Sir: The promotion and relegation system in the Nationwide Third Division and Football Conference should be changed. It should be three up/three down so more Conference teams can be promoted to the Football League. It would no longer be the end of the world for Third Division clubs as getting back up would be so much more achievable.

The reasons Third Division clubs hate going down to the Conference is they know there are better teams there.

Another suggestion would be to have a play-off system in the Conference which would make things more exciting and boost attendances. These changes would help more Conference clubs to achieve Football League status.
