There have been a number of Border Leagues operating. The first was in 1893-94 season.
The second Border League was formed in 1897, with the winners being awarded the Paul Shield. This league consisted entirely of Scottish clubs and disbanded in 1898.

A Border Amateur League was formed in 1901 and when the Border Senior League was re-formed in 1902 and the two competitions ran parallel with each other for a number of years.

In August 1907, a decision was taken to bar the Gala Renton and Gala Hailes Villa clubs from Border Senior League this season as the league had ruled only clubs with private grounds could take part. Both clubs decided to disband and merge as Gala FC and apply for a League place. This was subsequently refused as new club also didnít have a private ground! They then helped form a Southern League which lasted only one season. Kelso dropped out as their players had difficulty in travelling to Border League matches and instead joined the more local Border Amateur League.

The Border Senior League also ran a Second Division with junior clubs for a couple of seasons after 1910. The Paul Shield was awarded to the winners of this version and when the league was not being competed for, the trophy was played for as a knock-out competition. The league closed down in 1913, but re-formed after WW1 before disbanding in 1923. The Paul Shield was again thereafter played as a knock-out competition until about 1934.

 

The Border Amateur League was formed in 1901, using the trophy of the Shielfield Cup competition, it was centred around Berwickshire, being a mixture of Scottish and English clubs.Disbanding in 1914 the league was re-formed as a non-senior competition in 1936.

 

In September 1905 a third Border League was formed, this was based in Cumberland and appears to have lasted one season.

In August 1907 a decision was taken to bar the Gala Renton and Gala Hailes Villa clubs from the Border Senior League this season as the league had ruled only clubs with private grounds could take part. Both clubs decided to disband and merge as Gala FC and apply for League place which was subsequently refused as the new club also didnít have a private ground. Kelso dropped out as their players had difficulty in travelling to Border League matches but joined the more local Border Amateur League instead.

 

8 Feb Duns v Walkerburn 4-1 was mistakenly reported as a Border League match

7 Mar Peebles refused to travel to Selkirk for fear that the latter would fail to fulfill the return match over guarantees. Peebles were subsequently sanctioned by the Border FA.
