BLUE Square South clubs have been given a boost with the news that they can loan more players next season.

Under last season's rules clubs were only permitted to borrow eight players a season but this was changed to twelve at last weekend's Conference AGM.

Club secretary Steve Eames believes this is a good move and will benefit all the clubs in the division.

"I think it's a change that will work in this league. Jack Pearce (Bognor Regis General Manager) has been fighting the FA for this for the past year and I think this is his parting gift to us," said Eames.

Pearce has been forced to step down as the division's representative on the Conference Board following Bognor's relegation and his place has been taken by Dave Boddy of Worcester City who beat Dave Martin of Dorchester by 12 votes to 10.

The Conference also confirmed the makeup of the league with the 22 clubs listed below set to contest the division.

Basingstoke Town

Bath City

Bishop's Stortford

Braintree Town
