Surrey 3 (1993–1996)[edit]

Surrey 3 (1996–2000)[edit]

The cancellation of National 5 South at the end of the 1995–96 season meant that Surrey 3 reverted back to being a tier 10 league. Promotion and relegation continued to Surrey 2 and Surrey 4 respectively.

Surrey 3 (2000–2009)[edit]

The introduction of London 4 South West ahead of the 2000–01 season meant Surrey 3 dropped to become a tier 11 league. Promotion was to Surrey 2, while the cancellation of Surrey 4 at the end of the 1999–00 season, meant that there was no relegation until Surrey 4 was reinstated from the 2005–06 season onward.

Number of league titles[edit]

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Harrodians would be renamed Barnes RFC from the 1992–93 season onward.
  2. ^ Changes to the Surrey leagues for the following season, including the restructuring of Surrey 2 and creation of Surrey 5 meant that champions Battersea Ironsides were not promoted.
  3. ^ The restructuring of Surrey 2 and creation of Surrey 5 meant that runners up Old Caterhamians were actually relegated into Surrey 4.
  4. ^ The restructuring of Surrey 2 and creation of Surrey 5 meant that nine teams were relegated. Old Caterhamians, Reigate & Redhill, Surrey Police, BBC, Old Bevonians, Old Croydonians, Shene Old Grammarians and London Fire Brigade dropped to Surrey 4, while Haslemere dropped to Surrey 5.
  5. ^ Due to restructuring caused by the cancellation of Surrey 5 at the end of the season, six clubs were promoted including Old Haileyburians, Chobham, Old Wandsworthians and Old Bevonians.
  6. ^ Restructuring due to the cancellation of Surrey 5 at the end of the season meant there was no relegation.
  7. ^ Relegated Shene Old Grammarians would drop out of the league.
  8. ^ No relegation due to the cancellation of Surrey 4 at the end of the season.
  9. ^ Bec Old Boys were also promoted along with champions Worth Old Boys and runners up Chipstead.
  10. ^ Not promoted due to restructure to Surrey league - Surrey 4 re-instated. Bec Old Boys would remain in division along with teams dropping from Surrey 2.
  11. ^ Despite finishing second London Media would be victims of league restructuring due to the reinstatement of Surrey 4 - dropping down to the new division.
  12. ^ Old Suttonians, Egham Hollowegians, Woking, Old Oundelians, Haslemere and Economicals were the relegated teams this year. This was due to the reinstatement of Surrey 4 for the 2005-06 season which meant that almost all teams in this division were relegated to populate the new league.
  13. ^ No relegation as league increased from 9 to 10 teams for the next season.
  14. ^ Haslemere would drop out of the league for the next season.
  15. ^ Old Radleian would drop out of the league for the next season.
