Following the end of the First World War in November 1918 more and more clubs were looking to return to action.
Thus it was decided to abandon the ongoing War Season and play shortened county seasons instead for the remainder of what would of been 1918-19.
The Lancashire Cup would also return but the Challenge Cup would only return in the following season.
