Arniston Rangers Youth Football Club (ARYFC) currently has in the region of 150 kids playing for us between the ages of 5 and 14. It's a number that's growing rapidly each year as we get our name in the community and of course, as Gorebridge and the wider area grow. 

Players born between 2010 and 2011 (our Cherokee's...) currently train once a week with the 2010s playing on a Saturday (4v4s). The 2005 to 2009 age groups train twice a week. Our 2009s play 5-a-side games on a Saturday, with the 2005-2008 age groups playing 7-a-side football on a Sunday.  Both our 2003 and 2004 age groups train twice a week, play each Sunday in the Scottish Youth Leagues - and play in the Scottish Cup and similar competitions. 

Click on the Squads page for more info on each team.

In recent years the number of 'new recruits' has grown substantially ….. and will grow even more during 2017 with the club having a home of its own at Gore Glen Pavilion and the exciting new development planned in 2017 for Arniston Park .  The next phase will hopefully see ARYFC have teams running right through the youth age groups, and beyond.
