Glasgow League

Formed in 1895 this was one of several 'supplementary leagues' that were created in order to increase the number of fixtures for Scottish Football League clubs. Although it disbanded in 1899 when the member clubs joined with Heart of Midlothian and Hibernian to form the Inter City League, it was reformed in 1904 but this lasted for only two seasons.

Sources: Stuart Robertson (results 1895-1899), Frank Hannaway, Graham Deans and Forrest Robertson.
