The Intermediate dispute was a major football split which lasted from 1925 to 1931 and concerned the compensation that junior clubs received when one of their players moved to a senior Scottish League side.

 

On 19 March 1926, 62 clubs formed the Scottish Intermediate FA and were immediately outlawed by the Scottish FA. In June 1927, the powerful Glasgow Junior League (GJL) dissolved itself at its AGM and made way for the formation of the breakaway Scottish Intermediate League while in Ayrshire the Western Junior League reformed as the Western Intermediate League.

 

When a compromise was reached in 1931, the Scottish Intermediate FA renamed itself the West of Scotland Junior FA. It was also decided not to reform the GJL but to keep the Scottish Intermediate League format as the Scottish Central Junior League. The Scottish Intermediate Cup was also renamed as the West of Scotland Junior Cup.
