We’ve seen the first relegation of the season this weekend after Staines Town lost their place in the Southern Football League Premier South Division.
They suffered a crushing 7-0 defeat to mid-table Hartley Wintney, which became one of their worst defeats of the season, including a 10-3 defeat to Basingstoke Town.

Staines’ record in the league so far has seen them play 33, win 3, draw 0, lose 30, score 35, concede 115 and a total of 9 points.
On the 4th of February, the club released a statement, which read: “Following on from recent media allegations directed at Staines Town FC, the club would like to make it’s position clear.
“The club is currently involved in a legal dispute with a counter party which include but is not limited to potential criminal charges against the other party which have directly affected the football club as a result.
“We believe that we will be fully vindicated in a court of law in due course and our aggressors brought to justice. In the meantime, our legal representatives continue to exhaustively examine a number of documents and practices of historic behaviours over a number of years.
“Staines Town Football Club’s legal representatives will be closely monitoring any falsehoods printed or stated within the media and by any other third parties.
“The club will not be making any further comment.”
Back in May 2018, Staines Town’s new owners were ‘aiming for Football League in 10 years’ according to former chairman Matt Boon.
The supporters have been left worried for the troubled club’s future, with some predicting that they won’t exist for next season – check out what they had to say on that statement from last month along with relegation being confirmed over the weekend on the next page.
