League members also compete in the North Wales Coast Junior Cup against fellow league members and members from the Caernarfon & District League and the Clwyd League.

Since 2012, after years of struggle, the number of teams competing in the Anglesey League has fallen from 15 to 11.

The likes of Bethesda Reserves, Maes-Y-Bryn and Llanfairpwll Reserves have all resigned in recent years. Some have encountered hardships such as losing managers and players, whilst others such as Llanfairfechan have left to join other leagues.

The league folded in 2020 due to a reorganisation of the Welsh football league pyramid, with many teams joining the North Wales Coast West Football League.[1]
