Yorkshire Cup competition has been revamped for the coming season, top 8 teams at Level 3,4 and 5 will play for the Cup. Yorkshire Shield will be played by the next 16 ranked teams in Level 5, 6 and 7 and the Silver Trophy will be played by teams below that. Proposed that ties be played on non league weekends as previously.

I'd wait until they formally release the alloted dates before assuming.
The first free weekend isn't until the 2nd November.

Probably a good idea, the principle of the cup competition is just for this season as it's the 150th anniversary of YRFU. The deadline has passed(believed to be 25th June) where teams could opt out of competition if desired given the amount of withdrawals and byes in previous years. Would be interesting to see if any of the top 8 have opted out, think that would put Ilkley and Sandal into Cup draw and not in the Shield (if 2 teams withdrew, that's how I understand it) with other teams being slotted in accordingly.

Dinnington finished above Middlesbrough and Salem in the league but have been put in to a lower cup competition.

Please explain Fredsbar?

I asked the same question.
Was told it is based on cup competition record.
