Well, all of the leagues have finally started. The Isthmian League caught up with the rest and started its competitive season this weekend, meaning that everyone has now started for the new season, and this evening two of our four matches come from this league. First up, though, we’re off to Surrey for Chertsey Town’s first match in Division One Central of the Southern League. Chertsey were promoted after finishing in second place in the Combined Counties League last season, after the champions, Guildford City, were unable to take up their promotion place because of ground issues. Slough Town, meanwhile, missed out in the semi-finals of the play-offs last season and will be hoping to go one better this season.
Our second match is from the Division One South of the Isthmian League. Maidstone United were relegated from the Premier Division of the League last season, and their first match of the new season was at “home” – their current temporary home is at Sittingbourne – against Whitehawk, the Brighton-based club that only missed out on promotion at the end of last season after losing the play-off final in this division against Leatherhead.
The third match is from Division One North of the Isthmian League, and is between Ilford and Enfield Town. Enfield, as regular readers of this site will already aware, will be moving to their new ground next month, whilst Ilford finished last season in third from bottom place in the table, although no-one was relegated from this division at the end of last season because of the relegation of Leyton FC.
Finally, we are off to Scotland for the match between Clydebank and Petershill in the Super League Premier Division.
