First teams go it alone in Central Yorkshire League
The Solly Sports Central Yorkshire League will revert to separate first eleven and second eleven competitions this season.
There will be 12 clubs at Premiership level, eight in the newly-named Championship and the remaining eight in Division One. Places have been allocated on the basis of 2013 positions.
Since 2002, there has been a mix of first and second elevens in all divisions outside the top flight, and it is only two years since clubs voted to stick to that format.
This time, however, in response to an official proposal for change submitted by Altofts, the league’s management committee was required by constitution rules to decide on the issue.
As in recent seasons, Premiership clubs will meet home and away for a total of 22 fixtures, but teams in the other sections will play each other three times for a total of 21 matches.
Promotion and relegation will be two-up, two-down, with the bottom two clubs in Division One required to seek re-election.
First XI, Premiership: Townville, Methley, Wakefield Thornes, Carlton, Wrenthorpe, Birstall, Hunslet Nelson, Mirfield Parish Cavaliers, Ossett, Altofts, Hopton Mills, Scholes.
Division One: Azaad, Mirfield, Thornhill, Caribbean, Westwood Park, Rodley, Gildersome, Adwalton.
