Promotion Summary

Deal Town are the Premier Division Champions following an excellent campaign from Steve King’s team.

We also now now know the 4 teams that will take their place in the Play-Offs but with home advantage crucial Corinthian, Glebe, Faversham Town and Erith Town still have a busy final week of the regular league season ahead of them.

Bearsted,  Snodland Town, Whitstable Town, Lydd Town and Punjab United have all had a good campaign but couldn’t make the top five this time around and now will put a plan in place to make it next time.



RELEGATION

The side finishing at the bottom of the Premier Division table will be relegated to Step 6.

Relegation Summary

Things are looking bleak for Welling Town as they now have to beat Snodland Town and Kennington this week to have any chance of survival.

If they do then Sutton Athletic and Rusthall are the sides that are in danger but a final day draw for either would see them safe.
