Haverhill Rovers looking to make step up into Ryman Leagues
Haverhill Rovers have submitted an application for promotion to the Ryman League.
Despite losing to league-leaders Hadleigh 1-0 last weekend, Rovers currently sit in fourth position in the Thurlow Nunn Premier and are in good form to challenge for the title.
The Reds handed in their application on Tuesday. Should it be accepted, and providing that they finish in the top-three come the end of the season, Rovers could see themselves plying their trade in the Ryman North next year.
One advantage Rovers have is that they would only need to finish ahead of the other sides applying for promotion and with this believed to be out of high-flying Hadleigh’s reach, Haverhill’s chances of achieving this are even greater.
Chairman Alistair Shulver described the plans as ‘exciting’ and is already looking at ways to support the move.

“We are looking at clubs like Histon and are open to offers from sponsors who would potentially like naming rights on the stadium.”
Haverhill will have to wait until the deadline in December to find out which other clubs have also applied for promotion alongside them.
