Current clubs (2014-15)
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.
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.
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.
