Pencader on the brink

Pencader Football Club of the Costcutter Ceredigion League is on the verge of disbanding due to a lack of players, writes John Adey.
The Reds have already withdrawn their second team from the Reserves Cup and at tonight’s league meeting it is expected that official notice will be given that the Carmarthenshire village club has folded.
Of 36 registered players many have gone elsewhere and in recent weeks it has not been possible to put together a full team. The club is currently one off the bottom of the first division.
Pencader informed the league that it could not fulfil last Saturday’s fixture against Crannog at the Urdd Centre and that it was disbanding.
League secretary Geraint Davies said: “We will wait until the meeting on Tuesday to see how the land lies.
“If we lose Pencader it will be a sad day for the league.”
A source at the club said there was very little chance of the situation improving and with no players available there was no point in going on.
If as expected it comes to that then all results involving Pencader will be null and void.
The club that would benefit most would be St Dogmaels who have been defeated twice by Pencader.
