CCL Premier Division

With the CCL season set to start on 5th September, just after the opening FA Cup salvos, the time has come for the prediction season to begin and, of course, we provide our annual speculation on what might happen in both divisions.

This season is the most difficult to acquire clues, for given the current COVID 19 situation but we can now hope for a reasonable level of normality with enough leeway now provided for most clubs to attract spectators. Our Top 4 are in RED

ABBEY RANGERS – Progress at Addlestone Moor will no doubt continue on and off the field and we are certain the will be challenging at the top of the table.

ASCOT UNITED – Must be taken very seriously based on last season's curtailed efforts assuming the squad has been retained at the Racecourse Ground.

BADSHOT LEA – The Baggies will be hoping that a full season at Wrecclesham will enable them to consolidate and there are signs of increased support for the club which can only help their cause.

BANSTEAD ATHLETIC – The A's struggled last season and they will be hoping to improve on that showing. They may need a few new acquisitions to achieve their goals.

CAMBERLEY TOWN – Not had the best of times recently and they will require more consistency, particularly at Krooner Park where they won just 3 league games last season.

CB HOUNSLOW UNITED – Last season's basement boys when the season ended prematurely and a marked improvement in consistency is vital for any improvement.

COBHAM – The Hammers youthful side did well last season and they should improve further for that year spent together at Anvil Lane.

COLLIERS WOOD UNITED – Pre season results might suggest a tough season ahead but playing matches against much higher opposition could help early on. After that, who knows.

EGHAM TOWN – The Sarnies rallied after a poor start last season and a better start this time around could make them outsiders for a title challenge.

FRIMLEY GREEN – The club has worked hard on and off the field in recent years and they are a respected outfit having reached fourth place last season.

GUILDFORD CITY – City's form at The Spectrum must improve if they are to avoid another season toward the bottom of the table.

HANWORTH VILLA – You should never write off The Villains and last season's mediocrity should be improved on even if visits to The Ranch appear rather less intimidating nowadays.

KNAPHILL – The Knappers were not flattered to be in third place when last season came to a halt though it will be interesting to see how recent departures are offset.

MOLESEY – Certain to be up there challenging, the Moles will be a tough nut to crack home or away.

RAYNES PARK VALE – A change of kit may herald a change of luck and the signs are there for an improved campaign this time round.

REDHILL – If The Lobsters can turn a few defeats into draws (they had none last season) or wins, they they should be able to survive without too much fuss.

SHEERWATER – The Sheers started well last season but rather fell away. They may have to accept something similar this season as well.

SOUTHALL – Always a tough opponent it would surprise too many people if they go all the way this time but the competition is as fierce as ever.

SPELTHORNE SPORTS – Strongly fancied to challenge for the title once again (they were 2nd last season), Spelly look a solid outfit on and off the field now.

SUTTON COMMON ROVERS – Although rather disappointing last season, Rovers have gone well in pre season and we expect to see them there or thereabouts all season.

CCL Division One

 With the CCL season set to start on 5th September, just after the opening FA Cup salvos, the time has come for the prediction season to begin and, of course, we provide our annual speculation on what might happen in both divisions.

This season is the most difficult to acquire clues, for given the current COVID 19 situation but we can now hope for a reasonable level of normality with enough leeway now provided for most clubs to attract spectators. Our Top 4 are in RED

AFC HAYES – There were some signs of hope for The Brook last season and they will hope to push on towards a promotion place back to the premier division.

ASH UNITED – Shawfield is a pleasant enclosure to visit but it is no longer the fortress of past years. This could be another tricky season for The Ash Trees.

BAGSHOT – Did quite well last season in mid table and maybe the same awaits though they will be less of an unknown quantity.

BEDFONT & FELTHAM – Pretty consistent last time out but will need some improvement to challenge for promotion.

BRITISH AIRWAYS – Looked like they were falling away when last season ended and will need a good start and an improvement in defence to avoid another hard season.

CHESSINGTON & HOOK UNITED – Improvements to the Chalky Lane pitch will be welcome but will it help or hinder. Season could go either way.

COVE – Things looked a bit healthier down Farnborough way last season and any further improvement would be most welcome.

DORKING WANDERERS RESERVES – More consistent selection and availability would help their cause but, on their day, they are a match for anyone.

EPSOM & EWELL – The move to Fetcham Grove will help the E's no end and their pre season suggests they may be an outside bet for promotion.

EVERSLEY & CALIFORNIA – They were having a torrid time last season but remained dogged and hard to beat. Will need all of that once again this season.

FARNHAM TOWN – The only realistic challengers to Jersey last season but still a fair way behind at the close. Right up there again for sure.

FC DEPORTIVO GALICIA – Thier defensive record must improve if they are to finish higher in the table but on their day, a good side to watch.

FLEET SPURS – Every opportunity to achieve a promotion position this season with a solid defence and high work ethic throughout.

GODALMING TOWN – Any improvement on last season would be most welcome but just 3 league wins last season suggests a long haul ahead.

JERSEY BULLS – So unfortunate not to be promoted last season having achieved that target but few if any will bet against them putting that right this season.

KENSINGTON & EALING BOROUGH – Look to be heading in the right direction and a good start could see them surprise a few people even further.

SANDHURST TOWN – Another of the chasing pack who will be hoping to do enough to reach the top 4 promised land. Definitely a chance for The Fizzers.

TOOTING BEC – A consistent season last time and something similar may see them promoted. Under new management so a good start required for sure.

WALTON & HERSHAM – Lots of rumours re budgets this season at The Hub. A good start should see them in the shake up.

WESTSIDE – The move to Wibbandune could help them improve on last season's debut and they will have been proud of their plus 11 goal difference last season.
