Following information received today, Ashford now know they will be playing three different clubs in league matches next season although we have met up with all of them in the past.

We knew about Redhill and Chessington & Hook coming into the CCL but the FA have sprung something of a surprise today, switching AFC Hayes from their original destination of the Spartan S. Midlands League into the CCL.  We have met with both Chessington and AFC Hayes quite recently but it will be 23 years since we have played Redhill, the last meeting being in October 1992, when we managed a 3-2 win after extra time in a 2nd Round Qualifying match in the Surrey Senior Cup.

The other new clubs into the CCL next season are Abbey Rangers, promoted from the Surrey Elite League and South Park Reserves, who have switched from the Suburban League, the CCL having voted in favour of bolstering Division One with a maximum of 2 reserve sides, whose 1st Team play at Step 4 or above.  There will only be the one this season though.

Leaving the League are Molesey, promoted to Step 4, along with AFC Croydon Athletic, who have been promoted from Division One but switched into the Southern Counites East League for next season.  The other "departee" is Alton Town who are returning to the Wessex League.

The Board of Directors will determine the final constitution for next season over the next few days.
