Just to be clear, is this an open age competition, or veterans only?

I'm pretty sure it is a vets only league, but some of the teams (e.g. HSBC, Sheffield, etc.) do compete in the open age Sheffield & Hallam Junior (!) Cup. In fact Sheffield O/35s won the county cup last season beating Byron House of the South Yorkshire Alliance.

The information I got from a board member was that until recently the Over 45's was Over 40's and players over 40 sticking with their club were given dispensation to play.

Also there was a Vets (Over 35) section started in the Derby Taverners Sunday League last year.
Full time show 7 teams but no league table. This year lists 8 teams

It is veterans only. A few snippets from an old handbook follow...

1892 ~ This was the year of formation but the League's original name is somewhat obscure as the review of early records concerning local football refers to a midweek K.O. competition, rather than a League in its own right, which was formed by clubs from other League's being invited to take part on a straightforward knockout basis.

1904 ~ This was the year that the present trophy for winning the League's top division was donated by Wragg Cycles of Darnall and although showing signs of wear is a splendidly crafted cup.

1986 ~ Due to declining interest, and inspired by the success of an 'Over 35's League' in County Durham, the Wragg Football League decides to gamble on a change from an open-age competition to an Over 35's league, consisting of a single division of 9 teams. Inaugural champions were Tavern '86, who completed the double by also winning the League Knockout Cup.

Yes, Wragg League clubs have done rather well in the Sheffield & Hallamshire County FA Junior Challenge Cup since the turn of the millennium...

2003 R/U - Tomtreddlehoyle
2005 Winners - Hallam Malin
2006 R/U - Tomtreddlehoyle
2008 R/U - Telecom Sports
2009 Winners - Telecom Sports, R/U - HSBC Bank O35 'A'
2010 R/U - HSBC Bank O35 'A'
2014 Winners - Sheffield FC O35

I wonder if back in 1986, when the League gambled on changing to a veterans only format, they ever thought their League would provide both finalists (2009) for a Sheffield & Hallamshire county cup competition? Er, probably not!

Sheffield is well served with veterans leagues. Thereís even an over 35s section at the local Powerleague (or at least, there was when I lived there).
Itís something that is chronically lacking in London I might add.
