Formerly the West Surrey Boys League (WSBL), the League was formed in 1966 when a group of local football enthusiast got together to form a league for local teams to play in. Originally the league was based in the Woking area, but soon expanded to include teams from Surrey, Hampshire, Sussex, Middlesex, Berks and Bucks and the London FA. the advent of Girls football produced a name change to the West Surrey Youth League (WSYL), before the Committee at the time set up the Surrey County Girls League, with the WSYL reverting to boys only football. Another name changes followed, tot he Surrey Youth League to reflect the geographical area that the league now included.
