    As a follower of a Ryman League Premier Division side, I view Whitehawk’s promotion with mixed feelings. One the one hand, it’s a chance to see a new ground in a nice area of the country. On the other I am mindful of any club that elevates through the pyramid on the back of large cash injections, particularly where there are questions of long term sustainability. Most of Whitehawk’s attendances have hovered around the 100 mark this season; any ambitions to push on to Conference South would surely need to take these restricting factors into account if planning for the long term.

    Whitehawk FC will be forgotten about in five years time.Their benefactors will get their collars felt at some point and it will all be over.
