They are all new clubs so I have no knowledge of them other than their home venues

 

AFC Southgate - Ground sharing with Hadley

Berkhamsted Raiders - Only details I have is the postcode but believe this is a 3G caged pitch - HP4 3AH

Park View - Ground sharing with London Skolars Rugby Club

Another team in Berko. I hear Raiders have over 70 youth teams, so should have plenty of players coming through the ranks.

 

Will Berko now be looking over their shoulders?

New Bradwell in division 1 lol.

 

A disastrous season and get promoted. Shambles.

Finished 7th!!! Why have Thame not gone up? Teams like Totternhoe and Aston Clinton both had very good seasons but due to facilities cant go up but not having a great season and finishing 7th and you go up! I guess there has to be some movement of teams!

This isn't the first time it has happened. Both Winslow and Risborough received similar promotions.

 

To be fair to New Bradwell, they were relegated after finishing 9th due to ground grading.

They play on a recreational park, great facilities but there was no way of manning attendances etc. Anyone could rock up and watch.

Perhaps extra fencing has now been erected!

If NBSP is a shambles what about Berkhamsted Raiders? Two division promotion on Saturdays after not even getting half way through the Herts. County League development division season!

Your AGM should be fun.  I thought standard Saturday league rule was if you sit out a season or do not complete it you start again 1 or 2 divisions lower.

Winlsow United went down one division from div 1 to 2 because they sat out 2009/10 season as I would expect.

Woodford Town sat out last season but come back at the same level in division 1 in the draft constitution-weird!.

Berkhamsted Raiders take the biscuit. The draft has them to  come up two divisions after their record was expunged in the Herts. County League for not raising teams for half a dozen away league games last season according to HCL official who says they asked to go back in that league higher up but were turned away for next season.

OD -they have not totally disappeared from full time you can still see them in the cups-same story though. Herts. Intermediate cup 12/11/16 tie awarded to Oaklands and development/reserve division cup 29/10/16 tie awarded to Bovingdon Reserves. You would think the SSMFL would know what went on last season and not touch them with a barge pole.

Re Southall (provisional). Is this anything to do with Hayes & Yeading apparently still not having a safety certificate?

'not touch them with a bargepole' --- absolutely !

 

Park View also --- a bunch of Ghanaians who were thrown out of the Middlesex County League a while ago for assaults on referees --- oh great, just what the SSML needs...

For those that don't know there has been a bit in the local press over the last few weeks about Berkhamsted Raiders having the audacity to try and effectively take over the Broadwater Stadium and turn it into a 3G pitch with 24/7 usage.  This on the face of it sounds like it would make the senior side Berkhamsted FC a mere pawn in the whole scheme of things and not running their own side at the ground there that they have done since the early 1900's.

 

I've been a Berkhamsted fan ever since my Dad took me when I was 6 years old and as a family we've lived in the town for as long as I know.  As a club now and previously as Berkhamsted Town we have an extremely proud history with the highlight being when the whole town shut down in 2001 to attend the FA Vase Final under the current new manager Steve Bateman.

 

To now hear they have effectively been promoted 2 divisions despite folding their side last season would make my Dad and Grandad turn in their graves.

 

This season especially as a 60ish year old fan has been one of my best in recent memory and attendances looked the best for many years.  Chairman Steve and other board members greet you by person and Saturday afternoons there are the highlight of my week.
