South East Counties Youth Championship
The South East Counties Youth Championship is an amateur football league for youth teams in the South East of England. It is currently sponsored by Puma.
The league was founded in 1951 as the Middlesex Youth Invitation Cup. It was renamed the South East Counties Youth Football League in 1964. In 1997, the FA Premier Youth League was created, and many of the top clubs in the South East switched to that competition. The South East Counties Youth Football League continued for one more season, but then folded.
In 2019, the league was revived under the new name of the South East Counties Youth Championship. The current champions are the Kent FA.
The South East Counties Youth Championship is a league for under-18 teams. There are two divisions, Division One and Division Two. Each division has 12 teams. The teams play each other twice, once home and once away. The top two teams in each division at the end of the season are promoted to the next division, and the bottom two teams are relegated to the previous division.
