Sheffield Sub-Site

 

For 1900-1901, the previous season’s four entrants were joined by Hull.  The 1900-1901 Woodhouse Cup competition was thus contested between Bradford, Huddersfield, Hull, Leeds and Sheffield, and was eventually won by Leeds.  Each team played each other team twice, once at home and once away, meaning there were to be 20 matches in all.

 

The following are just 11 of the 20 match results (subject to some elusive adjudication results).  More matches may be added if/when they come to hand.
