Next up is reprieved Redbridge, will they do better than predicted for next season in the Ryman North?

Manager- Dave Ross/Ricky Eaton
Key Player- Jack Avery
Last Seasons Finish- 23rd (Ryman North)

Who are they?
Redbridge F.C. is an EnglishAssociation football club based in the London Borough of Redbridge. Prior to July 2004 the club was known as Ford United F.C. The new name was chosen to help associate the club more within the local area and attract a larger support.

From 2004, Ford United were renamed Redbridge.

Redbridge played the 2005–06 season in the Isthmian League Premier Division, as they were relegated after finishing bottom of Conference South, and played in the Isthmian League Division One North in the 2006–07 season after being relegated once again.

Where do they play?
Redbridge play their home games at the Oakside Stadium, Barkingside, Greater London, IG6 1NB.

Deserved reprieve?
Late changes to the National League System mean that Redbridge F.C. have been handed a reprieve and remain in the Ryman League for the 2015/16 season.

The change comes after Southern League side Clevedon Town
yesterday lost their appeal against relegation due to ground grading issues meaning Ware take their place and we take over the remaining space in the Ryman North.

But this started a debate throughout the whole of Non League football, of who exactly deserves the league position. Did Bowers & Pitsea who finished 2nd in the Essex Senior league deserve the Ryman North spot over Redbridge who finished second bottom of that league...

Key Player?
If they can keep a hold of goalkeeper Jack Avery, Reebridge would have done brilliantly. Every time Aveley played him he seemed to save everything. With 31 shots on goal he only conceded one goal in that match. Although finishing second bottom without him they would've done even worse with his fantastic shot stopping ability.
