12th October - round-up
Our Under 11s continued their improvement by avenging their defeat against Tingley with an emphatic 7-2 victory.
After giving themselves a mountain to climb by conceding in the first two minutes against a strong Pannal Ash side, our Under 16s were always chasing the game, eventually falling to a 2-0 defeat.

One of our very own - James Turner, who has played and managed for our club over the years - has accepted a job in the USA, spreading the good word of 'Soccer' over there. The club wants to express its thanks and admiration for a young man who has done nothing but good for our club, and he goes with all our very best wishes.
Unfortunately, this means that Whizz-Kidz has been left without a leader, as we haven't found anybody good enough to fill James' very large boots. So, therefore, we regret to announce that Whinmoor Whizz-Kidz is going into hibernation for the winter. We hope to re-start in the spring, so watch this space....

More bad news, I'm afraid. For a number of reasons, it has been decided that our Under 15s will withdraw from the league with immediate effect.

In a novel experiment, our Under 11s side was picked by the players. They obviously have more about them than the grown ups, as they beat Osset 9-0 to notch their first win of the season!
