The Axminster Hospital Cup is set to be reduced in size for the foreseeable future.

The competition committee met last week and announced after the meeting that they have decided that, due to the uncertain future of the local hospital, the competition will be scaled back.

Adam Cowling, a member of the cup committee says: “Whilst the hospital remains open in a Day case capacity, the beds have now been closed. While we review the situation of how we raise money and who we support with the money we raise, we will be reducing the size of the competition.

“We wish the cup to run in the tradition that it has since 1930. This year the committee would like to run with four teams invited into the cup and play under floodlights at Tiger Way, Axminster.

This current season we will run two semi-finals and a final. We would like to encourage people to support the competition this year as it has been in previous years. As the future of the hospital becomes clearer or the causes we raise monies for become our focus, so we hope the competition will open up to a larger competition as it has been previously.
