Smithswood Firs fold

Newly promoted side will not take place in Division One

Smithswood Firs will not take their place in the Midland League First Division this season after announcing they are to fold.

 

The club finished second in Division Two last season and should have taken their place in Division One this term alongside fellow newly promoted side NKF Burbage.

 

But, despite agreeing a groundshare with Lichfield City to ensure they were eligible for promotion, they have confirmed on their website that they will be folding with immediate effect.

 

It means Division One is now running one short of its proposed constitution of 20 teams.

 

We await confirmation from the Midland Football League on whether the league will be restored to 20 teams, or run one club short.
