Date posted: 14 November 2018
The All Star Football Academy and Lloyd Land Rover Ripon have linked up to bring an exciting 7-a-side football tournament for local kids with teams including; Leeds City Juniors, Knaresborough Celtic FC, and Beckwithshaw Saints Juniors.
The tournament is taking place at the Rosset Sports Centre. Registration will be from 8.30am with CEO and Director of Coaching, Christian Fox, so don’t be late!
The acquisition of the Ripon dealership in 2016 increased Lloyd Motor’s investment in North Yorkshire, and this sponsorship is just one of many, where the Lloyd name wants to give back to the local communities and improve the provisions and opportunities for future generations.

Ex-Pro, Fox, now manages Selby Town alongside running the Academy. A career which saw him come up against international footballers such as Muzzy Izzet and Robbie Savage, provided the foundation for Christian’s coaching career helping mould and build his character, coaching style and knowledge. Knowledge he now passes on to hundreds of kids around North Yorkshire.
"This tournament is just one of the many things that this sponsorship allows us to do as an Academy, we’re all really excited for Sunday and it’s great for all the kids to be supported by what will be a great crowd"
Christian Fox, CEO at All Star Football Academy.
