North Devon Gazette

Following an appeal, Appledore Football Club has been promoted to the Scott Richards Solicitors Devon Football League North & East Division.

The club was initially omitted from the League after a mix-up over deadline dates but, following a meeting with the DFL and Devon FA, Appledore received the fantastic news that they will be playing at a higher level next season

Club Chairman Andy Taylor said: “It’s been a great journey over the past 10 years with success in every league and finally, Appledore F C are getting closer to the position we were in when we dropped out of the Peninsula League.

“The club is forward-thinking and wishes to try and progress wherever possible. This will be a big test but the players and staff are looking forward to the challenge. I would like to personally thank all players that have played a part throughout the years, loyal supporters, committee, coaches, bar staff and sponsors.”
