Guess there are a few rivalries out there, but for me I would probably list as follows.
1. Hull city I know we haven't played each other in a meaningful match for a number of years now and they probably won't see us rivals now, they just hate Leeds. But for me history is not forgotten and plenty of run-ins in the past with their fans still remain in the memory bank.
2. Scunthorpe United. Both clubs of similar stature but I guess rivalry is more a geographical thing but I did and always will feel a special buzz when playing them, god do I want to beat them.
3. Lincoln City. Pretty much the same reasons as above with scunny, love the atmosphere and tenseness during the game and it is just magical when you score against and beat them.

If I am being honest a lot of it stems from the late eighties/early nineties when there used to be a certain amount of trouble at these matches. The atmosphere used to be intense and it was serious rivalry off the pitch as well as on it. Back in the day that was just as exciting as the football. And no I was not or am a hooligan but like most young adults at the time found it interesting and this added very much to just a geographical rivalry, it was as much about larger gates and atmosphere, that is what creates a rivalry and these 3 will always be classed by myself as rivals,
I hold no hatred towards any of these but when playing them you would give anything for a win.

Yorkie teams

Used to dislike west brom a lot, guessing it's because of the Buckley saga. Always remember bit of trouble with Peterborough, Northampton and tranmere.

“To put it in gentleman’s terms if you’ve been out for a night and you’re looking for a young lady and you pull one, some weeks they’re good looking and some weeks they’re not the best. Our performance today would have been not the best looking bird but at least we got her in the taxi. She weren’t the best looking lady we ended up taking home but she was very pleasant and very nice, so thanks very much, let’s have a coffee”

(1) Tom and Jerry
(2) Capitalism and Communism
(3) Gladstone and Disraeli

Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

Cumnock, Glenafton, Irvine Meadow.

No attempt at ethical or social seduction can eradicate from my heart a deep burning hatred of the Tory party. So far as I'm concerned they're lower than vermin. Aneurin Bevan.

Scunthorpe, Hull, with Barnsley a distant third.

At the moment I would say it was the council over the last 20 years. Such a long time as past with no real backing, with friends like that who needs enemies.

Scunthorpe. That's about it really. When we drew them in the cup last year the atmosphere was amazing.

Hull I'm not so fussed about. Being a Yorkshire Mariner I'm actually quite pleased there's a team from Yorkshire and/or Humberside in the top flight.

Lincoln I guess, I don't like them but it's not a derby that fills me with the buzz that a match against Scunny does.

I quite like seeing Hull and Scunny lose, but it hardly ruins my weekend if they don't.

In the Conference the only team I dislike is Gateshead.

At the moment it's Barnet and any team stopping us from getting out of this shitehole.

Being of a certain age, it was always the Yorkie club games that gave me the greatest buzz. The Sheffields and Barnsley's of this world, plus Scunny cos they are Scunny.
