KENDAL Town Reserves are one of several teams who have opted out of the Lancashire League.

Along with Workington Reserves, Kendal’s reserve football team will not be joining the league ahead of the 2020-21 season.

A number of other teams are also refusing to take part.

Both teams used the league predominantly to give the younger and fringe players some match practice.

Kendal only joined the league prior to the 2019-20 campaign.

They eventually ran into problems after various different teams pulled out of games leaving the reserves without a game for a number of months.

For Workington, the decision to leave the league ends a longstanding membership with the division which saw them become the longest serving club over the last decade and a half.

Workington will now enter into county league competition for whenever the grassroots football season returns.

Kendal had initially started the reserve season well picking up a creditable 1-1 draw against a strong Lancaster City Reserve Team before defeating Workington. The future of the reserves remains unclear as of this time, with various different options beginning to open up as the new committee begin to take control of the club.
