Yorkshire Team Competition Results 2022-23


Saturday 22nd of April saw the final round of the Yorkshire League.


The Woodhouse Cup (Div. 1) was won by Sheffield A.  Technically, had Sheffield lost all games in their match versus Calderdale, and York A had managed at least 7˝ game points from their match versus Hull & DCA A, then York would have secured first place on a game-point tie-break.  Sadly for York, no pigs were seen flying round the skies of Yorkshire that Saturday!


The I M Brown Shield (Div. 2) was won by Huddersfield.  Again, a miracle last-round loss by Huddersfield would have let Ilkley Dragons win, but that too was never going to happen.


The Silver Rook (Div. 3) was won by York D.  That was already “in the bag”, and York D could afford to lose their last match.  It is good to see Dewsbury, who were returning to the league later than other clubs, doing well (2nd), and it was also good to see new-comers Settle doing well (3rd).


The Under-18 Teams’ Championship was evidently (this may be wrong) deemed to have been won by Hull & East Riding A with York Assassins second.  (It may be that the York-Hull tie on match points as represented on LMS and this website was resolved by their individual match result rather than game points.)
