Border Amateur League

In 1901 the Border Amateur League was formed. Using the trophy of the Shieldfield Cup competition, it was centred around Berwickshire, being a mixture of Scottish and English clubs. This was a different competition from the Border Senior League that existed to the west. The league was re-formed as a non-senior competition in 1936.

 

In 1905-06 a third Border League was played, this was based in Cumberland and appears to have lasted one season.
