Proposed change of division for Highworth Town FC

Highworth Town (and local rivals Cirencester Town) have received notification form the Southern League that, subject to confirmation in early June, both have been moved to Central Division 1.
Relegation and promotion into the Southern Division has resulted in both clubs being moved laterally as the 2 most easterly clubs. With clubs coming into the league from Step 5 being located in Devon, Dorset, Gloucestershire and South Wiltshire together with two coming in from Step 4 being located in Dorset and South Wales fate has dealt us and Cirencester Town what appears to be a rough deal.
Our away mileage in the Central division will approach 3,000, an increase of around 400 from last season although only slightly increased from what it would have been in the Southern division next season.
We will however play former Hellenic League rivals in Didcot Town, Kidlington and Thame Utd.
As it stands currently these are the teams we will face next season (with ground postcodes) :

AFC Dunstable (LU6 1BB)
Aylesbury Utd (Groundshare with Chesham Utd) (HP5 1NE)
Barton Rovers (MK45 4SD)
Berkhampstead (HP4 2AL)
Biggleswade FC (MK44 3LW)
Biggleswade Town (SG18 9JT)
Cirencester Town (GL7 1HS)
Didcot Town (OX11 7GA)
FC Romania (Groundshare with Cheshunt) (EN8 8RU)
Hadley (EN5 3LD)
Harlow Town (CM19 5BE)
Hertford Town (SG13 8EZ)
Kempston Rovers (MK42 8SZ)
Kidlington (OX5 1AT)
Thame Utd (OX9 2BH)
Waltham Abbey (EN9 1NX)
Walthamstow (E17 4LL)
Ware (SG12 0UQ)
Welwyn Garden City (AL17 1TA)

Confirmation on the above in early June.
