During the 1960s seven of the players were selected for the Yorkshire County Team and the captain, David Higham played for England. The name became Leeds Hockey Club and it was based at Horsforth School for a time with seven mens' teams and 5 ladies' teams. Leeds Hockey Club is now (2017) based at the Weetwood Sports Park.
