The Perry Street and District League, commonly known as the Perry Street League, is a football competition based in the counties of Somerset, Dorset and Devon, England. The league was formed in 1903 by Charles Edward Small, the owner of the Perry Street Lace Works, who is commemorated by the three spools of lace depicted on the league's crest.
Today the league has a total of five divisions including the Perry Street League Premier Division. The Perry Street League is a member of the Joint Liaison Committee comprising the Somerset County League and other feeder leagues within the county. The Perry Street League is affiliated to the Somerset County FA.
