Vice President – Mr Barron (Orion)

Secretary and Treasurer – Mr A Duncan, jr (Aberdeen)

[Table as of 26 Nov, with known subsequent results added]

 

The league appears to have collapsed soon after Peterhead’s 27-0 win as no results or games were reported in the press, and Peterhead may have probably claimed the title.

 

The league was re-formed in 1919 as the North Eastern League. It was renamed the Aberdeenshire League in 1921. It was also known as the Aberdeen & District League. The league was soon viewed as a secondary competition to the Highland League and disbanded in 1953. It reformed in 1994 as an Under 21 league.
