Kings Langley have taken it upon themselves to allow Sun Sports to groundshare at their Gaywood Park home at no cost as the club endeavour to secure their survival.

The Evo-Stik Southern League side have displayed fantastic Non-League spirit to help out their Spartan South Midlands Premier Division neighbours.

Last month, the Sun announced that they had folded after being locked out of their Bellmount Wood Avenue ground where they had played for 86 years.

But now, due to the generosity of Kings Langley, London Colney Football Club and Queens School, the club can continue to run.

The first-team will play their home games at Kings at no cost, with Livestock Green FC also generous enough to offer their ground.

The Reserves will play at Queens School, Aldenham Road, Bushey while the Sun youth will play their matches at London Colney’s ground.

A statement on Kings Langley’s website read: “Kings Langley Football Club would like to express their wholehearted support for their friends and neighbours at Sun Sports F.C. as they seek to safeguard their survival.

“In keeping with many others in the football fraternity we are very saddened to witness the threat to a Club with decades of proud history and an exemplary standing in the local football community.

“Clubs such as these should not be allowed to founder through lack of a home.

“We sincerely hope the difficulties Sun Football Club are currently experiencing can be quickly resolved to the satisfaction of all interested parties and allow the return of the Club to their traditional home at Bellmount Wood Avenue as expediently as possible.

“In the intervening period Kings Langley F.C. are happy to extend what assistance we can to support Sun’s continuity.

“Paramount in that endeavour is the need to minimise disruption to Sun’s fixture list.

“To this end Kings Langley F.C. are happy to play a part in hosting matches within the limits of their own commitments. Furthermore Kings Langley F.C. will not impose any hire charge on the Sun club for the use of those facilities.

“That undertaking will inevitably require the formal endorsement of both Club’s respective leagues’.

“Given the circumstances we would implore both bodies to view the situation sympathetically and allow Sun Sports Football a degree of flexibility as they seek to preserve their very existence.

“Kings Langley F.C.’s current primary ground share partner, Watford Ladies F.C. are fully supportive of the proposal to assist Sun Sports F.C. at this difficult time for the club and offer them every encouragement in their campaign for survival.”
