League and cup schedule 2022

League and cup schedule 2022

The  Management Board can confirm that the 2022 league season will runs from Saturday, April 16 until September 10.

With the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations bringing about a change to the Spring Bank Holiday - this is will now be on Thursday and Friday  - the traditional Monday programme for the Premier Division will be replaced by a set of fixtures on Sunday, May 22. 

The Premier Division will be completed on September 3 which will allow the league champions to compete in the Yorkshire Premier League Play-Offs which have semi-finals on September 10 and a final on September 17. 

The schedule for the cup competitions has also been confirmed. Following requests from a number of clubs, this has been adjusted to allow the Gordon Rigg Priestley Shield to precede the Gordon Rigg Priestley Cup and Gordon Rigg Jack Hampshire Cup in the first three rounds.

The final of the Gordon Rigg Priestley Cup has been brought forward two weeks and will be played on Sunday, August 14.  The Gordon Rigg Jack Hampshire Cup final is set for August 21 with the Gordon Rigg Priestley Shield final on September 4.

Clubs will be emailed shortly to secure the entries for the Gordon Rigg Priestley Shield and the two Gordon Rigg T20 Cup competitions.

Once the entries have been secured the draws for all the cup competitions will be released.
