Coincidence & Consistency - Back on Saturday 18th October the top five in the Premier Division were Maidstone United, Margate, Dulwich Hamlet, Hendon and the Metropolitan Police. The same teams currently occupy the current top five. Since then The Stones have lost 3 of 18 games played, The Gate 4/17, Hamlet 4/19, Hendon 3/14 and Met Police 4/18.

37 - AFC Hornchurch have the fifth best defensive record in the Premier Division conceding just 1.19 goals per game but they are still fighting against relegation as they have only scored 26 amounting to 0.84 per game. The only other side with a lower total than them in bottom of the table Bury Town on 25 goals (0.69 gpg) who they face tomorrow at Ram Meadow. 0-0 draw anyone?? 

8 - There is now an eight point gap opened up between Witham Town in 19th and AFC Hornchurch in the first relegation spot (21st). Is it going to be four of the current bottom five who end up going down? 

3 - Enfield Town have the lowest amount of draws with just three of their 34 games ending all square. Witham Town have drawn 12 of their 31 games played. 

8 and 7 - Amazingly Ware (10th in Division One (North)) have only lost eight of their thirty-three games played compared to title challenger's and current second placed Needham Market who have lost seven in thirty-four. The points difference between the two is 26! 

112 - Burnham Ramblers, bottom of the table in Division One (North), have conceded one-hundred and twelve goals in their thirty five games played. They were celebrating last weekend as their 1-2 win at Thamesmead Town was their fist away win of the season. 

Burnham's result last weekend now means every team across the three divisions has at least one win home and away from home. 

Zero - Burgess Hill Town are top of Division One (South) and have the incredible record of being unbeaten in the league in thirty-two games played. Tomorrow they take that run to Walton and Hersham. The Stompond Lane club are currently in 16th place. The only games they have lost this season were in the FA Cup and FA Trophy both times against Vanarama Conference side Dartford & also in The Robert Dyas Ryman League Cup against Margate. The game against The Gate saw a much changed side with only three players remaining in the starting XI from the previous Saturday's league game. 

925 - The top crowd of Division One (South) came on Wednesday 13th August at Guernsey v Whyteleafe. 

473 - The New Year's Day Suffolk Derby between Needham Market and AFC Sudbury is the current top crowd in Division One (North) 

2,856 - Champion Hill was packed out on Non-League Day (Saturday 6th September) when an amazing crowd saw Dulwich Hamlet play Hampton and Richmond. 

28 - The lowest crowd across the three divisions came on Saturday 8th November when just twenty-eight people saw the 3-3 draw between Buurnham Ramblers and Barkingside.
