Steward today (November 16) confirmed that the club’s adult teams have folded. The first team withdrew from the United Counties Southern Premier League last night after withdrawing their reserves from the league Premier League side Peterborough last week.
Star first-team manager Lloyd Burton told the PT today: “I’m gutted. We put in so much effort on and off the pitch and last Saturday was fantastic from all of us.
Star’s last game as a UCL club was a 1-0 home loss to league leaders Hinckley who scored from an 89th-minute penalty on Saturday. Star has collected just seven points in 20 Premier Division games this season.
But Star also manages several young teams from the Peterborough & District Junior Alliance, Peterborough & District Youth and Cambs Womens & Girls Leagues and Steward has pledged to keep them going this season.
They will no longer play at Chestnut Avenue after the club were advised to vacate the ground at the end of the current season. The star’s officials saw this as the final straw in what has become a long-running dispute and decided to leave their home base immediately.
Steward could not comment on the feuds with the owner as he is in talks with his attorneys about the situation. He intends to release a statement later this week.
steward said. “It wouldn’t be fair to the youngsters at the club if their season were to end now. We will find other places for them to play so they can complete their matches.
