HADLEIGH are to be dropped from London League Division Three North East after cancelling this weekend's match against Diss.

The troubled club have now missed the maximum of three league games this season, as they were unable to field a full squad. The future for the Layham Road side was due to be decided at an EGM last night. They face playing in either the Suffolk or Eastern Counties leagues next season, following what has been a very difficult time for the club.

Chairman John Halls said: “If not this weekend, it would have been highly unlikely that we would have been able to meet all of our remaining fixtures.

“Rugby will continue in Hadleigh, and we will continue to rebuild the club.
