Number of league titles[edit]

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Old Reigatian, Old Whitgiftian, Old Alleynians, Fawley, Purley John Fisher, Tottonians, Southampton, Reeds Weybridge, Cranleigh, Barnes and Cobham were the relegated teams this season. This was due to the creation of a new division 4 below this league for the 2000-01 season which would lead to a downsizing of the division from 17 teams to 10 resulting in much more relegation spots than usual.
  2. ^ Both Wimbledon and the runners up from London 2 East, Aylesford Bulls, were promoted to London 2 South this year.
  3. ^ There was no relegation this year as the division would be renamed London Division 2 South West for the 2009-10 season and along with the whole national restructuring of the league system by the RFU lead to mass changes at all levels.
  4. ^ Despite losing the playoff, Aylesford Bulls would join Wimbledon in London 1 South the followings season.[31]
