Marshfield have just tweeted and confirmed that they have folded from the Gwent County League and I notice their record for 18/19 is also removed from the table etc, presumably for the game they didn't fulfil in April.

Staffs County league side (and former WMRL members) Red Star Alma were talking of folding a few weeks ago, after their backer pulled out and they had no ground to play on.

It now seems the are to keep going as Bloxwich United, but no details as yet of what league they will play in, or where.

Yep, they played on Elizabeth Park in Thurmaston but couldn't be promoted so owner shut them down (same idiot that was at Anstey and Asfordby and Hinckley FC.)

There was. They played @ Elizabeth Park on Checklands Road.
Scraptoft / Thurmaston are and have been very active on twitter since forming last year. They did try to get the use of Elizabeth Park, but could not get use of the pavilion as it is in constant use.

I missed going to Elizabeth Park when Thurmaston were in premier division so disappointing they are not playing there. Are any adult Saturday teams using Elizabeth Park & if so who & in what league.

In the Central Midlands league, perennial strugglers Cromford have merged with local rivals Wirksworth Town to become....wait for it....Cromford and Wirksworth Town.

The new club will be based at Cromford’s old Ground at Cromford Meadows.

I'd have thought it would make more sense for the two Wirksworth clubs to merge. They're in the same division, from the same town.

But no Town have merged with...Cromford?

Change of name and league -
Morpeth Mighty Oaks have renamed themselves Ashington Oaks and are moving from the North Eastern Christian Fellowship League to the North East Combination League (the replacement league of the Newcastle Corinthians League).
Presumably they’re moving from Morpeth to Ashington too.

So in the event of the merger being off, who would take up the place in the SWPL? Cronies or Topsham.

From what I have read the merger was of mutual benefit. Cronies had the team, but not the ground, Topsham had the ground, but not the team.

As promotions into the new SWPL setup seemingly don't take into account that you're actually rubbish at playing football (I.e. Watcombe Wanderers at present) and is entirely bsed on the ground you play at, I'd assume Topsham Town will take it, alone?

Neither will be in the SWPL as we are now only running Step 6.

The new Devon League had previously had applications from both Cronies and Topsham Town prior to the talk of a merger, will find out if both wish still to proceed at the Devon League meeting on Tuesday.

Was there really any need for the comment (and error that its "the new SWP set up") about being "actually rubbish at playing football" ?

Thought this forum was better than that.

Apologies for getting the SWPL and the new Devon setup mixed up.

But I'd say my other comment that you've take offence to was a fair comment. I'm not the one that's just created two new unnecessary divisions at Step 7 for Devon and has had to drag some of the dregs from Devon's feeder league's to fill it.

Relatively speaking as a Step 8 Premier Division side last season, Watcombe weren't very good at playing football!

Confirmed that Topsham Town & Cronies merger is NOT happening.

Topsham Town will be playing in the new Devon League but Cronies will not be.

I understand that talks are ongoing to determine if the previous groundshare where Cronies played Home games at Topsham (in the Devon & Exeter) will still continue.

Looking at the "proof copy" of SCSL handbook that I have received, it appears that Bloxwich, nee Red Star Alma will be playing at the same ground as last season, Old Red Lion Ground.

One to keep an eye on - per Combined Counties website: "We are awaiting confirmation of a name change, namely Kensington Borough to be re-named Kensington & Ealing Borough." Still playing at Leatherhead, Surrey, though...Crazy


The league has now confirmed this change of name (Hammersmith will have to wait..).

Hi Paul, perhaps, if they intend to continue playing at Leatherhead, then there are a few more Borough names they could add to their name. They could challenge for longest club name in football??? Talking of Leatherhead did I read on here somewhere that they could move at some stage to River Lane or is that just a 4G cage etc & used by Leatherhead Youth. Is it same venue though presumably much changed used by Mole Valley in Coco about 10 years ago. Do any adult teams use it now. Sorry off topic but just popped into my head.

There was a suggestion a while ago that Leatherhead may move to River Lane, where their youth set-up is based, but they subsequently committed to staying at Fetcham Grove. Dave 56 will know better than me if the idea might be resurrected but I suspect it's now dead.

The River Lane ground is indeed the old Combined Counties ground of Mole Valley and it is much changed. Floodlit and 3G, spectator access down one side but there are two seated stands (same unusual design as at Team Solent) and a decent little clubhouse. A very good little set up. I don't think any other adult clubs use it but I could be mistaken, again Dave 56 is the man.

(EDIT: Leatherhead have occasionally played pre-season friendlies at River Lane so, if anyone's really keen to get there for an adult game, keep an eye on this summer's schedule).

The move is dead in the water. The youth setup is a completely separate entity. All home first team PSF's will be played at Fetcham Grove.

Chapel Gate is/was Bournemoouth Sports' ground during their Dorset Premier League days. I am presuming they will use the same pitch within the complex, which is immediately adjacent to Bournemouth airport. Not sure who will use Parley Sports' pitch.

If they are still going next season, I would imagine Parley Sports Reserves in Dorset League Division 2 or their Bournemouth League Premier Division team, who appear to be a separate entity to the Dorset Premier League club, will still be playing at Parley Sports Club, perhaps moving to the main pitch there. The FA must have relaxed the rule that merged teams have to start in the league of the lowest level club as Bournemouth Sports were in Bournemouth League Division 1 (Step 9) last season.

Looks like Eynesbury Rovers reserves have transferred from the Cambs County League to the Beds.

Eynesbury United have taken the place of the reserves in the Cambs. United's Twitter feed implies there may be a link between United and Rovers so their emergence may be the result of some kind of restructure or breakaway, but I haven't looked into that.

Llanwddyn have resigned from the Montgomeryshire League, citing a shortage of players, but possibly not helped by the local council not allowing changing rooms to be built on the village ground. Llanwddyn played at Llanrhaeadr last season.

Something doesn't add up there.

If Eynesbury United are completely new and separate club then why have they been parachuted into the Premier Division of the Cambridgeshire County League, missing the out 6 levels below it.

And who's place have they taken in the Prem - the suspiciously (or coincidentally as we are led to believe) missing Eynesbury Rovers Reserves....

Being realistic, they're probably "separate" in the sense that teams like Thame Rangers and Brackley Town Saints are from their first teams: supposedly separate but in reality just a Reserve side. Either that or we've got a situation akin to Biggleswade FC, but if that's the case their sudden elevation makes no sense (unless the argument is that last season's Eynesbury Rovers Reserves became Eynesbury United and the Reserve team for this current season are the new team).

I assume that Peterborough North End Sports are similar in that they'll just be Peterborough Sports Reserves under a different name, and that they'll use the apparent merger with Bretton North End to seek promotion next season.

Just to add that the rule allows for a vacancy created before the AGM to be filled at the FALC's discretion. As the rule is silent on whether the AGM of the league whose club is chosen to fill this vacancy has already taken place, there would appear to still be scope for the EMCL to gain a replacement club.

If FC Bolsover resign AT the AGM, though, then we might be in unchartered territory! I dare say all will be revealed at the AGM shortly.

Either that or we've got a situation akin to Biggleswade FC, but if that's the case their sudden elevation makes no sense (unless the argument is that last season's Eynesbury Rovers Reserves became Eynesbury United and the Reserve team for this current season are the new team).

When I came across this recently, the "Eynesbury United" twitter feed was, in the past season, tweeting updates for Eynesbury Rovers Reserves.

When I Google "Eynesbury United twitter", I get the text below as the first result. As you can see, the twitter handle was "@ResRovers" but the twitter feed no longer exists (presumably deleted recently). My best guess is "Reserves become United and new team are Reserves" or , equivalently, "Reserves leave to form United and Rovers find new players for Reserves".

Being legalistic, I would probably suggest that United are the new team because they've left Rovers.

Not confirmed officially but just been told Bolsover have resigned from EMCL.


Now officially confirmed, as if 6.00pm they have withdrawn.
No decision on replacement.

So why have Bolsover taken this course of action? They certainly had little complaint about the move to the EMCL and after the torrid time they had last season were talking in terms of new beginnings.

Just to add that the rule allows for a vacancy created before the AGM to be filled at the FALC's discretion. As the rule is silent on whether the AGM of the league whose club is chosen to fill this vacancy has already taken place, there would appear to still be scope for the EMCL to gain a replacement club.

If FC Bolsover resign AT the AGM, though, then we might be in unchartered territory! I dare say all will be revealed at the AGM shortly.


On past form the LMC seem to prefer promotion to reprieves so my guess is Clay Cross to the EMCL.

Aren't constitutions basically rubber stamped at League AGMs?

Not when a team pulls out just before the AGM! As detailed elsewhere on here, the vacancy can still be filled irrespective of any other league AGMs having taken place but whether the FA choose to do so remains to be seen.

Eynesbury United are a completely separate club to Eynesbury Rovers. They were formed (last season) by a group of players who left Eaton Socon FC who wanted to play at a higher level of football than the Cambs League. The original plan was to apply for UCL/Spartan South Mids Football for this season but they missed the cut off date for applications.
The agreement between the club is for a ground share only so that they can aim for promotion in the future.

According to the League's Registration Secretary the following Trelawny Legue clubs have folded

Halsetown, Penwith Exiles, and Madron first teams

The reserves for both Carharrack and St Buryan

The third teams of both Mousehole and Hayle

St Buryan folded and re-formed and have been placed in bottom division - the four divisions are now Premier, Championship, 1st and 2nd

It seems the only semi logical answer is that Eynesbury United, a new team last season as previously posted, have managed to take over Rovers reserves & separated them from 1st team thus being able to take reserves position at step7.

But no club should be allowed to effectively steal another club's league status (outside MK, anyway), why would Rovers led that happen? . It seems more likely that United are a pseudo reserve team and Rovers reserves are effectively a third team.

I agree. I was just stating what seems to have happened to enable the teams to take up the positions they have. I am not saying it is the right way of going about it. A less convoluted route would be for existing reserves to simply mock a separation from 1st team & change name as many clubs seem to have done before. The same result is achieved in that Eynesbury have teams at step 6 & 7. The fact that they are both playing at same ground suggests it was not a hostile takeover!!

Wilby Rising Sun were playing under that name last season. I think they were Wellingborough Rising Sun before that. Many of the players had WRS tracksuits. Not sure if the original Wilby FC folded or merged with WRS.

Now that the step 7 lineups have been released, here is a summary of the changes at Steps 1-7.

A quieter year than has been the ase the past few seasons.


Closures
Bradford Olympic
Great Baddow
Harton & Westoe Colliery Welfare

Name Changes
AFC Emley change their name to Emley
AFC Hornchurch change their name to Hornchurch
Bretton North End change their name to Peterborough North End Sports
East Yorkshire Carnegie change their name to East Hull
Enfield 1893 change their name to Enfield
Eynesbury Rovers Reserves change their name to Eynesbury United
St. Stephen’s Borough change their name to Saltash Borough
The Newcastle Corinthians League has changed it name to the Northeastern Combination

Mergers
Aylesbury and Bedgrove Dynamos merge to form Aylesbury Vale Dynamos
Ball Haye Green absorb Staffordshire Moorlands
Bretton North End and Peterborough Sports development section have merged to form Peterborough North End Sports
Cronies and Topsham Town merge to form Topsham Cronies
North Ferriby Athletic have merged into North Ferriby as their reserve side (North Ferriby Reserves)

Unknown Status
Bedmond Sports (not showing in Herts Senior County Prem despite avoiding relegation)
Bushey Sports (not showing in Herts Senior County Prem despite finishing third last term)
Headingley (not showing in the West Yorkshire League despite not finish in the relegation zone)
Hedinghams United (not showing in Essex & Suffolk Border League Prem – despite avoiding bottom two)
Welbeck Lions (resigned from the Central Mids, uncertain if joining another league)
Wormingford Wanderers (not showing in Essex & Suffolk Border League Prem – despite avoiding bottom two)

Leagues closing
The Andover & District League and Salisbury & District League (Saturday section) have merged (new league name not yet revealed
St Edmundsbury League closes down
Tyneside Amateur League is absorbed into the Northern Alliance as its new Division Three
West Riding County Amateur League closes down (with the bulk of its remaining clubs joining the Yorkshire Amateur League)



Looking through the Hellenic website yesterday I noticed that Pegasus Juniors are showing as Hereford Pegasus on the League site. They appear to have a re-modeled club badge with that name on it, but the Club website and twitter pages don't refer to Hereford Pegasus at all as they are still Pegasus Juniors if you search for them. Anyone heard anything?

You keep saying this and most on here are well aware Richard, but what would you have us call the divisions that sit directly below Step 7 divisions?

A lot of the division below the officially designated Step 7 divisions are still part of a hierarchy. I.e. Anglian Combination Division One is still a level higher than Anglian Combination Division Two. And as all levels above this are called Step 1, Step 2...Step 7....then surely you must see why we call the divisions below Step 8, Step 9 etc.

Bedmond Sports were in the Herts Premier at Step 7.
They took a voluntary demotion to the 1st division.

To me, 1 below Step 7 is Step 8.
Apologies if this upsets the purists, but I'm pretty sure that almost everyone ( including the purists) knows exactly what I mean.

Headingley's twitter feed is a lot more forthcoming than the X for no publicity that comes from the West Yorkshire League.
Lots of entries from them for training etc so I'd fully expect them to be in the same league next season, at worst one division lower.

No. Anything below Step 7 is "recreational football" (FA term, not mine) and any team from that level is potentially just 1 application away from Step 7.

I'll keep on saying "Step 8 does not exist" until people stop referencing it.

The Glos FA Handbook specifically refers to three Step 8 leagues in the county - besides the GNS, the Bristol Premier Combination and the Bristol & Suburban League.

Seems to be a common theme in that area, alongside Worthing Brazilian Masters Youth.

Was discussed at the Ferring Parish Council meeting.

Leagues closing
The Andover & District League and Salisbury & District League (Saturday section) have merged (new league name not yet revealed [font]


This merger is no longer happening. The majority of SDFL clubs didn't want to go through with it in the end.

This is why Broughton and Kingsclere were allowed to move very late on into Hampshire League Div 1, so they had a league to play in as there were only 4 clubs willing to play in the Andover league.

CK Andover have moved to the Basingstoke League. Not sure, not that I've looked where Tidworth Town have looked to play (if they have at all)

Grappenhall Sports have withdrawn their 1st team from the Cheshire League. A tweet posted this lunchtime states:

"It is with great sadness and regret that we have to inform you that our 1st team has had to dissolve due to limited players and increasing costs.

However, with a very successful u16 team we do hope to bounce back in the near future."

Looking at the new FullTime site, on their club profile they’ve been called Solent University since 2017-18 but their team name has been Team Solent.

I’ve just searched for them now on FullTime, the club is called Shaftesbury Town but the team name is Shaftesbury. Their reserve team in the Dorset Premier League is Shaftesbury Town Reserves.

Pilton Academicals have sadly resigned from the North Devon League. They had been sharing at Barnstaple Town's ground.


****CLUB STATEMENT****
It's with deep regret that Pilton Academical's Football Club will cease existence after today.
After many struggles in the last season and a half with gaining players the club has decided that we physically couldn't continue this season with the threadbare squad that we maintained.
After only winning promotion 2 years ago and playing on arguably the best pitch in the league it's difficult to understand why we've struggled.
I'd like to thank the league for their understanding, the current and former management team that kept the club going and the players that have played to keep this club going over many years (some are due testimonials 😉) and have many fond memories.
Just to update this* I'd also like to thank Barnstaple Town and Aaron for allowing us the use of there pitch and helping to keep the club going.
Thanks again everyone,

We lose another league…

Although not confirmed anywhere – 2 of the 5 remaining members of the Salisbury & District League have appeared in the finally-released Dorset League constitution – both joining the bottom division. This is Devizes Inn United and Porton Sports. These are two of the more established clubs left standing in the Salisbury & District League and so not too surprising that they are the ones to survive the league;s demise. There is no way these two clubs would have joined the Dorset League, if the Salisbury League was still going.

(The Salisbury & District League’s Sunday section is continuing on though).

With ALL leagues surrounding the Salisbury & District League having now declared their lineups (Ttowbridge & District, Southampton, Dorset), there is nowhere else for the remaining three members to pop up and so we can only assume the other three have chosen to fold their Saturday sides at the very least.

Mid Lancs League Div 2 side Wesham FC have changed their name to Kirkham & Wesham Athletic

From their Facebook page:

"As we move towards the coming season and what will be our 10th year as a club we have some massive news.

As most of you already know for 8 out of the 10 years we existed solely as a Sunday league football club. Last year year we took the plunge, for growth and entered into the Saturday football league's, competing in the mid Lancashire football league.

This year however in order to grow further and include the wider area we have decided on a name change.

Going forward the club will now be known as Kirkham and Wesham Athletic Football Club. Now we realise the fantastic history AFC Fylde had under the name Kirkham and Wesham. So in order for there to be no comparisons and the importance for us to respect the history and not be in any shadows we have added the Athletic."

Both Bickleigh and Spreyton (Div 4 & 6 of the Devon & Exeter League) have folded.

Real shame about Bickleigh as not that long ago they were at Step 7 at the Happy Valley ground.

Rumours too that Axminster Town Reserves are going too.

Well that makes it a rather neat and tidy 3 divisions of 16 for the LSL (for now).

As it's too early for a 2020-21 name changes thread or indeed a new 3G thread, this will have to go here.
Mickleover Sports have announced that they will become simple MICKLEOVER FC as from the beginning of next season, to accompany their recent grant of planning permission for an artificial pitch, which will involve moving the pitch and stands several metres nearer the main road, so that the football and cricket footprints no longer overlap.
New pitch to be installed by July 2020.

Resigned from the league - still have a vets side in the Bristol Corinthians League

Below is part a letter sent out to B&D league secretaries in early August by the league secretary. (The bit I've left off deals with referees and details of the pre-season meeting). There might be more changes since this letter.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

All B&D League club Secretaries,

There has been a lot of issues & movements within the league & you should now be aware that the following divisions have had amendments carried out to help some struggling clubs these are listed below as a summary of the actions since the AGM.

Stapleton AFC after having years of recent success has requested to be dropped from the BPC League & will concentrate on the one remaining side in the B&D League to re-build in Divison one (1/8/19)

B&D League
Senior Division - Made for Ever - resigned Yesterday 5/8/19

Division One - Rangeworthy - resigned 25/7/19 & Tormarton moved back down into Divison Two 31/7/19

Division Two - Hillfields OB reserves - resigned 18/7/19 & Add Tormarton into this Division 31/7/19

Division Three - Frampton Ath - resigned 18/6/19

Division Four - Cribbs 'B' moved up into division three to balance divisions - 20/6/19

Division Four - Fishponds Ath - entered into the division - 20/6/19

Division Five - The Phoenix FC & Made for Ever were missing from WGS Website. ( Made For Ever only one team now ) 5/8/19

This is where we are at present, I've had lots of requests from clubs to help them out with difficult situations brought on by mainly one thing players!! or lack of them be it through commitment or other distractions taking them away from Saturday Football.

I appreciate that this in some cases has caused all sorts of issues for you the Secretaries of the league but the Chairman & I ask you all to hang in there & see it through.

I couldn't find anything on this forum about Grendon Rangers but, as implied by mention of Karen, the club's resignation was announced on the Spartan South Midlands League Twitter account. Shame they've gone.

EDIT - Karen did actually mention it on this forum, under "NLM Main Site - errors and corrections 2019-20".

Sidlesham have announced that they have resigned from the Southern Combination with immediate effect.

"It is with much sadness and regret that as with immediate effect, Sidlesham First Team have withdrawn from the SCFL. The local parish council have cancelled our current agreement for use of the pitch. Negotiations are ongoing for a new agreement, but at this present time the club is unable to operate at county level. The current uncertainty surrounding the club has made it impossible to recruit new, or now retain existing players to compete at the level required. Our West Sussex team will continue playing with the hope that a suitable agreement can be reached with the council.
Sidlesham FC won’t be commenting further at this time."

...and a real problem for this board if comments are based on the semantics of a club statement and not the statement itself.

I would much rather hear about the action the council was taking, and whether the club statement is justified than argue as to whether this is a county level football league or not

Re: [leohoenig] 2019-20 Name Changes, Mergers & Closures [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

No one is stopping you from asking those questions.

I guess my remark is the rather blasé way they have resigned, without trying to find a groundshare or ask the league for some kind of timeframe in which to sort themselves out, a small initial break from their fixtures to work something out, like their resignation is of no real consequence, as its just county league level, “we can still carry on in the West Sussex League”. Other clubs fought tooth and nail over the summer to get into or retain their step 7 status only to be denied, or relegated. Sidlesham’s (a rather unstable club at this level as it is) statement just seemed a little, as I said, blasé, taking things for granted, and belittling the level (a privilege for a lot of clubs) they were actually playing at.

I wish them well on their journey back though.


A bigger problem for this board is certain members taking constant umbrage with other people's comments and scolding them for their posts just because they don't necessary like them or agree with them.

I thought it was your comment that was blasé, rather their initial statement. In turn this caused KYM to defend the idea that the Southern Combination is a County level league, rather than consider the statement made by the club. I would like to know more about what it is that has caused Sidlesham to make this decision. I have read the local paper report and the twitter feed from the club (which states they will not be making a further statement at the moment). Nothing says why there is a sudden change in conditions, and why the West Sussex League team can play on a pitch now denied to the Step 6 club.

I can understand it if you were to suggest that the reason stated was false, and it is a reaction to gaining two points only from seven games.

Just 7 results to reinstate should Sidlesham's situation be reversed.

Sidlesham Parish Council response; https://www.chichester.co.uk/...ion-league-1-9087242


Quote
The council issued a statement to the Observer which said: "Sidlesham Parish Council, owners of the Memorial Playing, Field is keen to develop the use of the facility as a community sports and recreation centre.

"In order to progress this development, the Parish Council needs the flexibility to attract other users and grant funding bodies. The Parish Council therefore terminated the existing open ended arrangement with Sidlesham Football Club and offered the club the opportunity to continue to use the pitch under an annually reviewed agreement.

"Sidlesham Football Club advised the Parish Council that this short term contract was not acceptable under football league rules.

"At the 18 September Parish Council meeting, attended by officials of the club, it was agreed that the Parish Council would work with Sidlesham Football Club and the Football League to find a mutually acceptable form of words to resolve the issue.

"The Parish Council Chairman contacted the League as agreed and has been advised that Sidlesham Football Club has already resigned from the League. The Parish Council is disappointed that the Football Club has made this decision."

Right...so basically Sidlesham have overreacted? Thrown their toys out of the pram and resigned just like that with no warning and no real desire to fight to stay at Step 6.


I wish them continued existence, but if the above is true, lets hope they aren't allowed back at Step 6 (or "County Level" as they like to think of it) level any time soon. As I say they're are clubs up and down the country that would give their right arm to be in Sidlesham's shoes, with a ground they can call home and a division with vacancies that repeatedly means relegation is no threat. Some have fought appeals to retain places at Step 6, some have been fighting on the pitch to get up season after season. And then there's clubs like Sidlesham who just throw it all the way because they're a bit irked by their local council, and feel like throwing a paddy!

Possibly an overreaction, possibly pragmatism - is there (and this is a genuine question, as I don't know!) a quote "mutually acceptable form of words" that would sit within the FA's standard rules for Step 6 re security of tenure?

For the record, the league have notified clubs that Sidlesham's results will be expunged and the table altered accordingly, but that doesn't seem to have happened (at least that I've seen) as yet.

North Lancashire League - Last season's champions Mayfield United have resigned, pulling their Reserve team also, so the club appears to have folded altogether.


Meanwhile in the dwindling Chester & Wirral League, St. Saviours are gone! And Bollington have disappeared from the even more dwindling Crewe & District League.

Possibly being a little premature (Wouldn’t be the first time), but Chelmsford City are in the High Court this Wednesday, 6th November facing a winding up petition from HMRC. As a consequence the National League has prevented them bringing in 2 Ipswich youngsters on loan.

I did not see that one coming, although the noises from Chelmsford are ones saying ‘Don’t panic’....

Brighton & Worthing League - Sompting and Brighton Lights have both failed to start the season and have now finally been removed from the FA Full Time Table. Sompting, as a club, survive though, as their reserves remain playing in the West Sussex League.


The way this league has been haemorrhaging clubs the last few years, despite the merger, I expect this league to be down to a single division next season! I think its long term future is now increasingly in doubt and expect if it comes to it the survivors may opt to abandon ship and move to the Mid Sussex League soon. Why clubs like Ovingdean and Northbrook still play in this league is quite strange.


Next door in the Mid Sussex League, the exotically named Chasgossian & Mauritian Association have gone!

The reserves couldn't raise a team last Saturday so had to call the game off, so I guess it'll depend on how many of the remaining players are willing to drop a level.

It looks like Pewsey Vale's 1st team will be playing in the Wilts Senior League (therefore taking over the Development mantle).

They've just appointed a new manager and have tweeted about re-grouping, re-energising and re-building

That is the rumour doing the rounds...a lot!!

Pewsey is sadly in the middle of nowhere, when it comes to having any sort of group of clubs near them. Wiltshire as a county is split three ways when it comes to Step 5/6 (Western teams in the Western, northern teams in the Hellenic and southern teams in the Wessex. That leaves the east, where Pewsey is, literally stranded.

On the one hand, there was actually no apparent need to move Pewsey Vale last summer. They were ok in the Hellenic, and the Hellenic was not bursting at the seems, warranting their transfer. But the FA moved them anyway, quite unnecessarily.

But the division Pewsey Vale were in last season was transformed over the summer, with the mass movement of the Herefordshire sides into along with Malvern Town.

So...on the other hand, had they stayed they'd be travelling up to Hereford, Wellington and Malvern.

So they were literally caught in the middle, between a rock and hard place! And I think the FA knew this and felt the club would fair better in the Wessex.

Also Pewsey did not appeal their move. And the Wessex clubs aren't THAT far away, this is step 6 football after all, they're going to have to travel. Maybe its better off at Step 7 for the time being.

Vale have issued a statement on Twitter,
They DO blame the move to the Wessex (and they state "despite an appeal") which caused a loss of players due to increased travelling.
They have confirmed that they will now run one senior team in the Wilts and an U18 in the Wilts Floodlit.
Fair play to them.

Increased their travelling?

Pewsey is 22 miles from Salisbury (2 clubs)
17 miles from Andover (2 clubs)
29 miles from Whitchurch
27 miles from Downton
Totton (50), Folland (53), Ringwood (38), Verwood (45)

In fact their longest journey would have been to US Portsmouth - 64 miles away.

Staying in the Helleinc West - Hereford (2 clubs) is 92 miles away, Welligton is 86 miles, Malvern is 80 miles, Stonehouse (48 miles), Moreton (55), Newent (61), Bourton (47), fellow Wilts club Malmesbury would be their nearest opponent 31 miles away.

The only reason their travelling has gone up is because of the fact they have been moved to a properly sized division (of 20), as opposed to the 12 team division they were last season.

On the face of it the move to the Wessex is much better for travelling. It appears Pewsey merely don't like being in a 20 team division.

Lampton Park's Twitter feed states availability issues meant they had trouble fielding what they felt was a competitive team, so they decided to fold the Saturday side yesterday.

Looks like Holyhead Town are going from the Welsh Alliance League

https://clwbpeldroed.org/2019/12/01/holyheadtown-welshallianceleague/

Idea would be to keep the reserves in the Angelsey League

BIDEFORD COMMUNITY AFC have resigned from the North Devon League. League statement below:


Bideford CAFC Withdraw from the league.
Morning All
Its with great sadness that I am writing this email to inform you all that we have lost another club from the league, unfortunately Bideford CAFC have confirmed they are withdrawing from the league with immediate effect due to a unprecedented amount of injuries and players moving up to higher leagues has forced them to this situation with lack of players....
We as a league are just as gutted as the club to see this happen.
We wish them all the very best going forward and hopefully look forward to them returning with a transitional team from the youth sector soon.

And another North Devon League casualty: BARNSTAPLE FC, league statement below


Barnstaple FC Withdraw
Yet again I write with sadness to see another club fold.
Barnstaple FC made a personal appeal to the LMC to allow them to withdraw their 1st team out of the Senior division and retain their reserves in Intermediate 3.
Advising that players will not step up from the Reserves and other players were leaving, they no longer have the numbers and not attracting any new players.
After they made their appeal and answered any questions the LMC had and left the room, I gave the LMC the result of the vote that we asked all member clubs for feedback, to see if they supported this as well
Unfortunately it was not well supported.
LMC Vote - Yes 5, No 6, Abstain 2
Member Clubs Vote - Yes 15, No 12, Support LMC Decision 14, Abstain 1
This passionate and at some points heated discussion by the LMC lasted over an hour before the LMC voted.
With not even 12 hours passing, Barnstaple FC withdraw their entire club with immediate effect.
Barnstaple FC are looking to reapply next season with a Barnstaple Youth team stepping up into open aged football.
We wish them all the very best moving forward and look forward to seeing them back soon.

Vale have issued a statement on Twitter,
They DO blame the move to the Wessex (and they state "despite an appeal") which caused a loss of players due to increased travelling.
They have confirmed that they will now run one senior team in the Wilts and an U18 in the Wilts Floodlit.
Fair play to them.


Increased their travelling?

Pewsey is 22 miles from Salisbury (2 clubs)
17 miles from Andover (2 clubs)
29 miles from Whitchurch
27 miles from Downton
Totton (50), Folland (53), Ringwood (38), Verwood (45)

In fact their longest journey would have been to US Portsmouth - 64 miles away.

Staying in the Helleinc West - Hereford (2 clubs) is 92 miles away, Welligton is 86 miles, Malvern is 80 miles, Stonehouse (48 miles), Moreton (55), Newent (61), Bourton (47), fellow Wilts club Malmesbury would be their nearest opponent 31 miles away.

The only reason their travelling has gone up is because of the fact they have been moved to a properly sized division (of 20), as opposed to the 12 team division they were last season.

On the face of it the move to the Wessex is much better for travelling. It appears Pewsey merely don't like being in a 20 team division.

Probably depends where their players live, I'd imagine most were from Swindon where the Hellenic League would have suited them better and the switch to the Wessex League would have meant more travelling for them and the club having to attract players from a smaller pool in the Salisbury and Andover area.

Also news from Wiltshire that Holt FC have resigned from the county league, not a great surprise given they had left their village to groundshare at Westbury United. Hopefully they will be back in the Trowbridge League next season on their own ground again.
