End of Season - The Final Countdown

With the NOW: Pensions Mens Hockey League in its final weekend we will soon know the teams relegated directly to the South Hockey League and the teams in the Conference Relegation Play Offs, the winner of the three team round robin will stay up while the two other sides will be relegated.

The League will hold Play Offs between the Runner Up in Hampshire Division 1 and Surrey Division 1 and the Runner Up in Kent Division 1 and Sussex Division 1 to decide on the additional promotion to their respective Regional Divisions 2.

The season will then conclude with a Play Off for the final place in Premier Division 2 between the Runner Up of each of the three Regional Divisions 1 and the lowest finishing otherwise non-relegated Premier Division 2 team.
