New Website

Our club website has now been in use for over 15 years and is now due for replacing. The number of users has reduced over the last 5 years in favour of social media (facebook whats app twitter etc ) and over 70% of users are browsing from mobile phones and ipad.

We have decided to use the RFU club website with its links to GMS which stores player registrations club members, fixtures results and other club details.
Please bear with us as we continue to populate the site with information. All new information will now be posted on the new site but the old site will remain open for any archive information. Let Sarah Bake or Dave Butler know if anything is missing or not working.
The new website address is

Presentation Day

This years awards presentation will be held outdoors due to restrictions on numbers inside.

Members are invited to bring their own picnic, blanket/chair and brolly!
Please adhere to social distancing rules and remember to sign in upon entry.
Please adhere to the bar rules which are clearly marked out.
Please do not attend if you have any symptoms of Coronavirus.
Let's celebrate the season with our great players and a promotion to Yorkshire 1!!

Fixtures 20-21

Yorkshire 1 fixtures have been split in two based on geography. The season has been divided into three windows. In the first window you will play each team in your group home and away. Dates have been allocated to these games. If we do not start on time, each week will be automatically moved to the end of the first window.

Example Yorkshire is a 14 team league and so split into 2x7 team groups.
Group games will take 14 rounds. If we are not able to return to play until Round 6, your first game will be the one listed for Round 6 NOT Round 1. After Round 14, the scheduled fixtures for Rounds 1-5 will then be played in order, completing Window 1

Please note: It is not yet confirmed when the season will start – the dates shown may well change as outlined above.

If we complete the first window successfully we will then move to the second which will see you playing teams from the other group in your league once – either home OR away. If there is still time, before the end of the scheduled league season, then the third window will be played – where you will play the reversed fixtures of window 2.
Yorkshire 1 Fixtures 20-21

Some things to note
Dates for windows 2 and 3 will be allocated once we are able to start the competition.<[p>

No decision has yet been made about RFU Cup competitions. If only the first window is possible a playoff between the leaders of the two groups will be staged to decide the league winner. The fixtures will not be placed on GMS, and thus filter through to club websites, until a start date is confirmed. No decision has been made on the effect of this season on promotion/relegation for the 2021-22 season
