Champions AFC Sudbury may not have been able to finish their season on a perfect note after Saturday’s 1-0 home defeat to Harlow Town but they will go down in the league’s history books.
The 105 points claimed by Jamie Godbold’s side over their 46 games is a record haul for Ryman League Division One North that eclipses Needham Market’s 104 last season.
Gray’s Athletic clocked 103 in 2012/13.
AFC were presented with the league championship on the pitch following Saturday’s final game, which was played out in front of a bumper crowd of 673.
Among them was long-standing Free Press AFC correspondent Pat Arbon, also the club’s hospitality man, who was attending his first game since suffering a stroke.
Preparations are already under way for the club’s first ever season at step three of the non-League pyramid, with an announcement that National League South side Chelmsford City will visit King’s Marsh on Tuesday, July 19, for a pre-season friendly.
Meanwhile, the club’s annual awards dinner takes place on Sunday.
