Sheers Groundshare At Woking Given Green Light

Sheerwater FC will be members of the Cherry Red Records Combined Counties League again next season, after signing up to a two-season groundshare with Vanarama National League outfit Woking.

The future of The Sheers had been in some doubt, but they will now be able to look to the future and plan ahead for the 2018/19 season, which may well include forays into the Buildbase FA Vase and Emirates FA Cup for the first time.

The Sheers are due to move into their new home at Bishop David Brown School in 2020, once the redevelopment of the Sheerwater has been completed.

However, the Combined Counties League will be bidding farewell to Division One table-toppers Worcester Park, Farleigh Rovers and Staines Lammas as their grounds will no longer be suitable for Step 6 football.

British Airways FC and Tooting & Mitcham Wanderers are likely to be members of the Combined Counties League next season, and the league may be welcoming old boys Sandhurst Town back into the fold as well once Step 6 leagues for 2018/19 are decided in the summer.

Virginia Water might be making a sideways move to the Combined Counties League as well, thus allowing Carterton Town to take promotion to Division One of the Uhlsport Hellenic League next season and also to allow both the Hellenic and Combined Counties to run with twenty teams at Step 6.
