Lancashire Combination


Lancashire Combination

The Lancashire Combination was a football league founded in the north west of England in 1891-92. It absorbed the Lancashire League in 1903.

In 1968 the Lancashire Combination lost 5 of its clubs to the newly-formed Northern Premier League. In 1982 it was finally merged with the Cheshire County League to form the North West Counties Football League.
