YCST to sponsor local Junior Football League

Building Trust between Community & Club

The Supporters' Trust and York City are furthering their links with local youth football by providing sponsorship to the Ryedale Junior League for the next two seasons.

Graham Kilby, a Trust board member and who also heads City's Youth Development Fund, welcomed the alliance between the Club, the Trust and the local league:
"The alliance will help build a better relationship between the Club and junior leagues in the region. It is another way to promote the Club to youngsters - the future supporters of York City."

The provision of a kit and sponsorship money will be used by the RJL to form a representative side which will then play against similar teams in the region.

The RJL was formed in 1979 and this is the first time it has had a sponsor. The league consists of 32 under-11 teams playing in three divisions covering an area from Pickering in the north down to Selby in the south.

This latest initiative is another example of the Supporters' Trust fulfilling its community objectives, with a particular emphasis on promoting football and the Club to young people in the region.

Barry Hood, from the RJL, welcomed the link-up with the Supporters' Trust:
"It's great to be involved with our local professional Club and the Supporters' Trust and we hope that we can help build greater support for York City."
