YOUNG soccer players have been booted out of their Huddersfield home.
The players from Junior Collegians have to find a new base to complete the season, because of a cash dispute with Outlane Junior School.
Club officials say they have had to leave the school, which has been their home for several years, because they refuse to pay extra costs.
But the school says extra costs have to be charged because of the growing number of people using the school facilities.
The row means the BUPA Junior League club will use other pitches for the rest of the season.
Its officials are now looking for a permanent new home.
Alan Meredith, club development officer, said: "Following a series of cordial, yet fruitless, meetings with the chairman of governors, the head teacher and the caretaker the club have been presented with a `take it or leave' it ultimatum.
"This is either to pay the caretaker for four hours for working on a Saturday morning or get out. This is despite the club paying rent for use of the school fields.
"The school's approach is very disappointing. Its effect is to deprive 80 boys and girls of the benefits that come from developing soccer skills, having fun and experiencing success," said Mr Meredith.
"To take the school playing fields out of reach of the local community is very discouraging to those adults who, on a voluntary basis, seek to develop opportunities for children - whatever their ability - to enjoy and take part in football."
Chairman Brian Whitehead said: "The offer from the school was an insult to the many members and supporters of our club who have given countless hours of their time on a voluntary basis."
But head teacher Kelvin Greensides said the letting of the school facilities had to be done on proper terms. "The club has used the fields for a peppercorn rent, but has grown in recent years and there have been problems.
"It is not so much the Collegians, it is the visiting teams who block the car park, block the drives with cars and trail mud across the playground.
"We need the caretaker on site to open up the school, including the toilets, and to clean up afterwards.
"We don't want to be at loggerheads with the club, but we need to be responsible for the building and the site."
