Stonehouse Town will compete in the Hellenic League for the first time in their history.

The Oldends Lane side finished third in the Gloucestershire County League last season under Ian Soule behind champions Lebeq United and runners-up Frampton United.

Stonehouse, now managed by Phil Orsborn and assistant Ian Logan-Giles, will be at step six of the non-league pyramid and face a hotly anticipated Gloucestershire derby against Shortwood United next season.

Stonehouse, who were once in the revered Western League, will  also face the likes of Cheltenham Saracens, Cirencester Town Development and Newent Town in 2019/20.
