Old Elthamians have been promoted to National One for the first time in their history following a 19-14 victory in the National Two play-off against Sale FC.
National 2, the fourth tier of English rugby, is split into two opposing leagues – the northern and southern – with the standard of each exceptionally high. Many of the top clubs could easily compete in National 1. The budgets and crowds are not as large but the spectacle for fans is excellent.
