North Western Junior League

Formed in the summer of 1898 by ten Lanarkshire clubs in the Coatbridge area, the latter part of the season saw the league reported as being allowed to drift. With the clubs being left to arrange their own matches, it was uncertain whether the fixture list would be completed.  After a number of clubs were rejected at the Lanarkshire Junior Leagueís AGM, six clubs attempted to carry on the league into a second season. To this end a trophy was donated by a Mr Wotherspoon to be called the ĎNorth Western and Wotherspoon Cupí. However itís uncertain whether the league entered a second season.

The accompanying league table was researched by the late Jackie Heaney and kindly supplied by Stewart Davidson.
