It has also been announced that if Salisbury City are expelled from Conference South - that division will run a club short, so there will be no further reprieves from relegation this summer.
Apart from ourselves, the only other club in the division who are in a groundshare are Grays Athletic, who will be playing at Aveley again this coming season. There had been suggestions that East Thurrock United would be playing at Tilbury, but it has been confirmed that they will be remaining at Rookery Hill this coming season.
The league announced that the fixtures will be released no later than 17th July, and they are hoping to release them sooner. As always, we will put the fixtures online at our earliest opportunity.
