National League South outright title winner odds revealed for 2023/24

The National League South outright title winner odds have been revealed for the 2023/24 season now that fixtures are out.

Preparations for the division’s 24 teams are now in full swing with pre-season friendlies getting underway, new shirts being revealed and new signings being brought in.

The 2023–24 National League season, known as the Vanarama National League for sponsorship reasons, will be the ninth season under English football’s new title of the National League, the 21st season consisting of three divisions, and the 45th season overall.

Last season saw the expansion of North and South divisions to 24 teams apiece, a planned increase which was originally scheduled in 2019. However, after the curtailment and voidance of the 2020–21 season for both North and South, promotion and relegation were postponed. For those reasons, the implementation of expansion plans was delayed until 2022–23.

Torquay United manager Gary Johnson stays on despite relegation, he spoke during pre-season, saying, as per Devon Live:

“It is the first time in a long time been we have able to keep the bulk of the squad together and they know that. It is good to see them great each other but also that they were looking forward to coming back this season – maybe not the running they will be doing – so they might be nervous if they have done enough over the summer.

“As a pre-season, you take them to the limits but not beyond. The short-sharp ones like 1500m, not an easy distance, as they have a time to get in on, and if they don’t do it, they are doing it again until they get in. They are a competitive group and they will all come in the time – even Downsey did it!

“They all look fit. I know when someone had too much pud or sangria, and they know it, so to the eye, they look fit. Once you get the fitness out of the way, they already know our language so you don’t have to explain it to everyone again, and the new ones will pick it up quickly.

“It is great they all signed but it put the budget a bit over as didn’t expect everyone to come back. But we are pleased to say they are back, and the aim is only one thing and that is to get promoted.”
