Start of the new season for the Allstars

The South Leeds Allstars held our first presentation/kit release day on Saturday (1 July 2023) at the John Charles Centre For Sport.

Last season was a hugely successful time for this group of players, they finished top of their league in the Garforth League only losing one game in the league all season, which was the first game in September 2022. They also came runners up in the league cup where they beat higher opposition in every round leading up to the final, before sadly losing out to a fantastic team in Leeds Navy.

Saturday was all about enjoying a day celebrating their success, looking forward to the new season and introducing all of the players and parents to each other to foster a fantastic culture within the club.

We had a special guest return to present the awards to each player in Nathan Tufour who has done the LS10 community proud whilst representing Bradford City for the past two seasons and has just signed another contract for the new season.

Award winners on the day were:

  • Clubman of the year – Alfie Laycock
  • Top Goal scorer – Joy Jose
  • Players’ player – Dylan Baira
  • Manager’s player – Oliver Best
  • Parents’ player – Nathanael Brown
  • Most improved – Kaiser Silva

All in all a great end to the 2022/23 season and we can now move forward with the same target – retaining our league trophy in the Garforth Junior League and trying to win the Selby league with our new Saturday team. Either way as long as all of the players and parents have a smile on their faces we will of done our job next season.

A huge thank you to all of our sponsors, The Country Kitchen, Bluebird Care, Windsor Mechanical and Electrical, Fluffs & Scruffs and AK Electrical for making all of this possible.
