Spartan South Midlands Football League

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Spartan South Midlands Football League is an English football league for the area of Hertfordshire , north-western Greater London , parts of Buckinghamshire and southern Bedfordshire .


Today's league is an amalgamation of several football leagues, the oldest of which, the Bedfordshire County League , originated in 1922. After expanding the catchment area in 1929 to include surrounding counties , the league changed its name to the South Midlands League for the first time . In 1997, the league merged with the London Spartan League , whereby the catchment area expanded again considerably and changed the name again to today's name Spartan South Midlands Football League .

Game class structure

The league currently organizes three divisions integrated into the National League system . The highest of these three divisions, the Premier Division , is on the ninth level of the league system. After the current main sponsor, the league is also currently known as the Molten Spartan South Midlands Football League Premier Division . Division One and Division Two are located on the tenth and eleventh levels of the league system .

The Premier Division champion is promoted to the Isthmian League . The worst clubs in Division Two are relegated to play in various sub-regional football leagues. The league also organizes two other divisions for the reserve teams of the participating clubs, Reserve Division One and Reserve Division Two, which, however, as is common in England, are not integrated into the league system.
