2012–13 Southern Football League

The 2012–13 season was the 110th in the history of the Southern League, which is an English football competition featuring semi-professional and amateur clubs from the South West, South Central and Midlands of England and South Wales. From the previous season onwards, the Southern League was known as The Evo-Stik League Southern, following a sponsorship deal with Evo-Stik.

Due to step three leagues increasing their number of clubs from 22 to 24 from the 2013–14 season onwards, only two clubs were relegated from the Premier Division, and only one club was relegated from each of Division One Central and South & West this season.[1]

Premier DivisionEdit

The Premier Division consisted of 22 clubs, including 15 clubs from the previous season and seven new clubs:

Hinckley United and Maidenhead United were originally relegated to this division from the Conference North/South, but were reprieved after the liquidation of Darlington and the resignation of Kettering Town from the Conference National.[2][3] Darlington were relegated to the Northern League, and Kettering applied to join the Southern League, allowing for a further reprieve for Hemel Hempstead Town.[4]

Leamington won the division and were promoted to the Conference North, while play-off winners Gosport Borough were promoted to the Conference South. Hemel Hempstead Town reached play-off final after two relegation reprieves in previous three seasons. Only two clus were to relegate this season due to Premier Division expansion up to 24 clubs for the next season. Bedworth United relegated straight back to eight level, while Kettering Town continued their fall to Division One Central.
