KEEP IT UP! Tadcaster Albion double bill

The people behind the scenes at a football club often get overlooked, but in the latest instalment of the keepy uppy challenge, two unsung heroes of Tadcaster Albion’s 23-match unbeaten run take on the tennis ball.

Up first was coach Si Collins before boss Paul Marshall’s son Charlie, the team’s mascot, tried to clock up the kick-ups.

Watch the video above to find out how they got on.

Harrogate Town’s Leigh Franks remains at the top of the leaderboard. But with several more clubs still to film, could you beat him?
