Tigers resign league membership

Worksop Town fans have been left bewildered, after the Evo-Stik League claimed the club have resigned their membership.

A short statement on the league’s website said a letter of resignation had been received and accepted.

This would suggest Worksop – if they continue as a club – would play at Northern Counties East League or below next season.

But there has been no explanation from the board of directors as yet .

The bombshell came only hours after the board met Sandy Lane leaseholder Pete Whitehead to discuss the possibility of staying at the ground.

Again, no official statement has been made since the meeting finished.
