BROMSGROVE Rugby Club will return to the Midlands Leagues after a season playing in the South West.

Bromsgrove were level-transferred from National Three Midlands to the equivalent league in the South West a year ago despite an appeal against the decision.

Having finished bottom of National Three South West, Bromsgrove will now return to the Midlands as a Midlands One West club for the 2017/18 campaign where they face fellow North Midlands clubs Camp Hill, Dudley Kingswinford, Hereford, Moseley Oak, Stourbridge Lions and Worcester Wanderers.

Meanwhile, the liquidation of Greene King IPA Championship club London Welsh has had a positive knock-on effect for Woodrush who have been spared relegation from Midlands Three West (South). Only Bedworth have now been relegated from that league.

National Three Midlands, which includes Birmingham & Solihull, Bournville, Bridgnorth, Newport and Old Halesonians, has been renamed Midlands Premier for next season.
