A lack of numbers on the playing front forced the management trio of Bill Cammish, Paul Scott and Al Wray to pull the plug on the side.

Club secretary and joint manager Cammish said: “Me, Scotty and Al Wray decided to resign largely because of lack of commitment from players not being available and not letting us know.

“There was a number of times last season we didn’t have a team but were saved by the weather.

“We asked if anyone would want to take over the running of the team, but there was no response.

“It’s really disappointing to have to fold a club with so much history like Rosette, but we didn’t have much of a choice and didn’t want to enter the league, pay FA affiliation fees and then have to resign.”

Long-serving player Dan Thompson said: “Gutted that it has ended like this.

“Great set of lads and made many friends for life.

“Lots of highs and lows, the biggest high being winning the league a few years ago.

“Can’t thank Billy, Scotty and Al enough for what they have done for the club last number of years. Sad day for local football.”
