Script error: No such module "AfC submission catcheck". Riccall United is is an amatuer football club in Riccall, North Yorkshire, England. They are currently members of the York Minster Engineering Football League and play at the Riccall Regen Centre.


Established in 1919, they have competed throughout the York District League's for over 100 years. During those early days, the team would often travel to fixtures in the back of a horse and cart, kindly loaned by a local farmer.

It wasn't until 1968 when Riccall finally set the stage alight, becoming the very first non-top division club to win the York Senior League Cup. A year later, this was followed up with the York and District Second Division Title and the East Riding Junior Cup.

Even more success followed up after this, as Riccall saw the League Championship come to the club's Hare and Hounds base, as well as the Senior League Cup.

The League title was won again in 1974, 75, 77 and 78 and the club had a proud record of never finishing below third place in the league between 1970 and 1979.[1]

Some of the longest serving players for Riccall includes Tony Free, Ian Brown, Toddy Longfield and Paul Hurd with around 500 appearances each, whilst Billy Bills and Denish Whitehead clocked up over 1500 games between them. In recent years, some players could proudly join this list, after winning the League title once again in 2015, with victories in 24 out of 28 games.[2]
