Strong league this. I think that we will see some shocks with the sides who have been promoted, St Neots, Bideford, Gosport and Bedworth will all hold their own.

Ex league players in Bedworth & Gosports sides last season, Ian Roper and Steve Claridge!

The knock-on effect of the Darlington situation - they are essentially a new start up club with the rules stating that reformed clubs can only return at Step 5 (Midland Alliance level) or lower.

Because they dropped out of the Conference system, the knock on reprieves clubs across all the leagues with the best points per game ratio - in this case Hemel.

Five changes, and it always makes the league stronger in a sense as teams coming up usually have reasonable resources.

Big spending Brackley and Oxford leave, while low spenders Evesham, Swindon and Ciren drop down.

Replacing them are probably four teams with a few quid and one with average resource - Kettering well resourced, St Neots are very cash rich, Bedworth fairly well resourced, as are Gosport, Bideford surprisingly not so much.

Of the existing teams, Totton have slashed their budget, but Barwell are meant to be going for it, Bashley might find it tough, Chippenham don't have a lot of cash, Frome, Arlesey and Hitchin (to a lesser extent) may have a bit of second season syndrome.

Steve Claridge: a legend: 25 football clubs. 46 years young and still playing and scoring.

Ummmm... Exactly what it says above Question

I wouldn't go as far as to predict anything yet as we're only at the end of May and a lot can change.
