AFC Sudbury are deserved Champions of the Ryman Division One (North) for the 2015/16 campaign twelve points ahead of their nearest rivals in Thurrock and Harlow Town who qualify for the play-offs for the second season and third season in a row respectfully. Cray Wanderers and AFC Hornchurch join them in the fight for promotion to the Premier Division for the 2016/17 season. Sixth placed Cheshunt fall just short five points below The Urchins. A sign that the jump between the step four and step three in a big one is that all four of the play-off candidates have been members of the Premier Division in recent times.
With one game left to play we know that both Thurrock and Harlow Town will finish in 2nd or 3rd spot so they will be at home in the play-off semi finals against either Cray Wanderers or AFC Hornchurch who will finish in 4th or 5th position.
We all know form goes out of the window in these one off games but just in case here is a look at the team's figures from the last eight league games played.
In the final games of the season Thurrock make the trip to 12th placed Aveley, Harlow Town go to Champion's AFC Sudbury, Cray host in-form Maldon & Tiptree (10th place - one defeat in last ten games and unbeaten in eight) and AFC Hornchurch go to 13th placed Bury Town. Expect a few changes to the play-off teams in these games as Managers look to rest key players for the big semi-final matches coming up.
Cheshunt's Jason Hallett looks set to win the division's golden boot award on 36 goals followed by George Purcell of AFC Hornchurch on 33 and Alex Read of Harlow Town on 31.
