I. M. Brown Shield

 

This was contested between eight teams, in two regional sections, “West” and “East”, with a play-off between section winners, to determine the overall winner.

 

There were five teams in the “West” section, each playing each other twice, home and away, except that Sheffield and Dewbury played a single match (won by Sheffield) for double points.
