Saltford Res are not actually in the catchment area of the league but with the Bath League struggling to survive then as former members (before a defined catchment area was agreed upon many years ago) it was voted to accept them back in after a lengthy absence.
Victoria Sports have transferred from the Yeovil League. Historically the Mid-Som League when it was a Senior League was open to all teams in Somerset (Minehead and Odd Down, Bath are former members). As a Junior League it was based around Glastonbury and Street when it was reformed as a Junior League. Victoria Sports are a Street based side and join recent additions to the league from Baltonsborough, Tor Leisure, and the longer members of Glastonbury Res. Very good for the league to return to its heartland. The migration Eastwards occurred with the demise of the East Somerset League (I have the minute books somewhere) and the Frome Leagues respectively back in the 60s. The Cheddar Valley League also went during the early 60s and most of the clubs dabbled with the Mid-Somerset League before decamping to the Weston League.
Having been in the middle when Pensford were in the KO Cup Final and with Frome Town winning the Somerset Junior Cup, the league will be a poorer place not only football wise but also due to the fine sporting nature of both clubs/managers.

So where did the Chew Valley League fit into the above?

Hi Richard,
Simply the Chew Valley doesn't! Probably played its final season in 26-27 and those member clubs would have no doubt been largely the members of the North Somerset League that reformed in 1929. The North Somerset League (1897) was the first Junior League in the County. Just checked the SFA 1930-31 Handbook and the competition wasn't affiliated for that season. There was also a Chew Valley Charity Cup which was contested in the 1920s so I believe.
The Central Somerset League which ran until 1932 was basically the forerunner of the Mid-Som Junior League. The KO Cup final trophy is the original Central Somerset Trophy and the Mid-Som Div 3 Trophy today is the Trophy that was presented to the winners of the Mid-Somerset Senior League.

Thanks John

I didn't know that the Chew Valley League existed until the other day when I stumbled upon a table for 1922-23 season.
