Football Club is disbanded

Bishop Monkton Football Club was sadly disbanded in October 2015 due to the departure of seven long-standing players at the end of last season and problems in recruiting suitable replacements. 

The move, which comes after 10 years of play, is linked to a decline in support for amateur soccer in the area with the number of teams participating in the Claro League having dropped from 100 to 19.It was hoped another club might wish to make use of the ground.

And since 2016 Nidd United Juniors (U13 to U18, Boys and Girls) train there on Saturday mornings and play matches on Sunday.
