A record turnout of 31 junior athletes competed in a second round fixture of the Youth Development League Division One, which was held at the Keepmoat Stadium in Doncaster.

The combined team of under-13 and under-15 athletes finished very close to the host club Doncaster Athletic Club in fourth place, and ahead of Bingley Harriers, who are a leading West Yorkshire Club.

The points gained for fourth place consolidated the club’s overall standing at the halfway stage in the league, and with one of the two remaining fixtures being the home fixture at York, it is most likely that the club will retain Division One status after promotion last season.
