From the publisher:
Yorkshire Football: A History is the story of club football, but from a distinctly white rose viewpoint.
It captures intriguing, surprising and tragic events, and is filled with inspired characters from every major team in the county, from the origins of the code through to its current situation.
Club football was born in Sheffield in 1857. Since when, Yorkshire has been at the heart of the sport's development; its clubs and administrators helping to mould and shape Britain's most popular game.
Far more than a mere statistical chronicle, this book is an enduring account of how Yorkshire football has blazed a trail through the last 150 or so years.
The triumphs and tribulations of every professional team from the old three Ridings are featured - from Hull to Barnsley, Halifax to Doncaster, Leeds to Rotherham and all points beyond.
Offering a unique perspective, this is the history of football from the vantage points of the Moors, Dales and Wolds of England's largest - and proudest - county.
