Knaresborough Town F.C. - History - Reformation


The club was folded at the start of World War II, but reformed under their original name, the name of Knaresborough Football Club due to financial problems. Soon after the Town part of the club's name was restored. They did not return to the York League however, in the following 25 years they played in the West Yorkshire League and the Harrogate and District League. They also moved to their current ground Manse Lane by the end of the 1950s.

For a long period from 1972 onwards, they were a part of the Harrogate League. Only to be accepted back into the West Yorkshire League as recently as 1993-94. They marked their return to the league in style, winning the Premier Division League Cup final against Sherburn White Rose 3-1 at Queen's Terrace; Ossett Albion's stadium.

The Whitworth Cup was won in 1995 and the Hulme Cup in 1999 & 2004. The Reserves had success with League and Cup wins in the West Yorkshire League, doing the double in Division Four in 1994-95 and followed that by winning the Division Three title the following year to gain promotion into division two. It was after this season that the Premier Alliance Division (now called Alliance Division One) was formed for the reserve sides of the Premier Division teams. The Reserves have won the Premier Alliance Division League Cup in 1998-99 and again in 2003-04. Under the management of Rob Pearson and Colin Lacey the Club won the Whitworth Cup in 2005-06. Brian Davey brought it back to Knaresborough in 2007-08 and finished a creditable third in the West Yorkshire League Premier Division. In Brian’s words his objective was to improve on that position the following season and he certainly stood by those words, winning the West Yorkshire League Premier Division Title in 2008-09.
It was during the season 2008-09 that the club moved out of the old clubhouse building which had served as changing rooms before it was turned into a clubhouse in 1992 and into the new one.
The following year in 2009-10 the club won the coveted West Riding County FA 'County Challenge Cup'.
Knaresborough Town football club has regularly issued programmes for first team matches since 1993. It is also thought that the club may have produced occasional issues prior to that time though no copies remain in the hands of the club.

Famous quotes containing the word reformation:

    Go on then in doing with your pen what in other times was done with the sword; shew that reformation is more practicable by operating on the mind than on the body of man.
