Huddersfield RL: A Lasting Legacy Project, carried out by Huddersfield Community Trust
This archive contains materials from individuals collected by the Huddersfield Communtity Trust for the Huddersfield Rugby League: A Lasting Legacy project. The materials reflect, commemorate and celebrate some significant anniversaries in Huddersfield's Rugby League history, including the 150th anniversary of the birth of the Huddersfield club in 2014, and the centenary of the club’s Team of all Talents, one of only three teams to win all four available trophies in the same season - 1914-15. The project also marked the anniversary of the start of the First World War and its impact on the people of Huddersfield as well as raising the profile of Huddersfield as the birthplace of rugby league at the George Hotel in 1895.

The archive contains letters, programmes, magazines, yearbooks, commemorate booklets and brochures, scrapbooks and photographs, both contemporary and commemorative, that reflect the stories of individuals and the wider team involved with Rugby League in the Kirklees area. It also contains some china cups and saucers belonging to the old Huddersfield Cricket and Athletic Club.
