Boroughbridge Business steps in to support local Junior Football Team

Boroughbridge Junior FC under 11s team has a new kit thanks to local business Rabbit Hill Country Store and Rural Supplies.

Rabbit Hill Country Store and Rural Supplies, based just off the A168, south of Boroughbridge, sells products needed for outdoor jobs – from farming consumables and animal feeds to workwear, maintenance products and planting.
The sponsorship deal sees the under 11s wear the company logo on their team kit. The team, which competes in the Nidderdale Junior League, has grown recently and now has a squad of 15 players drawn from Boroughbridge and surrounding villages.

Gemma Fisher, Rabbit Hill Country Store Manager, said:“We are delighted to support the team by sponsoring their kit. As a local company, with employees living and working in the area, we are pleased to lend our support to community activities. Sport is so important to young people, in terms of adopting a healthy lifestyle and creating social groups, so anything we can do to help is very rewarding.”

Chris Fahy, Boroughbridge Juniors FC chairman added: “Without the support of the community and sponsorship from companies like Rabbit Hill Country Store and Rural Supplies, we wouldn’t have such a thriving club. The lads look very smart in their new kit and will represent the town well when they play opponents across the district.”
The team is always open to new players and is recruiting players for the 2018/19 season. People interested in bringing their child to a training session can get in touch by contacting bjfc2014, via the club Facebook page or by visiting the club website.

Boroughbridge JFC is an FA Charter Standard club which means it provides a high-quality football experience with FA trained and vetted coaches. Games and training sessions take place at Boroughbridge High School and Boroughbridge AFC on Aldborough Road on Saturday and Sunday mornings, providing games and training for around 150 children from the town and surrounding villages. Boys and girls of all abilities from five to seventeen years are welcome and the club also runs an Ability for All (disability football) team.
