The Doncaster and District Senior Football League (currently known as the Doncaster Rovers Senior League for sponsorship reasons) is a football competition for clubs in the Doncaster area of England.

It has one division, lying at level 13 of the English football league system[1] and clubs can be promoted from this league into the Central Midlands League North Division.


The competition was formed for the 1925–26 season.[2]


The league has previously run with as many as four divisions, but as of 2015–16 it was formed as only one division of 16 teams that will play each other once and then form two divisions of eight teams (Premier Division and Division 1) after the Christmas break with the top eight and bottom eight forming each division respectively that will play each other a further two occasions to determine the championship. There are two league cup competitions - one for Premier Division clubs and one for Division One clubs.
