We are the pride of all Yorkshire

Is Middlesbrough in Yorkshire? Who cares any more?

After the Smog Monsters’ relegation, the debate over whether they’re a rubbish Yorkshire side (as they were seen traditionally) or a rubbish North Eastern side (as they are happy to be portrayed nowadays) becomes irrelevant.

And with a woeful Sheffield United falling well short of Premier League quality in the play-off final yesterday, it confirms what everyone has alway known in their hearts anyway – Hull City is Yorkshire’s finest team.

* The best league team in Yorkshire (17th in the Premier League).
* The best FA Cup team in Yorkshire (quarter finalists).
* The best reserves team in Yorkshire (9th in the Reserves Premier League North).
* The best youth team in Yorkshire (2nd in North East Youth Alliance).

No Yorkshire team fared better in any of these competitions.

And with Hull Kingston Rovers currently the county’s top Rugby League side, who can argue that Hull is the sporting capital of Yorkshire?

  2. I think Hull is a huge successful sporting city. Despite Hull City’s relegation, we have Hull FC and Hull Kingston Rovers which are two big successful rugby teams, and then we have The Stingray’s which are a renound Hockey Team.

    I used to live in Hull, however I now reside in Hornsea Freeport. But I’m still Hull and Proud.
