17 Feb - Results: 'Bridge Exit Hulme Cup

Boroughbridge AFC notched a ninth league victory of the season this afternoon but it was a contrasting story in the Hulme Cup Quarter-Finals as the club's representation in the competition came to an end.

It was a similarly high scoring day in the Alliance Division Two with Hampsthwaite United Reserves this time taking the highest scorer honours, hitting seven for reply of one against Howden Clough Reserves. Atop the table Whitkirk Wanderers Reserves missed out on the chance to move back into first as they fell to defeat at Sherburn White Rose Reserves whilst third- and fourth-placed sides Kirk Deighton Rangers Reserves and Huddersfield YM Reserves both won to keep the pressure on.

9 Feb - Reed Boardall Continues Partnership

Boroughbridge AFCBoroughbridge AFC are thrilled to announce an extension to the club's long-standing partnership with Reed Boardall Group, one of the largest temperature controlled food distribution businesses in the UK. As part of the new two-year deal, the Reed Boardall name will feature on a new change strip for the club which was formally presented ahead of last Saturday's home fixture against Wetherby Athletic.

Serving leading retailers and food manufacturers throughout the UK, Reed Boardall is a well-recognised and respected name in the cold storage and transport sector. A family-run business with a 25 year heritage, it is known for storing and delivering frozen food from large and small manufacturers across Britain, Europe and further afield to all the UK's best-known supermarkets.

With a single, 55-acre site based on the outskirts of town, Reed Boardall's partnership with Boroughbridge AFC stretches over two decades with the company's predecessors, Wilsons Transport, also having supported the club. Reed Boardall's name has adorned many a 'Bridge kit in that time and the company's advertising board has been a constant presence looking onto the Aldborough Road playing surface.

Speaking at the presentation of the new kit, Reed Boardall Group Operations Manager, Stevland Town, said: "Reed Boardall has always been committed to supporting the local community and we have enjoyed a long relationship with Boroughbridge AFC. As one of the largest employers in the area, we have had many Boroughbridge AFC players working for us over the years and we are very happy to once again be supporting the club which is also an important hub for the local community."

Discussing the latest chapter in the club's partnership with the company, Boroughbridge AFC Chairman, Ian Paffett, said: "We've had links with Reed Boardall Group for many years, but this new deal takes the partnership to new heights and is a very exciting one for the club. We are very grateful to Reed Boardall Group for their continued support and for showing that local businesses and local clubs can still work together for mutual benefit."

Pictured below is the Boroughbridge AFC squad in their new kit with Reed Boardall Group's Stevland Town, and 'Bridge captain, Dave Millea, modelling the new change kit.

The other tie also saw a lower ranked side take all three points as Hall Green United Reserves made it four wins in their last six with a four two result at Hampsthwaite United Reserves. 'Bridge's defeat at Beckwithshaw Saints Reserves was the only game ot survive in the Harrogate & District League Division One whilst it was also a cup weekend in the West Riding County Women's League with Ripon City Ladies progressing in League Cup action and Ossett Town Women Development going through in the League Shield.

Just one game to go ahead in the West Riding County Women's League Second Division, finally, which saw Skipton Town Ladies remain third with their win over 'Bridge.
