Balham and Tower Hamlets make the switch to the Southern Counties East Football League Premier Division

Tuesday 21st July 2020

There will be two new sides in the Southern Counties East Football League Premier Division in the 2020-21 season.

 

Balham and Tower Hamlets have switched from the Combined Counties League and Essex Senior League respectively.

The two clubs have secured groundshare deals at AFC Croydon Athletic and Phoenix Sports and have made the lateral move over to the more Kent-based division.

Beckenham Town, who were leading the Premier Division at the time of the coronavirus health pandemic in March, have not been promoted into the Isthmian League.

The Southern Counties East Football League First Division will retain the same 17 clubs as last season.
