Pewsey Vale have resigned from Wessex League Division 1. Presumably their reserves will continue in the Wiltshire League.


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.

Rumours are that the nail in the coffin was the transfer back to the Wessex abd that they preferred Hellenic football

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.

Increased their travelling?

Pewsey is 22 miles from Salisbury (2 clubs)

29 miles from Whitchurch

Totton (50), Folland (53), Ringwood (38), Verwood (45)

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.
