Poppleton JFC

After years of effort towards attaining planning permission, as well as fundraising, Poppleton Juniors and the North Riding County FA secured a grant of a £225,000 from the Foundation. The new facilities – opened last year by the Archbishop of York Dr John Sentamu – make the site unrecognisable from its dilapidated predecessor.

The four-changing room clubhouse includes meeting and training areas, as well as officials’ changing rooms and catering facilities.  

Megan, Club Captain, Poppleton Tigers Ladies Team said:

“We had fantastic pitches but lacked the facilities to go with it. The facilities now are the best in our league and we are grateful to the Foundation for their kind help in funding this project.”
