Leyburn Utd men's senior team.

A men’s football team is looking to sign new players.

Leyburn Utd FC men’s senior team has just finished its first season playing in the Scvotts for Storage Wensleydale League.

Manager Shane Close said: “After a first successful season with a young squad straight out of grassroots junior football, we’re now looking to recruit a couple more players to add to our talented squad.

“We’ve competed against the top teams in the league — finishing fourth above a couple of big clubs was a huge success.

“We now look to grow again next season and look to be able to compete once more.”

Prospective players are invited to attend training which starts on Monday, June 17 from 6.30pm to 7.45pm at The Wensleydale School.

Shane thanked the main kit sponsors for their support during the first including, including YIBS, Leyburn Fire Station, the Biekr Group and DJ Avo.

The club plans to offer local businesses the chance to sponsor individual players next season at £25 per player.

The senior presentation night will be held this Saturday at the Boltom Arms in Leyburn.
