Possibly for the best.

Gary Mac would've fancied a crack at it and - who knows? - maybe catching a few teams unawares in August and getting some early momentum might have led to a respectable 18/19 season in Connie South.
In reality, I doubt it. There will be as many as half-a-dozen clubs shelling £10k per week up there. As a division, it's getting to resemble Connie North: when a team runs out of the tunnel, you look at 'em and half expect South Sydney Rabbitohs to emerge next.
Then, as pointed-out above, there are ground grading issues. They cost money.
I'd expect a few players to be tapped-up over the summer, so a repeat next season may be a little more difficult.
Looks as if it will still be Isthmian football next term, but a switch to the Southern League - likely to be welcomed by many fans, though probably not by the management & players - is still possible.
"Well done!" again on a great season.
