BRIGHTLINGSEA Regent are heading up to the Ryman League - barring an absurd goal swing on the final day of the Thurlow Nunn League season.

James Webster's side are now destined for a top-three finish in the premier division as one of their main rivals - Gorleston - lost 4-2 at Stanway Rovers tonight.

It means that barring a 25-goal swing in Saturday's fixtures, Regent are guaranteed the top-three finish they need to secure promotion to Ryman One North.

The Tendring side finish their season with a home match against Norwich United.
