Ipswich Sunday Morning League
The Ipswich Sunday Morning League is an amateur football league in Ipswich, England. It was founded in 1922 and currently has over 100 teams competing in various divisions. The league is affiliated to the Suffolk County FA.
The Ipswich Sunday Morning League was founded in 1922 by a group of local footballers who wanted to play football on Sundays. The first season saw just six teams competing, but the league has grown steadily over the years and now has over 100 teams.
The league has been home to some talented players over the years, including former England internationals Paul Gascoigne and Terry Butcher. Gascoigne played for the Westgate Wolves team in the 1980s, while Butcher played for the Ipswich Wanderers team in the 1970s.
The Ipswich Sunday Morning League currently has five divisions: Premier Division, Division One, Division Two, Division Three, and Division Four. The Premier Division is the top division, followed by Division One, Division Two, and so on.
The teams are promoted and relegated between divisions each season based on their finishing position. The top two teams in the Premier Division are promoted to the Eastern Counties League, while the bottom two teams in Division One are relegated to Division Two.
The Ipswich Sunday Morning League also runs a number of cups, including the League Cup, the Challenge Cup, and the Presidents Cup. The League Cup is the most prestigious cup in the league, and is competed for by all teams in the Premier Division and Division One.
The Challenge Cup is open to all teams in the league, and the Presidents Cup is for teams in Divisions Two, Three, and Four.
