The reason for its creation was dissatisfaction amongst several of these clubs when, after years of war-time competitions (such as the Herts & Middlesex league and the South-East Combination) when they had played, with reasonable success, against supposedly 'bigger' clubs from the Athenian and Isthmian Leagues, they found themselves ordered back into the weak Spartan and London Leagues.

In 1949 so did Epsom (with Bedford Town leaving and Walton & Hersham joining the Athenian League). A year later Tilbury came from the London League and four seasons of stability reigned and 14 clubs stayed the norm.
