Arlesey Town FC have announced that they will discontinue their reserve team at the end of the current season.

The club, whose first team play in Southern Division One Central, currently have eight points from 38 games in SSML Division One and will finish the season bottom of the table.

A club statement said: “We have tried to continue the seamless progression from the youth teams all the way up to the first team but especially this year we have found the ever increasing costs of running a team in the South Midlands League whilst still running a team in the Southern League too much to bear and have had to come to the conclusion that we can no longer continue to run both sides.

“We would like to publicly acknowledge the commitment of the players that have stuck with the side and the hard work and dedication of the current manager Duncan Field has put in this season.”
