Tennyson have quit the Sunday League for a second and final time.

The first division team originally resigned two weeks ago, but boss Billy Jo Johnson’s side were given a second chance to haul more players together.

Sunday League chairman Mark Plumpton has now confirmed that the club have handed a letter in confirming their full resignation from the league.

This has sparked the league committee to introduce a new rule banning managers of folded teams from taking charge of or playing for other teams for two years.

Plumpton said: “Tennyson have quit and we are holding a meeting next Wednesday to work out what we’ll do.

“We have covered ourselves by putting a new rule in though and the FA have supported us fully with that.

“Hopefully it will stop managers just losing interest and folding clubs.”
