Gloucestershire County League

Formed in 1968, the Gloucestershire County League League is a single-division league at Step 7 of the National League System. In recent years, clubs have moved up to either the Hellenic League or the Western League.

The league came to some national prominence in the late 1970s, when Almondsbury Greenway had two fantastic runs in the F.A. Vase, reaching the semi-final in 1977-78, and being runners-up in the Wembley Stadium final twelve months later. Old Georgians also had a decent run a few years later, when they reached the Quarter Finals.

No Gloucestershire County League teams currently enter the F.A. Cup, nor have done since the mid-1980s. Almondsbury Greenway, Cinderford Town and Stonehouse did so in the past, with the run to the Third Round Qualifying from Cinderford in 1973-74 the best achieved by a side while members of the league.
