King's Lynn will remain in the Southern League, Premier Division after the FA yesterday announced details of the non league restructure plan for the 2006/07 season.

Following a meeting of the FA leagues committee Lynn continue within the Southern Premier umbrella rather than face the prospect of a transfer to the Northern Premier - a move made by local rivals Grantham Town.

Tommy Taylor's squad will renew acquaintances with fellow play-off contenders Bath City and Chippenham. Old foes Stamford and Corby from Lynn's Eastern Division championship-winning campaign also make a Southern Premier return following promotion.

Relegated Conference South side Maidenhead and Ryman Premier outfit Wealdstone provide new opposition along with Clevedon from the Southern League, Western Division. Hemel Hempstead - relegated from the Southern Premier during Lynn's first season after they clinched the Eastern Division crown - also return.
