The Inverness Junior FA was formed in 1887 and organised the Inverness Junior Cup. In 1888 it was renamded the North of Scotland Junior FA as was the cup. The Association was rconstituted as the North of Scotland 2nd XI FA in 1935 due to the Scottish Junior FA's stance on Senior clubs not competing alongside Juniors. At the 1984 AGM of the Association the decision was taken to change its name again, this time to North Caledonian FA as it was felt by the clubs that 'Second Eleven' in the title held some stigma.

 

Founded in 1896 as the North of Scotland Junior League, the North Caledonian League (NCL) is an amateur league which, enigmatically, has a tenuous senior status. The league mostly consists of amateur clubs that play on public parks, although Golspie Sutherland have full membership of the Scottish FA, while the long defunct Thurso Pentland were also a senior club in the NCL that competed in the Scottish Cup in the 19th century.

 

Until 1935 the league was known as the North of Scotland Junior League and a number of clubs also competed in the Scottish Junior Cup. It was renamed the North of Scotland 2nd XI League from 1935 (also known as the Highland Alliance until 1939), with the Highland League reserve teams which had dominated the championship continuing to do so until the late 1960s. The change of name and status may have been due to the Scottish Junior FA's then policy of being against Junior clubs with affiliations to Senior clubs.

 

During the 1970s the reserve teams gradually dropped out and other clubs from villages in the highlands emerged into membership so that by the turn of the 1980's very few reserve teams took part. In 2020-21 for the first time in its history, the league was divided into two divisions, League 1 and League 2.

 

The North Caledonian Cup was previously known as the Inverness Junior Cup for its for edition, then as the North of Scotland Junior Cup. It became the North of Scotland 2nd XI Cup in 1935 after the Association's break from the Scottish Junior FA. Between 2004 and 2009 the competition was promoted as the Jock Mackay Memorial Cup in honour of the long-standing committee member. From 2009 the Memorial Cup was introduced as a separate competition.

 

The Ness Cup had been competed for between 1955 and 1982. It was briefly revived in 2013 and in 2020-21 was to be awarded to the winners of the NCL League 2 competition. The trophy was originally used for the war-time Ness Cup which was competed for by Highland League clubs and Forces teams

Table as of 3 Feb 1938

Ross County resigned twice. First in October, the League issued fines totalling 18 based on unplayed matches. County elected to play on in November then resigned again in mid-December. After a 16 fine was re-levied in January, County offered 4 as full settlement in April, which was refused. Ttheir record (6-0-1-5-9-28-0) was expunged.

Also in early March, Nairn County resigned citing "team difficulties" before changing their mind two weeks later. At the AGM in August it was noted that only two League games were unplayed.

RNAS Evanton won the Ross-shire section but had disbanded by the time the play-offs were to be contested. Rothes and Balintore, as runners-up, played-off to decide who played Inverness Thistle in the semi-final, the winners to meet the Morayshire section winners in the final at Invergordon. The Morayshire section was ultimately incomplete so Ross County were to meet Inverness Thistle in the final.
