"We are delighted to win this award and would like to thank North Riding FA for its invaluable support with the club's development. The club has grown massively over the past few years and is an important part of the local community in Bishopthorpe and beyond. We have many volunteers who put in a lot of hard work to make the club what it is and we are blessed with enthusiastic boys and girls who love their football. We now want to raise funds to build our own set of pitches and clubhouse so we have a home for our club."
