Historical Publications

As well as publishing the only annual dedicated to non-League football in Scotland since 1988, Stewart Davidson’s Scottish Non League Review has also issued numerous booklets covering a huge range of subjects.


Stuart Robertson has compiled a series of booklets which gives the results of every Junior game played in Ayrshire between 1933 and 1968. An excellent addition to any library, these indispensible records can be obtained by emailing Stuart.


Scottish Football Historian Each edition comprises 28 pages and contains original research on the history of the game in Scotland, its  personalities, players and clubs. Reproductions of long-forgotten articles on Scottish Football History, book reviews, obituaries, exchange of information, and news and views of interest to all those with an interest in the history of Scottish Football.


Soccer History magazine, which is edited by Ian Nannestad, is a quality publication covering football history over Britain with in depth coverage of the Scottish game.


‘Wish List’

To complete some of the pages below, I still require a number of final tables. Even partial tables or else more information on league memberships would be most welcome. The list does look lengthy, but apart from the reserve leagues it only features a small number from each league. If you can help in any way at all, please contact me. Many thanks.

2009 updates

25 October – More Glasgow Cup results, mainly concerning Partick Thistle, have been added thanks to sterling work by Graham Deans.


24 October – Tom’s been back in touch with last remaining missing Premier Reserve League table from 1985-86 season. He writes ‘On the subject of the "missing" tables, I believe there was no Premier Reserve Leagues for those seasons. In season 1976-77, the Scottish Reserve League had each club playing 33 games and therefore I doubt they would have time to play another league competition.

While in Seasons 1980-81 and 1981-82 - I have Celtic only competing in the Reserve League West. Indeed Celtic defeated Dundee United (East winners) 1-0 on aggregate in 1980-81 for the overall title.’

Kris Scrimgeour has supplied more results for the Forfarshire Cup.


23 October – Tom McGouran has provided more Reserve league tables. The period covering the Scottish (Reserve) League from 1955 to 1975 is now complete, while only five seasons (1976-77, 1978-79, 1980-81, 1981-82, 1985-86) are required to complete the Premier Reserve League. If you can help with these, or any other tables, please contact me.


20 October – Graham Deans has uncovered the date and result of the Glasgow Cup  tie between Third Lanark and Partick Thistle from 1913-14.

I’ve also updated some information concerning the Dunbartonshire & District League


17 October – Ian Nannestad of Soccer History magazine has noted some corrections, namely the date (23 April 1952 and not 23 August 1951) of the Hearts ‘A’ v Berwick Rangers 'C' Division result in 1951-52, and the correct result of the Clachnacuddin v Forfar Athletic tie in the 3rd Preliminary round of the 1945-46 Victory Cup. This was initially noted as a walkover for the Inverness side, but was played a week later than the rest of the ties of the round and ended 3-2.


16 October – Robert Bruce has sent me final tables of the 1975-76 and 1976-77 Premier and Scottish Reserve Leagues.

I’ve also updated the Midlothian Junior League with a number of missing tables.


10 October – John Condron of the Kerrydale Street site has drawn my attention to the fact that Celtic’s game against Kelvinside Athletic in the 1891-92 Glasgow Cup was a friendly match after the latter side had scratched from the competition after taking the field.


5 October – Robert Bruce of the Rangers History site has uncovered a list of Rangers’ reserve title wins, which includes ones from 1894-95, 1898-99, 1905-06, 1909-10, 1910-11, 1911-12, 1912-13 and 1914-15 seasons. These championships don’t tally with known records, but I’ve listed them here hoping someone knows which competitions they relate to. Robert has also supplied more Scottish Reserve League tables from the 1955-1975 period, and the table from the unfinished second series of the 1967-68 Combined Reserve League.


25 September - Graham Deans, who has corresponded with Queen’s Park FC, has sent me all the results of the Spiders’ Glasgow Cup matches.


21 September – I’ve added a page giving an overview of Juvenile football in Scotland. This was once a power in the land, with clubs fielding players as old as 27, but had diminished in status by the mid 1960s. Today the grade is covered by the Scottish Youth FA and has an age limit of 21.

When Inverness City joined the Juniors in 2008, they were believed to be the first from the Highland capital since the early 1900s. However it had come to light that the Inverness Junior League existed very briefly just after WWII. Not much is known about this league, except it disbanded in 1953, but I’ve add a short page about it. If you can add any more about this competition, please contact me.


15 September – The West of Scotland FA Cup updated.


7 September – Stuart Robertson has supplied Forfarshire Cup results for most seasons between 1883 and 1936, to which I‘ve added a number of results from the 1960s onwards. I’ve also compiled a page giving all the league and cup winners for the Scottish Amateur League.


30 August – Abbey Vale Institution, which competed in the 1870s has been removed from the Club Directory. According to Harry Smith, they only played rugby and never the association code: ‘I did some research a while back on rugby in St Andrews. Abbey Park had a brief existence as a boarding school. They fielded rugby teams but there were no references in the local paper to them playing football. Confusion could have arisen because in the 1870's-1880's many newspapers in the East of Scotland referred to rugby as football. Incidently only this week a developer is reported to have submitted plans to develop the derelict Abbey Park House.’


29 August – Border Amateur League winners and most of the final tables since the 1990s added. If anyone can help with a brief history of the league, please contact me.

John Meffen has forwarded the final tables of the 1949-50 C Division N&E and Graeme Gibb has sent me a photograph of Scotstoun Victoria. This states that they won the League and Jackie Robertson Cup in1932-33, but I’m not certain if these were at Juvenile or Amateur level. If anyone can enlighten me, please contact me.


25 August - Chris Munro has contacted me with more information on two of the early Benburb clubs of the 1890s. Chris writes: ‘I managed to find that the Benburb of Oatlands played through to the summer of 1898 at Benburb Park. This was the old Thistle ground now located within the confines of Richmond Park with Jenny's Burn at one end. Richmond Park opened in 1899 and it was the development that led the Council to requisition the ground in the summer of 1898 with no recompense to the club. The club paid of its debts and folded around July 1898. A meeting was called in Whitelaw's Public House in October 1898 under the title Benburb FC. The people involved seem to be newcomers although a couple of players seem to have persisted between the two clubs. This side played its first game on October 15 1898 defeating Mossend Celtic. This is the Benburb that continues to today. This side used the same strips worn by Benburb from Oatlands. This three month period is open to conjecture as to any connection between the sides and how the strips were acquired and the motivation of the newcomers in calling the meeting and naming the team Benburb FC but general opinion seems to be that they should be considered to be two different clubs although I think there's scope to argue otherwise.’ Chris also writes excellent historical blogs for the Benburb site at and the formation of the present club is chronicled HERE.


24 August – I’ve added the winners and final tables of the Fife Amateur League, which was formed in 2001 by the amalgamation of the Kirkcaldy & District and East Fife Amateur Leagues. .


23 August – Kris Scrimgeour has sent an amendment to the list of Dewar Shield winners. In 1957-58, Dundee beat Buckie Thistle on penalties, soon after they had beaten Fraseburgh to lift the 1956-57 trophy. Also slight additions have been made to the Club Directory to reflect the moving up of four clubs to a higher grade. Turriff United, Speyside Thistle and Formartine United all joined the Highland League from the North Juniors, while Spartan’s amateur XI joined the East Region Junior League.


This year the Scottish Amateur FA celebrates its centenary. To coincide with this, the SFHA, will be expanding on its amateur coverage. I’ve added a number of pages on some of the more senior amateur leagues, namely the Aberdeenshire Amateur League, the Caledonian Amateur League and the Central Scottish Amateur League. I intend to add more of these in the coming weeks.


12 August - Philip Hulme-Jones has noticed a couple of anomalies on the East of Scotland League page of tables, which have been corrected. Also Tom McGouran has sent me some more SPL Youth league going back to 1992-93.


5 August – I’ve compiled a page giving the champions and a potted history of the somewhat enigmatic North Caledonian League, an amateur league that due to some historical quirk, is recognised by the Scottish FA as a Senior competition. There are also all of the final tables of the competition since the late 1990s.


Scott Cockburn has sent me all the final tables of the SPL Youth league. This was open to Under-18 players when it first ran in 2001, and was extended to under-19 players two years later.

If anyone has any more on the history of Under-age, youth and Juvenile football, and they’d like to post it on the site, please contact me.


3 August – Every final table of the East of Scotland League is now available to view.


2 August - Philip Hulme-Jones who is researching Stranraer’s results, has quite rightly pointed out glaring errors in the page I have about the South of Scotland League, the list of league champions being the same as the League Cup winners! This has now been corrected.


30 July – I’ve added a page about the Midlothian Junior League, which dominated the East of Scotland before and just after the Great War.

Also additions have been made to the 1910-11 Scottish Junior League Division2 and 1930-31 Scottish Intermediate League Western Division, and a new page about the Glasgow District Junior League


29 July – I’ve further updated the Glasgow Junior League page with tables (including some of the GJL 2nd XI League) sent to me by Stewart Davidson. I’ve also added a page about the short-lived Scottish Junior Alliance of 1892-93. The Club Directory has also had some amendments made to it.


27 July – I’ve added a page concerning the Glasgow Junior League which was arguably the most powerful Junior league to have existed, taking on and beating the SJFA on a number of occasions before it disbanded in 1927.

Tom McGouran has also sent me a couple of amendments to the C Division, mainly regarding fixture dates. Tom writes ‘Your grid has Celtic playing Falkirk on 26 August. In my research for Celtic scorers and teams, I found out on that date Celtic played East Fife. I checked 23 August, that date the grid has Celtic playing East Fife but I found no game. The figures on the League table this season do not match the scores on the grid for Celtic. In 1954-55 C Division Celtic played Raith Rovers on 31 December and not 1 January.’


25 July – The Kincardineshire Junior League page I added yesterday was an earlier one I’d been working on. The correct one is now on the site. I’ve also added a page about the Friendship Cup by Bob Rutherford that was played between Scottish and French clubs in the early 1960s.


24 July – I’ve added a page concerning the Kincardineshire Junior League, which existed sporadically between 1905 and 1955. Ian Sumner’s military knowledge of the Scottish battalions has now been added to the Club Directory.


22 July – Stuart Robertson has added more final tables to the Kilmarnock & District Junior League and Western Intermediate League pages. Robert Watson has also supplied the table for the 1929-30 Eastern Division of the Scottish Intermediate League.

I’ve added a page listing all the top goalscorers in the Scottish League since 1890-91. Please contact me if you notice any errors, or can to some of the earlier seasons regarding the lower divisions.


21 July – More Lanarkshire Junior League tables from the 1920s to the 1950s have been sent in by Robert Watson.


19 July – Firstly I’ve updated both the Glasgow Cup and the C Division of 1954-55 (both from Tom McGouran). Secondly, I’ve completed new pages with leagues sent to me by Stewart Davidson. The Kilmarnock & District Junior League, Lanarkshire North Western League, Midland Junior League, Renfrewshire Junior League, Scottish Intermediate League, Western Intermediate League, South Ayrshire Junior League, Stirling & District Junior League and Strathaven & District Junior League all have some final tables and seasonal memberships. If you can fill in any blank seasons, please contact me. I’ve also made a couple of minor amendments to the Scottish Junior League and Stirlingshire Junior League pages.


17 July – The record of the Glasgow Cup competition is edging towards completion thanks to research sent to me by Third Lanark historian Graham Deans. There are still a very small number of matches to find, but the page now gives virtually every result up to 1988.


16 July – The Scottish Junior League existed in three versions between 1892 and 1947. Stewart Davidson supplied a great many tables, and again using John Aitken’s ‘West of Scotland Juniors’ book, I’ve posted a page detailing the history of this somewhat overlooked league.


13 July – I’ve updated the Lanarkshire Junior League and Lanarkshire Junior Alliance pages that Stewart supplied with information from John Aitken’s ‘West of Scotland Juniors’ book and given a potted history of both leagues. Any more information on either would be most welcome. For more information on the latter years of both the LJL and the Lanarkshire Junior FA, I thoroughly recommend the two booklets published by Stewart Davidson.
