Sheppey & Sheerness United boss Kevin Hake is confident of keeping his squad together after promotion was confirmed.
United ended their haart of Kent County League, Premier Division campaign with a 7-0 win over Erith 147 and a second-place finish.
They will play in the Kent Invicta League next season and Hake hopes the spirit in the camp will help ensure the likes of 37-goal leading scorer Dan Bradshaw remain.
Hake said: “We won’t be letting our guard down and letting people poach our players.
“There is a special bond here at the club and they’ve been here at the start of a journey and we’ve all been in it together.
“It’s open season for all clubs and players will do what they want to do, but we’re a forward-thinking club here and on and off the pitch it is exciting times.
“We’re making history and we’re all proud of what we have achieved. We’ve got players here with Ryman League experience and some who have come from Sunday football. The spirit here is unbreakable and you just can’t buy it.
“There is a massive will to win. We have great facilities here and I would like to think we have plenty to offer.”
