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.
