WARLINGHAM chairman Steve Rolfe has confirmed the club are considering leaving the Combined Counties League.

The club, who currently ground-share at Whyteleafe's Church Road stadium, are weighing up the possibility of leaving Division One of the Combined Counties League and volunteering to drop into the Surrey Elite League.

The move would see Warlingham drop out of senior football but would pave the way for the club to move back into Warlingham village. And Rolfe is hoping the board can come to a decision by the end of the week.

"Those discussions are ongoing. Going into the Elite League is a possibility and staying in the Combined Counties is a possibility, everything is a possibility," Rolfe said. "If we did go into the Elite League it would be so we don't have to ground-share and occur the financial issues that comes with."

Should Warlingham decide to move back to their namesake Tandridge village they would then have to decide where to play, with both Warlingham Sports Club's Church Lane facilities and Verdayne Gardens a possibility.

However, that is not the only change at Warlingham ahead as Rolfe prepares to step down as chairman next month.

"That is one rumour that is definitely true," he said. "I gave my notice in two years ago in fact. I told the club I would be standing down after the end of this season and I will official step down at the AGM in June.

"I haven't fallen out of love with football or Warlingham and I will still be the treasurer of the football club and vice-chairman of the sports club. We are just waiting to see who is going to be the next chairman."
