The CMS Yorkshire League was a series of rugby league divisions in the traditional county of Yorkshire.

The league was run by the British Amateur Rugby League Association (BARLA). Teams from the Yorkshire league could apply for election to the National Conference League if they meet minimum criteria.

History[edit]

Following the formation of British Amateur Rugby League Association in 1973, local District Leagues got together and pooled their resources. The Yorkshire league was formed by a merger of Castleford, Heavy Woollen, Leeds, Wakefield and York districts. There was also a West Yorkshire Sunday league formed by Castleford, Doncaster, Heavy Woollen and Leeds districts. This league became the Yorkshire Sunday League in 1994-95 before going defunct after 1995-96.

In 2012 the CMS Yorkshire league folded and all remaining teams were accepted by the Pennine League.
