We are trying to gain use of Brearley Playing Fields, and we believe without access the club and provision for football within our area will be permanently damaged. Click Here to view the full proposal.


Boys Teams move to the Huddersfield RCD Junior Football League

At a special club meeting last night, it was unanimously decided that all of our Boys teams will compete in the Huddersfield RCD Junior Football League with effect from next season (2015/16).  The reason for this decision is due to the dissolvement of the local Calderdale Junior Football League.

A copy of the minutes from the meeting can be found here: minutes

Good luck to all of our teams for next season and beyond in our new ventures.
