Taunton Town

History was made in the final day when Jay Foulston’s late winner against Farnborough clinched the Southern Premier South title. For the first time, Taunton Town will play in the National South. Over the last eight years, three consecutive playoff setbacks in the Southern League Division One West have been followed by two promotions in three full campaigns. Last season it took a while for the Peacocks to find their rhythm. A phenomenal run in 2022 was the decisive factor in the end, Taunton Town went on to win 19 of their last 22 games to lift the Southern Premier League trophy.

Manager – Rob Dray

In full completed seasons since joining Taunton Town as a coach, Dray has never finished outside the top four. He became part of the backroom team in the summer of 2016 and two years later was lifting the Southern Division One West title. Shortly after that triumph Dray was promoted to interim manager before being appointed Head of Football, guiding the Peacocks to second in their first ever campaign in the Southern Premier League. Last term he went one better securing promotion to the National South by winning the Southern Premier League South division, an impressive start to his management career.
