Two automatic promotion places will be available to sides in the Evo-Stik League South due to restructuring writes Tom Feaheny.

This means it has doubled for next season as a result of new plans for the re-organisation of Non-League football.

Following their AGM in Southampton on Saturday, the Evo-Stik League South have announced that two clubs will be promoted automatically from the two regional divisions.

This is due to the FA’s decision to introduce a new league at Step three level to add to the Southern Premier, Northern Premier and Isthmian Premier leagues for 2018/19.

As a result of that, 19 clubs will be promoted from Step 4 – at the end of the forthcoming season, as opposed to the usual 12.

That means each of the six regional divisions of Southern, Northern and Isthmian leagues will see two clubs promoted automatically, along with the third-placed team with the best points-per-game ratio across the six divisions.

The other six places will then go to the winners of the play-offs, which will be for clubs who finish between third and sixth, or seventh in the case of the league with the best third-placed team.
