teams were moved around to fill big holes left by the likes of Kilbarrack United and Collinstown.
The departures haven’t been as hurtful this season but six teams have left, five to the LSL and Donnycarney have merged with Killester meaning there was some reshuffling.
The AUL confirmed a 10 team top tier and are hoping for a nine team second division.
So far only eight teams have been confirmed in Premier B and their are rumours circulating that only five of those eight have confirmed they will compete next term, meaning more reshuffling may lie ahead.
There are also rumours that the AUL are trying to ensure the top three teams in Premier A at the end of next season will be promoted to the Intermediate ranks. As to whether than means promotion to the LSL fourth tier or whether the top three Premier A sides are granted Intermediate status remains unclear.
