This morning I have been made aware that Edgware Town Football Club will no longer be able to carry on and with immeditate affect have withdrawn from the league.
I am complety devestated and dumstuck and I feel quite frankly sick. The club had just enjoyed its best season ever in the 68 year history and were ready to take their place at the next level of the non league pyrmid.
I dont know what to say right now, other then the last ever match at the White Lion Ground will be played on Saturday 21st July, and EVERYONE and I mean EVERYONE should come to this game, Gavin Shaw Edgware Town FC Match Secretary
This is a statement I received from club secretary Paul Gregory
"OFFICIAL STATEMENT FROM EDGWARE TOWN FOOTBALL CLUB
It is with regret that I must inform you that we find our present position as a football club untenable.
With the recent purchase of the ground by Barratt Homes and the grant of planning permission by Harrow Council our main sponsor and benefactor has decided to withdraw their support with immediate effect, putting our lease of the White Lion ground in jeopardy.
We must vacate the ground by the end of the year (December 2007) and with no alternative ground or ground sharing agreement available we will be unable to compete in the league and Cup competitions this season.
This is devastating news after the success’s of last season and all the work that has been done at the club to obtain an E grading for the ground. It will be a traumatic blow to the players, supporters and officials of the club who were looking forward to the new season."
