Reserves at Bradford RIASA on Saturday - NEW ADDRESS

Whilst the First Team start on the road to Wembley in the FA Cup on Saturday, the Reserves travel across the Pennines for Lancashire League fixture against Bradford RIASA with a 2pm kick off. The game will be played on a grass pitch at Weetwood Pavillion, Leeds University Playing Fields off Otley Road Leeds LS16 5PT. Travel times are similar to the previous location.

RIASA stands for the Richmond International Academic & Soccer Academy, as the name suggests they provide football and academic coaching to players in the Yorkshire area. They operate three teams in the Lancashire League. RIASA East operate in the Eastern Division whilst Bradford along with RIASA South play in the Southern Division. All three teams are designed to educate players whilst providing a pathway into adult football. RIASA has links with Bradford City amongst others, so a high quality game of football is anticipated.
