Scottish Federation 1898-99

Ayrshire League

Midland League

Scottish Alliance

 

 

Formed in 1891 this league had a brief two seasons of existence.

After the first season, Hurlford and Kilmarnock Athletic joined the Ayrshire League while Burnbank and Glasgow Wanderers left to concentrated on cup-ties and friendlies. Neilston and East Stirlingshire, who transferred from the Scottish Alliance, were elected to make the numbers up to ten. The Scottish  League's decision to form a Second Division in 1893 indirectly caused the Federation to close down. The Scottish Alliance, as the senior non-League body, was used as the backbone for the new section with Motherwell also gaining admission. Four Federation clubs then transferred to the Alliance. With Falkirk and East Stirlingshire entering the Midland League, and Hurlford and Kilmarnock Athletic joining the Ayrshire League the Federation closed down.

The name was revived for a season for a reserve competition in 1898-99.
