First Team Star
Jul 22, 2013, 8:02 PM
Harrogate League - loses a division.
Ripon Red Arrows demoted 2 divisions, effectively taking over the place held by their reserves.
Kirkstall Crusaders new to div 1 - from Leeds Red Triangle
FC Harrogate - new to div 2
The league loses Ilkley Town 'A' (to Craven League), and reserves of Ripon Red Arrows & Pateley Bridge
Hampsthwaite HC for some reason promoted 2 divisions (they finished 3rd in div3)
Halifax League - just about hangs on to its 'division 3'
Warley Rangers now King Cross Warley
St.Columbas are only new team
Spen Valley League - up to 3 divisions :)
East Bowling All Stars (Bradford), Route 1 Rovers, Sporting Batley - all new to premier (I suspect the former were Fairbank reserves last season)
George Healey - an old name, possibly a re-named club but could be 'new' - in div 1
Lots of new names in div 2 - including several other Bradford based teams. Some may be name changes.
new teams: Ilkley Town 'A' (from Harrogate League), Salts 'A' (who will play at Esholt), Broomhill (playing at Marley, keighley) all new to div 2
Polonia Patson (also at Keighley, reformed Polish Sunday team) in div 2. Northern FC won't be joining div 3 after all.
Pendle Athletic, Oakworth (both teams), Barlick barons (one of their teams), Silsden Whitestar reserves, Padiham Town - all drop out
