FA TO CONSIDER INTRODUCTION OF 'B' TEAMS

A new competition for Premier League and Championship clubs to field B teams will be considered by the Football Association this coming Wednesday.

A new competition for Premier League and Championship clubs to field B teams will be considered by the Football Association this coming Wednesday.

According to BBC Sport; It is being proposed that the teams could play in a league sandwiched between League Two and the Conference.

Another option is to merge League Two and the Conference with the B teams to form two regional leagues.

The proposals are part of FA chairman Greg Dyke's commission on the future of the national team.

It is understood that the Premier League and Football League clubs are broadly in favour of the B team concept, which would be predominantly made up of homegrown players, but have reservations about how it might fit into the pyramid and the knock-on effects to other leagues and competitions.

One question is whether current League Two clubs would be relegated into the Conference or the new B team league if they went down. The other difficult issue is how far could B teams be promoted?
