The Taunton & District Saturday Football League (currently sponsored by Silver Street Volkswagen) is a football competition based in Somerset, England. It has a total of five divisions, the highest of which, Division One, sits at level 14 of the English football league system. It is a feeder to the Somerset County League and is affiliated to the Somerset County FA.


The league runs five divisions (Divisions One to Five) and four cup competitions. The League Knock-out Cup is contested between teams in Divisions One and Two. Teams knocked out of this competition in the first three rounds (preliminary, first and second) are then entered into the Rose Bowl. The Seward Memorial Cup is contested between teams in Divisions Three and Four. Teams knocked out of this competition in the first three rounds are then entered into the Gardner Security Trophy.

The Taunton & District Saturday Football League is a member of the Joint Liaison Committee comprising the Somerset County League and other feeder leagues within the county.
