Europa League Champions!

Ilkley Primary - boys football

On Friday afternoon, Ghyll Royd’s U11 boys’ football team went to Ben Rhydding for the last leg of the Europa League tournament. The Europa League is the second-tier of the Astro Football League.

First Ghyll Royd faced Menston Primary and won their match 1-0. Then the Ghyll Royd boys faced Addingham Primary School. The team were showing no signs of stopping and won their second match of the day 2-0.

Then it was on to a winner takes all finale where Ghyll Royd played Burley Oaks. The boys worked hard and their dedication to the tournament paid off with a final score of 2-0.
