Harrogate And District Junior 'b' League
The Harrogate And District Junior 'b' League is an amateur football league for boys and girls aged 7-16 in the Harrogate area of North Yorkshire, England.
The league was founded in 1920 by a group of local football enthusiasts. The league's first season consisted of just four teams, but it has grown steadily ever since.
In the early years, the league was dominated by teams from Harrogate Town and Harrogate Railway Athletic. However, in recent years, teams from other towns and villages in the Harrogate area have started to compete more successfully.
The league is divided into three divisions: Division One, Division Two, and Division Three. Each division consists of 12 teams.
The teams play each other twice, once at home and once away. The top two teams in each division at the end of the season are promoted to the next division, while the bottom two teams are relegated to the previous division.
The league also runs a number of cup competitions, including the Junior Challenge Cup, the Junior League Cup, and the Junior Knock-Out Cup.
The Junior Challenge Cup is the most prestigious cup competition in the league. It is open to all teams in the league.
The Junior League Cup is open to the top four teams in each division.
The Junior Knock-Out Cup is open to all teams in the league.
