Whinmoor Warriors originally started life as Pendas Panthers playing from two portakabins cabins at the side of Fieldhead Carr School. Despite the fact that facilities were sparse producing talent was not a problem, players that have gone on to play professional in the early years include, Leroy Rivett, Adam Hughes, David and Anthony Gibbons who can still be seen today plying their trade in the professional ranks.
1996 was a difficult year for the Panthers, playing numbers were at an all time low and the club was struggling to survive. A desperate plea went out to the local community to try and save this proud club and through perseverance and willing parents the club rose like a phoenix out of the ashes. This saw a new committee formed with Tracey, Debbie and Jason starting the tireless work of a club rebuild.
First of was a name change and Pendas Panthers became Whinmoor Warriors but still retained the playing colours of Pendas Panthers so all links were not broken.
1996 was the start of a hard season, with the Warriors only able to field two teams, one at U8s and one at U11s, the club were fortunate that new blood came into the club to help with the running of the teams in the shape of Fred and Simon taking on the U11s and Jason and Stephen running the U8s. It was a hard struggle with limited playing numbers and resources but we perceived and completed all our games for a successful first season.
Over the next few years the club grew in strength and playing numbers increased which saw us been able to field more teams.
The club continues to go from strength to strength and now fields teams at U9's, U10, U12, U13, U15 and U16
