The Peterborough Sunday Morning League have initiated a survey of all their member clubs in a bid to arrest the decline in standard and in team numbers within the competition.

Seven teams have announced their intention to withdraw from the league at the end of the current campaign.

Six new teams have applied to join the league for the 2015-16 season, but numbers are well down on previous seasons.

There are only six teams currently competing in the Premier Division and two of those - ICA Sports and Premier Decorators - are understood to be withdrawing.

The League will therefore need plenty of reconstruction over the summer.

League chairman Fred Johnson said: “Sunday morning football has been in decline for some years. I want the clubs to help it flourish again.”

Among the questions clubs have been asked to answer are ones regarding the standard of refereeing, matchday costs and pitches.
