SSMFL League Restructure Amendment (posted Thu 15th Jul 2021)
We advised of the restructuring at Step 5 - see article below - and have since established that following an Appeal by Cockfosters they have been re-instated in the Essex Senior League and have been replaced by Ardley United who have switched from the Hellenic Football League Premier Division, we look forward to welcoming them to the Grass Roots Stadium.
Restructure at Step 5 (posted Mon 17th May 2021)
The Football Association has published the 2021/22 Step 3 to 6 allocations which means that we will be welcoming 7 new teams to Tring but losing 7 friends to other leagues. Some of the "new" teams have been in the SSMFL previously so will be well known to you but are as follows:- Cockfosters and Hadley from the Essex Senior League and Flackwell Heath and Holmer Green from The Hellenic Premier League in addition Milton Keynes Irish and New Salamis are promoted from Division 1 of the Spartan South Midlands and Risborough Rangers from the Hellenic League.
Unfortunately making room for the new teams and departing from the SSMFL we see Biggleswade United, Newport Pagnell, Potton United and Eynesbury Rovers move to the United Counties Premier and Edgware Town, North Greenford and Wembley switch to the Combined Counties Premier.
