There's something I've got to know....

Almost, but not quite.<p>Isthmian relates to anything situated in, or near, or on, an isthmus. An isthmus is a narrow strip of land joining two larger areas of land, the most famous being the Isthmus of Panama.<p>Another famous one is the Isthmus of Corinth (Greece). This was the home of the ancient Pan-Hellenic games and, in that connection, probably gives its name to our own Isthmian League.<p>Merv CIFC<p>[ 23 November 2001: This message was edited by: Merv CIFC ]</p>

Of or relating to the Isthmus of Corinth, especially with regard to the biennial Pan-Hellenic games held there in antiquity<p>So I assume it was to do with the amateur status of the league rather than it originating on an isthmus smile.gif" border="0 <p>Mind you I hear that Denis Strudwick is trying to get some Greek teams to join the Southern League <img src="graemlins/zyklop.gif" border="0" alt="[zyklop]" />
