The Charities Cup raises thousands of pounds every year and has been running continuously since 1948.

“It is a big disappointment to have to cancel the competition,.” said Chappell, “but with only nine teams we felt we had no choice. It would not have been viable.

“Hopefully there will be more interest next year so we can return to The Stanks.”
