North Ferriby Football Club to host England International
Thursday 9th of April 2020
North Ferriby Football Club are delighted to announce that their Dransfield Stadium home has been selected to host the England U18 vs Scotland U18 Victory Shield international on Thursday 9 April 2020.
Club Chairman Les Hare commented: “This is truly a wonderful opportunity for our football club to showcase the facilities we have worked so hard to develop and we’re immensely proud to have been awarded such a prestigious fixture. Youth development is at the heart of this club and so perhaps it’s fitting our whole community can now share in this acknowledgement of our achievements and contribution to the development of local football generally in this, the 100th year of football in the village”.
Humberside Schools FA are proud too to announce the hosting of the Victory Shield U18 international fixture, England v Scotland, to be played at North Ferriby. A spokesman said: “Humberside has a fine tradition of player representation at this level with Levi Tarbotton, now a player for North Ferriby, having captained the England U18 team last season. Previously Matt Bloor, a player from South Hunsley School (as was Levi) also captained the England team whilst playing for North Ferriby. We are delighted to work with Les Hare at North Ferriby FC in planning this prestigious event”.
Full details of the game will follow in due course.
