The Reds completed their fixtures two weeks ago with a 7-2 win at home to Saham Toney which cemented their place as Division Two champions.
This means that the club, which was only established in 2005, made it a hat-trick of championship trophies and back-to-back promotions which has resulted in them playing in the top tier of the South Norfolk League next season.
On top of their excellent league form they also managed some outstanding cup runs which saw them take part in three cup finals.

The club would like to thank Drivers Elite, and the Men's Room for their sponsorship and support this season, along with the committee at Thetford Rovers FC for all their help with the pitch hire.
