BETHNAL Green United were celebrating late last week with the news that they have been promoted to the Essex Senior League for next season.

The elevation - a jump of two standards - for the Tower Hamlets club was warmly welcomed by manager Justin Gardner, pictured, who steered the Greens to a league and cup double in the Middlesex Senior League last season.

"I know the standard, as I played for Eton Manor in the Essex Senior three or four seasons ago and while I would want to recruit five or six more players, I don't feel we need any more players. Many of our boys have played at a higher standard than the Middlesex Senior, so they will be able to make the jump without problems," says Gardner.

Gardner plans to have a 25 strong squad for the Essex Senior League, saying that number is similar to the size of squad that won the Middlesex League.

"We need to have cover in every position and for every eventuality.

"We can't wait to get started in the new league.
