Otley? No not Dick Dastardlyâ€™s canine sidekick... itâ€™s a pretty market town in West Yorkshire and one that Olympic silver medallist Lizzie Armitstead calls home. As does former England Rugby Captain and royal-squeeze Mike Tindall.
This delightful place is a thousand years-old and the town was recorded in the Doomsday Book back in 1086 â€“ variously as Ottanlege, Otelai or Othelia. Otley has a rather good indie band called The Chevin, is often mentioned in Emmerdale and (apparently) ITVâ€™s hit 1990s TV series Heartbeat was filmed there.
Itâ€™s also home to Otley Town which plays in the West Yorkshire Premier League, these days a Step 7 league which feeds into the North East Counties League.
Otley Town is one of the oldest amateur football clubs in the country tracing its roots back to the 1930s â€“ the current club was formed by a merger of Dawson-Payne & Elliot FC and Otley FC in 1972.
The team has had a brilliant time recently; in 2012 the first team won the District Cup for the third consecutive year and they also managed an impressive fourth place in the league. Otley Townâ€™s Club President is Bill Lumsden who we understand can these days be spotted wearing an Appleberry Otley Town scarf. Cheers Bill!
