Wharfedale’s senior Colts team has won the Yorkshire Premier league, so many congratulations to all involved in keeping up the standard of recent seasons. Not only that but next Sunday (1 February) they play in the round of 32 in the National Colts Plate competition, when their opponents will be Selby. Kick-off is at 1:00 pm.
As Yorkshire champions, the Colts now play in the annual ‘Cock of the North’ competition, which will be played at Wharfedale on Sunday 12 May. More details to follow.
In the meantime, Wharfedale players featured prominently in the Yorkshire Under 20 side which beat Northumberland 39-18 to qualify for the Quarter Final of the County Championship. Captain Josh Burridge was once again outstanding, scoring two tries, with three more from our former Colt Rob Rekis.
Reports of the matches for the 1st XV, the Foresters and the 4th XV are now available under the fixtures tab near the top of this page,
