Statement in York Press - Friday 24th April 2020.

THREE foottball clubs in York will join together to form into one from next season.

Huntington Rovers, Huntington FC and Heworth AFC will become Huntington Rovers in the 2020/21 season and they hope to have an array of junior sides competing in the York and District Youth League.

In a statement, Huntington Rovers said: “We are excited to let everyone know that Huntington Rovers, Heworth AFC and Huntington FC will, from the 2020/21 season, all combine resources to play as Huntington Rovers Football Club.

“The decision has been made by the various committees and as the 2019/20 season has now unfortunately finished early the changes come into play with immediate effect.

“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 (Under-7s to Under-16s.)

“We are also hoping to retain our U19s team and our open age woman’s team as well as 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 two 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.”
