Following on from picking up a top division title, players from Gravesend based Punjab United met with the mayor of Gravesham last week.
On Saturday, the side, first established in 2003, finished top of the Kent County League Premier Division at the first attempt.
The club, led by manager Chipie Sian, has applied to play in the Southern Counties East Football League First Division next season, which would put them four tiers off local rivals Ebbsfleet United in the National League.
To celebrate the club’s success, players travelled to the Civic Centre on Thursday to meet with Gravesham mayor Howard Craske, his deputy David Hurley and Conservative candidate for next month’s general election, Adam Holloway.
Mr Sian said: “We are all still pinching ourselves for what we were able to achieve for a club of our size, competing against much bigger and more established football teams.
“We look forward to welcoming the mayor to one of our games next season.”
