Ainslie, Callum and Max stand out in the Under 11s season
Our under 11s celebrated their wonderful first season, with Ainslie Bell taking the Managers Player of the Year, and Max Bisset taking the Most Improved Player and the Parents Player of the Year. For the Players' Player of the year award, 'keeper Callum Freckleton edged out Matthew Wheatley and Adam Hellas to take home the gong.

U11s run champions close
Our under 11s brought the curtain down on a memorable first season with a narrow 3-2 defeat away at joint champions Kirkstall Crusaders. Goals from Max Bisset and Shay Glucksman weren't quite enough to defeat the team who had beaten them 5-0 earlier in the season. Whinmoor were denied a deserved point when a free kick came back off the suspiciously v-shaped crossbar!

U15s Complete the perfect season
Our under 15s were finally able to put the cherry on their season's cake with a 7-1 mauling of Killinghall Nomads, the complete their blemish-free season, and to top 100 goals this term. Well done to Clem and the lads.

U11s receive league accolade
Our under 11s have received official recognition for their excellent first season by being named Garforth Junior Leagues "Most Improved Team". Their fourth place finish was deemed worthy to invite them to Batley Variety Club later this month to a glittering and probably star-studded event, where they will be receiving their richly deserved award.

U16s finish successful season in style
Our Under 16s put last weeks disappointment behind them as they swept Cookridge aside in their last match of the season. Jamie Allen scored twice, and Harry Uttley, Josh Whiteman, Josh Clarke, Joe Cairns and Eddie Robinson all found the net as Whinmoor ran out 7-1 winners. After the match, the players were presented with the League trophy - there are new pictures on the Gallery page.

U11s in City Stalemate
Our under 11s put in a superb performance to hold high-flyers Leeds City Juniors to a 1-1 draw. Orlando Smith scored the Whinmoor goal, and Callum Freckleton had a superb game between the sticks to keep out their hosts.

U11s thrash Amaranth
Our under 11s scored a fine win away at Amaranth. Two goals from Orlando Smith, and one each for Ben Ireland, Jack Fordham and Ben Vickers gave Whinmoor an excellent 5-1 victory, and saw them consolidate fourth place.

U16s slip up at Guiseley
After clinching the title last week, it was a case of 'after the Lord Mayors Show' for Whinmoors under 16s as they fell to their first league defeat of the season. After falling behind in the first half, goals either side of half time from Jamie Allen and Harry Uttley gave Whinmoor the lead, but they allowed their hosts back in to clinch the win.

U15s denied the perfect season
Our under 15s were prevented from recording a perfect season when Killinghall were unable to field a team for the last fixture of the season. Although the title was wrapped up weeks ago, manager Clem Bartley is disappointed that his men weren't given the opportunity to complete their 100% season. However, he should be very proud of the performances they have put in over the season, and their record bodes very well for the future!
