Thornhill Trojans have been admitted to the National Conference League for the 2015 season.
Thornhill contacted the NCL management following the withdrawal of Hindley and after passing a robust vetting process, the Trojans were voted to be included by a significant majority of member clubs.
Thornhill will start their campaign in Division Three, which begins in March, with their second team entering the Yorkshire Men’s League.
NCL chairman Trevor Hunt said: “We are delighted to welcome Thornhill Trojans back into the National Conference. They will be a welcome addition and are clearly a popular club amongst the league membership.”
Fixtures for the 2015 competition will be released on Sunday December 15.
