History and formation[edit]

Myton Warriors were formed in 1997 after previously being called Bay Horse ARLFC, playing from the Division 1 of the Hull&District League. The Myton committee were approached by the Northern Dairies youth section (a rugby union club in the Hull area)in 1999, who proposed a merge between the Open-age and youth teams from both clubs. This merge happened a year later.

Both club's committee's merged and formed the club's current committee, after 3 years of playing from a local high school. Marist Rugby Union club approached the club in 1999 and offered to share their facilities with Myton. The Warriors have played at the Marist Rugby Union club for the last 16 years. The facilities have now been developed to house Rugby League, Union and football games on Saturdays and Sundays in winter, and cricket in the summer. It is now administrated by a new committee in the name of the Marist Sporting Club in all sections.

Myton competed in the Yorkshire League for 7 years and gained promotion in 2005/06 after they were Senior Division One champions. The following season Myton finished second in the league and runners-up in the play-offs. They also won the Yorkshire cup in the 06/07 season, only the second cup of their history.
