Trelawny League club St Keverne are desperately seeking players to avoid folding.

The club, which plays in the Trelawny League Premiership, have requested information from the League on how to fold the club as a result of a lack of players.

The Trelawny League posted a plea for players on their Facebook page on behalf of the club, which read: "Please, if you are at a loose end on a Saturday and you want to help a club to survive, please pop a comment on this post so that the Club can see it and respond accordingly.

"There is absolutely no doubt about it, participation in grassroots football here in Cornwall is declining at an alarming rate. All of us talk about how sad it is once a club has folded but very few will do anything about it until it’s too late.

"We all need to work together to ensure that the clubs in Cornwall can survive - and most importantly, sustain.

"We have seen so many village teams; organisations that offer sport to their local communities drop off the map, leaving nothing for the lads in their villages to do. Please, let's all work together and curb this decline."

St Keverne have played two games in the Premiership this season, with a 1-0 loss at home to Stithians being followed by a 6-1 home defeat to Threemilestone.

They are due to visit Mawnan in their next match a week on Saturday (kick-off 2.30pm).
