this is the last major historical piece that I'm putting on here.

this is a list of all the clubs we have met in the Yorkshire League, with a list of the seasons we played them. Also, I'll include a few brief notes on some of those clubs.

I will do first teams first, then at the end I will do the reserve and A teams.

45-49 means 1945-46 to 1948-49; 49-59 means 1949-50 to 1958-59 and so on.

first of all, the divisions we were in while in the Yorkshire League:

45-49 Yorkshire League (1 division only, Div 2 formed 1949)
49-59 Division 1
59-60 Division 2
60-62 Division 1
62-70 Division 2 (Div 3 formed 1970)
70-73 Division 3
73-75 Division 2
75-76 Division 3
76-78 Division 2
78-80 Division 1
80-82 Division 2 (Yorkshire League merged with Midland League in 1982 to form NCEL)

(edited for typing like a clown)
