Football Alliance 2017 - 18: Third Division Clubs and Colours


The expanded Third Division for the new season will feature three clubs from the Scottish Championship - Arbroath, Partick Thistle and Stenhousemuir - and Welsh champions SG Caernarfon in addition to Merthyr Tydfil and Wimbledon Tooting & Mitcham, relegated from the Second Division, eight members of the previous third tier and newcomers Locomotive York and Oxford Albania, replacing the bottom two Liverpool Hibernian and Tadcaster Albion who have returned to the regional leagues rather than take up places in the new Fourth Division. Of the existing Third Division clubs, Urmston Villa have reverted to an Italian nomenclature and will be known as Inter-Stella Rossa, the Anglo-Scots Newcastle Caledonia Thistle have ceased to be as such and reborn under the historical name of Newcastle United, the original incarnation of which were twice Football Alliance champions in the early years of this millenium, and Sunderland Automotive have dropped that suffix and will be known as their pre-merger and reconstitution 'Red Star' once more.
