Meanwhile, Chalfont St Peter, who the Yellas secured a 1-0 victory against in March, sit in eighteenth with seven wins, six draws and twenty one losses. Their most recent result a defeat to Virginia Water at home who they lost 1-0 to.
From the Chairman, Simon Negus
In any sport you don’t win promotions on paper or in boardrooms – you earn it by creating a spirit and togetherness that helps you to overcome adversity, you earn it by training hard when no one is watching, and by performing under pressure week in week out. No one can argue the squad hasn’t earned the right to play at Step 4 next season and we as a whole club should be enormously proud of the achievement. To the likes especially of Jamie and club captain Louis Bouwers, who have both been here through “null & void” and PPG fiascos, you have finally got what you deserve… well done everyone!
The players and management team will rightly get the plaudits, but we are also so fortunate to have amazing support…I hope all of our supporters new and old have enjoyed this season and are looking forward to the journey ahead in Step 4.

“This is a very special group. The atmosphere and togetherness within the squad is on another level and this is the reason as to why they have been so successful. I am incredibly proud to represent them as their manager and they deserve all the credit that comes their way. We set out for promotion and we have created history for the club as the side that takes the club into step 4 football for the first time!”Jamie Tompkins, Men’s First Team Manager
From the manager, Jamie Tompkins
I extend my gratitude to my brilliant management team, who have been phenomenal throughout our time at the club. Their experience, commitment, dedication and friendship is of huge value to me and we can finally say, we did it, we finally achieve our target and we can really look forward to the league cup semi-final and FA Vase Final at Wembley.
To our amazing supporters, thank you for following and supporting us across the country this season. Your encouragement and kind words have been so greatly received and I know the players really appreciate seeing you at games. I am so glad we have given you something to proudly shout about.
