Even Shalford, who's first team are only in the Surrey Intermediate (Western) have youth teams playing in the Guildford & Woking Alliance.
Shalford and Guildford City Weysiders 1st XI's share the railed ground as you go south out of Guildford, when I went to see Shalford v Guildford City Weysiders a couple of seasons ago I was chatting to some of the officials and they told me about their other teams who use the 2 or 3 pitches that beyond. I think at that point both clubs had at least three or four teams each, one each in the SWIL one in the reserve section, some in the Guidford & Woking Alliance and I think one of the clubs even had a side in the Aldershot League.
I went to Burpham the same season when they were in the SWIL, at that point they had two pitches and had I think four teams spread across the leagues.
It is nice to see that clubs at that level have a number of sides, Burpham seem to have had problems with their 1st XI but they did not fold as they had more junior teams to step to become the first side even though they would have to be in a lower league.
I'm adored in Augsburg
