PILTON ACADEMICALS have been forced to withdraw their second team from the North Devon League.
Despite enjoying a successful season with the reserves sitting fifth in intermediate two, the club has struggled to put out a first team in the senior division.
Mark Gammon, the second-team manager, and many of his players will now step up two divisions to take their place.
All of Pilton's results in intermediate two have been deleted.
Their withdrawal means the division is down to 13 teams, with Bratton Fleming and Northam Lions having pulled out already.
