Two new clubs in the UCL top flight for 2018-19

Boston Town will have the chance to play at one of the most impressive grounds in non-league football next season.

Rugby Town's transfer from the Midland League Premier Division to the United Counties League will be rubber-stamped at the UCL's AGM on Saturday 23 June.

Their Butlin Road stadium is one of the few at this level of the game to have covered stands on all four sides, housing 2,800 spectators.  

Its main 500-seater cantilever stand was opened in 2003 by former England international Darius Vassell and the overall capacity is 6,000.

Butlin Road also boasts air conditioned rooms, showers which were bought from Manchester City's old Maine Road ground and electric turnstiles and dugouts which originally came from Filbert Street.

The UCL Premier Division will also feature Division One champions Pinchbeck United, with Yaxley promoted to the Southern League Division One East and Wisbech to the new Northern Premier League Division One East.
