North Ferriby to host international game

5th December, 2019

North Ferriby will be the hosts for next year's Victory Shield international match between England U18s and Scotland U18s.

Dransfield Stadium has been selected to be the venue for the game, considered to be the biggest in the competition, and takes place on Thursday 9th April, 2020.

The news comes just six months after the club was formed and is reward for all the hard work that has been done behind the scenes following the liquidation of the village's previous team, North Ferriby United.

Club chairman Les Hare said: "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 hundredth year of football in the village."

The Villagers also have a link with the England U18s in their squad as defender Levi Tarbotton captained the young Lions last season.
