Brighouse Town AFC play at the Yorkshire Payments Stadium.
Brighouse Town AFC play in Division One East of the Northern Premier League. Before moving to Green Lane in Hove Edge, the club used to play at Woodhouse Recreation Ground. Green Lane was turned into homes, so the club moved to St. Giles Road, where it has stayed ever since. The stadium can hold up to 1,000 people, and fans of all ages are welcome.
When we say that Yorkshire Payments loves Brighouse Town, we mean it. In 2019, our MD, James Howard, became the official Chairman of the football club.
In 2018, Yorkshire Payments did a full rebranding, which meant that all of the stadium branding had to be changed to match the company’s new brand identity. The games and the stadium had to stop because of Covid-19. Now that our stadium has a new look, we’re excited to see their fans and players again.
Brighouse Town Football Club’s History
In 1963, the Blakeborough Valve Company set up the club as its work team.
The same year, they joined the Huddersfield Works League. They went on to win the league title in 1966–67, 1968–69, 1973–74, and 1974–75. In 1968–69, they also won the League Cup and the Halifax District Cup. They moved to the West Riding County Amateur League in 1975.
After the company went out of business in 1988, the club changed its name to what it is now. They won Division One in 1988–89, then the Premier Division in 1990–91 and the West Riding County Challenge Cup in 1991–92. Then, in 1994–95 and 1995–96, they won back-to-back Premier Division titles and the League Cup and the Bob Wedgeworth Memorial Trophy. In 2000–01 and 2001–02, they won the Premier Division again. Even though the club only came in eighth in the Northern Counties East League in 2007–08, it was moved up to Division One. After coming in second place in Division One in 2009–10, they moved up to the Premier Division.
Brighouse won the Premier Division in 2013–14 and moved to the Northern Premier League’s Division One North. As part of a league-wide change before the 2018–19 season, the club was moved to Division One East. They finished third, which got them into the play-offs for promotion. In the semifinals, they beat Sheffield 3–1; in the final, they beat Pontefract Collieries 3–0. Brighouse was one of the two clubs that didn’t get promoted because only five of the seven play-off winners were promoted based on their points-per-game ranking over the season.
Before moving to Green Lane in Hove Edge, the club used to play at Woodhouse Recreation Ground. The club moved to St. Giles Road when Green Lane was turned into homes. The stadium can hold up to 1,000 people, 100 of whom are seated and 200 of whom are undercover.
