West Yorkshire Clarets plan for 2012
Feature by John Robertson
Updated Wednesday, 11th January 2012
2011 proved to be yet another good year for the West Yorkshire Clarets. Membership has continued to rise steadily and meetings have been very well attended at almost all chosen meeting locations across the metropolitan county.
|The April meeting will be in Saltaire|
Keighley, Sowerby Bridge, Dewsbury and Saltaire proved to be very successful meetings at the start of last year and these locations remain on the calendar for the start of 2012. The year though, will begin just a stone’s throw away from Halifax Station; a favourite location for many members of the group.
In April, the group will enjoy a few drinks in Saltaire and as is customary, a curry buffet-tea will get this particular evening underway. In the same month, the West Yorkshire Clarets will be in attendance at Turf Moor, where they will present awards at the Supporters Clubs Player of the Year Evening.
This six month schedule will end with a trip to Silsden on the final Thursday of June; our second trip there following an excellent inaugural visit there in the same month of last year.
For a full breakdown of the forthcoming meetings, please see the calendar below, or alternatively find them on the Clarets Mad Friendlies/Key Dates page.

Monthly meetings tend to be generally informal affairs, where the aim is to discuss football with friends, new and old, rather than to work through a structured agenda. If you are residing in the West Yorkshire area and are keen to get involved with the group, don't hesitate to get in touch.
The West Yorkshire Clarets are really looking forward to 2012; it promises to be another really good year and as always, new faces will be warmly welcomed.
