Lamphey have continued a saddening trend in Pembrokeshire football by becoming the latest Division One side to confirm they are folding.

Rumours had surfaced that they would cease to continue following their 11-1 loss to Hakin in the Senior Cup last weekend, and last night (Wednesday), a number of players appeared to confirm they had folded via social media.

Brian Hawkins, of the Pembrokeshire Football League, duly confirmed the news this morning.

Nico Morrison and Billy Davies had signed elsewhere prior to this announcement, but Hawkins added further transfers now can't take place until the club pays all outstanding fines.

Jonny Goodrick, who had managed the side this season, told Telegraph Sport: "It’s such a shame what has happened to this great club.

"It was a struggle to string a consistent team together every week and the commitment wasn’t there from the lads after an unlucky string of results.

"But for me and everyone that has ever been involved at Lamphey, you couldn’t have a met a nicer bunch of lads. And I wish all the boys the best of luck in the future."

Last season, both West Dragons and Angle folded despite their top flight status, following Tenby who have now reformed in Division Five after withdrawing from the Pembrokeshire League in July 2017.

The Stags won back to back promotions to reach Division One, being crowned Division Three champions in the 2014/15 season before finishing second in Division Two the following campaign, just a point behind winners Monkton.

And under then manager Alan Kitts they enjoyed a good start to life back in the top league, finishing fifth. They slipped back somewhat the following campaign but still ended in tenth, comfortably clear of any relegation danger.

Under new manager Goodrick they had found things hard going in the early part of this season, but recent draws with Pennar and St Clears, both games they perhaps should have won, had suggested they were turning a corner. Indeed, ahead of their scheduled game with Goodwick this Saturday they were three points clear of the bottom two.

But eight months after their second team dropped out of Division Four having failed to fulfil a number of fixtures, the first team has followed suit.

It now appears only one side will go down, news sure to alert both Milford United and Herbrandston who both lie bottom of the table with no points.

The Division One points table will also be adjusted accordingly with Saundersfoot, Carew, Merlins Bridge, Monkton Swifts, and Hakin all losing three points, with Clarbie Road, Pennar Robins, and St Clears will have one point deducted.
