History of the Red Triangle Division 1
The Red Triangle Division 1 was an amateur football league in West Yorkshire, England. It was founded in 1920 and disbanded in 2014.
The league was formed with only three teams, but it quickly grew in popularity. By 1921, it had over 100 teams and had as many as eight divisions in its pomp.
The league was known for its competitive and close-fought games. It also produced some talented players who went on to play professional football, including Farsley Celtic and Yorkshire Amateur.
The league began to decline in the 1990s due to a number of factors, including the rise of Sunday football, clubs moving to a higher level, a lack of grounds and facilities, and rising costs.
The Red Triangle Division 1 finally disbanded in 2014 after it was unable to attract enough teams to compete.
