Caerphilly: Great for castles and cheese, not so much for ladies football
Early this week we brought you the story about Caerphilly Castle Ladies football team and how they made headlines for the wrong reasons after a record 43-0 loss at the weekend.
The team also lost 36-0, 28-0 and 26-0 in the space of 10 disastrous fixtures in the Women’s Welsh Premier League but the club insisted they were "putting a brave face on things."
However, they have now decided that enough is enough and have withdrawn from the league to concentrate of their youth teams.
"With regret, the club has decided to withdraw its membership from the Welsh Premier Women's League with immediate effect," they said in a statement.
"Caerphilly Castle is very proud of its tradition of nurturing young footballing talent over the years but the club has found it difficult to compete at the highest level of Welsh Women's Football this season.
"The committed officials of the club fully intend to continue their passion of developing players throughout the different age groups and hope to return to the Welsh Premier Women's League as soon as possible."
Their results in the league will now be wiped out from the records books.

Despite their terrible senior results, Caerphilly Castle are actually the second biggest women's club in Wales in terms of participation numbers.
They finished mid-table in the last two Welsh Premier League seasons, and in 2010 lifted the Welsh League Cup.
