A Youth league set up by the SPL in 1998, superseding the Youth Division of the Scottish League which had run since 1993, although an unofficial league was organised for the 1992-93 season featuring Celtic, Aberdeen, Dundee United, Dunfermline Athletic, Falkirk, Heart of Midlothian, Motherwell and St Johnstone. Until 2003 the league was open to players who were under-18, and under-19 from 2003.

 

Many thanks to Scott Cockburn and Tom McGouran for supplying the following tables.

Note:

Gretna's entrance into administration meant they withdrew from the Youth League with 6 games outstanding.

However, the SPL decided their results should stand and their remaining opponents be awarded a 3-0 victory.

The following fixtures were awarded:

Celtic (A), Falkirk (H), Inverness Caledonian Th. (A), Kilmarnock (A), Motherwell (A), Rangers (H)

The above League table reflects the six, 3-0 wins but does not include them as matches played.
