If you’ve been down Appleton Road recently and glimpsed a crowd of enthusiastic supporters on Moor Lane shouting encouragement to some equally enthusiastic footballers, then you were probably seeing a bit of what the Bishopthorpe White Rose Junior Football Club gets up to on a regular basis.
The club fields boys, girls, and mixed teams, and has strong relationships with the Infants and Junior schools in the village.
New players and supporters are always welcome; if you’d like to find out a bit more about the club and what it does, take a look at the official website:- http://bishopthorpewhiterosefc.btck.co.uk/
And if you know someone who might fancy a game, or just wants to check out what it’s all about, then take them along and show them how good it is!
