Obviously not all of the NIHL is like this but the overall quality is poor. Their best ambition for most of them is make the EPL which isn't all that great either. If the leagues were linked EIHL-EPL-NIHL so on we'd have greater ambition and a better setup.
Oh, I thought you were talking about the EPL.
The quality of NIHL division 1 is far better and more professional in the southern conference. I haven't really seen NIHL in the north, but southern officials who have travelled up to Solihull, Coventry and Telford to work a few games have told me this.
