It’s another success for our junior section as last weekend saw the club host the West Riding CFA Gala for Under 7 & 8 girls (school years 1,2 & 3).
This gala was aimed at girls who play in either the Harrogate or West Riding Leagues and there was a great turn out, which was extremely pleasing to see.
Not only did the youngsters thoroughly enjoy themselves, but so did the many adults who had come to watch, with the general thought being that the event was extremely well run and a credit to the club.
Speaking about the event, Phil Wilkinson, who not only is a coach with multiple junior sides, but also helped to co-ordinate the day from the club’s end said “It was an incredibly successful day that shone a light on both Wetherby as a fantastic club, but also how successfully younger girl’s football is growing in Yorkshire. What was particularly nice for me was that local Harrogate based clubs were involved alongside the West Yorkshire ones, that and it was nice and sunny!”
Well done to all the players who took part but also big thanks to everyone that helped plan and deliver such a successful event. It goes a long way to promoting junior football in the area when people can see how professional our junior setup is.
