The clubs Second and Third teams compete in the York Minster Engineering Football league which as it's name suggests, centres around the city of York but also takes in opponents from Selby, Malton etc. The club have competed in the York League for many years and had there most successful spell in the late 90s/early 2000s when they went on to win the Premier League two years in a row, along with four League Cups and one York FA Cup between 1998 and 2004.
All the teams play on Saturday afternoons with occasional night games under the clubs floodlights.

The club also fields a team in the Northern Under 19 Alliance (formerly the Northern Youth Academy League) with matches taking place on a midweek evening. The league is a very competitive league consisting of four divisions stretching from the Humber estuary to the Pennines. Pocklington compete in the North Division along side teams such as Pickering Town, Scarborough Athletic and Selby Town.
