Football's Come Home

Saturday 8th August 2020

March 15th was the last time we saw any football at Grange Park. 146 days later, and thanks to a lot of hard work behind the scenes to ensure that all necessary measures in line with the FA guidance for restarting competitive football are in place, we are finally back on the football pitch. A warm summer's morning welcomed a number of our teams back to training, with more to follow in the coming weeks, and a return to competitive fixtures on the horizon.

Managers and coaches, players, parents and carers will have noticed some changes at Grange Park, with one-way systems, traffic cones and hand sanitiser dispensers in place. We ask you to please follow these precautions in the interest of everyone's safety and continued good health.

Welcome back everyone.

New players wanted

A couple of our teams are looking to add new players to their squads ahead of the 2020-21 season.

Our Under 9s team are looking for boys and girls who will be going into Year 4 in September and are interested in joining our team. We play in the Harrogate & Wharfedale Friendly League and train on Saturday mornings at 11am.  Please contact James Arthur on 07805 261070 for more details.

We welcome new players of all abilities in school year 12 to join our Under 17s squad. We train on Saturday morning at Grange Park and play competitive matches on Sunday mornings in the Harrogate and the Garforth leagues. If you are interested please email gawood69@outlook.com

All of our coaches are FA trained and DBS checked. We are a FA Charter Standard Club.

Papa John's Pizza Ad filmed at Grange Park 

Eagle eyed TV viewers may have noticed something familiar about the new Papa John's Pizza commercial. The ad was filmed at Grange Park in the autumn of 2019. If you look closely you may spot some of our players in the background.
