1951-52 Football Combination (Section B)

The Football Combination is on similar lines to last season, but there is a greater incentive to all clubs. Although the 32 clubs will be split into A and B Sections as before, the top eight clubs will form into Division One next season whilst the bottom eight of each Section will become Division Two. This willl bring a graded competition into being in 1952-53, with promotion and relegation on the basis of four up and four dowm.
