Robins link broken after more than 100 years

Budleigh membership since before the first world war is over

Budleigh Salterton have been members of the Devon & Exeter League since 1914 but the withdrawal of their Reserve team for the 2019 20 season brings an end to a 105 years involvement. It is not only a sad day for the club to have taken this decision but will echo around the League that one of their longest serving members has taken this step. The Budleigh ground is the envy of the majority of clubs in Devon but from now on our current clubs will not have the pleasure of playing at Greenway Lane.

Budleighs first team left for higher pastures a quarter of a century ago, but they have continued to function with a second string and in some years with great success. However that is now at an end.

Hopefully this is a temporary break but the League wish them well although they are hugely sorry the robins have flown away.
