PERRY Street & Yonder Hill FC have withdrawn their side from Division 1 of this season's Macron Devon & Exeter League.

A statement on the league website reads: "The League has been rocked by a third team pulling out of Div 1. Perry Street have called time on their brief spell in the D and E league.

"The club have been unable to find a replacement manager and with a number of players moving to other clubs they felt they had no choice.

"The decision means Division 1 is down to 11 teams as Cullompton Reserves and newly promoted Woodbury have already withdrawn."

League secretary Neil Anthony, a former Chard Town player, said: "The Devon and Exeter Football League Management are aware of the lack of teams in Division One, due to teams dropping out.

"We will be considering options to supplement Division One fixtures at the September meeting."

Perry Street finished fourth in last season's Division One.
