Sandhurst Town and Burnham join the Hellenic League – reports

According to the clubs twitter feed, Sandhurst Town will be joining the Uhlsport Hellenic League for season 2016/17 as rumours fly around who will be going where in the great English non-league pyramid system.

You would expect the Fizzers to move into Division 1 East after they finished 11th of 17 in the Combined Counties Division 1 last season but that is yet to be confirmed.

Binfield, Bracknell Town and Ascot United could be enjoying a trip to South Buckinghamshire next season after Burnham were excluded from the FA’s early allocations for step four next season.

Burnham finished second from bottom in Southern League Division 1 South & West and had been hoping for a reprieve but in terms of location they are the club most suited to replace Hellenic Premier Division champions Kidlington.

Bracknell manager Mark Tallentire started last season as manager at The Gore while they ended it with another former Bracknell boss in Dave Tuttle.

Possible relegation will be a return to the Hellenic League for Burnham, they won promotion out of it during the 1998/99 season.

Please note, all of this is currently speculation and should be considered as such until confirmation by the Football Association.
