Jump to navigation Jump to search

The 2018–19 season is the 116th in the history of the Southern League since its establishment in 1894. The league (known as Evo-Stik League Southern, following a sponsorship deal with Evo-Stik) has two Premier divisions (Central and South) at step 3 of the National League System (NLS) and two Division One divisions (Central and South) at step 4 of the NLS.[1]

This is the first season to consist of four divisions in the league, following a shakeup of the Southern, Isthmian, and Northern Premier Leagues divisions by geographical region. The Southern League was chosen to create a new division at Step 3; the 21 clubs remaining from the Premier Division the previous season were split into two new Premier divisions; Central and South. The league constitution was announced in May 2018.[1]

Premier Division Central[edit]

Team changes[edit]

The Premier Division Central at step 3 of the NLS featured ten clubs from the previous season Premier Division and 12 new clubs:

Promoted from the East Division

Promoted from the Northern Premier League Division One South

Relegated from the National League North

Transferred from the Isthmian League Premier Division
