Combined Counties League history 1978-2002 - re-saved


The Combined Counties League developed out of the former Surrey Senior League in 1978. In an effort to widen its catchment area and stabilise its membership, the organisation went through a difficult initial period in which finding a name acceptable to various authorities proved awkward to say the least. Having had the titles ‘Home Counties Football League’, ‘Surrey Senior Football League’ and ‘Corinthian Football League’ rejected for one reason or another, the title ‘Combined Counties League’ was finally accepted and adopted in 1979.

 

From small beginnings the Combined Counties League grew gradually in size and, by 1983 had stabilised at 16-18 members. A year later the league joined the non-league pyramid, which strengthened its status and this was further secured when the competition became the first ‘feeder’ to the Isthmian League. A series of sponsorship agreements followed as the CCL grew in strength as a competition. In 2003 an F.A.-backed merger with the Surrey County Senior League, which had operated from 1982 to 2003, saw the Combined Counties League develop into a 2-section, 40-club competition, at Steps 5 and 6 of the Non-League Pyramid. The stability and status of the competition helped lead to a new sponsorship being found in 2005 with Cherry Red.

 

Thanks to Russell Kirkwood for pointing out some errors relating to the names of the ‘Surrey league’ mentioned above and also for providing the correct versions of these.

 

Final tables for the first two seasons are shown below – please note the change of name.

Over the next ten years there were a few changes to the competition, with numbers increasing slightly, the introduction of 3 points for a win and an experimentation with a 2-section set-up, which was abandoned after one season.  By the time the 1990s arrived the league was a fairly stable and well-established one.

Lion Sports left at the end of the season, but four clubs joined the competition – Alton Town, Chobham, Cove and Frimley Green. It was decided to divide the league into Eastern and Western sections with 11 clubs in each. This appears a little odd, as teams now had only 20 league fixtures each, while a single division of 22 clubs would have faced 42 league games, only six

*On March 24th, Frimley Green, having played 29 matches, were forced to resign from the competition. The club’s final seven fixtures were all awarded to their opponents. The reasons for this rather odd turn of events are not clear, but ‘Green’ were allowed to rejoin the Combined Counties League for the 1989-1990 campaign.

 

Malden Vale left the competition. British Aerospace (Weybridge) became ‘Weybridge Town’.

Chobham, Cove and Weybridge Town all left at the end of the season. Ashford Town (Middlesex) and Sandhurst Town were both admitted to the Combined Counties League.

 

Between the 1990-1991 campaign and the start of the 1998-1999 season, 16 clubs joined the

Combined Counties League, while 12 teams left. This regular turnover in membership was also

reflected in the repeated change in the size of the competition, with the league only playing

successive seasons with the same number of clubs once. The eight seasons below saw the

title won by just 3 clubs – Farnham Town, Peppard and Ashford Town (Middlesex). On five

occasions, the champions finished well ahead of the rest, while the team finishing bottom of

the pile was usually cast well adrift before the end of the campaign. The Combined Counties

League had only a single division throughout these years.

No second game between Farnham Town and Southall was actually completed. It appears that Southall were unable to raise a team, so the points (and a win) were awarded to Farnham Town. This information was passed to the site by Russell Kirkwood of Camberley Town F.C. In 2002 Cranleigh left the Combined Counties League, which was joined by AFC Wimbledon, Frimley Green and North Greenford United.
