Huntington FC Club Person of the Year 2019/20
It is with great pleasure that we can announce that the last ever winner of Huntington FC's club person of the year award for the 2019/20 season is Jason Bryan.
Jason is one of our most passionate junior coaches at the club. Over the last season he has been the driving force for grant applications to improve the playing surfaces at our hopgrove facility, the designer of the new Huntington Rovers FC website and new club badge as well of many other initiatives, that unfortunately due to Covid-19 never got off the ground this time around. All this whilst coaching last seasons under 9s!!!
Jason is a doer and when he gets an idea in his head he will drive and push it to the best of his abilities to get it over the line for the benefit of the club.
The extra work jason has put in to Huntington FC over the last year has been phenomenal and this award is a small token of our appreciation.
Below is a set of rules that will enable Huntington Rovers FC teams to use the Hopgrove Playing Fields for small group training sessions as per government and Fa guidelines. All coaches and participants MUST read and agree to these rules before sessions take place.
The waiver form accompanies these rules which all participants (or parents of participants.) Will need to read and sign.
We are hoping that it will be a live document that will get updated as and when restrictions are lifted to get back to a more "normal" session in the not to distant future.
Sanitary products required will be provided by Huntington Rovers FC. This will be funded by way of a 50p per participant for a training group session consisting of 5 players plus a coach. This will enable Huntington Rovers FC to keep the supplies topped up on a regular basis.
The waiver would need to be signed prior to sessions taking place by all coaches and participants in the session.
For training session timings details and any other queries please contact the relevant Team Manager
*note this is for teams that use the Hopgrove Playing Fields for training and not Huntington Sports Club. No arrangements are in place for this venue yet. Please await further details or contact you Team Manager.
For the 2020/21 season Huntington Rovers, Heworth AFC and Huntington FC combined resources to play as Huntington Rovers Football club. This will mean that Huntington Rovers Football Club will hopefully have a full compliment of junior teams in every age group of the York and District Youth Football League (u7s-U16’s.) With teams playing U19’s team as well as our open age woman’s team and the open age men’s and men’s reserves teams.
Our main objective is to give junior players from our local community a clear route into adult football.
Along with this objective we also want the football club to be a hub for the local community. We are determined to get behind more local events than ever before and put Huntington Rovers at the forefront of the local community.
We are fortunate to have use of 2 amazing facilities in the Sports and Social Club on North Lane and the Hopgrove playing fields on Malton Road and we aim to maximise the use of these facilities to benefit our community through football and social events.
More information will be published in due course and we are planning on having a fun day at the sports club to formally announce the changes once restrictions are lifted, but for now stay safe and football in Huntington will be back bigger and better then ever before as soon as it is possible.
A highly successful FA sanctioned event was held on 13th June 2021. A u7 tournament was run involving 16 teams and around 140 players at the Hopgrove Playing Fields. The teams taking part came from: Hamilton Panthers, Strensall, Haxby, Fulford, Stamford Bridge, Dunnington, Copmanthorpe, Wigginton Grasshoppers and of course Huntington Rovers.
A big thank you to Mark Shields, the Chairman for organising this successful event as well as to all coaches and helpers at Rovers who helped out on the day. A big thank you also to the 4 officials, players/coaches and parents/guardians of the teams who took part which made for a fun, respectful day.
Further events will be planned and updates will be provided here when know.
