The league published a superb history book "Five Score - The SIL Football Book Of The Century" in 1996 which included all the league tables to that date. Since 2004-16, all the tables were available in mitoo, and from 2016 on FA Full-Time, so there is an 8-season gap where we do not currently have the full final tables.
