 history
In his first season as manager, Steven King continued to build on the dramatic progress seen at the club since 2000 when the team finished a lowly 7th in the Isthmian 3rd Division.
Successive promotions to Division Two and Division One followed in 2001 and 2002 under the management of Jimmy Quinn and Billy Nixon, and in 2003 the team missed out on a hat-trick of league successes when they were beaten into 3rd place in Division 1 South by just 2 goals.

 Non-League Times
The first twelve clubs in the Football League (1888) were all from either the north midlands or the north-west.
As the Football League became established in the north and midlands, it became clear that some sort of merger with the Southern League was desirable, particularly as the latter's clubs often matched or out-performed their 'League' rivals.
The result was that the Alliance initially consisted of 13 Southern and 7 NPL clubs, and for the first two years the Isthmian (with initial justification) considered itself on a par with the Alliance.
