South Devon League Reveal New Clubs And Constitution!
Following the annual league AGM on Monday evening via Zoom the South Devon League revealed the constitution for the new season whilst revealing seven new clubs looking to join for the new season.
Due to the new Devon Football League being formed at step seven at the beginning of the season the South Devon League lost eleven teams before a ball was even kicked meaning they had to reduce the number of division to four.
The new admissions include Windmill FC, Elburton Villa Reserves, Ashburton, South Brent, Liverton United Reserves, Galmpton United Reserves and Brixham Town.
Windmill FC were unbeaten at the top of the table in the Plymouth and West Devon Combination League when football was suspended as a club representative explained that their sideways movement to the South Devon League Premier Division was in search of a new challenge.
Ashburton were also readmitted into the league where the 2017/18 Premier Division Champions will compete in Division One. A year absence has seen Newton Abbot Spurs thirds use their Chuley Road ground as a home base and the clubs will ground-share in the new season.
South Brent, Brixham Town and Liverton United Reserves all returned to the league after last competing in the league in 2014/15, 2016/17 and 2017/18 respectively. The last remaining successful applicant Galmpton United Reserves join Division Three taking the total number of clubs in the league to 58.
