Central League

including the Central League Cup and the Calder Shield

A Central League was formed in 1896 by six clubs; Cowdenbeath, Dunfermline Athletic, Fair City Athletic, Kirkcaldy, Lochgelly United and St. Johnstone. In 1897 it was superseded by the formation of the Central Combination, and disbanded, unfinished, at the end of 1897-98.

 

Following the collapse of the Central Combination in 1903, four clubs, Dunblane, King’s Park, Strathallan and Vale of Teith formed a new Central League competition but Vale of Teith withdrew without playing a game. This lasted just one season but a new league was formed at the Station Hotel in Larbert during November 1904. Dunfermline Athletic considered joining but decided against it. As the clubs were also members of other established leagues, and the competition was seen as a supplementary league much like the Inter-City and Glasgow Leagues that existed at the time. Elected officials were President D Mackay (Alloa Athletic) and Secretary and Treasurer J Macnicol (King’s Park).

 

The fourth, and main, Central League was formed in 1909 when six Northern League clubs resigned from that body and set up a less geographically widespread league. In 1915, the Central League closed down due to the War. The Scottish League then suspended its Second Division and seven of their clubs combined with five of the Central League sides to re-form the Eastern League. When it became unlikely that the Second Division would be re-formed after the War, twelve clubs resuscitated the Central League, also admitting the reserve XIs of two Scottish League clubs. Because the Central League were not members of the Inter-League Board, they did not have to pay transfer fees, and were thus able to entice prominent Scottish, and English, League players to their stronger clubs . One of the first was Andy Wilson who although contracted decided to sign for Dunfermline. The Fife side also signed Bob Mercer of Hearts and James Gordon of Rangers. The wages paid to these three men were said to be in excess of what some Scottish League clubs were playing their entire playing staff. Seeing the Central League as a serious threat to its existence, the Scottish League decided on a compromise. For the return of their poached players, the Scottish League promised the restoration of the Second Division with automatic promotion and relegation. This was accepted by the Central League and was rubberstamped at a Scottish League meeting on 11 May 1921. At the end of the 1920-21 season the Central League disbanded and its clubs became members of the Scottish League. The league also organised a League Cup post war. The first was completed but the second was abandoned in May 1921 when the season closed.

The trophy awarded to the league champions, the Calder Shield, was subsequently played for by the Linlithgowshire clubs as a knock-out competition during the remainder of the 1920s
