It has been confirmed that Hemel Hempstead Town will be competing in the South Division of the Conference during the 2014/15 campaign.

It had been unclear as to whether the Tudors would play in the Conference North or South, but the issue has finally been resolved – much to the relief of the club and the fans.

Mike Appleby, leagues and clubs manager of the football services division said: “Further to my recent email, I am writing to confirm that, at a meeting of the FA Leagues Committee held earlier today, Hemel Hempstead Town FC were allocated to Football Conference South (Step 2),following promotion from Step 3, for season 2014/2015.”

This means that the Tudors will take on clubs including Sutton United, Bromley, Ebbsfleet United, Havant & Waterlooville, Bath City, Concord Rangers and Eastbourne Borough during the next campaign.

Meanwhile, the Tudors ended their championship-winning 2012/14 season at the end of year presentation evening.

Ex-Arsenal and England man Brian Talbot and former Luton star Mick Harford were on hand to present the trophies.

The winners for the first team were: Players’ Player - Danny Talbot; Manager’s Player - Kieran Murphy; Manager’s Young Player - Kyle Connolly; Club Record Clean Sheets - Laurie Walker; Supporters’ Player and Club Record Goalscorer - Ben Mackey; Most Improved Player - Ollie Thorne.

Ladies’ awards went to: Players’ Player - Gemma Darvill; Manager’s Player - Suzanne Read; Most Improved Player - Cassey Crowley
