The Teesside League Division 1 is a feeder to the Step 6 Northern League Division One. The league is affiliated to the North Riding County FA.[1]

History[edit]

The league was founded in 1891 and has held a league competition every season since, with the exception of the two World Wars. Clubs compete in three cup competitions; the MacMillan Bowl, the R T Raine Trophy and the Lou Moore Memorial Trophy. The R T Raine Trophy is competed by the League Champions and MacMillan Bowl winners from the previous season.[2] Since 2002-03 season, the teams in the second Division have competed for the A Burness Plate except for the 2008-09 season.[3] As the league is affiliated to the North Riding County FA, the teams are eligible to enter the North Riding FA Senior Cup, though not all do.[4]

The league has now ceased and been effectively replaced by the North Riding Football League for 2017-18 season.
