There will be two new teams in the Kent League next season after Cray Valley were placed in step 5 by the FA this week.

They will join Canterbury City with both teams expected to have their places rubber-stamped at the league's annual meeting next Thursday.

Cray, who finished third in the Kent County League behind runners-up Canterbury, have been moved up after being one of the 16 founder members of the Kent Invicta League at the start of this month.

But their move comes after Sporting Bengal were allowed to move to the Essex Senior League by the FA's Leagues Committee.

In order to keep both the Kent League at Step 5 and the Kent Invicta League at Step 6 with 16 teams, Cray Valley were moved up and Lewisham Borough, who appealed the decision not to include them in the original make-up, have now been granted a place in the Kent Invicta League.

The Kent League season is due to get under way on August 13 with the first games in the Kent Invicta League taking place on August 20.
