On the other side of the scale, Eleven Attackers were relegated from the regional league and are now back in the LFA Premier League. While they received soft points in their first fixture, due to Shining Stars not arriving for the match, Eleven Attackers had to settle for a 1-1 draw against Jacaranda Aces during the second round fixtures.
