The 1899-1900 Woodhouse Cup competition was contested between Bradford, Huddersfield, Leeds and Sheffield, and was eventually won by Bradford.  Each team played each other team twice, once at home and once away, meaning there were to be 12 matches in all.

 

The following are just 7 of the 12 match result match (subject to some elusive adjudication results).  More matches may be added if/when they come to hand.
