Who won Southern Suburban League in 1902/03 ? Can't Post or Reply Privately

We've had a number of posts about the pre-WW1 Southern Suburban League but I can't find any data on the 1902-03 season. Does anyone know who were champions that season?

There's a report in the Dorking and Leatherhead Observer, Epsom District Times and County Post (phew!) 18/4/03 mentioning Silvertown were winners of the Southern Suburban League, First Division.

is this the same Silvertown FC that won the Eastern Suburban League in 1898-99?

A caveat - small piece on Silvertown's history from 1905 states they were winners of the SSL in 1901-02 (but not 02-03).

The article mentioned in the post above doesn't mention the East Suburban League. It says that in 1898-99 season they were runners-up in the Woolwich League.

my apologies - me not reading my notes properly!!

my notes on Silvertown clubs - taken from the Southend Standard newspaper:

1897-98 season

Later in October, in the Preliminary Round of the Essex Junior Cup, results included a 3-0 home win for Southend Athletic against Dagenham FC (no connection to the present Dagenham & Redbridge FC), while up in Silvertown the home side were beating Leigh Town 3-2 on a pitch full of cinders and broken bottles. The pitch itself was not enclosed, the goals had no netting and the goalposts themselves were not painted; in fact one goal was the same dark colour as the ground’s boundary wall behind! Leigh protested to the referee before the match and, following a hearing at the Essex County FA, the tie was ordered to be re-played a fortnight later at Leigh, in which the home side ran out easy 6-0 winners.

1899-1900

The 1899-1900 season opened on September 2nd, and on that Saturday afternoon Southend Athletic took on Tate’s Institute at their Victoria Avenue ground in front of a 500 strong crowd. The Silvertown club had won the championship of the Eastern Suburban League for the past two seasons and a hard game was expected. Unfortunately for Southend the strength of London football remained well above that of the locals; the visitors winning easily by 5-0.

1904-05

In the Essex Junior Cup, Leigh Ramblers were the pride of the district. In the semi-final on March 11th they met favourites Silvertown at Southend Athletic FC. However, the Ramblers won the tie easily, 3-0.
The final took place at Chelmsford FC on 8th April 1905. Leigh Ramblers delighted their travelling fans by bringing home the cup having defeated Braintree Manor Works 4-1.
It was a good season for the Ramblers – one cup win, two League Championships and one cup final loss, this to the soldiers in the Southend Charity Shield Final played at Marine Park.

I have a completely different winner of the Southern Suburban League in 1902-03 -

SEASON 1902-03
SENIOR DIVISION
1 WEST NORWOOD 8 4 4 0 13 4 12
2 DULWICH HAMLET 8 4 4 0 18 4 12
3 BROMLEY 8 4 3 1 19 8 11
4 WANDSWORTH 8 0 4 4 3 21 4
5 WOOLWICH POLYTECHNIC 8 0 1 7 6 22 1

There is no Silvertown in this division or any of the lower divisions. However, they did win Division 1 East in 1901-02.

I've included a couple of amendments to balance Mike's tables and added a couple of divisions.

Research by Tony Prior has the following:-

Senior: West Norwood
Div 1: Wingfield House(West) 2 Lewisham Montrose (East) 1
Div 2: Summerstown (West) 3 Bromley Swifts (East) 0

The above being the leaders' play-offs of each section
