Apart from the city of Sheffield, Yorkshire was Rugby country. Professional Association teams began to emerge at the turn of the century, but public interest largely remained with Rugby. This is illustrated by the relative attendances in Huddersfield as late as 1919. Town's average attendance was around 4,000 whilst the Rugby club drew crowds of 10,000.
Sheffield of course held a  special place in the development of organised football (pre dating Association), and the emergence of 2 great clubs was a reflection of the huge popularity of the Association game in the city when the rules had effectively become unified.
Let's look at the League careers of the Yorkshire based clubs in the pre 1937 era:
