The under 13 Girls’ play in the Harrogate and District Junior Girls Football League and has a squad of 15 players drawn from Boroughbridge and surrounding towns. JA Services part-owner, Justin Sinclair, said: “As a football coach and the father of a daughter who loves playing football, I am delighted to have the opportunity to support the team and make sure they are one of the best turned out squads in the league.”

Chris Fahy, Boroughbridge Juniors FC chairman added: “There is no doubt that football is increasing in popularity among girls of all ages.

“The football club now has four girls’ teams aged from 8 to 13 years, but we are always keen to attract more players to the club.
