Shropshire County Premier Football League


Shropshire County Premier Football League

The Shropshire County Premier Football League (currently sponsored by Sportsjamkits.com) is an English association football league based in the county of Shropshire. The league was founded in 1950 and currently has two divisions which sit at levels 13 and 14 of the English football league system. Clubs who win this league can be promoted to the West Midlands (Regional) League [http://www.wmrl.non-league.org/HISTORY.htm History page on the WMRL's website] ] (the most recent team to do so being Hanwood United in 2008), although on occasion teams (such as Shifnal Town in 1993) have instead moved into the Midland Football Combination (due to a re-organisation of the boundaries of the two leagues this is unlikely to happen again). Teams from the Telford Combination may be promoted into the league, as Dawley Bank were in 2007. [http://www.shropshirestar.com/2007/06/20/amateurs-are-climbing-up/ Shropshire Star] ]

The 2006–07 league champions were Hanwood United, who were promoted to the West Midlands (Regional) League.

The grounds of several teams in the league, including Brown Clee, Hopesgate United and Wem Town, were featured in David Bauckham's book "Dugouts", which noted the high frequency of dugouts with lockable doors which are also used for storage, a feature seemingly unique to clubs in Shropshire.
