Droylsden Football Club have announced this morning that they will not be fielding a team in competition this season due to the financial situation brought about by the Covid 19 pandemic.
Club Chairman Dave Pace told the website that current uncertainty around the pandemic regulations meant that it was impossible to know when the club’s function rooms, a major contributor to club finances, would be able to open normally and that the pandemic had seriously effected the income of its current sponsor.
The football club had, he told us, been heavily subsidised by him since he took over as Chairman over thirty years ago and and as manager in 1996
During that time the club reached the top of the non league pyramid.
While not being able to predict when football would resume at the Butchers Arms, Mr Pace said that that if the circumstances were right he would consider resuming the playing side again if the financial circumstances allowed.
There will be no further statement from the club
