Sedbergh & Dent United FC

When the curtain came down on the 2018/19 Westmorland League season, Sedbergh Wanderers FC and Dent FC merged together to become Sedbergh & Dent United.
A club statement says: “this is something that has long been talked about and has been discussed at great lengths many times, however both clubs now feel that the time is right to join forces and create a bigger, better and sustainable environment for football in our area.”
Sedbergh & Dent United will be entering three teams into the Westmorland League for the new 2019/20 season which will enable football for all abilities across the three divisions. It is hoped that the new club will be able to compete on a higher level than currently possible and will ensure football is continued to be played in this area for many years to come.
The club statement finishes by saying, “this has not been a decision taken lightly or easily. A great deal of thought and work has gone into the merger so far. All we ask is for the communities’ continued support. With the backing of everyone we know we can make this a real success.
Forthcoming fixtures to be played at Dent are:

Saturday 17th August 2:30. Sedbergh & Dent Utd ‘A’ v Langwathby Utd
