The lease does not effect the club this season and we shall carry on, until the season is out. The club and the Social Club will continue to function normally.
135 years old football club and Amateur Cup finalists are threatened with extinction.
Skelmersdale United have been refused a new lease at their URETEK Stadium ground in Selby Place Skelmersdale.
Chairman Paul Griffiths stated:
“We have been trying for almost 2 years to reach an agreement to remain in business at our stadium, but the owners of the site Chequer Properties have refused to grant an official new lease or extension.
Without this we will be thrown out of the league and the history of this great community club may be lost forever. We would appreciate support and help from anyone to resolve this matter, and keep the Amateur Cup Winners, Skelmersdale United alive and well for the West Lancashire community.
It is unthinkable that one business should decide to close the club down by their unfair actions, and unwillingness to grant this lease. This closure would be tragedy for Skelmersdale United, its fans and the wider community.”
