Who’s won the 2016/17 Berkshire Premier Division?

As most of you who read the old Bracknell Town site back when we ran that, we produced a league table based on matches between Berkshire sides in the Hellenic Premier Division.

We then notionally crown the winners ‘Berkshire Champions’ all the while completely ignoring the exploits of Maidenhead United in the National League South, Slough Town and Windsor as well as all the teams from step 6 (Hellenic League Division 1 East) down.

Last season Thatcham Town took the plaudits as we calculated the table but this time around it’s a triumph for..

 Team Pld Won Drawn Lost GF GA GD PTS Actual Hellenic Premier Position
Bracknell Town 8 7 0 1 25 10 15 21 2
Thatcham Town 8 4 0 4 19 17 2 12 4
Highmoor Ibis 8 3 1 4 11 20 -9 10 14
Binfield 8 3 0 5 10 12 -2 9 8
Ascot United 8 2 1 5 11 17 -6 7 15

The Robins win for the second time after triumphing in our fake tournament back in 2014/15 when they won it despite finishing 9th in real life behind Ascot United, Highmoor-IBIS and Binfield.

There will be one extra side in the division next season with the addition of Woodley United.
