What other teams are in London?

London is the home to 17 professional clubs, dozens of semi-professional clubs and hundreds and hundreds of amateur clubs. The way the relegation system works is that every year, the top few clubs on each table are promoted to the league above them and the bottom few clubs on each table are relegated to the league below them.
