HistoryEdit

The Great Western Suburban League was founded in 1904, drawing its membership from the Home counties to the west of London. The league was generally considered by clubs to be a stepping stone to the Spartan League. After the 1926–27 season, all the member clubs left, with a new constitution of teams being formed for the following season. Following the 1930–31 season, in which only seven teams competed, the league folded.[1]
