11 Jul - World Cup Lucky Seven: Day 23

Boroughbridge AFCThere were just twelve points added to the collective tallies of the Lucky Seven across the World Cup Semi-Finals. Nobody predicted England's clash with Croatia to go to extra time whilst only three predicted France to beat Belgium, one of which being Paul Lamb to pad his advantage to eight points atop the table. Phil Wix and Andrew Ritchie retain the prize money paying podium positions but with sixteen points potentially left to obtain any one of the top six are still in the hunt.

7 Jul - World Cup Lucky Seven: Day 21

Boroughbridge AFCWith just four games to go the World Cup Lucky Seven is still wide open, but after another bumper day Paul Lamb now have a four point advantage atop the table.

To see the standings take a look at the full table.
6 Jul - World Cup Lucky Seven: Day Twenty

Boroughbridge AFCThere's a new name atop the World Cup Lucky Seven table as the competition reaches the Quarter-Finals stage. Paul Lamb is that new leader after being the only person to predict a Belgian victory, coupled with a correct scoreline to net five points, with a bumper day completed by a further three points from the day's early game to take a one point lead atop the table. Phil Wix slips one point off the top whilst Andrew Ritchie completes the top three seven off the lead. To see the standings take a look at the full table.

2 Jul - World Cup Lucky Seven: Day Eighteen

Boroughbridge AFCAfter yesterday proved totally unpredictable it was the opposite scenario today with only one of the Lucky Seven not getting both outcomes correct. Phil Wix was the only person to notch a four point correct scoreline haul to move atop the table by three points from Paul Lamb with Andrew Ritchie two further back. To see the standings take a look at the full table.
1 Jul - World Cup Lucky Seven: Day Seventeen

Boroughbridge AFCOn paper it was an easy day to predict at the World Cup with all of the Lucky Seven going for wins for Spain and Croatia within 90 minutes. Deadlock in both matches, however, meant no points added and no change in the table with Paul Lamb still leading Phil Wix by a point and Andrew Ritchie three further back after 52 of 64 matches. To see the standings take a look at the full table.
1 Jul - Annual General Meeting

Boroughbridge AFC can confirm the Club's Annual General Meeting will take place on Monday 16th July.

30 Jun - World Cup Lucky Seven: Day Sixteen

Boroughbridge AFCThere may only have been two matches at the World Cup today but with increased points the gaps are already starting to open up between the Lucky Seven. Paul Lamb is now the man in charge atop the table after notching six points from the days games, followed by Phil Wix and Andrew Ritchie who both added four to their tallies after correctly predicting Uruguay's two one scoreline over Portugal. To see the standings take a look at the full table.
29 Jun - New Club Secretary Appointed

Andy will be an asset to the Club and is ready to hit the ground running.
28 Jun - World Cup Lucky Seven: Day Fifteen

Boroughbridge AFCThe last day of the group stages brought points a plenty and lots of movement in the World Cup Lucky Seven table, but with all 48 matches complete we now know the identities of the seven who will progress to compete for the title. A big thank you to all those who took part in the competition this year which has raised a fantastic £126 towards the continuing improvement works around Aldborough Road with the same amount in the prize pot which will be shared amongst the top three at the end of the tournament. The Lucky Seven have all been contacted and invited to submit their predictions for the Round of Sixteen ties. To see where you stand take a look at the full table.
27 Jun - World Cup Lucky Seven: Day Fourteen

Boroughbridge AFCThere's just four group stage games to go and the elimination line has begun to make its way up the table, but 91 competitors could still mathematically make it into the Lucky Seven and have a chance at the prize money. Andy Layton is now joined by Dave Bramley atop the table on 43 points whilst 39 is currently the marker to make it into the top seven after a day which saw points for many on one game and points for none on another. To see where you stand take a look at the full table.
26 Jun - World Cup Lucky Seven: Day Thirteen

Boroughbridge AFCThere were points a plenty for some as the countdown to the end of the group stages really hots up in the World Cup Lucky Seven, with big movements for those able to capitalise on late goals in both of the evening's Group D games. Atop the table Andy Layton is still three points clear, now from a trio in joint second with three more just a point further back making up the top seven with two days to the cut. To see where you stand take a look at the full table.
25 Jun - World Cup Lucky Seven: Day Twelve

Boroughbridge AFCOne extra game most certainly did not translate to extra points for the World Cup Lucky Seven hopefuls today with just 103 scored across the day's four games. The majority of those came on Uruguay's win over Russia but it was slim pickings elsewhere meaning missed opportunities and little change towards the top save for Dave Bramley moving into a tie for second, three points off the lead. To see where you stand take a look at the full table.
25 Jun - Pre-Season Training Starts Tonight

Don't forget that pre-season training commences for all the Club's squads tonight from 6.30pm to 8pm.

24 Jun - World Cup Lucky Seven: Day Eleven

Boroughbridge AFCAs the group stages reach their two-thirds marker it's still all to play for in the World Cup Lucky Seven with the leader on 37 points but 48 still available to earn. Andy Layton is that leader and his gap is three points from Paul Lamb who in turn is two clear from a trio in joint third. Unsurprisingly nobody predicted England's winning scoreline but 121 did pick up a point, whilst just 29 points were scored in Columbia's win over Poland. To see where you stand take a look at the full table.
23 Jun - World Cup Lucky Seven: Day Ten

Boroughbridge AFCGermany's late winner against Sweden ensured it was points a plenty across the board on Day Ten of the World Cup Lucky Seven as a tie returns to the top of the table. Paul Lamb remains in first but he is joined by Andy Layton on 34 points with a four point gap back to a chasing three in joint third. Nobody managed a perfect day of nine points but there were eight to add seven points to their tallies meaning lots of movement across the table. To see where you stand take a look at the full table.
23 Jun - England Live At Aldborough Road

Don't forget that all England's games at the World Cup are being shown live on the big screen at Aldborough Road this summer, and there's an afternoon of entertainment around tomorrow's game against Panama.

The fun kicks off from 12 noon with the England game live from 1pm and all welcome to come down and get involved.
22 Jun - World Cup Lucky Seven: Day Nine

Boroughbridge AFCAs the group stages pass their half-way marker clear gaps are starting to emerge atop the World Cup Lucky Seven table. Another day brings another change at the summit as Paul Lamb takes sole control by two points from Andy Layton, who leads a quartet in third place by three points. On the pitch Brazil's win over Costa Rica proved easy to predict with just six not selecting that outcome, however the day's later games were somewhat tougher with those to pick up three points on either being the ones making the moves in the table. To see where you stand take a look at the full table.
21 Jun - World Cup Lucky Seven: Day Eight

Boroughbridge AFCAll change again atop the World Cup Lucky Seven with three now in a tie for the lead after points for many on two of the day's games but slim pickings in the last. Paul Lamb remains in joint first but now shares that position with Andy Layton and Pauline Carradice with two more just a point further back. Just seven competitors didn't predict a France win in the day's second game but few got the full three points whilst a lower number predicted a draw between Denmark and Australia, although those to predict a split were more often than not correct in their one all scoreline. To see where you stand take a look at the full table.
20 Jun - England Live At Aldborough Road

Don't forget that all England's games at the World Cup are being shown live on the big screen at Aldborough Road this summer, and there's an afternoon of entertainment around this Sunday's game against Panama.

The fun kicks off from 12 noon with the England game live from 1pm and all welcome to come down and get involved.
20 Jun - World Cup Lucky Seven: Day Seven

Boroughbridge AFCIt was a predictable day of outcomes at the World Cup but not of scorelines for our Lucky Seven hopefuls with points across the board but none of the 126 getting more than one scoreline correct. That all means it remains tight at the top with Lorraine Stephenson still top but now sharing first with Paul Lamb on 23 points and Andy Layton a point back in outright third. To see where you stand take a look at the full table.
19 Jun - World Cup Lucky Seven: Day Six

Boroughbridge AFCAfter yesterday's bonanza it was back to slim pickings today in the World Cup Lucky Seven with the day's three matches combined delivering fewer points than the lowest scoring single match yesterday. For the first time, however, there is a sole name out front by more than one point with Lorraine Stephenson opening up a two point advantage over a chasing trio. Russia's win over Egypt proved easiest to predict but still delivered just 61 points across the board whilst the day's other two games added just 61 points combined to the tallies. To see where you stand take a look at the full table.
18 Jun - World Cup Lucky Seven: Day Five

Boroughbridge AFCThere were not one but two perfect scores on a day where the points flowed in the World Cup Lucky Seven. John Ritchie and Dave Bramley both picked up nine points from nine on the day's games whilst plenty more added seven to their tallies. Belgium's win over Panama was easiest to predict with only two not opting for a Belgian victory and 200 points added to the collective totals whilst Harry Kane's headed winner delivered a late points rush to many. Atop the table it's a three-way tie for first between Lorraine Stephenson, Paul Lamb and Pauline Carradice. To see where you stand take a look at the full table.
17 Jun - World Cup Lucky Seven: Day Four

Boroughbridge AFCIn contrast to yesterday it was a day of slim pickings at the World Cup for our 125 Lucky Seven hopefuls with just 89 points added across the board. There's a new name at the top with Lorraine Stephenson out ahead by a point from Paul Nunn followed by four tied in third. The day's first game yielded the most points but just four competitors foresaw a Mexican victory over Germany and Brazil's draw with Switzerland added just eleven points to the tallies. To see where you stand take a look at the full table.
16 Jun - World Cup Lucky Seven: Day Three

Boroughbridge AFCThere were points a plenty for many on the third day of this year's World Cup Lucky Seven but just one person remains to have scored at least a point in every game with just eight under the belts. That person is Pauline Carradice who holds joint-first on twelve points alongside Helen Green and Paul Lamb. Argentina's draw with Iceland was the game to catch the majority out with just 11 points across the board whilst France's win over Australia yielded 147 points across the 125 competitors.

15 Jun - World Cup Lucky Seven: Day Two

Boroughbridge AFCIt was a day of drama in Russia with late goals, a classic encounter and even a hat-trick. The first full day of competition has also brought changes in the World Cup Lucky Seven table with Pauline Carradice the first person to take an outright lead atop the table. Five points on the day were enough to move her one clear of five tied in second. To see where you stand take a look at the full table.
14 Jun - World Cup Lucky Seven: Day One

Boroughbridge AFCThe 2018 World Cup kicked off in Moscow this afternoon and so did this year's World Cup Lucky Seven competition.

14 May - Around The Leagues

Boroughbridge AFCAfter an intense battle over much of the season, this year's West Yorkshire League Division One title has gone the way of Rawdon Old Boys. A run of five wins in their final five league games has moved the long-time leaders four points clear of Whitkirk Wanderers who have just one game remaining of their campaign, whilst third place could still be taken by either of Wyke Wanderers or Featherstone Colliery. Down at the bottom of the table it is Howden Clough, Altofts and Brighouse Old Boys who occupy the final three placings with Brighouse having a game remaining but unable to move from the base even with a win.

Into the Alliance Division Two where matters are also now settled and in this case go the way of Whitkirk Wanderers Reserves. Despite defeat in their final league game this evening Wanderers' volume of games in hand have been enough to give them a nine point margin of victory over Hall Green United Reserves with Aberford Albion Reserves a further two points back. The title race is run also in the Harrogate & District League Division One, finally, where it is Ventus Yeadon Celtic who have taken the top spot. Their margin is six points over Thirsk Falcons Reserves with Bedale AFC Reserves a further three points back and still able to snatch second thanks to their two remaining games.

Boroughbridge AFCThere's just two weeks remaining in this season's Lucky Seven competition and we're still no closer to knowing the identity of this year's champion.

12 Mar - Around The Leagues

Boroughbridge AFCThe weather played a big factor in the weekend's fixture sets once again, with just three games across the club's four divisions going ahead, the 'Bridge 'A' win at Bedale AFC Reserves being the sole game in the Harrogate & District League Division One. In the West Yorkshire League Division One it was Rothwell's trip to Kippax in the bottom half of the table that survived the thaw but there was no shortage of goals with the hosts running out to a six two win to consolidate their eighth place in the table whilst Rothwell remain eleventh. It was an almost exact mirror story in the Alliance Division Two where one game went ahead and the hosts were six two winners. Wetherby Athletic Reserves were the victors to move up to tenth in the table, beating Altofts Reserves who remain second from the bottom.
10 Mar - Result: 'Bridge 'A' Beat Bedale

'Bridge 'A' notched their eighth win of the season this afternoon with victory by the odd goal in three at third place Bedale AFC Reserves. Ben Clayton and Mark Burniston were on target in a win which consolidates Stephen Coles' side's seventh place in the Harrogate & District League Division One table. The day's two ties against Whitkirk Wanderers, meanwhile, were postponed due to waterlogged pitches.
