We pride ourselves on being a club for all. We have teams at every age group from u’5 to our men’s and ladies first team, continuing on to our over 35’s and over 45’s veteran’s teams. We aim to provide a team to play in for any age or gender. Our junior teams compete in a variety of leagues across the Wharfe valley. Leagues include The Craven and Harrogate leagues which are in our closest vicinity. The girl’s fixtures are usually played on a Saturday and the boys usually play their fixtures on Sundays. As our players transition from their respective junior sections of the club into adult football there are numerous teams available. The ladies have a 1st team and a reserve squad is in the planning to encourage more ladies to play at Ilkley Town. The male section of the club comprises of our u’21, u’23, reserve and 1st team. The men’s 1st team are currently transitioning into semi professional football. We also have veterans teams at over 35’s and over 45’s respectively.
