Yorkshire Division One is an English rugby union division, the seventh tier of the domestic competition, and the top level for local rugby union in Yorkshire. The champions are automatically promoted to North 1 East, a division with a wider geographical area which also encompasses north east England. The runners-up participates in a playoff against the 2nd place team from the equivalent regional league, Durham/Northumberland 1, for promotion to North 1 East. The bottom two clubs are relegated to Yorkshire 2.

Each season a team from Yorkshire 1 is picked to take part in the RFU Intermediate Cup - a national competition for clubs at level 7.

Notes

  1. ^ Despite finishing third in the 2000-01 Durham/Northumberland league, Percy Park went into the promotion playoff instead of runners up, Durham City.[23]
  2. ^ Scarborough won by default as Durham City were unable to raise a team.[40]
  3. ^ Bridlington have actually won Yorkshire 1 twice - once by their 1st XV, the other by the 2nd XV (Bridlington Mariners).
