The FA have released the league allocations for the 2021/22 season and for us it features a number of changes to line-up of our Divisions.
Our two Divisions have been allocated 20 teams each with 6 of them being new to us and 4 from our previous set-up leaving for pastures new.
Firstly, congratulations must go to Corinthian, who have been rewarded for their hard work over the past few years with a place at Step 4 in the Isthmian South East Division.
Secondly, we welcome Kennington, Holmesdale and Rusthall into the Premier Division as they were recognised as the outstanding candidates over recent disturbed seasons for their work on and off the field.
To make it an even 20 teams, 3 sides make a lateral switch to the Combined Counties League, those being AFC Croydon Athletic, Balham and Beckenham Town. We wish them all well in the newly-formed CCL South Division.
Six new teams enter our First Division, with 3 coming sideways from the Combined Counties League and 3 making the move up from the Kent County League.
Entering from the Combined Counties First Division are Westside FC, Chessington & Hook United and Tooting Bec.
Stepping up from the Kent County are Staplehurst Monarchs, Faversham Strike Force and Larkfield & New Hythe Wanderers.
More can be read about the new sides to the SCEFL here– we wish them the best of luck in what is sure to be a very exciting First Division season.
