Harry Dewhurst Memorial League
The Harry Dewhurst Memorial League is an amateur football league based in the Greater Manchester area of England. It was founded in 1922 in memory of Harry Dewhurst, a local footballer who was killed in action during World War I.
The league was founded in 1922 by a group of local footballers who wanted to create a league in memory of Harry Dewhurst. The league initially consisted of 10 teams, and it has since grown to include over 50 teams.
The league has been played at various levels over the years, but it is currently in the eighth tier of the English football pyramid. The league champions are promoted to the North West Counties Football League Division One, while the bottom two teams are relegated to the Bolton & District Football League.
The league is divided into two divisions, Division One and Division Two. Each division consists of 16 teams, and each team plays each other team twice, once at home and once away.
The season runs from September to May, and the league champions are promoted to the North West Counties Football League Division One, while the bottom two teams are relegated to the Bolton & District Football League.
The current season is the 2022-23 season. The current Division One champions are Heys, and the current Division Two champions are Clayton Park Rangers.
