Due to lack of volunteers…a step 7 side has resigned from league

It’s becoming harder and harder in the lower regions of Non-league football with volunteers in short supply and this is just what Barron Hill have found out as they have had to resign from the Leicestershire Senior League Premier Division.

The club was established in the 1890s as St Peters Church. They were later named Bardon Hill Granite and then Bardon Hill Sports. After playing in local leagues around Coalville, the club moved up to the Leicester & District League and the North Leicestershire League. In 1994 they joined Division One of the Leicestershire Senior League. After finishing as Division One runners-up in 2005–06 the club were promoted to the Premier Division.

In 2008 Bardon Hill Sports were founder members of the East Midlands Counties League. They were renamed Bardon Hill in 2010. The club won both the Leicestershire and Rutland Senior Cup and the East Midlands Counties League in 2014–15,earning promotion to the Premier Division of the Midland League. However, their first season in the Midland League ended in relegation to the Premier Division of the Leicestershire Senior League.
