Additions and updates

28 February I've found the missing Tennents Soccer Sixes results for the 1986 and 1987 tournaments and this page now has every result for this popular competition.

Tom McGouran sent me the finals for the Whitbread Trophy, an end-of-season competition organised between 1974 and 1976 and competed for by the divisonal winners of the Ayrshire, Central and East Regior Junior Leagues. After further research I managed to track down most of the results for the three years it ran for. In 1976-77 the tournament was sponsored by the off-licence chain Haddow's under the name Haddow Jubilee Cup.

I've also added some more results to the National Drybrough Cup

Tom's also sent me details of the McGregor Cup.

In 1978 the Scottish Junior FA presented Jean McGregor, Secretary of Erskine Charity FA (ECFA) and Mr Albert Moffat of Maryhill Charity FA (MCFA) with a trophy named 'The McGregor Cup' which was to be played annually between the two Associations in memory of her late husband, Tom who was the secretary/treasurer of the ECFA from its formation in 1949 until his death in 1968. Jean further held the position until the competition ceased.

I've also added most of the tables for the Midland Region Junior League and Tayside Region Junior League. The divisional memberships for the 1983-84 and 1984-85 seasons have proved troublesome so any help would be gratefully received!

16 Feb I've added  a page giving North Region Junior League tables from 1968 to date including the League Cup. The North Section is more or less complete but the North Section still needs a LOT of work! Also note that the 1998-99 North Section champions are Islavale and not New Elgin which some publications and sites otherwise state.

David Cochran of the very informative St Mirren historical site informs me that it was St Mirren Juniors that won the 1916-17 Renfrewshire Junior Consolation Cup





The Scottish Non League Review
was at the forefront of publishing research on Junior and Senior non-league football, the annual SNLR yearbook, the 'Bible of Non League football', being a must have.

Stewart Davidson decided to 'retire' after 30 years at the helm and has a number of his publications still available for sale at discounted prices. These booklets are hard to come by and contain a plethora of historical material; club histories, sourcebooks, league and cup histories including a complete record of the Scottish Qualifying Cup. Also available are the complete Scottish Junior Cup results from 1950 to date. Stewart has been working on the remaining seasons and hopefully these will also be available in time to come.

Stewart has compiled a list of the available books, please take a look and grab yourself a bargain!


Junior Scotland 1889 to 2019: The Players and Matches
Douglas Gorman and Tom McGouran have compiled the most comprehensive record of Scotland's junior international football team, Junior Scotland 1889 to 2019: The Players and Matches is available from 

An excel spreadsheet giving a summary account of this (dates, line-ups, scorers etc) can be accessed HERE

To help fill in the missing information, they have compiled a NEEDS LIST. Please have a look and if you can help in any way please email me and I will forward it on to them.
