The Sheffield and Hallamshire County Senior Football League is a football competition for clubs in the South Yorkshire area of England. The competition is administered by the Sheffield and Hallamshire Football Association.

It has a total of three divisions, with the highest, the Premier Division, being awarded Step 7 status (level 11 overall) in the English football league system in 2012.[1] Teams that win promotion from the league are usually entered into the Step 6 Northern Counties East League Division 1.

Under the terms of a sponsorship deal, the league is currently named the Pete's Patisserie County Senior Football League.

Current clubs (2014-15)[edit]


The current league was formed in 1982 as the result of a merger between two well established local competitions - the Hatchard and Sheffield Association Leagues.

Pre-merger (1894-1982)[edit]

The Hatchard League was formed in 1894. It was named after a local politician who donated the trophy to the Sheffield & Hallamshire FA.

The Sheffield Association League was formed in 1897 and soon established itself as the foremost league competition for non-league clubs in the south of Yorkshire. In 1960 the league was renamed the Sheffield & Hallamshire County Senior League.


Post-merger (1982-)[edit]

In the summer of 1982 the two competitions decided to join forces and merge, opting to retain the Sheffield & Hallamshire County Senior League name. In 2011 the Football Association awarded the league's top division Step 7 status (level 11 overall) in the English football league system.[2]
