History



The SJFA was formed in Glasgow on 2 October 1886 and the first seasons Junior Cup saw thirty-nine clubs take part. Junior football had existed since the early 1880s, initially as separate local associations across Scotland for clubs not in membership of the SFA. This new national association acted as an umbrella for these local Junior associations, as well as establishing the Scottish Junior Cup

, a national cup competition. The first three winners of the Scottish Junior Cup all joined the SFA and stepped up to Senior level. Gradually, a number of Junior leagues grew in strength, particularly in Glasgow where leading clubs drew large crowds. The Glasgow Junior FA having seen a number of its proposals rejected at SJFA meetings seceded from the SJFA in 1907 but returned a year later. Further disputes occurred in 1922 over "poaching" clubs and in 1927, the GJFA was instrumental in the Intermediate dispute
Intermediate dispute
The Intermediate dispute was a major split in Scottish football which lasted from 1925 to 1931 and concerned the compensation that Junior clubs received when one of their players moved to a Senior football league side...

 which split the SJFA for four seasons. The record number of clubs to enter the Junior Cup was four hundred and twelve in 1922–23.

The local associations continued to run their leagues until 1968, when the SJFA instituted major reforms, running all the leagues itself, removing the need for the many local associations, replacing them instead with six district committees. These six regions — Ayrshire, Central, East, Fife, Tayside and North — still exist to a certain extent, as divisions in the national league structure and as operators of many cup competitions.

The last major league reform took place in 2002, with the six districts "merging" to create a three-pronged league setup (see "Organisation and regions").

A further reform took place in June 2007. The Scottish Cup

Name


The term "Junior" does not relate to the age of players. Football for youngsters is generally known as "Youth" (up to Under-19) or "Juvenile" (which is to Under-21 level) football. In the late 19th century, membership of the SFA conferred "Senior" status on a club and the Junior grade developed outwith the SFA framework. Today, the Senior grade of football in Scotland is played in the Scottish Premier League

. Over time, as various local football associations and leagues, both Junior and Senior, have risen in strength or in some cases disappeared completely, Scottish football developed its current pattern with either Junior or Senior non-leagues taking precedence in various parts of the country with some occasional overlap. Nowadays, membership of the SJFA automatically confers on a club, registered membership of the SFA, however Junior and Senior non-league clubs still play in separate competitions.

Organisation and regions


The main league structure is organised on a geographical basis, with the 164 member clubs being split into three regions:
  • West Region (64 clubs)
  • East Region (63 clubs)
  • North Region (37 clubs)


Each region contains several divisions, the East and West regions also being split into further geographical sections in the lower divisions. This is a remnant of the pre–2002 system in which there were six district committee setups that comprised the leagues. Pressure to create more competitive leagues and a higher number of "big games" caused the rationalisation to three main district leagues.

Cup competitions


As well as the local leagues, there are a number of local cup competitions competed for; however, the biggest competition is the Scottish Junior Cup
