STATEMENT: Gala Day cancelled, juniors sought for new date

Whitby Town Gala Day, originally scheduled for Sunday 29th July, is CANCELLED and will now take place on Sunday 19th August instead.

This hard decision has been made after following both rain and wind predictions for tomorrow and speaking to our safety advisor and the professionals that are providing sound and attractions.

Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. Please attend on 19th August.

Pete Graham.

Meanwhile, the club are looking for junior sides for the Gala Day. WTFC is running three age groups- under 7s (minimum age 5), under 9s and under 11s. All age groups as of the 2017/18 season.

Under 7s will play in the morning, whilst the under 9 and under 11 groups will compete in an afternoon session.

It’s free to enter a team, and there will be a World Cup theme, with each side being allocated a country.

However, only two players registered with the Teesside Junior Football Alliance (TJFA) can play in any one team, with the emphasis being on local juniors having fun.

All teams must provide a suitable adult with current FA CRB certificate to supervise the team whilst playing, and children must be accompanied by a responsible adult for supervision at all other times.

All children will receive a medal for taking part, with a trophy for each player in the winning teams, which have been kindly sponsored by Abbey Wharf and The George Hotel.

For more information and team entries, please email wtfcgaladay-soccer@hotmail.com, along with the name of the person supervising the team holding a current FA CRB certificate.

If you would like to enter a team, but are unable to find someone with a current certificate, please let the club know on the above address, as they have volunteers suitably qualified.
