Northern League

Page created: 10 August 2020

Updated:

 

The Northern League was formed in 1891 and was based initially around the counties of Forfarshire and Perthshire, and the city of Aberdeen. Later it would extend southwards into Fife. 1893-94 was one of three occasions the championship was not completed - the others were in 1911-12 and 1913-14 when the competition was very much deminished. Although Arbroath were leading, the league was abandoned and not restarted until 8 June 1895 when it was reconstituted as a new league. Victoria United were one of the eight invited clubs, but by the time the league started the new season, they had been replaced by Fair City Athletic.

1908-09 was the last season that the league had a strong membership as the following season, six of its clubs helped to form the Central League. From then until 1920, the league became a secondary affair and an attempt at creating a new stronger, North Eastern League in 1912 with some Border clubs failed when the Eastern League was set up without the Forfarshire teams. The Northern League closed down for the war, although it was briefly revived for a season in 1919-20.

Play-off

East End v Our Boys not played

 

East End and Our Boys were meant to play a championship decider on 25 May. However, East End declined to play on the basis that they didn't agree with the deduction of the 2 points for fielding Reid against Montrose. Also, they did not agree to the proposed share of ‘gate’ claiming one half of the drawings. Although the game was postponed until 31 May the match was never played and the championship was shared.

The missing matches were not played due to resignations and the imminent collapse of the whole league.

 

25 Nov Forfar v Montrose 2-0 declared a friendly and replayed later

2 Dec Aberdeen v Forfar 6-4 was stopped after 80 mins due to darkness and the result was allowed to stand

 

The Northern League crisis.

On 6 January, Johnstone Wanderers refused to travel to Montrose as they had played there twice before and that ‘the ‘gate’ hadn’t paid them’.

At a meeting of the league on 13 January, at the Albion Hotel in Dundee, the discussion centred upon Johnstone Wanderers and Strathmore for not travelling to play Aberdeen, refusing to play league fixtures and for withdrawing from the league. Both clubs were instructed to pay the £10 penalty for not fulfilling their fixtures. It was moved to continue with the competition with six clubs, but Mr Fyffe of Victoria United stated that his club would also withdraw if the two Dundee clubs left; he felt that they were now one as Dundonians, later Dundee Wanderers. It was moved to continue with five clubs.

On 17 Jan Victoria United threatened to resign from the league but fulfil their remaining fixtures as friendlies.

The league didn’t accept the resignations at a meeting on 27 January, while Victoria confirmed that they would continue to fulfil their fixtures.
