Celebrating 100 years of Craven District Football Association….

February 26, 2010

Last year the Craven FA celebrated a century of football, the association was formed in 1909 at a meeting in the Midland Hotel, Skipton.

A book documenting the history of both the association and all member clubs  was compiled last year by Mr. Allan Cawood, President of the Craven FA.  The publication is illustrated by many old team photographs ( Gargrave are represented by team photographs from 1927/28 when they were the Craven League and Craven Cup winners  and a team photograph from 1936/37. Both kindly loaned by Dennis French ). All nineteen member clubs are represented in the book, documenting the highs and lows over the years. There are also sections on the Referee`s, footballing families, Craven characters and much much more.

The book is priced at £5.00 and there is also a DVD which displays many more of the old Craven footballing photographs, the DVD is priced at a £1.00.

Copies can be purchased from the pavilion on match days or alternately please contact Caroline.
