cheers, they obviously didn't get enough decent applicants for that extra division they had proposed.

County Amateur League now up on fulltime . It seems that Bradford FC are now Bradford Olympic. That suggests a tie-up with Bradford Sunday League champpions Olympic FC. If so, expect them to be massively improved next season !

Is there any tie up between AFC Bingley and Bingley Town of the Craven League?
From what I can piece together from twitter they both seem to be based at Wagon Lane.

I'll check but I'm pretty sure they are different clubs entirely. AFC Bingley played at Bingley Grammar School last season (their first season), while Bingley Town have been going for a number of years under various different guises (Long Lee Victoria, Keighley FC, Bingley Juniors open age etc )

AFC’s Facebook page suggestst they’re an offshoot of an existing AFC Bingley Sunday team.

Update: AFC Bingley are actually playing on the riverside pitch adjacent to Bingley Congs cricket club this season, about a mile away. Different club entirely. Yes they are the same set-up as the Sunday team.

Not sure why we still have this "various" thread rather than one for each league as for all other parts of the country.

Don't know if the mods can move posts between threads, but i will start a new one for the WRCA anyway.

That riverside ground is going to need a lot of work to get it up to County Amateur standards. They need showers in the changing rooms as well as a full-size railed off pitch!

I thought AFC Bingley might have to play there until their planned ground on Beckfoot Lane was ready.

West Yorkshire league now up on full time.A couple of changes to what we already know: Old Centralians appear to have left their reserves in the league, but Wetherby Athletic first and reserve teams are missing. That's strange as the club tweeted less than 24 hours ago asking if any new players want to join their West Yorks League team. If they have left then I'm assuming that they have dropped into the Harrogate League.

The WRCAL has already lost a club: newcomers Toller FC (from the Bradford Sunday Alliance) have folded after the club imploded. Several of their players are moving on to Thornton United of the YAL. That won't go down well with the YAL committee because Toller had been accepted by the that league and placed in a division for 2018-19 - unfortunately they hadn't told them they had also applied for and been accepted into the WRCAL.

For long enough the County Amateur would only accept established Saturday teams as newcomers.
Hence teams such as Field and Wyke Wanderers went straight from being Sunday sides to the West Yorkshire League.
Times change, but can't help but feel there is some irony here.

Toller are back with us...several players thrown out and Sunday League team only disbanded... that's good news. I'm abroad right now but can see that Halifax and Craven Leagues are now declared...the latter has regained Addingham from the fast shrinking Harrogate League.

The Bradford teams are split across the Yorkshire Amsteur, Craven and Step 7 league's.

What would a Bradford league look like if there was one? Could it host a division excluding the Step 7 teams?

I took a look at this when bored and Bradford could easily host a league and a competitive one at that.

I've excluded step 7 teams and any that are probably still better off in the Craven league (North of Shipley essentially). There is also a load of teams on the border in the Harrogate, YAL and Halifax league who could be involved but I excluded.

Does anyone know why the old Bradford Saturday league died? Was it just that the Craven & Spen Valley League were better run?

Division 1

1 Athletico
1 Bingley Town
1 Broomhill
1 Calverley United FC
1 Carleton Sports Club
1 Cowling First
1 Denholme United
1 Drighlington F.C.
1 FC Sporting Keighley
1 Silsden Whitestar
1 Skipton Town
1 St Bedes F.C.
1 Wibsey F.C.

Division 2

2 Bingley Town FC Reserves
2 Broomhill Reserves
2 Cowling Reserves
2 Crosshills First
2 Fairbank United F.C.
2 Idle
2 Prospect
2 Salts 3rds
2 Silsden Whitestar Reserves
2 Skipton Town Reserves
2 St Bedes F.C. Res
2 Thornton United F.C.
2 Tyersal F.C.

Division 3

3 Bradford Gateway FC
3 Burley Trojans
3 Calverley United FC Res
3 Crosshills Res
3 Drighlington F.C. Res
3 FC Sporting Keighley Reserves
3 Otley Town A Team
3 Salts 4ths Craven
3 St Bedes F.C. 3rd
3 Sutton First
3 St Peters Shipley F.C.
3 Tyersal F.C. Res

Re: [kimbo_king] Various West Yorkshire Leagues... [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

That's an interesting list. You could add Bradley FC & Cononley Sports FC (2 teams) as they are villages between Keighley & Skipton.
Not sure about Burley Trojans - that's further out of Bradford than even Ilkley.
Keighley teams have always tended to go west, into the Craven set-up - Skipton Town & Crosshills in particular would have a long journey to some southerly/easterly parts of Bradford. It's always been a more parochial village-based set-up than the Bradford League.Sadly, problems between some of the teams in the Bradford League led to several moving out to the Spen Valley league. The Yorkshire Old Boy's league's decision to open up to all (as the YAL) has reduced the need for the Bradford & Spen Valley leagues now.
