Coalville & District Sunday School League

The Coalville & District Sunday School League was formed the 1911/12 season. As the name suggests the league was formed for Sunday Schools and Bible Classes in the Coalville area.

What do we know about this League ?

Final positions pre First World War and participating teams for most of the seasons afterwards. I think 1929/30 was the final season since three of the six teams appeared in the Coalville & District Amateur Football League the next season.

There was a pause for five years due to the First World War, but the league started up again in the 1920/21 season, and expanded to two divisions for the season after.

After four seasons the league went back down to a single division, with an additional division added for the 1928/29 season for under 16 teams.
