Old Southendian Res. claimed the final promotion spot after in emphatic style. With the title in Manford Way Res.’s hands meant that the final promotion spot would be claimed by White Ensign Res. if Old Southendian failed to pick up all the spoils on offer at Canning Town Res. Goals from Ben Franklin, David Stubbs, David Manley and Andy Cable sealed promotion with a 4-0 away win. Canning Town Res. at least managed to avoid dropping down to Division Five, a fate that Kelvedon Hatch Res. was unable to avoid. They were already relegated before they took on Southend Sports. The 6-2 defeat they suffered means they also finished the season at the foot of the table. At least they scored twice with John Divall and Joe Benson bagging the goals.
