Sunday side Star quit the league


SUNDAY League side Star have folded.

The first division outfit, who lost out in the final of the Scarborough & District FA Sunday Cup just a few weeks ago, have been forced to call time due to a lack of commitment.

This brings a frustrating time for boss Mark Barber to an end, as he struggled to raise the full 11 players for many of last season’s games.

Star had previously been one of Scarborough’s top sides, having won the Sunday Cup a couple of years ago, as well as challenging for title honours.

He said: “It is all down to a lack of players and a lack of commitment.

“We did have a few lads that turned up every week, but the rest just weren’t committed to Sunday football.

“I just feel sorry for our secretary Wendy Kneeshaw, who ran the club almost single-handedly. She put a great amount of effort in that just wasn’t paid back.

“The worst part about it was the fact that nobody told you if they couldn’t turn up for matches.

“I think interest in Sunday football is dying, mainly because there isn’t a pro club in Scarborough anymore.

“There isn’t anything for the youngsters to aspire to, so they don’t seem bothered about playing the game.

“They are more bothered about going out and having a drink and that kind of thing.”
