A-Z Guide to old and present teams

A quick guide to most of the teams named in the past tables and those who are still left!

This guide was produced as even I was getting a little confused when I was trying to complete the archive. The number of strangely named teams, now demolished or converted pubs and the number which have been renamed (and back again!) made me think that some explanation would help.

**Currently playing can mean the team has played in the previous season (Winter or Summer) but may not be playing at present or started the season and have withdrawn.

Last played refers to the last season that team has played under that name.

16 venues had teams playing on Sunday, Wednesday or both, during the 2021-2022 season.

90 venues have had teams in the league since my records began 25 years ago, of which 52 are still going (if I counted correctly)-2022.
