This one seems to crop up every year, but I don't think it's Shaftesbury Town, just Shaftesbury. Their Twitter and Facebook pages back this up, as does the Wessex League website.


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.

Marsden have tweeted their resignation from the Huddersfield & District League. A real shame as it's one of the nicest grounds I've been to.

Thankfully Bournemouth Manor don't belong on this thread as they haven't changed their name, merged or....closed - they're remaining in the Bournemouth League.

Ickwell & Old Warden have issued a statement via Twitter that they are withdrawing from the Bedfordshire County League with immediate effect. Reason given is..."No manager, no players, no choice."

They have been members of the league for 67 years.

Why not Cymru Premier League? Just "Cymru Premier" just sounds too slangy to me...........

So I assume they won't be taking part in the Cornwall FA cup comps and their draw opponents will get a walkover.

Chinnor have released a statement saying they've withdrawn from the Hellenic East 1 for this season. They do say they'll return at some point in the future.

South Park Rangers gone from the Weston and District league. Pretty sure they had been going since the 60’s.

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

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.

There is a Heritage W S that appears in junior division 2 of the Southampton league so I assume that’s the same team from the Salisbury league.

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."
