2018 Season League Alignments

Cardinals News - 29th January 2018

The BAFA National League have announced the league alignment for the 2018 season and the Cardinals will continue to compete at the UK's third level - the Southern Football Conference 2 East (SFC II East).

With a couple of team changes taking place for next season the alignment confirmation will see the Ipswich side compete against some established names, one team returning to the league set up, and continue rivalries from last season. The Cardinals will take on the East Essex Sabres, Essex Spartans and the London Blitz 'B' who are all very competitive sides and were in the SFC 2 East last season. New to the division will be the Maidstone Pumas who have been re-aligned from SFC 2 South to our division for the 2018 campaign and they take the place of the promoted Wembley Stallions. The Pumas are a long established side and will be one to look out for this season as they put plenty of points on the board during the 2017 season. Returning to the League setup after a long absence are the Norwich Devils who replace the also promoted East Kent Mavericks. The Devils have been awarded a place in the league after completing the required associate games and have reportedly recruited well with some experienced players in their roster they may be a very competitive side for this year's campaign. They also bring the added bonus of renewing the famous Ipswich / Norwich local rivalry!

So the SFC 2 East is looking strong again for 2018 and with the Cardinals recruiting strongly in the off season we are expecting some great match ups for the new season.

Below is the how the SFC 2 East will look:

East Essex Sabres
Essex Spartans
London Blitz B
Maidstone Pumas
Norwich Devils

The league are due to publish the provisional 2018 fixtures in due course, with league's opening weekend planned for Sunday 15th April 2018, and the finalised fixtures will be posted on this website at a future date.
