It’s the news you’ve all been waiting for! The FA have announced their new structure for the Non-League game, and we have the details (as they affect our League) here. As you will be aware, as well as our Step Three Premier Division, from 2018/19 we now have three divisions at Step Four- Bostik North, South and Central- and a collection of new clubs for you to visit. We also, sadly, lose some clubs who have been with us for many years, and we’d like to wish them all the best of luck in their new competitions.

Bostik Premier Division- Step Three

The Premier Division will be made up of 22 clubs. We welcome promoted AFC Hornchurch, Carshalton Athletic, Corinthian-Casuals (promoted as the best losing Step Four Playoff Finalist on a points per game basis), Haringey Borough, Lewes and Potters Bar Town, as well as welcoming back Bognor Regis Town, Whitehawk and- moved across from the Evo-Stik Southern Premier- Bishops Stortford.

Sadly, we also have to say goodbye to a number of old friends. Playoff Finalists Hendon, along with Harrow Borough, Leiston, Lowestoft Town, Metropolitan Police, Needham Market and Staines Town leave us for pastures new.
