OUR STORY

The club was founded in 2018 with a single team under the name HD Select (Huddersfield District) AFC.

In 2020 we applied to the Junior Premier League to become one of their network of 15 Regional Talent Centres. Our application was accepted and we changed our name to Yorkshire Regional Talent Centre.

In the same year we became proud partners with Emley AFC who are a highly respected and established Semi Professional Club in the Yorkshire area.

This relationship provides a clear progression route into a semi professional academy for any players who do not get signed by a Pro Club by the age of 16

We currently have teams from U9s to U14s competing in the JPL with plans to introduce U15 and U16s teams next season (22/23).

We are also developing an U8s Foundation squad.
