A round up of news from across the Bostik League


We've had a few items of news over the last couple of days, and rather than write a dozen separate articles we thought we'd give you a round up from across our three divisions. So here you go, for fans of Ashford United, Met Police, Aveley, Burgess Hill Town, Brentwood Town, Hendon, Enfield Town, Cray Wanderers, Canvey Island, Margate and Brightlingsea Regent!

Within 24 hours of us reporting that Ashford United coach Paul Barnes had left the Nuts and Bolts for the top job at Greenwich Borough, United had brought in his replacement- and as if it was some kind of swap deal, the new man was former Borough boss Gary Alexander! Here's how Ashford United announced the news:

Canvey Island have traded keepers, letting Ashlee Jones leave to join Merstham whilst signing Jack Giddens on loan from Billericay Town. Here's the detail.

Margate FC have announced that their new chairman is Terry Painter- news here.

And finally, Brightlingsea Regent have announced a music festival for Cup Final Saturday, which means that residents of the Essex coast will have yet another way to avoid the Royal Wedding! News here!
