1896-97 Midlothian League

 

The Midlothian League was competed for during 1896-97. The first game was played on 16 January 1897 and the winners were awarded a trophy put up by Sir Thomas Carmichael, MP. Although the fixture list was incomplete, thanks mainly to Penicuik’s successful cup runs, Polton Vale were declared champions. The league was discontinued but Carmichael Cup continued as a knock-out competition for West and Mid Lothian clubs until 1903.
