So yesterday was deadline day for Sutton, Maidstone n Bromley to outline their intentions about meeting the EFL criteria/requirements, should any of them get promoted. Ive just had a quick look on the Sutton Utd club website, coz out of those 3 they probably have the better chance of going up, and mentioned in an end of year/new years message on the site was this comment...

'The possibility of promotion will bring its own challenges for 2018, not least the issue of 3G pitches not currently being allowed in the Football League. But we will cross those bridges if and when we need to and, in the words of Mr Baldrick, we have a plan..'

wonder what their plan is??? Maybe some vehement and continuous campaigning with the EFL between now and the summer to get the EFL to change their stance on 3G pitches..? ground sharing...? Even with the huge target of becoming a member of the football league I very very much doubt any of those 3 clubs will revert back to grass.
