Some West Yorkshire League history - saved.


THE 1950s

 

The West Yorkshire League appears to have been founded in 1928 as ‘The Leeds League’. In 1939, however, the name of the competition was changed to its present title.

 

Records for the competition have proved difficult to find. The earliest league table discovered so far comes from 1950-1951. This is for Division 1. The top flight end-of-season standings for that campaign are where it is therefore necessary to start. The Division 1 tables for the next few seasons follow, but by the end of the decade a couple of problems had arisen as you’ll see below. Hopefully, these will be solved in due course.

1959-1960

 

No final table for 1959-1960 has yet been found.

 

1960-1967

 

The West Yorkshire League’s history from 1960 onwards is proving very difficult to unearth. There is some information available for the period 1960-1967 and this is provided below. On the down side, many of the details for the League’s lower sections have yet to emerge and it has proved impossible to date to discover the goals for and against records for many of the tables provided. On the ‘up’ side, for the 1960-1961 and 1965-1966 seasons, all the competitions final standings have been found (excluding the goals) and it is therefore possible to see the size, structure and extent of the West Yorkshire League at the time.

At this point ‘the trail goes cold’

 

Apart from one Premier Division final table for 1979-1980 and a list of West Yorkshire League champions from 1980-1981, there is currently a blank in the competition’s history for over 30 years.

 

The record must be out there somewhere and anyone who can shed light on this period is urged to contact the site and help to preserve the competition’s history.
