NORTH RIDING FA CLUB OF THE YEAR

York RI AFC are extremely proud to be awarded Club of the Year 2020/21 by North Riding FA.

As part of winning the award, we received two tickets to the Community Shield and Ben and Finn Patchesa were drawn out a hat of all our coaches and volunteers and had a great day out at Wembley. Thank you to all our coaches, committee and fabulous players and parents - this award belongs to you all.
