Here are the Points Per Game Tables for the SCEFL Premier and First Divisions.
Could this be the way to solve the season if it is to end early and without resolution?
(Latest Update – 16th March)
Unfortunately an early end to the season would see us miss out on a thrilling title race between the top 5 clubs in the Premier Division but a solution needs to be found and PPG is it. The first 2 places were the main target for the top clubs with the runners-up this campaign also having the chance to join the SCEFL Champions in Step 4. The PPG table hands the title to Corinthian but the good news for the runners-up Beckenham Town is that their average score is also good enough to see them automatically go up. The 4 Step 5 clubs with the best PPG scores across the country would receive that bonus and Becks currently just fit into that scenario. Good news for them but not for Sheppey Utd, Chatham Town and Tunbridge Wells who still had every chance of making it into the top 2 and will now need to look forward to next time when they can give it another go again. This is surely the fairest solution however as Corinthian and Beckenham have been the top sides in the table for most of the year and in the Hoops case would be good consolation for having their Wembley dreams put on hold until the country gets out of this awful situation.
There are no issues to be solved at the bottom of the table as Greenwich Borough fill the only relegation place that was on offer despite them not being around any more and not taking up their place in the Division below for next year.

|19||Erith & Belvedere||28||20||0.71|
The First Division was heading for an exciting climax to the season with 7 teams still battling it out for the 4 promotion places. We will be denied the entertaining finish but here are the results of the table if we use PPG to shape it. Rusthall, Holmesdale, Kennington and Rochester United would go up and to be fair to those sides they have held positions in the top 4 for most of the season but it would be very frustrating for the next 3 teams that would certainly have felt they had a chance to make it had they been able to play on.
The relegation rules state that the bottom 2 teams are liable for relegation. Snodland Town and Kent Football Utd could then go down but with a probable lack of numbers in this Division next season a more fairer option could be to let them fight another day at Step 6 and let them start the next campaign at this level.
|12||Forest Hill Park||26||32||1.23|
|17||Kent Football Utd||26||8||0.30|
