Northern Athletic to Fold

It's been confirmed Northern Athletic Football Club will disband at the end of the season.

Formally Jurby, the organisation changed it's name to Northern Athletic ahead of the current campaign to try and bring more momentum.

Unfortunately, the committee says this has now faded bringing back past problems such as a small squad and a lack of competition for places.

However, despite dwindling numbers, the club is committed to finishing all remaining fixtures for both the first and combination teams.
