Myton Warriors are an amateur rugby league club[1] based in the Myton area of Kingston upon Hull, East Riding of Yorkshire. They compete in the BARLA National Conference League Premier Division,[2][3] the top tier of amateur rugby league in England, and the fourth over all tier of rugby league in England. The Warriors have local rivalries with Skirlaugh,[4] West Hull,[5] East Hull[6] and the Hull Dockers.[7]

History and formation[edit]

The Myton Warriors were formed in 1997 after previously being called Bay Horse A.R.L.F.C., playing in Division 1 of the Hull & District League. They made the second round of the 1998 Challenge Cup, after defeating the London Skolars 12–10.[8]

The Myton committee were approached by the Northern Dairies youth section (a rugby union club in the Hull area) in 1999, who proposed a merger between the Open-age and youth teams from both clubs. This merger happened a year later.[9]

Both club's committees 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 grounds 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 seven 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 2006/07 season, only the second cup of their history. In the 2017 Challenge Cup, Myton made the third round for the first time, losing to Doncaster.[10]
