Yorkshire Post - YP Magazine - - Front Page -

The York­shire league restarted from its Christ­mas break last week. In the top di­vi­sion Wood­house Cup, the big guns showed no signs of a fes­tive han­gover. York RI A scored a 5.5-2.5 win over Rose For­grove A, Sh­effield A crushed Calderdale A 6-2, Leeds CCCC A out­gunned Hud­der­s­field by the same score and Brad­ford A thrashed Har­ro­gate A 7-1. At the other end of the ta­ble, Sh­effield B scored a vic­tory in their rel­e­ga­tion bat­tle against Al­wood­ley A. Hull DCA A nar­rowly over­came York RI C 4.5-3.5.

It was a sim­i­lar story in the IM Brown. Brad­ford Cen­tral de­feated Brad­ford B 8-0 and York RI B won

7-1 against Hull DCA B. Wake­field A squeaked past Sh­effield C to third.

In the only fix­ture in the Sil­ver Rook, York RI D beat Wake­field B to move level on points with Don­caster.

The next round of fix­tures take place on Fe­bru­ary 4.
