The Optic NEN League has suffered a major loss this week with one of its founder members, Dilham United, calling it a day.
They informed the league that due to a lack of players in a confined area, continuation was impossible.
Secretary Roger Bunton stated they were left with no other alternative than to take the sad decision. League secretary Malcolm Burton said he and his colleagues feared there would be more.
