The L&RGU Scratch League is an annual competition, with almost every club in the Union taking part. Matches are 8-a-side with games being played on a Thursday evening.

The structure of the league has become out of sync due to the closure of Park Hill.  As this occurred after the publication of the league fixtures for 2018, division 2 continues with only 4 clubs for this season.  Assuming that there are no further changes to the participants in the league the following plan will be adopted after the 2018 season.
