    Or around London? Just curious. I can't figure out how this works here. There doesn't seem to be any relegation / promotion in youth football? Surely I got that wrong?

    It used to be that when a clubs big team got relegated their youth team got relegated too and replaced by one of the promoted sides. Now they're independant though and it's all based on academy rating as to what league they get put in.

    It goes

    PDL League 1 national
    PDL League 2 North/South
    FL Youth Alliance

    and then under that the northern teams play their youth teams in the central league and the south ones in whatever the equivalent is.
