We are delighted to announce that we now have an official agreement with Middlesbrough Football club!

Head Coach Richard Darcy said “We are really pleased Boro have recognised that there are some fantastic footballers in North Yorkshire, we have some great kids in our programme and with this agreement these young footballers will get every opportunity to showcase their skills. The club have already taken several of our players into the academy and the recognition from the club opens the door for many others who are excelling within our sessions and games. I would personally like to thank Martin Carter and Craig Liddle for their time and effort in pursuing this for our players”.

🗣MFC Foundation Tournament!

Well Done to all the NYSA Boys who took part in the MFC tournament today at The Herlingshaw Centre.

U7/8/9 all battled well against high standard opposition.

Our U10 were beaten on penalties in the final by an excellent Improtech side.

All players represented NYSA impeccably showing great sportsmanship, determination and attitude throughout. The players tried to put into practice what we’ve been working on in training and that’s all we can ask as coaches.

Big thanks to MFC Foundation for a really well organised tournament.
