SYDENHAMS League clubs have voted unanimously to reject Salisbury City's application to join the Wessex ranks.

It leaves the Wiltshire club with no league to play in following their expulsion from the Football Conference.

And, with a winding-up petition to face on September 1, the Whites' very existence is under threat. 

An SWL statement issued after tonight's EGM at Totton & Eling Sports club read: "The Sydenhams Football League (Wessex) was approached by Salisbury City, with the agreement of the Football Association, with regard to the club joining the league, despite the season having commenced, to assist the club in playing competitive football.

"The league has met with the club but cannot see that the club has a structure in place, on or off the pitch, to compete in the league, whilst the on-going court cases place a question mark over any long term involvement with the league.

"The league, along with its clubs, has therefore rejected the club’s application"

Small clubs go out of business for owing less than Premiership primadonnas get paid for a week.

There's something seriously wrong at the heart of the game we all love.
