It'll be an indicator, but I don't think we'll really have a sense until we're into October.  

It's the first match in a new league coming off the back of an impressive run (along with that winning habit and the attitude that comes with it), combined with never really being sure how the summer has affected other sides (Tring) means I wouldn't read too much into the first match no matter the result. 

Give them a few weeks to get used to the physicality compared to level 6 - Get past Hertford (H), Bedford (A) and Guernsey (H) and we'll know what we're looking at.  

Welcome to L&SE Prem, Rochford.  I wish them well... but not too well! Tongue

Rochford to win this league at a canter.

This.  Two seasons with a 100% record of bonus-point wins, they are clearly very ambitious and (I'm guessing) well backed.


The story behind that backing makes for a good chuckle...

If It's the one I've heard it is, it is rather amusing.

I don't know about the backing but there's a good ethos at Sevenoaks.  A nice feel to the Club.  Their 1s, 2s & 3s all finished either top or 2nd of their league last season (There was a post on their website before their 2s(?) final match of last season saying they would finish 2nd or top. 1s & 3s confirmed top of respective leagues).  If there's a big gap between your 1s and 2s it means nothing, but I do expect them to be competitive this season.  

In terms of Rochford and 2 seasons straight through to level 5... Tunbridge Wells had a similar run before joining L&SE Prem and managed 5th in our first season. 

It doesn't matter what you do in what league - sooner or later you'll find your level.  It would be foolish to take Rochford lightly but I'll be very surprised if they go straight through. 

It does look like it's going to be a competitive league and there are a few from last season (us included) that will have to step it up if they want to stay put beyond this coming season.


Does that mean they do not help any players with jobs or accommodation ? Which of course is payment! 
 

The 2's did win their league making it a clean sweep of 1's, 2' & 3's titles with the 1's winning the London 1 title at its most competitive level ever. A very impressive achievement together with winning numerous age group county titles.
As you say, there must be a wonderful feel good factor going on there right now.
They are amateur as well.
