Our Communities Award 2019: Contribution to Sport and Play Award – WINNER ANNOUNCED!

WINNER: St Columbas JFC

St Columbas Junior Football Club is open for all children and the costs are deliberately kept as low as possible to encourage enjoyment, sporting opportunity and community involvement.

This year has been epic – U15’s team have won their League as have U12’s. U11’s team got to the Cup Final in Rothwell at FA headquarters and only lost at penalties having held a draw in the match. U10’s have also attended a tournament in Blackpool as a team in May.

All the managers are volunteers and the parents are very supportive and also give
loads of time to support the club.

The club is an amazing example of grassroots football and should rightly celebrate
how much the children enjoy their weekend training and matches.

The club has players that have managed to secure additional training with York City
and secured Football Diploma’s post 16 with Brighouse Town FC.

This award is the icing on the cake to celebrate a fantastic 2018/2019 season.
