West Yorkshire League

West Yorkshire League

The West Yorkshire Association Football League is a football competition based in Yorkshire, England. It was previously known as the Leeds League until the name change in 1939. Although it is named the West Yorkshire League, North Yorkshire clubs from Harrogate and York also play in the competition.

Currently the league has three senior team divisions, and two for reserves. Officially part of the National League System, the Premier Division is a step 7 (or level 11) league in the pyramid. Clubs are able to be promoted to the Northern Counties East Football League and Knaresborough Town in 2012 were accepted by the Northern Counties East League.

Some other teams who once played in the West Yorkshire League but now play their football at higher levels of the pyramid, include Harrogate Town, Harrogate Railway Athletic, Ossett Town, Thackley and Garforth Town.

Famous quotes containing the words league and/or west:

    I am not impressed by the Ivy League establishments. Of course they graduate the best—it’s all they’ll take, leaving to others the problem of educating the country. They will give you an education the way the banks will give you money—provided you can prove to their satisfaction that you don’t need it.
    Peter De Vries (b. 1910)

    Every man is in a state of conflict, owing to his attempt to reconcile himself and his relationship with life to his conception of harmony. This conflict makes his soul a battlefield, where the forces that wish this reconciliation fight those that do not and reject the alternative solutions they offer. Works of art are attempts to fight out this conflict in the imaginative world.
    —Rebecca West (1892–1983)
