A few new Bradford teams too, some of which we've seen before (TVR)

Can't find White Rose anywhere?

Did Tyersal Res become Stanningley Res?

Bradford Phoenix are an open age side of Phoenix Juniors.
This league is certainly going from strength to strength.

North Huddersfield FC were formally known as Sporting Cav who have come from Hudds District League Div 3. Good set of lads. Not sure where they will be playing from as their pitch is poor and changing rooms about half a mile from pitch the used since they started a few years ago.

After being told that their current facilities wouldn’t be acceptable, I believe they are playing at Leeds Road playing fields. Good changing and pitches

Thanks for that RE: North Hudds.

Any idea why they moved from the Huddersfield League?

I believe they want a better standard of Football.
Having watched Sporting CAV last season then they must have a completely new team. I'm 16 stone and I would have been one of the lighter ones.

I know the YAL is a higher standard but how do the lower divisions of it compare to the lower Hudds District Leagues?

My knowledge is pretty limited to the Hudds League but Division 3 is not a great standard and Sporting CAV didn't really do much in that league last season

I've never watched the lower divisions of the YAL but I don't think it would be much different to be honest. Just mostly different locations further away from Huddersfield. The top division is certainly far better than anything in the Huddersfield league.

I think White Rose could be White Rose All Stars from Huddersfield as they have a new senior team this year. See their facebook.

Less likelY alternative would be Sherburn White Rose from Elmet, Leeds.
Full Time has White Rose playing at Heckmondwike sports club, otherwise Cemetery Road.
This was where Heckmondwike Town played in the County Amateur League

Fairbank United are unable to use their ground as the company that leases it out for the school they play at has gone bust. Looks like they will be playing at Bingley Road, Heaton instead, although the nearby Zara Sports Centre, where changing facilities are located, is still closed. Therefore players have to come already changed.

Now the Wakefield League has been released I think we can confirm that Old Batlians have folded.

Shame as they were a founding member of the YAL (Did they fold before)?

No major surprise. They had an aging committee and clubs around that area seem to struggle longer term.

They’re listed as a team in Division Four, but not showing in the league table.

The YAL offered teams who felt they couldn’t or didn’t want to play the season (due to the situation) a chance to suspend their membership until 21/22. Bateluans took up the offer

Thanks

Do you know if any others did?
