Gloucestershire County Women's Football League
The Gloucestershire County Women's Football League is an amateur women's association football competition run by the Gloucestershire County Football Association. It consists of three divisions and sits at level 7 of the women's football pyramid in England.
The league was founded in 1997 and currently has over 50 clubs affiliated to it. The teams are divided into three divisions: Premier Division, Division 1, and Division 2. The season runs from September to April, with each team playing each other team in their division twice.
The Gloucestershire County Women's Football League was founded in 1997 by a group of women who wanted to provide more opportunities for women to play football in the county. The league started with just four teams, but it has grown steadily over the years and now has over 50 clubs affiliated to it.
The league has been very successful in promoting women's football in Gloucestershire. In recent years, several teams from the league have gone on to play in higher divisions, including Cheltenham Town Ladies, who currently play in the FA Women's National League Division 1 South West.
The current season of the Gloucestershire County Women's Football League is underway. The Premier Division is currently being led by Cheltenham Town Ladies, who are unbeaten in their first five games. Other teams in contention for the title include Longlevens Ladies, Abbeymead Ladies, and Bishops Cleeve Ladies.
The Division 1 title is also up for grabs, with a number of teams in contention. The current leaders are Mangotsfield United Ladies, but they are closely followed by Frampton United Ladies and Stroud Town Ladies.
