Sorry if this has already been discussed on here, but I wondered if anyone knows which team is being relegated to the Ryman from the Conference. Southport are too far North and both Nuneaton and Kettering would probably prefer the Dr Martins.

Has anyone heard any rumours?

Apparently Chelmsford are going to move from the Doc Martens to the Ryman League as with Nuneaton and Kettering going into the Doc Martens one club will need to move. I've heard that it's supposed to be Chelmsford but nothing has been confirmed.

I thought one might move over, but I was expecting Crawley, I forgot about Chelmsford. Do they have a ground yet?

That would make a nice derby for you Yellow, but another nasty trip to Essex for us. As you know, we don't have a very good record there.

Supposedly Chelmsford are moving into a new temporary ground at Melbourne Park near Christmas whilst they await the results of the decision for their new ground at Boreham(not Wood!!)

They need to raise about £40,000 for the stands and stuff at Melbourne Park but apparently the lottery people won't give them a grant because it's only a temporary ground. So they have to raise the money themselves!

It looks like another visit to New Lodge next season (twice in one season, that is too much to stomach!)

I agree, the Lodge is a dump. Look up ramshackle in the dictionary and there's a picture of the Lodge in there.

Please not Chelmsford - how dull. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />

No chance of Havant & Waterlooville then??

They wanted to swap with us didn't they, but when we voted, all the boring, home game only old gits, decided to stay in the Ryman so we can play Harrow every year.

Well I prefer Eastbourne Boro, who have won promotion from the Doc Martens Eastern.

Could you imagine EFM causing havoc in the upper class posh restraints of Eastbourne. All those old dears would have heart attacks!

They might not move anyone over, just relegate three instead of four (two if Lewes get second place instead of Bognor). Who knows how their minds work.

Can Lewes not be promoted??

I was looking forward to that next season. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />

I was looking forward to Bognor last year, but it is starting to look like Lewes will come up. I hope they don't just relegate the three as I have dreams of both Boreham Woood and Heybridge going down.

Lewes failed their 'A' grading because they don't have five turnstiles so they won't be coming up (unless their appeal is upheld). How many turnstiles do we have?

Zealster, I think Lewes are behind at the moment but are at home Saturday. Bognor are away. Lewes is a bit boring. They don't have any fans.

Chesham play Hendon on Saturday. Think they may well get 22nd spot.

Hendon play Aldershot on Thursday, so I'm hoping Chesham will beat them on Saturday.

EFM cause havoc in the upper class posh areas of Hertfordshire (well, St. Albans) anyway..

Laz. So much for me starting up the Havant firm then.

I wonder who'll be going down into the Conference? Ah, that'll be Shrewsbury then.
