Visit the Central Midlands League Website

Armthorpe play in the Central Midlands League, currently in the Supreme Division. The Welfare Ground is one of the most friendly grounds in the region, a fact that never ceases to amaze me with every visit. The facilities in the ground aren't the best, to be honest they are a little on the basic side. One thing they can be proud of is the pitch, probably the best in the Doncaster area.

Whilst it is a friendly and pleasant place to visit, the souvenir selection isn't much better than many others at this level. Badges have been made available in the past, whether they still are I don't know, but I have yet to see a programme at a game I have visited there.

I haven't seen a copy of this club's programme at the moment, however I am assured one is produced (it's also Central Midlands League Rule 11.(D) that states all member clubs must produce one) although to what quality I don't know. I will give a mark when I get one.
