Notes

  1. ^ Horsham, Medway, Beccehamian, Hove, Park House, Folkestone, Heathfield & Waldron, Dartfordians, Chichester and Eastbourne would be the relegated teams this year. This was due to the creation of a new division 4 below this league for the 2000-01 season which would lead to a downsizing of the division from 17 teams to 10 resulting in much more relegation spots than usual.
  2. ^ Due to restructure of league from 10 teams to 12 for the following season meant there was no relegation.
  3. ^ The division would be renamed London Division 2 South East for the next season and along with the whole national restructure of the league system by the RFU lead to mass changes at all levels.
  4. ^ Both Aylesford Bulls and the runners up from London 2 West, Wimbledon, were promoted to London 2 South this year.
  5. ^ Only 1 team relegated this season as the league would go back to 12 teams the following season.
  6. ^ Despite losing the playoff, Aylesford Bulls would join Wimbledon in London 1 South the following season.[31]
