My grandfather and brothers alike all worked at Fryston Colliery and lived in the village. My grandfather has identified the above badge as a type issued to the Fryston football team when they were playing on a tour in the former Yugoslavia. He understands that the initials F.Y.C stood for FRYSTON YOUTH CLUB
