Thurrock need to  find to  find someone who will purchase their ground and  keep the club going, or find another location for ground sharing.  Also, this will impact Romford who share the facility. I am sure the club members will not give up without  fight.  However , I understand clubs must notify the league before the end of March, if they are struggling to  find a ground,  or are intending to  ground share.  Dulwich Hamlet are in a similar situation, and they have to  make a decision before the cut off date.

An alternative would be for Thurrock to  merge with Grays Athletic or Averley.  All 3 clubs are located within an immediate radius of each other.  Averley have just opened their new Million pound stadium,  and Grays are tenants, but looking at moving back to Grays after discussions with the local council.  Any merger with the either of the two said clubs, would allow the new merged clubs  to  play in the Bostik premier League, Both Averley and Grays are now play in  the north division.

All of the above is a very interesting situation for the Bostik League.  How Thurrock will now perform after the announcement of their ground is for sale, and the Manager will move on at the end of the season will have a direct impact on relegation and promotion.  Thurrock's next two games are away to  Burgess Hill and home to the Terrors. They also have to  play promotion contenders before the end of the season.

On relegation,  the league may simply still relegate one team and promote an extra team from North of South Division by creating a play- off-final for the losers of each of the North/South play-off finals? All of this sheer speculation as I am sure the League is uncertain of the current situation. 

Interesting question..... What would the Terrors do in a similar situation?
