King’s Lynn Town have been transferred back to the Southern League Premier Division after an eight-year absence.

The shock, but welcome, move sees them return to the league which they left at the end of the 2007/08 season when they won promotion to the Conference North.

Lynn will renew rivalries with the likes of Cambridge City, Histon, Kettering and St Neots, although travelling-wise they will still have to clock up some 6,614 miles on the road next season.

The full league line-up (subject to any appeals) for next season will be: Bedworth United, Bideford, Biggleswade Town, Cambridge City (playing at St Ives), Chesham United, Chippenham Town, Cirencester Town, Dorchester Town, Dunstable Town, Frome Town, Histon, Hitchin Town, Hungerford Town, Kettering Town, Lynn Town, Leamington, Merthyr Town, Paulton Rovers, Poole Town, Redditch United, St Neots, Slough Town, Stratford Town and Weymouth.
