It seems the move back to their home town at their new Gallagher Stadium maybe the catalyst for promotion back to the Ryman Premier. They are currently second in the table with three games in hand over Hamlet who are currently two points ahead. Maidstone's average is close to League Two's Aldershot Town (1,990), Accrington Stanley (1,875), Morecambe (1,976) and Dagenham & Redbridge (1,724).
Maidstone United and Hampton & Richmond Borough are the only teams left representing the Ryman League in The FA Trophy. United have a fantastic trip North in the second round where they travel to Blue Square North side FC Halifax. Hampton & Richmond still have to negotiate their tricky replay at Blue Square South Chelmsford City which was called off last night due to the waterlogged conditions. If The Beavers are lucky enough to get through they will travel to Blue Square Premier side Hereford United.
KEY GAMES COMING UP IN THE FORTHCOMING WEEKS
Saturday 1st December
Bognor Regis Town v Bury Town
Tough trip for Bury Town against The Rocks whom are currently in sixth place
Hampton & Richmond Borough v Margate
A real title/championship six pointer. A home win puts The Beavers one point ahead of Margate for whom a win would put them five points ahead of H&R.
Saturday 8th December
Hampton & Richmond Borough v Bury Town
To stay in contention H&R will want to win at least one of their games versus Margate and Bury Town. Bury will be thinking the same from their trips to Bognor and H&R.
Lewes v Whitehawk
The big South-Coast derby. A short journey of around 9 miles separates The Enclosed Ground in East Brighton and The Dripping Pan. Could Lewes raise their game and spring a surprise on their big-spending neighbours?
Lowestoft Town v Wealdstone
The Trawler Boys have dropped down the table so this will be a must win for them to get back into contention. A repeat of last season's dramatic play-off semi-final which the home side won 2-1 in front of 1,158
Saturday 15th December
Wealdstone v Enfield Town
The big Middlesex derby which will evoke memories of the huge games between Enfield FC and The Stones when both sides were competing in the top division of the non-league game in the 1980s. Hopefully will attract a good crowd where the home side will be strong favourites but the Enfield Town squad will be well up for a competative game.
Whitehawk v Margate
Depending on results this could be 1st v 2nd or even 2nd v 1st. A really important game for both sides.
Saturday 22nd December
Lowestoft Town v Margate
If The Trawlerboys lose at home against Wealdstone this really will be a must win game for them.
