Seven new clubs have joined the league this season, replacing eight who left. The Suburban League enters its 49th year since formation, facing similar problems to many leagues. In the Summer of 2018, 11 teams left the league, In 2017 it was 6 that departed. In 2016 no less than 12 including North Greenford, Biggleswade United, and Berkhamsted, resigned. The current set-up has 12 sides in the Premier Division, 11 in the Central, and 9 in the South (which goes as far east as Chatham and Sheppey). There is a League Cup, and a Plate Competition for clubs knocked out of the League Cup early.
