A MEN’S football team is gearing up for their return to league action later this summer.

Oakworth FC will kick off their first season back playing in the Craven Football League from August 1.

Manager Shay Mallon and all of his players are looking forward to the challenge ahead and are happy to be bringing men's football back to the Oakworth community.
