Next up is Soham, they looked like they would be in playoffs but fell away near the end of the season, what does 2015/16 have for them?

Manager- Steve Fallon
Key Player- David Theobald
Last Seasons Finish- 11th (Ryman North)

Who are they?
The club was established in 1947 by a merger of Soham Town and Soham Rangers.

In 2007–08 they won their first ECL title after defeating Needham Market 4–0 in a title decider on the last day of the season. Following their victory they were promoted to the Midland Division of the Southern League. At the end of the 2010–11 season they were transferred to Division One North of the Isthmian League.

Where do they play?
The merged club played at Town's Julius Martin Lane, as the Rangers ground was taken over for agriculture. The ground had been home to Soham Town since 1921. The record attendance of 3,000 was set on 18 October 1958 for a Cambridgeshire Invitation Cup match against Pegasus.

Who is the Key player?
New signing David Theobald really has the power to be the key player this season. The 36 has the experience from higher level which he can bring the the younger players in the squad. Last season Soham didn't really have that 'leader' role on the pitch, but thanks to the capture of Theobald that is exactly what they now have in abundance this campaign.

Main goal threat?
Soham in the last few weeks have managed to get their main man Luke Stanley signed on at the club. The interest from other clubs was rife with a chance of him going to play at a higher level. But the top scorer from last season decided to stay at the club this season.

Another interesting signing that Soham have made is Dale Archer. He was signed from Kershaw League Club Linton Granta, having scored 22 goals in 23 games. Dale could be just what they want next to Luke Stanley to help both score goals in the Ryman North campaign.
