U12’s Win Challenge Cup Tie

Challenge Cup Tie – Woodkirk Valley FC vs Carlton & Rothwell Giants – Friday 1st April 2016 A 1-0 against Carlton was good enough to see Woodkirk progress to the next round of the cup. Following a goalless first half it was left to Sam to secure the win for Woodkrik after latching on to a delightful through-ball from Haydn.  Sam held his nerve and slotted calmly past the keeper….


Clean Sheet for U12 Sharks

Woodkirk Vallley vs Whinmoor JFC – Sunday 20th March 2016 Surely this is what junior football is all about – sunny mornings with young lads enjoying the game.  Unfortunately with under 5 minutes of the game played everyone’s attentions were reserved for the Whinmoor goalkeeper who appeared to faint in his 6 yard area.  Thanks to some quick reactions from the spectators and referee the game was halted and the…


U12’s Complete Double Over Galaxy

Horsforth Galaxy vs Woodkirk Valley U12 (Sharks) – Sunday 13th March 2016 On a sunny (yes the sun was out!) morning Woodkirk’s U12s travelled to the playing field on Otley Old Road for an away fixture with Horsforth Galaxy.  In the home fixture back in November last year Woodkirk ran out 4-1 winners and after having another enforced lay last week due to the weather, the boys were chomping at…


U12’s Win at Home

As the song goes – there have been plenty of ‘ups and downs’ for our U12 Sharks so far this season.  After making a great start to the season the long lay off without any games due to the weather seemed to knock the boys out of their stride. Sunday 28th Feb saw Woodkirk take on Leeds City Juniors in their first home game since 22nd November 2015!  In all…


Narrow Win Against Local Rivals

Valentines Day for 2016 saw our U12’s make the short trip to Tingley for a lunch time KO against Tingley Athletic. (No jokes about ‘no love lost between the 2 teams’!) In what seemed like forever since their last victory the boys ran out 0-1 winners thanks to a controlled volley finish from Alex in the second half.  Woodkirk’s last two away games had resulted in two narrow losses, 1-0…


Mixed Fortunes for Under 9’s at Churwell

31/1/16 – Churwell U9s v Woodkirk U9s Chilly conditions greeted the teams on Sunday morning at Bruntcliffe High School’s All Weather facility, but everyone was glad to be playing football again after poor weather had caused several postponed games over recent weeks. Local rivals Churwell were our hosts for 2 friendly games. Game 1 – Jake (GK), Warren, Benny, Jack, Sam, Jenson, Harrison. (subs – Ethan, Ryan). Game 1 started promisingly for…
