Haworth won.

Thanks to Bob Armstrong for the photo and for providing information and names.

Update: We had the photo showing as 1946, Rob Grillo, local football historian has kindly supplied the following information:

"The photo is actually more likely to be from 1947. The shield in the photo is the 'Butterfield Shield' , which was awarded to the winners of the now defunct Keighley & District League, which Haworth won at the end of the 1946-47 season."
