Minors look for major players
11:59am Thursday 12th September 2013 in Sport
Craven Minors, are looking for talented players who are interested in playing representative football.
James Smith, the new manager of the Craven District Football Association’s under-17 side, is recruiting players for this season’s West Riding County FA Minor Cup campaign.
To be eligible for consideration, the players have to have been under 17 years on August 31, and must play for a club within the Craven area which stretches from Cononley in the East to Waddington in the West and as far North as Sedbergh.
After great work by retiring manager Mark McGlincy, and his assistant Paul Hunt, Minor Secretary Ian Longden is hopeful that new manager Smith will enjoy success.
Longden said: “The Craven FA would like to thank Mark and Paul for their efforts, and we welcome James on board.
“Putting together a squad is always an arduous task, but we should welcome back some of the lads from last year’s young side and I’m sure others will want to have a go.
“We have some great games in prospect, entertaining Barkston Ash and Bradford at home, and visiting Leeds and Wharfedale.
The first game against Barkston Ash is scheduled for Sunday, September 29 so we would urge any interested player to come along to our training sessions.”
Training is held each Wednesday, at Sandylands all-weather facility 8-0pm. For more details contact Ian on 07871433280.
