Liverpool County Football Combination

The Liverpool County Football Combination was a football league based in Merseyside, England. It was founded in 1908 and had its first season in 1909-10. A second division was quickly formed, and the league ran with two divisions for the majority of its existence.

The league had a knockout competition, the George Mahon Cup,[1] for the entire duration of its existence.

The league's last season was 2005-06, when the league champions were Speke. At the conclusion of the 2005-06 season, the league merged with the I Zingari League to form a new competition – the Liverpool County Premier League, which took the County Combination's former place at step 7 (or level 11) of the English football league system and as a feeder to the North West Counties Football League First Division. The George Mahon Cup is still contested by teams in the new league.[2]
