A new addition to our youth system for the 2019/20 season is our U21 team, who will compete in the West Riding FA U23 Development League.
The U21 side was created to provide a pathway for players moving up from the U17's and second year Youth Alliance students who were not quite ready to make the move up to the U23's squad, but with another year of development and playing in a highly competitive league against good quality opposition they will be in a position to be knocking on the door of Josh Falkingham's successful U23's side.
Our U21 side is managed by Paul Barker, a coach with experience at many junior sides in the local area and Garforth League. Paul has had spells at Knaresborough Town and Harrogate Railway and is also a coach at Harrogate and Craven Schools FA U15's.
In their first season, which was brought to an early end in March 2020, our U21s finished in a respectable ninth position in their first season.
