It is with great regret that Pewsey Vale Football Club have made the decision to withdraw from the Sydenham’s Wessex League with immediate effect.
This wasn’t an easy decision for the club to make, however after several meetings the committee came to this unanimous decision in order to protect our Senior League status and the future of our club.
After the FA’s decision to move the first team into the Wessex League at the start of the season, despite an appeal, losing lots of key players due to the extra demands of travel, we were left with no illusion that it was going to be a difficult season ahead.
And so it has proven. Despite the best efforts of our managers, committee members and players this has had a demoralising effect and has progressively worsened. We feel like we were left with no choice but to make this decision before the club incurred further fines and further points deductions for not being able to fulfil fixtures.
The vision of the club is to continue with a single adult team in the Corsham Print Wiltshire Senior Premier League, as Pewsey Vale F.C and our Under 18’s team in the Corsham Print Under 18’s floodlight league with the view to rebuild in the future.
We thank you all for all the messages of support and understanding at this time, it is much appreciated.
