  Wharfedale Triangle League Premier Division 2019-20, line-up as follows:

  Leeds City Rovers, HFFC, Myrtle Park, Salts, Keighley Athletic, Burton Leonard, Shadwell United - all present and correct from last season.

  Hampsthwaite United have resigned from the league (gone to Saturday football, I think); Yeadon Athletic and Shipley Town were relegated.

  Promoted from Championship Division as of right: FC United of Baildon and Yeadon FC.

  Also promoted: Rawdon FC (run by our former player Steve Gaines) and Eldwick (who we played in the League Cup last season), who finished 3rd and 4th respectively in the Champinship.

  Finally, one new team (to Wharfedale anyway), our neighbours Horsforth Saints, who were in the Combination Premier Division (ie, second tier) last season.

  So 12 teams in total, meaning 22 league games assuming everyone stays the course (4 more than last season).
