AFC Ludlow have folded due to "lack of commitment" from players, says manager Dave Cooper.

The Shropshire side finished third in West Midlands (Regional) League Division One last season.

But a number of players did not want to remain at the Showtime Stadium for the 2016/17 campaign, meaning the club had no option but to call it a day.

"It's a sad day that Ludlow cannot produce a side," said Cooper.

An Under-17 side will be run in Herefordshire League Division One.
