HELSTON Athletic were the second-best performing side in the entire English non-league pyramid in the voided 2019/20 season.

The Packet has taken the final league tables of all 48 divisions in the first six steps of the English national league system and put them into one 956-team super table to determine how every club ranks nationally.

With division sizes ranging from 16 to 22 teams, and with many teams having played an unequal number of games before the abrupt end to the season amid the coronavirus outbreak, the table has been sorted on points per game (we all know what that means by now) to give a fair indication of performance.

Steve Massey’s Blues won 25 of their 26 games in the South West Peninsula League Premier West last season, with their sole defeat coming in a 2-1 reverse at home to Liskeard Athletic.

That defeat means they are pipped to top spot by Jersey Bulls, who enjoyed the only 100 per cent record in the country, winning all 27 of their Combined Counties League Division One games in their debut season.

‎Southern Combination Division One side Littlehampton Town complete the top three after the West Sussex club won 20 and drew two of their 22 league games.

The top six positions are filled by step six sides, with Saltash United the second-highest Cornish team in fifth place. The Ashes’ 2.68 points per game ranks them as the best-performing non-league side not at the top of their respective division.

At the other end of the table, East Hull occupy 956th and last place after picking up just one point from their 26 games in the step six Northern Counties East League Division One.

They just pip Hellenic League Division One West side New College Swindon, who also took just one point from their fixtures, by virtue of the Wiltshire side having played six fewer games.

Godolphin Atlantic (Newquay) are the lowest-ranked Cornish side, with their 14 points from 27 SWPL Premier West games placing them in 920th position, 12 places behind league rivals Sticker.

Spartan South Midlands League Division One side New Salamis were the top scorers in English non-league football last season, scoring a whopping 117 goals in 29 games - a goal every 22 minutes of the campaign.

The Ashes were next on the list, with their 107 goals being matched by Hellenic League Division One West leaders Malvern Town.

Helston's 100 goals put them in joint fourth alongside Northern League Division Two side West Allotment Celtic.

New College Swindon picked up the unenviable prize of lowest scorers, managing just nine in 20 games - meaning they scored a goal every three and a bit games

Jersey Bulls enjoyed the best defensive record in non-league football, with the island club conceding just seven times in 27 games last season - an average of one goal every 347 minutes.

East Hull have the worst defensive stats, shipping 132 goals in 26 games, or one every 17 minutes.

How the rest of Cornwall rank

AFC St Austell’s 2.39 points per game puts them in 26th position, with Mousehole just behind them in 40th.

Southern League Premier South leaders Truro City are sat in 75th position, with Bodmin Town the only Cornish team in the top 100.

Making the top 200 are Torpoint Athletic in 122nd, Falmouth Town in 159th and Millbrook in 200th.

Newquay just miss out on the top 250, sitting in 268th place, with 475th-placed Porthleven the only other team from Cornwall to finish inside the top 500.

Camelford (539), Dobwalls (567) and Liskeard Athletic (592) squeeze in above 600, with Wendron United just missing out at 619, while St Blazey come in at 677th.

Launceston and Wadebridge Town come in at 759th and 774th respectively, before Penzance (843), Callington Town (861), St Dennis (868), Sticker (908) and Godolphin Atlantic (920) complete the Cornish entries.
