Kirkheaton Youth Football Club hosted its 3rd Annual Football Gala in early September to raise funds for the club and kick start the season. Teams travelled from all over West Yorkshire from as far and wide as Guiseley, Cumberworth and Meltham. Luckily the weather was kind and the Under 7’s and Under 8’s had the pleasure of an early Sunday morning kick off with the older age groups playing after lunch.

Over 40 teams took part, and thanks to their support and all the hard work of the volunteers the club raised over £2000, which will go towards providing facilities and equipment for Kirkheaton Youth Football.

Kirkheaton did have teams in various finals. However they didn’t pick up a trophy this year, but all the players went away happy after a great day of football.
