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:

    He will deliver you from six troubles; in seven no harm shall touch you. In famine he will redeem you from death, and in war from the power of the sword. You shall be hidden from the scourge of the tongue, and shall not fear destruction when it comes. At destruction and famine you shall laugh, and shall not fear the wild animals of the earth. For you shall be in league with the stones of the field, and the wild animals shall be at peace with you.
    Bible: Hebrew, Job 5:19-23.

    Go on, high ship, since now, upon the shore,
    The snake has left its skin upon the floor.
    Key West sank downward under massive clouds
    And silvers and greens spread over the sea. The moon
    Is at the mast-head and the past is dead.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
