Uphill Castle stay in league's fourth tier
Events further up the pyramid structure have saved Uphill Castle from relegation out of the Globe Sports West of England Premier League.
The Weston village side finished bottom of the Somerset division, only three points away from ninth placed Butleigh and just six from seventh-placed Westlands Sports, after tieing a dramatic last match of the season, at home to Frome.
But Uphill, in their first year back in the WEPL's fourth tier, have been reprieved because of the geographical rebalancing that has taken place in the cross-county competition following the relegation of three teams from the Glos & Wilts division in tier three.
