Welcome to Ripon City Football Club. Here you will be able to follow the progress of all things concerning Ripon City FC. We have been established since 1898 and we are a genuine grass roots community club.
Our first team play in the West Yorkshire Premier Division whilst our reserve team hone their skills in the West Yorkshire Alliance One Division. Our Sunday team play in Claro League Division One and, on the occasional Sunday afternoon, Ripon Veterans will grace the pitch before retiring to the clubhouse for drinks and chip butties!
We are a very friendly club run for the benefit of the community who enjoy football and all that goes with it.
However we are not without ambition and are currently seeking to relocate to much larger premises which we see us sell our present home at Mallorie Park. We hope to build a sports complex that will allow us to progress to a higher standard of football whilst providing excellent facilities which can be used by the local community.
A ‘double header’ of County Cup action in Ripon this weekend. Both teams have home draws and this means that the Reserves will not have to give up home advantage. Ripon City First Team take on local rivals Boroughbridge in what promises to be an excellent contest. Kick off for this one is 1.00pm and [...]
After two disappointing results Ripon faced a tough test away at Whitkirk Wanderers in the WYPL. Ripon were able to welcome back Rob Mortimer, Ally Wilson, Kev Morris, Pa and Oggy was restored between the pots. A perfect day for football on a very good pitch set the game up nicely. Whitkirk have enjoyed an [...]
Local rivals Boroughbridge visited Mallorie Park for the eagerly awaited league fixture. Ripon were looking to avenge both the Whitworth Cup Final defeat and the WYPL defeat at the start of the season. And up until the last few minutes the plan seemed to be working. Two up inside twenty minutes with goals from Ash [...]
Ripon City welcome local rivals Boroughbridge to Mallorie Park for what promises to be facinating contest. Both teams have shown good form in recent weeks and just a single point seperates them in the league. Hopefully a good crowd will tun out for what should be an absolute cracker!!!! Kick off for this one is [...]
It was a long trip but worth it in the end as Ripon returned from Shelley with three more vital league points and with now four wins on the trot under their belts. The set up at Shelley is excellent and the pitch was a credit to the Club considering the amount of rain that [...]
On a rain sodden afternoon at Mallorie Park a good crowd turned up to see Ripon battle it out in the County Cup against Bardsey, the team that will be favourites for every competition that they enter. A class act and even without the suspended stars of Thompson and Dicko still have enough quality in [...]
Both teams recorded excellent wins at the weekend to make it a very good day for the Club. Ripon travelled to Otley Town FC for their WYPL fixture. After a comfortable win against Kirk Deighton Charlie was looking for back-to-back wins for the first time since the opening two games of the season. Otley always [...]
Ripon enjoyed mixed fortunes in the Harrogate District Cup competitions at the weekend. The visitors to Mallorie Park were Kirk Deighton. Always a very strong side in the Harrogate Premier League they had the chance to cause an upset over the team from the WYPL. These games are always tricky affairs. Ripon are expected to [...]
Ripon First Team travelled to inform Field FC which was always going to be a tricky fixture. This was not helped by injuries and unavailability to Charlie’s squad. Ripon could have been a goal up within a couple of minutes of the start. A ball into the box beat everyone and Kyle Fox could not [...]
Ripon City finally returned to football action after a two-week break. First they had a bye in the Whitworth Cup followed by a break in the League fixtures for the ‘Celebration of Football’ event held for the Club. This gave players time to get over early season knocks but also left them short of match practice. [...]
