Few changes to the Wakey league:

- Athletico are no longer in the Prem but Real Moor are. Not sure if this is a name change or not.

- FC Gawthorpe are no Crown Gawthorpe

- AFC Ossett are either out or renamed Ossett Common Rovers

- Thornesians have joined from the Yorkshire Amateur League (Presume the 4th team)

Athletico HM /Real Moor is not the same club as Athletico from the Spen valley league.

Cheers Rob

Any idea who Athletico HM / Real Moor are? Very quick name change? Presume they are known given they are in the Premier Division////

Too many Moors to guess Smile

Real Moor look like a Leeds team so I've no idea where they have come from. As suspected, AFC Ossett have indeed morphed into Ossett Common Rovers.

Looks like the 'Moor' is Halton Moor then and the old name of 'Athletico HM' was in fact Athletico Halton Moor!

Maybe a offshoot from Halton Moor or one of the old Seacroft teams.

Still not really sure what (OCR) refers to for the Prince Of Wales team (Other than the sponsorship). Are they the same club as Osset Common Rovers?

Don't OCR and Prince of Wales share a ground. There could be a rule that whoever plays on that ground has to have OCR in their name title. That's not uncommon on private grounds. For example, any team that plays on the Keighley Road ground at Silsden HAS to be called Silsden AFC.

I think the league as a whole will shrink even further. I know one of the WRCA Prem clubs have approached the WYAFL about joining next season. They said other clubs have enquired as well. They were told that if they joined then they'd be placed in the WYAFL2. They told me that they're happy with this, because they've been losing players to teams in that league. The players deem it a stronger league & more of a challenge.

I think that is the growing perception of both leagues.

Hall Green moving (with their chairman on the board) was a big move.

Which club did you hear about Windy?

Huddersfield YMCA, they said it was part of a 4 year plan. Which includes getting there ground upto step 6 standard. The rugby club are on board now. So they'll be able to gradually improve the pitch they're on. This will include floodlights & a stand. But no chance of using the rugby clubs main pitch(which already has the suitable ground grading).

Talks of merging the WYL & WRCAL have been on and off for years. Even the WYL is feeling the pinch, with only 12 teams in their division two (and, I feel, not all of those will finish the season). I would love for both to continue in their own right, but a merger would be best of they weren't as it would be unfair for premier div WRCAL clubs to have to seek what would effectively be a two-step demotion. Interestingly the YAL is growing in prestige, especially since it dropped it's 'Old Boys League' title.

The FA are looking at all the steps in their review of the pyramid. This will include the number of leagues at every step. I can see a few changes at step 7 & a merger between these two leagues is always a possibility.

Littleborough (ex Rochdale League) have appeared in the constitutions of both Huddersfield and Lancashire Amateur Leagues. Seems they are running two teams in each ? I don't think that's likely as they only had one Saturday team last year. The two Huddersfield League sides haven't been given any home fixtures yet (and don't have any players registered according to the full time site), while the Lancashire Amateur League shows their teams playing at Firgrove in Rochdale.

Littleborough's other team, Fothergill & Whittles have put their two teams in the Huddersfield League. They do actually play in Littleborough.

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

Cheers for that. If they are running four teams, with two from F&W, then that's an awful lot of football being played in and about Littleborough next season :) I have a feeling that if Littleborough FC are running four sides then somewhere along the line they've absorbed another local club - wouldn't be surprised given that many of last years Rochdale League teams have 'disappeared'.

Ih had completely escaped my mind that Falcon FC were also from Littleborough -they were based at the cricket club / sports centre so my bet is that they have merged with AFC Littleborough to form Littleborough FC.

.....and another well established Yorkshire Dales club has gone. Craven League Gargrave FC have followed Embsay and folded due to a lack of players.
