Hard Work Behind The Scenes Pays Off

We are very pleased to announce that after of months of hard work making sure that our Community Status Annual Health Check is up-to-date and correct, we have been awarded our FA Charter Standard Community Status Award for 2016 - 2017 and we will receive our certificate shortly.

Chairman Angus Taylor and the rest of the board wish to say a big thank you to all that have helped with this achievement and especially to secretary Claire Stubbs who has worked tirelessly alongside the County FA to make sure that we achieved this status.

Great work everyone.



On Saturday morning a dedicated team of coaches and parents braved the rain to start the big clean up of the Ings and the MUGA.

Dozens of sacks of sticks, branches and other rubbish were removed, along with whole trees and wrecked goalposts, though we had to admit defeat when it came to the 1 tonne hay bales.

We're also really grateful to Wetherby Fire Brigade who, despite working 24/7 over the last few weeks, were able to come down at short notice and hose down the MUGA, removing all the silt and grime that elbow grease alone were never going to shift.  By the end of the morning the MUGA surface looked as good as new.

Thanks very much everyone who helped out, the bacon sandwiches were well earned.



World Cup Stars Meet Wetherby Girls

World Cup Stars Inspire Wetherby Girls.
It's not everyday that you meet 5 international football stars, but that's what happened to three Wetherby Girls u16 footballers when they were guests of Doncaster Rovers Belles this week. The  Belles took on Manchester City Women in the Continental Cup cheered on by the Wetherby girls. Manchester City boasted 5 international players including England Captain Steph Houghton, goalkeeper Karen Bardsley and World Cup super goal hero Lucy Bronze.
"We enjoyed the game, but it was also great to meet the England stars and players from both teams after the match. Such a friendly atmosphere " said super striker Lisa Clarke. 
Wetherby defender Charlotte Hawksworth was very pleased " We were really happy that the players,including some of the World Cup stars, took so much time to talk to us, sign autographs and take pictures".
"Steph, Lucy and team mates are certainly doing their best to inspire the next generation of women footballers and build on the World Cup success. We were so impressed by them" said midfield dynamo Jess Walker. 
" We were delighted to welcome the Wetherby U16 girls to the Keepmoat" said Mark Donnelly of Doncaster Rovers Belles " we are so pleased they enjoyed the match and meeting the players after the game. We are always keen to welcome local teams to watch the Belles in action".
