Devon County League

Devon County League Logo

The Devon County League was formed in 1992 to be a bridge between local leagues (Devon & Exeter League, North Devon League, Plymouth & District Combination and South Devon League) and the Western League. From its beginnings with 16 teams, the league expanded to 20, Crediton United, Heavitree United and Ottery St Mary joining from the Western League and both Appledore and Holsworthy transferring from the South Western League

Willand Rovers became the first team from the league to compete in the F.A. Vase in 1998-99, and in 2001 became the first to be promoted to the first division of the Western League. Dartmouth were the most successful club, winning the title three times.

The league eventually merged with the South Western League in 2007 to form the South West Peninsula League

A new Devon League, originally with two divisions, was formed in 2019.
