Sydenhams Football League
The Sydenhams Football League is an English regional men's football league in southern England. Its members are primarily from Hampshire and Dorset, but clubs from adjoining counties such as Wiltshire, Berkshire, and the Isle of Wight are also eligible.
The league was founded in 1978 as the Wessex League, and was renamed the Sydenhams Football League in 2019. It currently consists of two divisions, the Premier Division and Division One.
The Premier Division is at Step 6 of the National League System (NLS), while Division One is at Step 7. The champions of the Premier Division are promoted to the Southern League Division One South, while the runners-up enter a play-off with the runners-up of Division One for a place in the Southern League.
The bottom two clubs in the Premier Division are relegated to Division One, while the top two clubs in Division One are promoted.
