We are delighted to announce that we now have an official agreement with Middlesbrough Football club! The partnership agreement will see Middlesbrough FC get first refusal on our elite players, there will be other opportunities such as match day experiences for all of our players with further details to follow soon.

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”.

We lose together, we win together, we fight together.

Day 1 - Barcelona Cup.

Our 2007 Boys found it very tough in energy sapping conditions.

We started slowly and didn’t really recover.

The lads lost all 3 group games.

We finished the last group game very strongly and we are hoping the lads can build on that on Day 2 as we enter the C cup.

Most of our boys are 2008 birthday so a lot of the players are physically bigger and stringer so this is a great learning curve for our lads.

Our 2005 Boys again we’re slow starters but once we found our feet we finished really strongly. We finished the group in second place on 6 points.

The boys will be looking to improve on their disciplinary record on day 2 👀

The 2005 group go into the B finals today.

Good luck to all the players.
