Elmore To Quit Western League

Elmore have decided to leave the Toolstation Western League at the end of the season.

The Tiverton-based club are switching to the Carlsberg South West Peninsula League after thirty-four years.

Football vice-chairman Neville Crocker said: “It’s very much a geographical thing.

“There won’t be a great deal in the mileage but it will be more convenient.

“A lot of the teams we play now are Bristol based. Joining the Peninsula League means we’ll be playing a lot more derbies against teams like Cullompton Rangers, Witheridge and Bovey Tracey.”

Manager Peter Buckingham also feels that facilities in the Peninsula League are generally better.

Both leagues are on Step 6 of the non-League Pyramid so the standard of football played by Elmore will be the same.
