Like many clubs in the current economic climate it has become increasingly difficult to finance a reserve side.

It was a tough decision to make but was made in full consultation with the manager.

We are now looking to improve the youth structure of the club so we end up with a youth team capable of generating first team quality players from the local area.

If your good enough you are old enough.

The savings made will be ploughed back into the first team budget hopefully enabling the club to gain promotion in the not too distant future.

It will also mean at least 20 less game on the pitch will help protect the playing surface.

Disappointed by this, especially as, if run right, the reserves could be less costly to the club. The youth set up, from what I can gather is not in a healthy state currently, but yes it is something we need to work on, but still think we should have kept the reserves until the youth set up was ready to step into the breach and start providing players to the first team, which will not happen in 2010-11 season.

I am aware that certain people in the club didn't want a reserves all season, but these people are not running the club, although you would think they were.

As press officer of the Cheshire Football League, I will miss the chance to promote our club within the whole of cheshire and beyond each week.
