The Middlesex County Football League is a football competition based in England loosely drawing teams from the central, northern and western parts of Greater London. The league was founded in 1984 and initially had only one division, although it has since expanded greatly. It currently has a total of five divisions – four for first teams and a division for reserve teams. The Premier Division sits at step 7 (or level 11) of the National League System. It is a feeder to the Combined Counties Football League and the Hellenic Football League. The league is currently sponsored by Cherry Red Books.

History

The Middlesex County League was founded in 1984 as a single division. One year later, the league expanded to include a second division (Division One). In 1991 the league added a third, Division Two, discontinued during 1996-2002 but on its reinstatement a fourth was also created (Division Three). For the 2006–07 season the league added a fifth level and the fourth level was regionalized. The divisions were named Division Three East and Division Three West. A further re-organisation in 2007–08 saw growth and the league break into six divisions: Division One acquired its split (into East and West), Division Three East was renamed Division Three, whilst Division Three West was renamed Division Three (Hounslow & District). In the next season both Division Threes were dropped.

Former members to progress through the pyramid are: Brook House, Hanworth Villa, CB Hounslow United, Rayners Lane, North Greenford United, Sutton Common Rovers, South Kilburn, Neasden Foundation, Bethnal Green United, Bedfont Sports, Hayes Gate, Southall and FC Romania.

The league has the Latin motto ‘is est non iustus a venatus suus a res vita quod nex’ translating to 'it's not just a game it's a matter of life and death'.
