Footnotes

  • Manningham was a rugby league football club based in Manningham, Bradford, the first ever champions of the Rugby Football League (then known as the Northern Rugby Football Union) in its first ever season. After seven seasons of rugby league, the club switched codes to Association football in 1903. The club originally played at a field in Whetley Hill, known as Carlisle Road. In the new competition's first season, Manningham finished on top of the ladder, becoming history's first rugby league champions. In 1886, the club moved to Valley Parade. On the 29th May 1903, at the 23rd annual meeting of Manningham F.C. the committee decided to leave the rugby league code and switch to association football, becoming Bradford City A.F.C.
