Sleights chairman Andrew Snaith tweeted on the club's account on Friday: "Thank you to those few prepared to play on next season sadly it wasn't enough and Sleights firsts will now fold.

"To say I'm disappointed & hurt is an understatement.

"Energies will now go into keeping the junior sides going by supporting the excellent volunteers we have there. AS."
