IT’S a case of four in, four out for the Huddersfield District Football League.
Four new clubs have been accepted into the town’s leading football league, which kicks off the new season on September 6.
They are Escorpions, Dewsbury & Savile Town FC, Stag Reserves and YMCA Reserves.
But four clubs - FC Cowlersley, Sovereign Sports, Scissett Reserves and Aimbry Reserves – have all resigned from the league.
The league will again run with the same number of divisions.
Escorpions – who were formed from a group of enthusiasts who play regularly in Greenhead Park – are especially delighted.
“We are really looking forward to our first season of competitive football,” said Jacob Noble, who has been a driving force behind the new club.
“Our home matches will be at Bradley Recreation Ground and we are now getting everything in place.
“There is another fund-raiser for us at the Wagon and Horses in Meltham tomorrow, when a DJ is on and we’ll be having a raffle and the like, and everyone is really enthusiastic.
“We could still do with a few more players signing on and anyone who wants to get involved can give me a ring, but the lads we’ve got already have got a great team spirit and we still get together on Monday nights in Greenhead Park to have a game.”

Sovereign, meanwhile, are one of five new teams to join the Works League for the new season.
That means the league will have 21 clubs, split into two divisions.
The new teams are Sovereign Sports, Aimbry, Kirkheaton Rovers, Lepton Highlanders and Springhead.
The 2008-09 Works League season will get under way on September 13.
