CLIVE Jones has called for clubs who persistently postpone games in the Montgomeryshire League to be punished.
Jones resigned as manager of Derek Mills Cup winners Four Crosses Reserves at the end of a season blighted by cancellations.
The former Trewern United manager became increasingly frustrated after several league games were called off at late notice, with guilty club’s escaping punishment.
“I have enjoyed my year at Crosses, the club is fantastic and all the lads have been great,” said Jones. “I would like to thank Nick Popyk, the committee and the players for everything over the past year and wish them luck for next season.”
However Jones insisted clubs which repeatedly failed to fulfil fixtures must face points deductions or the league would continue to lose credibility among clubs.
“There has been struggles with the league and us not knowing where we are playing, sometimes until 24 hours before a game,” said Jones “We have had a lot of games called off at short notice with the clubs going unpunished, so doing it on four or five occasions.”
