Percy Main Amateurs have announced the club is set to fold.

The club say they have submitted notice of their resignation to the Northern Football Alliance, with effect from the end of this season.

The Villagers, who were 13th in this season’s Premier Division, say they will fulfill their Challenge Cup fixtures, which get underway next month.

As part of a club statement, it was explained: “I realise that this may come as a bolt from the blue to some, and the decision has not been taken lightly, but unfortunately, this has been coming, and the current season in particular has found the club desperately short of help behind the scenes, both on a matchday basis and as regards to the many tasks which have to be carried out through the week in order to maintain football at Percy Main. Sadly, one of the pitfalls of having a ground and building which come under the sole responsibility of the club, as opposed to hiring a facility that many do at our playing level.

“In some respects, the COVID pandemic and subsequent lockdown(s) have perhaps, and in a strange way, done us a favour, as we may have struggled to operate, with games coming week in and week out in what would have been a ‘normal’ season.”
