28 Jun - Euro Lucky Seven: Day Sixteen

Boroughbridge AFCDay Sixteen was one of shocks at Euro 2016, if our Lucky Seven's predictions are anything to go by that is. Just four points were scored collectively by the seven across the day's two games, with Steven Green and Joshua Price the only ones to correctly predict Italy to knock out Spain and nobody predicting an Icelandic victory. The results serve to tighten the table up with just ten points separating first from seventh as the competition progresses to the Quarter-Finals and the points available increase once again. View the full table to see where you stand.
27 Jun - Euro Lucky Seven: Day Fifteen

Boroughbridge AFCThere were points all round of Day Fifteen of the Euro Lucky Seven with advances made by those able to nail their scoreline predictions. Doing just that was James Ekin who jumped to fourth, five off the lead, after correctly predicting the scorelines of both France's win over Ireland and Germany's win over Slovakia. At the top of the table it's still Clive Ekin in control by two points from Jon Walker who moves up to second with Carl Allen dropping to third, four points off the pace. View the full table to see where you stand.
Boroughbridge AFC26 Jun - England v Iceland Live

Following the showing of all three England group games live, Aldborough Road will once again be open for Monday's Round of Sixteen tie against Iceland. Doors will open at 7 p.m. tomorrow ahead of the 8 p.m. kick-off with beer once again just £2 a pint as all profits raised continue to go towards ongoing improvement works at Aldborough Road.
26 Jun - Euro Lucky Seven: Day Fourteen

Boroughbridge AFCCarl Allen was the big mover on the first day of Euro 2016 knockout games, notching eight points to move into a tie for second having made it into the top seven on goal difference. There's also a new leader atop the table with Clive Ekin returning to the summit opening up a two point lead. Jon Walker drops into the tie for second with Allen whilst Paul Seldon and Steven Green are four points back in a tie for fourth. View the full table to see where you stand.
24 Jun - Euro Lucky Seven: Day Thirteen

Boroughbridge AFCAs the group stages of the Euro Lucky Seven draws to a close there's a new leader atop the table and a four-way goal difference tie breaker to decide the Lucky Seven who advance to the knockout stages of the tournament. After a score of six on the final day of game, Jon Walker is the new name atop the table whilst Carl Allen, Joshua Price and Paul Seldon all advance thanks to their goal difference with Ali Ekin just missing out. The final day's games brought slim pickings with just 124 points scored by all competitors across all games, a figure inflated by 76 points scored thanks to Belgium's victory over Sweden. In total the group stages has seen over 2,500 points scored with an average of 21 points per competitor. View the full table to see where you stand.
23 Jun - Euro Lucky Seven: The Lucky Seven

Boroughbridge AFCWith the group stages of Euro 2016 now complete, congratulations to our Lucky Seven who will now go on to fight it out for the prize monies over the knockout stages of the tournament. Jon Walker, Clive Ekin, Steven Green, James Ekin, Carl Allen, Joshua Price and Paul Seldon make up the Seven, who should return their predictions for the Round of 16 matches to the organisers by 1pm on Saturday 25th June. The full final table following the group stages will be published very soon.
22 Jun - Euro Lucky Seven: Day Twelve

Boroughbridge AFCOn the first of two days that will set the Lucky Seven at Euro 2016 there were points aplenty, but with the scoring fairly evenly distributed no bigger movers on the day. David Ekin was top scorer on the day with seven followed by Josh Herron, Thomas Yucebiyik and Scott Barnes with five, enough to boost Josh into one of the Lucky Seven positions and Thomas onto the cusp of them. With 108, 65, 6 and 40 points respectively scored across the day's four games, Croatia's win over Spain proved the hardest to predict. With twelve points up for grabs on the final day of group games any of the top 101 competitors are still in with a chance of making the Lucky Seven. View the full table to see where you stand.
Boroughbridge AFC21 Jun - Pre-Season Training

With Euro 2016 edging towards the knockout stages thoughts will soon begin to turn towards the new season, and the commencement of pre-season training is now less than a fortnight away.

21 Jun - Euro Lucky Seven: Day Eleven

Boroughbridge AFCThe points drought continues for a second straight day for those up and down the Euro Lucky Seven leaderboard as the competition gears up for eight games in the space of two days to set the Lucky Seven positions. Such was the lack of availability of points on Day Eleven that Cornelius Buttercup III was the only person to notch a correct scoreline with just two competitors picking up two points from the day's games. All of it means that it's still very much as you were in the standings, although with 25 points the current benchmark for the Lucky Seven and 24 points still available over the next two days everyone is still very much in the hunt. View the full table to see where you stand.
20 Jun - Euro Lucky Seven: Day Ten

Boroughbridge AFCAfter days of points for all it was an entirely different story on Day Ten of the Euro Lucky Seven with only four correctly predicted scorelines in total across the day's two games. France's draw with Switzerland proved marginally easier to predict, but that was only due to Albania's win over Romania yielded just twelve points collectively across all 118 competitors. All that means very little change at the top but big movement for those who did get their predictions spot on, with Joshua Price climbing onto the cusp of the top three and Ali Ekin up onto the edge of the Lucky Seven places.

19 Jun - Frank Dennison

Boroughbridge AFC send their condolences to Pat and the family of Mr Frank Dennison who died in the early hours of the 16th June. Frank has been a well known figure in the Harrogate football circles for many years through his involvement with Hampsthwaite Football Club and as a committee member of the Harrogate & District AFL committee.
19 Jun - Euro Lucky Seven: Day Nine

Boroughbridge AFCAs the games keep coming thick and fast at Euro 2016 so do the points in the Euro Lucky Seven with another 227 added to the collective totals on Day Nine. Clive Ekin maintains his three point gap atop the table but the lead is now from Steven Green with John Walker dropping a place to third. Whilst the day's first two games yielded high points, with 117 and 91 collectively scored respectively, the day's final game proved much hard to predict with just Cornelius Buttercup III correctly predicting Portugal and Austria to play out a nil nil draw.

Boroughbridge AFC18 Jun - Three Lions Hat-Trick

Following the first two England games of Euro 2016 being shown live, Monday will see a hat-trick of Three Lions games on the big screens at Aldborough Road completed.

18 Jun - Euro Lucky Seven: Day Eight

Boroughbridge AFCPoints, points and more points was the story on Day Eight of the Euro Lucky Seven as almost all competitors added to their totals in some way and eleven came within two points of a perfect day. It's still Clive Ekin out front with the lead up to three over John Walker in second ahead of a two-way tie for third between Carl Allen and Steven Green. All three games yesterday saw over 100 points scored with the day's finale between Spain and Turkey scoring competitors a combined 147 points.

17 Jun - Euro Lucky Seven: Day Seven

Boroughbridge AFCThe Donohoe dominance atop the Euro Lucky Seven table lasted but two days with Clive Ekin surging to the fore as the group stages reach their half way marker. Yesterday's first game between England and Wales proved rich pickings with 154 points scored by the 118 entrants. The days other games were much harder to predict, however, with just 43 points added to the tallies across both games combined. Daniel Sturridge's injury time winner vaulted Ekin into a two point lead over Donohoe with John Walker in third a point further back followed by a three-way tie for fourth. View the full table to see where you stand.
16 Jun - Euro Lucky Seven: Day Six

Boroughbridge AFCFor the first time in the championships the Euro Lucky Seven table has the same name at the top for consecutive days as the top two open out a lead over the chasing pack. Richard Donohoe still leads by a point from Clive Ekin but it's now three points back to Carl Allen and David Hutchinson in a tie for third. France's victory over Albania proved easiest to predict with 125 cumulative points scored, closely followed by Romania's draw with Switzerland on 99 points. Just 25 points were notched thanks to Slovakia's win over Russia, however. View the full table to see where you stand.

11 Jun - Euro Lucky Seven: Day One

Boroughbridge AFCAs Euro 2016 got underway in Paris last night, so did our Euro Lucky Seven special with a bumper entry once more this time out.
