SKIPTON’S best-known football club has folded.

Skipton LMS made the announcement in an email to local soccer officials on Tuesday.

The need to ground-share with another club, a lack of funds and a dwindling number of players were factors in the decision.

The LMS club was founded in 1924 and has been a dominant force in the Skipton Body Repair Centre Craven League.

They won the league title four times in the past six seasons and completed the league and Craven Cup double just 12 months ago.
