Southern League Constitution Finalised

As mentioned in the original announcement, the constitution of the Southern Football League Division One Central was subject to change followed by ratification by the league at their Annual General Meeting, which was held on Saturday 20th June.

In the interim period there was still scope for change, and this has proved to be the case, due to the ripple effect of a club being demoted from the South and West Division after losing their appeal against a ground grading demotion. As a result three clubs were moved out of the SL1C (Burnham, Flackwell Heath and Marlow) (although Flackwell Heath have since decided to stay at Step 5 as a result), and three clubs will now join the Diamonds in Division One Central next season – Fleet Town, Petersfield Town and Ware FC (who are moving from the Ryman League into the Southern League). The Final Constitution of the complete league has now been published here.

The full list of clubs allocated places in Southern Football League Division One Central is thus as follows:

  • AFC Rushden & Diamonds
  • Arlesey Town
  • Aylesbury United
  • Aylesbury
  • Barton Rovers
  • Beaconsfield SYCOB
  • Bedford Town
  • Chalfont St Peter
  • Egham Town
  • Fleet Town
  • Godalming Town
  • Hanwell Town
  • Kings Langley
  • Leighton Town
  • North Greenford United

AFC R&D fans who recall the formation of Rushden & Diamonds FC will note that it was in the Southern League Midland Division that the merged club began – although the structure of the league pyramid was somewhat different in those days – see here for details.
