North Leigh

Currently Playing In:

Southern League Division One South West

 

A club from a rural area in Oxfordshire which was formed in 1908, played in local leagues until they moved up from the Witney & District League into The Hellenic League in 1990.

Not naturally blessed with the potential local support to take them up through the ranks of non-league football pyramid, North Leigh have a record of consistency that compares with any senior club. Since competing in their eighteen Hellenic League campaigns and the four in the Southern League, ‘The Millers’ have only finished outside the top ten in their division on two occasions and they were mid table finishes!

Much of this has been due to the steady relationships with their managers. There have only been five, and Mark Gee has looked after playing matters since the beginning of the century. Two Hellenic Championships came before the club was ready for promotion, but the third in 2008, took the club into their highest ever level in the game and they have more than held their own in The Southern League Division One South West.
