Nelson resigns from the Vodkat League

Sadly, I have to report that the chairman has tendered the club's resignation from the North West Counties League. I only found officially myself via the league's website this morning, which reported it had received the following correspondence from the club: "It is with much sadness and regret that I have to inform you that the club resigns its position as a member of the Vodkat League. "Over the past few seasons the club has struggled to continue, particularly financially.  Combined with a paucity of officials, sponsors, volunteers and spiralling costs, the decision to with draw the team has been made. "Attempts to sell the club have been unsuccessful so far, despite many meetings and negotiations, but that position remains. "I would like to express my thanks to the member clubs, and in particular the League Management Committee, for the support and co-operation over the years, and extend my best wishes for the future to all". Other than I am absolutely distraught at this confirmation, I can't really put into words my full feelings at the current time, and that's probably for the best.   A very very sad day. While I knew this was very possible, I disappointingly only found out officially myself via the league's website this morning, which reported it had received the following correspondence from the club: "It is with much sadness and regret that I have to inform you that the club resigns its position as a member of the Vodkat League.
