Farsley Celtic was formed in 1908 by a group of local village lads. In their infancy the club played in local leagues and Hospital Cups.

After the Second World War the club purchased their current ground from the local council, where they played their first match in 1948 against Frickley Athletic.

On May 27th 2009, it was announced by club president John Palmer that the club were "owing at least £200,000 in unpaid taxes". Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs told the club that they would have to attend a 'winding-up' hearing at the high court of London and refused a request to adjurn the hearing pending on the formal appointment of an administrator. It looked like it was going to be the end of the 101-year-old club but on the evening of June 30th it was announced that the club would enter administration with Robert Adamson and Philip Lyon of Mazars LLP, which meant the club would not have to travel to the hearing the following day. However, in March 2010, after agreement between a consortium and the administrator for the takeover of the club could not be reached, the club was disbanded. The club was later removed from the Football Conference North and their playing record for the 2009-10 season expunged.

Following Celtic's demise, a new club was created to replace them. Named Farsley AFC, they will play in the Northern Counties East League in the 2010-2011 season.

Founded: 1993, folded 2006, re-formed 2006
Nickname: The Cottagers
Stadium: The Gore
Stadium Address: Burnham Football Club, Wymers Wood Road, Burnham SL1 8JG

History:
Their debut came in 1993 in the Greater London Division, and quickly rose to the heights of the FA Women's National Premier League, via the Greater London Premier Division, the South East Combination League and the Southern Premier League. They first reached the FA Women's Cup final in 2001.

In the 2001/02 season, where they won promotion to the Premiership, they also won the London County Cup, the Premier League Cup and the FA Women's Cup, scoring 342 goals in an amazing season, conceding just 15. This was their first season as a Professional team.

They won the treble of FA Cup, League Cup and Premier League in 2002/03, scoring 68 goals and conceding just 13. Last season they were the only English team to compete in the UEFA Women's European Cup, and they came 2nd in the Premier League.

During the 2005–2006 season, having lost most of their squad to a variety of factors (such as the choice to revert to semi-professional status), they struggled in the league, finishing eighth.

On May 16, 2006, Fulham announced that they were withdrawing the team from the Women's Premiership and discontinuing the team altogether. The decision to dissolve the team was made on financial grounds, with Fulham officially laying the blame on a poor media coverage and poor league attendance. Fulham F.C. did announce plans to continue its Girls Development Centre, but clearly stated they would not be fielding any further league teams in the foreseeable future.

Following the withdrawal of the funding of the Ladies, Fulham Football Club agreed to allow club officers, parents and players to take over the reins in order that the team could continue playing at the highest level of women's football - the Women's Premier League. The same fate had befallen several other ladies teams in recent years. As there is now no connection with Fulham FC, it was decided to alter the club's name to Fulham WFC and then WFC Fulham, in order to make this separation clear.
The new committee was presented with a number of difficult problems to solve. Fortunately, with much hard work, these were overcome and in a very short space of time, the new committee moved mountains and obtained the following:
Funding via generous donations and sponsorships;
FA and Surrey County FA affiliations;
A home ground at Burnham FC;
A back-up ground at Marlow FC;
A reserve team pitch at Burnham Grammar School;
Training facilities at the Kingsmeadow Athletics Stadium, Kingston;
A fully staffed management team of first and reserve team coaches and physiotherapists, a director of football and a fitness coach (with the availability of a performance analyst, nutritionist and sports psychologist if required);
A squad of 40 players for the two teams;
Mini-bus transport for first team and reserve away games;
Playing, match day and training kits and equipment;
A programme for all home games;
A club website at www.fulhamwfc.com

The new committee was presented with a number of difficult problems to solve. Season 2006-2007 saw the club survive, albeit with the relegation of the first team from the Premier League National Division, but with the bonus of a County Cup final appearance. The team bounced straight back by winning the Premier League Southern Division in 2007-08, thanks largely to the goals of Ann-Marie Heatherson.

In 2008–09, WFC Fulham finished 12th and were relegated from the National Division. Another relegation into the Combination League followed in 2009-10 and the club folded due to the withdrawal of their sponsors.

Country:   Scotland
Founded: 1877
Folded: 29-Mar-1922
Stadium: New Ralston
Stadium Address: Paisley

History:
Abercorn Football Club was a football (soccer) club based in Paisley, Scotland. They were formed on November 10, 1877 with an initial membership of 200, a few months after St Mirren had been formed in the town. The team's strip (uniform) colours were blue and white stripes.

Home matches were initially played at East Park (1877-79) before moving onto Blackstoun Park (1879-89). In 1887 they managed to make their first semi-final of the Scottish Cup, losing out to Cambuslang by an embarrassing 10-1 scoreline, which is a joint record margin defeat for the semi-final stage of the Scottish Cup. They would repeat the achievement of reaching the cup semi-finals in each of their next two seasons.

In 1889 they moved to Underwood Park, and it was whilst playing there they became initial members of the Scottish Football League in season 1890-91. The club finished the inaugural season of the league in seventh place out of ten, but had the satisfaction of finishing ahead of St Mirren, who ended in eighth place.

In 1899 the club moved from Underwood Park to their Old Ralston ground.

The club remained continuous members of the Scottish Football League until 1915, when they transferred to the Western League. Their time as a full League club was fairly undistiguished, their only real achievements being the winning of two second division championships. Consequently St Mirren were able to establish themselves as Paisley's primary club, with Abercorn very much being the town's second team. Nonetheless, of the Scottish Football League's former members, they are the sixth longest serving club after Airdrie, Third Lanark, St Bernard's F.C., Leith Athletic and Clydebank.

The last big achievement of the club was winning the Scottish Qualifying Cup in the 1912/13 season. During their run in this competition the club got its highest attendance at their New Ralston ground--which they had moved to in 1909--when 7,000 spectators attended the semi-final match with Nithsdale Wanderers.

The club played in the Western League from 1915-16 until 1919-20 when their lease on their New Ralston ground ended. It is unclear why no new ground was secured, but this effectively spelled the end of Abercorn. Despite not being entered in any league competition they played one game in season 1920-21, a Scottish Cup defeat away to Vale of Leven. 2,000 spectators witnessed this, the last game that Abercorn played, which resulted in an 8-2 victory for Vale of Leven.

Abercorn retained membership of the Scottish Football Association until March 29, 1922 when they were disbarred for failing to secure their own private home ground. Effectively though the club was defunct in 1920 when it played its last game.

Formed 1877. Defunct 1920.

Grounds: 1877-1879 East Park. 1879-1889 Blackstoun Park. 1889-1899 Underwood Park. 1899-1909 Old Ralston. 1909-1920 New Ralston.

Stadium: Excelsior Stadium
Stadium Address: Broomfield Park, Craigneuk Avenue, Airdrie ML6 8QZ

History:
Airdrieonians Football Club, more commonly known as 'Airdrie' were a Scottish professional football team from the town of Airdrie, in the Monklands area of Lanarkshire.

The team was founded in Airdrie, North Lanarkshire in 1878 as Excelsior Football Club, changing its name to Airdrieonians in 1881. The club enjoyed its most successful era in the 1920s following the signing of Hughie Gallacher from Queen of the South F.C. in 1921. Airdrie finished in second place in the Scottish League Championship four years in a row in between 1923 and 1926 as well as winning the Scottish Cup in 1924. Following this victory, in early summer 1925, the club visited Norway and Sweden, and made a big impression. Translations of local newspaper reports, and some photographs of the tour, are still available. Gallacher was on board until 1925. It was while at Airdrie in 1924 that the future member of the Wembley Wizards won his first international cap.

The club became defunct at the end of the Scottish Football League 2001/02 season, despite the team finishing as runners-up in the SFL First Division to Partick Thistle and therefore only narrowly missing out on promotion to the Scottish Premier League.

The club finally went out of business officially on 1 May 2002 due to its overwhelming debts. The final match played by Airdrieonians Football Club was an away game against Ayr United at Somerset Park. The match was abandoned by the referee after a crossbar was broken during a protest pitch invasion, and was never replayed.

After the club went out of business, a local fan, Jim Ballantyne, attempted to gain entry to the SFL with a team by the name of Airdrie United Football Club, effectively a direct replacement of Airdrieonians (similar to the way that Fiorentina re-established themselves as Florentia Viola following their own collapse under crippling debt). Airdrie United's initial bid for league status was rejected, however, as the member clubs had already accepted the application of Gretna Football Club, who were then playing in the English UniBond League. In desperation, Ballantyne opted to buy control of Clydebank, another Scottish football club experiencing extreme financial hardship and, with SFL approval, the club's name was changed to Airdrie United, the team relocated to Airdrie and the strip was altered to the famous diamond style of Airdrieonians. Airdrie United are predominantly viewed as a continuation of Airdrieonians, with the majority of the same supporters attending Airdrie United matches and the new club taking up the position of rivals to clubs such as Motherwell, Hamilton, Clyde and Partick Thistle who, historically, had had long standing enmity with Airdrieonians Football Club.

During their one hundred and twenty four year existence the "Diamonds", as they were nicknamed, won the old Scottish Division Two three times, the Spring Cup once and the Scottish Challenge Cup on three occasions. The club also competed in four separate Scottish Cup finals; winning the competition in 1924.

Airdrieonians were the first club in the Scottish League to fold since 1967, when Third Lanark went bankrupt. Meadowbank Thistle disappeared in 1995, but were relocated and reformed as Livingston.

History:
Armadale F.C. were a Scottish football club based at Volunteer Park in Armadale, West Lothian. The club were former members of the Scottish Football League.

The club was formed in 1910 and played in the Eastern Football Alliance before joining the Central Football League in 1911. They established themselves as one of the strongest temas in this competition, taking the title in both 1913-14 and 1914-15. They went on to play in the Eastern Football League, winning that competition in 1915-16, before returning to the Central. They were soon established as a strong side and took league club Albion Rovers to a third replay in the Scottish Cup in 1920-21.

Established as one of the country's leading non-league sides, Armadale were admitted to the newly expanded Scottish Football League Second Division in 1921. The club finished third in their first season but this was not to last and they soon became on of the weaker teams in the league. Struggling for income at a time of high unemployment, the club suggested allowing a reduced rate of 6d for the unemployed to enter matches but the plan was vetoed by the League and the club's money worries mounted up. They were further hit financially when a League inspection team found that the dog-racing track at Volunteer Park encroached onto the pitch too much and ordered an end to the sport. The club's form on the pitch was weak as well, with a league game against Arthurlie F.C. on 1st October 1927 seeing Owen McNally set a Scottish League record (since equalled) by scoring eight goals against a hapless Armadale. Failure to provide match guarantees to visiting teams saw the club expelled during the 1932-33 season. The club soon disappeared, replaced in the town by Armadale Thistle F.C..

Formed 1879. Defunct 1894. Reformed 1910. Defunct 1935. (1893-1894 Armadale Thistle. 1888-1900 Armadale Volunteers).

History:
Ayr Parkhouse Football Club was a football (soccer) club from the town of Ayr in Scotland. They were formed in 1886 and took their name from the Parkhouse farmhouse where the club's players trained.

They initially played their home games at Ballantyne Drive, before moving to the Ayr Racecourse ground. In 1888 Ayr F.C. vacated the better developed Beresford Park, and Ayr Parkhouse moved in, where they played for the remainder of their existence. In 1891 they joined the Ayrshire Football League, but moved onto the Ayrshire Football Combination in 1893, of which they were founder members along with Ayr F.C. with whom they would develop a healthy rivalry.

Around this time the Scottish Football Association sanctioned the advent of professionalism. However, Ayr Parkhouse took the decision to remain a faithfully amateur club, only turning professional in 1905. Despite the clubs amateur status they were competing well in their league and starting to perform well in Scottish Cup competition, reaching the quarter finals of the competition in season 1894-95 where they fell to that year's runners-up Renton F.C..

Local success continued, but the rivalry that was built up with Ayr F.C. ceased to have a regular outlet when that club were admitted to membership of the Scottish Football League in 1897. Ayr Parkhouse's ambitions were beginning to outgrow their local successes and the club's early amateur fuelled hostility to membership of the Scottish Football League was waning. In 1901 they unsuccessfully applied for membership, but after finishing second in the Scottish Amateur Football League the following year they managed to get elected to full league status just ahead of St Johnstone F.C..

Their initial season in the league was a disaster. They finished bottom of the second division and had to reapply for membership which they were refused at the expense of Aberdeen F.C.. However, after the event it came to be known after that Ayr F.C. had lobbied all the member clubs of the league to vote against Ayr Parkhouse's application to remain league members. Relations between the clubs was poor after this incident.

After a season outwith the league playing in the Scottish Football Combination the club was accepted back into the Second Division in time for season 1906-07. The club performed without much distinction in the following seasons, with Ayr F.C. doing only marginally better. Pressure was being applied by many for the two clubs to amalgamate and at the end of season 1909-10 when Ayr F.C. finished 7th out of 12 in the Second Division, and Ayr Parkhouse finished 12th the clubs took the decision to merge as Ayr United F.C. who remain a member of the Scottish Football League to this day.

Formed 1886. Defunct 1910.

Grounds: 1886 Ballantyne Drive, 1886-1888 Racecourse (Old). 1888-1910 Beresford Park.

History:
Bathgate F.C. were a Scottish football club based at Mill Park in Bathgate. The club were former members of the Scottish Football League.

The club was formed in 1893 and joined the Central Football Combination in 1902before joining the Central Football League in 1902 before dividing their time between various minor leagues. They returned to this league by 1919 and as a result were incoporated into the Scottish Football League Second Division in 1921 when most of the membership of the Central League made the same move. The club initially looked strong but soon found themselves dogged by financial problems and were further hit in 1924 when Larkhall Thistle brought a case against them for poaching their players, in what was effectively a test case by a junior side against this standard senior club practice. Finances were further damaged by the severe downturn in gates during the miners strike and ultimately the club was forced to resign during the course of the 1928-29 season. The club continued at various levels until 1938.

Formed 1893. Defunct 1938.

Around this time the club featured goalkeeper Hugh McDonald, who would go on to some success at Woolwich Arsenal. They eventually ended up in the Western League, which was incorporated by the Scottish Football League as its new Third Division for the 1923-24 season. Beith lasted the Division's three seasons, finishing 7th, 13th and 12th, but were not retained by the League. The club joined the Scottish Football Alliance and initially thrived somewhat, winning the Scottish Qualifying Cup in 1928.

The club was formed in 1882 and joined the ill-fated Eastern Football Alliance in 1891, the league failing to complete its first season. They returned to competitive football in 1901 as members of the Central Football Combination and eventually ended up in the Central Football League. Along with much of the membership of this group they were admitted to the newly expanded Scottish Football League Second Division in 1921. Something of a mid-table side, the small town club struggled financially until failure to provide match guarantees to visiting teams saw the club expelled during the 1932-33 season.

Unlike many other clubs that faced expulsion Bo'ness continued as a non-league side, appearing in the Scottish Football Alliance, Edinburgh and District League, Scottish Football Combination and the East of Scotland Football League. Future Scotland international Alex Munro also came through the club's ranks at this time. The club survived World War II but merged with local side Bo'ness Cadora F.C. to form Bo'ness United F.C. in 1945.

Formed 1881. 1982 Amalgamated with Vale of Kinnell. 1945 Merged with Bo'ness Cadora as Junior club Bo'ness United.

Grounds: 1881-1885 Field at site of Parish church. 1885-1886 Soo & Cra Park Bo'ness. 1886-to date Newtown Park.

History:
Broxburn United were a Scottish football club based at Sports Park Broxburn, West Lothian formed by the amalgamation of the town's two senior clubs Broxburn F.C. and Broxburn Athletic in 1912. The club were former members of the Scottish Football League.

Broxburn F.C. were founded in 1883 as Broxburn Thistle, adopting their regular name in 1889. The club was the more senior of the town's two teams and first came to attention as members of the Eastern League in 1891-92. The club went on to appear in many of the top competitions below the Scottish Football League in subsequent seasons, appearing in the Central Football Combination, the Scottish Football Alliance, the Scottish Football Union and the Central Football League.

Broxburn Athletic F.C., the less successful of the town's clubs, appeared in the Eastern Football League in 1905-06 and the Central Football League 1909-10. They should not be confused with the current junior side Broxburn Athletic F.C.

Broxburn United emerged in 1912 when it became clear that a small town like Broxburn could no longer support two senior sides. United became members of the Central Football League (apart from a spell in the Eastern Football League from 1915 to 1917) and along with much of the membership of this group they were admitted to the newly expanded Scottish Football League Second Division in 1921. However the club's interest in the League seemed limited and they were censured in 1922 for fielding only two first team players against St Bernard's F.C. as they were more interested in cup competitions. It was thus unsurprising that the club struggled in the League and finished bottom during the 1925-26 season. Facing re-election, they were rejected in favour of Forfar Athletic and dropped out of the League.

During their League career the club became embroiled controversy when Stenhousemuir F.C. player Joe Shortt reported to the League that he had been offered £50 by the representatives of a bookmaker from Glasgow to play poorly in a match against Broxburn United. Ultimately the club were exonerated of all involvement, although the incident hardened the League's attitudes towards gambling and helped to bring about their moves to drive animal racing away from League grounds, a move which cost a number of clubs their main source of income.

Broxburn United joined the Scottish Football Alliance for the 1926-27 season but found this level to be too financially taxing and soon joined the ranks of Scottish junior football by joining the Midlothian Junior League. The club continued until 1932 when financial troubles finally claimed them.

History:
Clackmannan F.C. were a Scottish football club best known for the four seasons they spent in the Scottish League in the 1920s.

Clackmannan inflicted Dunfermline Athletic's record defeat, 17-2 in the Midland League in 1891.

Clackmannan joined the Second Division of the Scottish League for 1921-22 when the Central League clubs formed most of this division. They finished bottom, and withdrew for a year to the Eastern League.

The club attempted to rejoin the Second Division for the 1923-24 season, but an overly confident campaign for election to the division was unsuccessful. However, Clackmannan gained admission to the new Third Division which was being started.

They played for three seasons in the Third Division without distinction. In their last season of Scottish League football (1925-26) they would have finished bottom had Galston not withdrawn halfway through the season. Indeed, the whole division folded up at the end of 1925-26, having proved unsustainable due to financial difficulties.

Clackmannan have appeared in the Scottish Cup on several occasions, mostly in the 1920s with the last being in 1931-32. The club must have folded soon after this. During this period at least, they got past the first round (last 64 in those days) on only one occasion, and even this was after the withdrawal of an opponent.

Clackmannan's ground at least during the Scottish League days was Chapelhill Park. The club played in blue and white hoops throughout its existence.

Between 1962 and 1995, another club called Clackmannan F.C. played Junior football in the Fife League, without enjoying much success.

Formed 1885. Defunct 1904. Reformed 1907. Defunct 1931.

    Crest for Clydebank is needed    
Country:   Scotland
Founded: 1888, 1914, 1965
Folded: 1902, 1932, 2002

History:
First Incarnation:
They were the first senior club to represent the town, playing home matches at Hamilton Park. They entered the Scottish Cup several times, making their last appearance in the competition proper in 1893-94. In addition they were members of the Scottish Federation (league) from 1891 to 1893. Although they retained their membership of the Scottish Football Association (SFA) as late as 1902, they were practically defunct by this stage. The team competed in the Glasgow Cup for these four years.


Second Incarnation:
The first club to represent Clydebank (which was a rapidly developing industrial "boom town" at this time) in the Scottish League, the second senior Clydebank F.C. were newly formed when elected to Division Two in 1914. Unfortunately for them, the lower division closed down a year later due to the impact of the First World War, but after two years playing in the Western League they had better fortune when they were elevated directly to the top flight, three clubs from the north and east of the country having been forced to stand down for the duration of the war due to travel difficulties. The economic boost the war had given to Clydebank's shipyards and factories was probably a contributory factor to the local team being chosen to fill the vacancy.

The club lasted five seasons before being relegated in 1922. They were immediately promoted back to Division One but relegated again after one season. The economic downturn in the latter half of the 1920s affected the town and the club badly, to the extent that the club considered resigning from league football in 1929. They chose to continue at that time but it proved to be only a stay of execution, with financial difficulties forcing the club to drop out of the League in July 1931. The club was out of football completely within a year.

Throughout their existence, they played at Clydeholm Park, which continued to exist after their demise as a venue for greyhound racing up to the 1960s. The most famous player to appear for the club was Jimmy McGrory, the Scottish League's all-time record goalscorer, who spent the 1923-24 season on loan to Clydebank from Celtic, scoring 13 of his 397 career league goals while at Clydeholm.


Third Incarnation:
In 1964 the Steedman brothers, owners of East Stirlingshire, controversially merged their club with Clydebank Juniors. The new club (whose name was usually abbreviated to E.S. Clydebank) inherited Shire's place in Division Two, playing home matches at Kilbowie. After a year, a legal challenge by East Stirlingshire supporters led to them resuming their former identity back in Falkirk. The Steedmans elected to remain at Clydebank, establishing a new club at senior level. E.S. Clydebank's single season is generally considered by historians and statisticians as a contiguous part of East Stirlingshire's record, as the merged club was never elected to the SFA or League in its own right.

The second Clydebank F.C. to play Scottish League football was formed in 1965 by the Steedman brothers, who were still convinced of the potential for senior football in the town despite the abortive merger. Although in many senses a resumption of Clydebank Juniors, albeit at a different level, they were technically a brand new club. Clydebank had to wait a year in the Combined Reserve League competing against Jordanhill Training College, Glasgow Transport, and the Third XI's of the Old Firm before being elected to the Scottish League in 1966.

Clydebank achieved considerable success in their 35 years as a Scottish League club. They spent three seasons in the Premier Division, becoming the first club to play in all three Scottish League divisions after league reconstruction in 1975. Clydebank also reached the Scottish Cup semi-final in 1990 while playing in the First Division.

They were also the first (and last) senior club of the Scottish international Davie Cooper, who went on to play for Rangers and Motherwell. Cooper was still a Clydebank player when he died in March 1995, aged 39, after suffering a brain hemorrhage. He was due to retire at the end of that season and become the club's first-team coach.

The club's fortunes began to decline after New Kilbowie was sold by the Steedmans in 1996 and a promised new stadium in the town failed to materialise. Clydebank spent six years playing "home" games at first Boghead Park, Dumbarton, followed by Cappielow Park, Greenock, with the inevitable decline in support.

This latter part of the club's existence also saw them embroiled in a number of schemes by investors who had no interest in Clydebank FC whatsoever. In a graveyard echo of the events of 1964 (and some would argue that of Third Lanark in 1967), they saw the club merely as a "ticket" to get a club in the Scottish League that would be based elsewhere.

The majority shareholder at the time, Mr John Hall, made a number of attempts to relocate the club as a franchise to a number of alternative towns - including Dublin, Galashiels and Carlisle. During this period, the club was reduced to operating from a single cramped portable cabin.

The club's SFL and SFA identity finally disappeared in 2002, when a new club Airdrie United bought over the ailing Clydebank and took over their place in the League.

Founded: 1876

Stadium: Arrol Park
Stadium Address: Cowlairs

History:
Cowlairs Football Club was a 19th century football club from Glasgow, Scotland. One of the founder members of the Scottish Football League in 1890, the club was based in Cowlairs, in the Springburn area of the city.

Cowlairs were formed in 1876, in an area that was growing rapidly due to its importance to Glasgow's railway industry. In their early years they were members of the West of Scotland FA and were looked on as a junior club. This was at a time when "junior" was merely a term used to describe smaller clubs of limited standing in the game, and prior to the establishment of a separate Junior grade of competition. The club entered the Scottish Cup for the first time in 1880-81, reaching the fourth round.

By the latter part of the decade, Cowlairs' reputation for was growing. In 1886-87 they entered the English FA Cup (which was open to Scottish clubs at this time), ironically losing out to fellow Glaswegians Rangers in their only tie. The club had players of sufficient standing in this period to have two of their number gain international recognition for Scotland: Tommy McInnes, capped once in 1889, and John McPherson, who won two of his nine caps while at Cowlairs, in 1889 and 1890.

Cowlairs were one of the clubs who then banded together to form the Scottish League, but finished bottom of the table at the end of its first season, their cause not helped by having four points deducted for fielding ineligible players. With the club also facing accusations of professionalism (which had yet to be legalised in Scottish football) following an inspection of clubs' books by the League, it was unsurprising that Cowlairs were unsuccessful in their re-election vote, losing out to Leith Athletic. Despite not being in any league competition the following season, the club enjoyed their longest Scottish Cup run, losing to Celtic in the quarter finals.

For season 1892-93, Cowlairs joined the Scottish Alliance, finishing as champions. Although they failed to be elected back in to the top flight of the Scottish League at the season's end, they were instead chosen to join the new Division Two for season 1893-94. They lost 1-0 in the final of the 1894 Glasgow Cup to Rangers F.C.

Their return to League football started well, securing runners-up spot that season, although they weren't elected to Division One. They continued to be beset by financial and administrative problems, however, and after another last-placed finish in 1895, they were once again voted out of League membership. This effectively brought an end to Cowlairs' brief career, the club closing down in 1896.

In their early years, Cowlairs played home matches at Gourlay Park. Indicative of the more informal standards of the day, the club actually had no permanent home ground secured at the time of them co-founding the Scottish League, but soon after settled at nearby Springfield Park, home for the duration of their League membership.

1876-1890: Gourlay Park. 1890-1895: Springfield Park. 1895-1896: Arrol Park.

History:
Dumbarton Harp Football Club were a football (soccer) club based in the town of Dumbarton in the west of Scotland. They were formed in 1894 by Irish catholic immigrants to the area in a similar way to the formation of Celtic in Glasgow and Hibernian in Edinburgh.

There was also a junior club at the same time as Dumbarton Harp, formed in 1906. Their first game was against "Corinthians" (probably the local "Dumbarton Corinthians" that were around at this time) on August 22, 1906, losing 2-1.

They played the majority of their existence in local football leagues, such as the Glasgow and District Junior League, which they joined in their inaugural season, or the Inter County Football League in season 1916-17. In 1910 they were champions of the Scottish Football Union which they left in 1912 to participate in the Scottish Reserve Football League. They did play for a short spell in the Scottish Football League when it expanded to a three division set up in the 1920s. They finished tenth (out of 16 clubs) in the inaugural third division in season 1923-34, but withdrew midaway through the following season when it became clear they could not meet their financial commitments.

They played on for a while longer, again in local leagues, but had become defunct by around 1936. One item of trivia about Dumbarton Harp is that they were the first team to score a goal at Partick Thistle's home ground of Firhill Stadium in a Scottish Cup encounter in 1909. They ultimately went on to lose the game 3-1 however.

The name Dumbarton Harp lives on as a Celtic Supporters Club, and also as a local amateur football club of the same name.

Dumbarton Harp played at Meadow Park in the centre of the town, close to Dumbarton Central railway station. The site of Meadow Park is still in use for football.

History:
Dundee Wanderers were a Scottish football club based in Dundee. The club were briefly members of the Scottish Football League Second Division. Their home ground was Clepington Park.

The club was formed in 1885, merging with local club Strathmore F.C. in 1891 when they took the name Johnstone Wanderers. Reverting to their original name in 1894, they spent the 1894-95 season as members of the Scottish League, finishing ninth out of ten. Their performance might well have been worse had they not been awarded two points after Renton F.C. failed to fulfil a fixture against the club (who were thus awarded the two points), with the Dumbartonshire side instead opting for a glamour friendly against Queen's Park F.C. Wanderers brief sojourn in the Scottish League did produce one record that still stands, however, with the club's 15-1 away defeat to Airdrieonians F.C. being the heaviest defeat in Scottish League history.

They failed to secure re-election for the following season and so returned to the Northern League where they competed regularly until folding during the 1912-13 season.

Dykehead F.C. were a Scottish football club based in the Dykehead area of Shotts, playing their home games at Parkside. The club were members of the Scottish Football League Third Division.

The early history of the club is somewhat shrouded in mystery, although they were formed in 1880 but did not register with the Scottish Football Association until four years later. The club briefly competed in the Scottish Football Alliance, as well as the Eastern Football League, the Inter County Football League and the Scottish Football Union, which they won in 1912-13.

They eventually ended up in the Western League, which was incorporated by the Scottish Football League as its new Third Division for the 1923-24 season. Dykehead lasted the Division's three seasons, finishing 5th, 12th and 4th, but were not retained by the League. They continued until 1928 when they were wound up.

History:
Edinburgh City Football Club is a semi-professional senior Scottish football team who play in the East of Scotland Football League.

They were founded in 1928 although the initial incarnation ceased to be in mid-1950s. The club had aimed to become the Edinburgh equivalent of the Glasgow club Queen's Park F.C., and similarly joined the Scottish Football League as an amateur club in 1931. The Edinburgh City Football Club Ltd (Social Club), which had continue throughout the abeyance of the football side itself, gave their approval in 1986 to local side Postal United allowing them to use the Edinburgh City name.

It was tough going for City in the early years and they were never able to emulate the success of Queen's Park and for most of their time as league members they finished near the bottom of the league table each season.

Their most celebrated victory was beating Hibernian 3-2 away at Easter Road in the First Round of the Scottish Cup on 22 January 1938. Milne missed a penalty with 5 minutes to go for the home side. In the next round they lost 9-2 away to Raith Rovers on 9 February 1938.

They remained a league member until 1949 when financial considerations forced a switch to junior status, and they were wound up in 1955.

History:
Galston F.C. were a Scottish football club based at Portland Park in Galston, East Ayrshire. The club were members of the Scottish Football League Third Division.

Formed in 1891 to play in the new Ayrshire Football League, they lasted in that competition for its four year run before joining the Ayrshire Football Combination. After three years without regular competition the club joined the North Ayrshire League, later appearing in the Scottish Football Combination and Scottish Football Union.

They eventually joined the Western league, which was incorporated by the Scottish Football League as its new Third Division for the 1923-24 season. Galston lasted the Division's three seasons, finishing 13th, 11th and 16th, although they resigned midway through the chaotic final season, unable to provide match guarantees. Indeed Galston had been so keen to increase the income from their meagre gates that were censured by the League for charging entrance fees below the minimum agreed league level, then in turn blamed for accelerating the collapse of the Third Division by being the first to pull out from it in February 1926.

Ironically, they proved one of the lucky survivors and found themselves playing in first the West of Scotland Amateur league before being invited to join the Scottish Football Alliance from 1932 onward - a league made up of Senior Reserve teams and non-league sides which they'd been invited to join to generate more interest in a competition many Senior clubs were considering abandoning due to a lack of public interest.

However, in 1938, Hamilton Academicals proposed they and Beith F.C. were expelled and the league restricted to First Division clubs reserve teams only. Despite an impassioned plea by letter from club President James Abbott to every Scottish League side - pointing out they'd brought Beith and Galston in to prop up the league in the first place - only Ayr United, Clyde, Kilmarnock, Queen's Park and St Mirren voted to retain them and both sides were duly expelled.

Ironically, the Alliance was then abandoned and a new Reserve League set up, whereupon moves were made in 1940 for a new Scottish Football Alliance to be set up, among which the invitees were Galston and Vale Of Leven F.C., another side that had been shipwrecked by the collapse of the Third Division and whom had been in mothballs since 1929 over a lack of any Senior league to play in. Disaster stuck however after only a month's worth of games when World War 2 broke out and the league was put on indefinite hold. Without any Senior league to play in, and not interested in joining the Junior ranks, this marked the end of Galston FC.

Founded: 1946

Stadium: Raydale Park
Stadium Address: Dominion Road, Gretna DG16 5AP

History:
During the 2007-2008 season, Gretna played their home games at Motherwell's home ground of Fir Park because Raydale Park did not meet SPL standards. Their first game in the SPL was against Falkirk which ended in a 4-0 defeat for Gretna. They struggled for form, only gaining four points in their first 12 games and having to wait until 22 September 2007 for their first win in the SPL, defeating Dundee United 3-2 at Fir Park.

However during this time the club's financial situation became dire. The club had accumulated debts of nearly £4m, and owner Brooks Mileson fell ill and withdrew his financial support for the club. A confused management situation did not help. Whilst Rowan Alexander was officially still manager, Davie Irons was in control of the team. On 6 November 2007, Gretna officially sacked Rowan Alexander as manager and formally installed Irons in his position.

On 18 February 2008 it was revealed that Gretna staff, including players, had not received their wages on time. Irons and assistant manager Derek Collins both resigned from their posts the following day. Gretna director of football Mick Wadsworth, assisted by Iain Scott and Andy Smith, took charge of first-team affairs. The club went into administration on 12 March 2008 after Mileson's withdrawal of support. This resulted in a ten point deduction, meaning they had a total of only six points from 28 games on the date of entering administration. The SPL agreed to pay the players salaries until the end of the 2007-2008 season, ensuring that the club were able to complete its fixtures in the SPL.

Administration led to cost-cutting and redundancies; club captain Chris Innes was made redundant on 25 March 2008, with the club explaining that he had "attracted interest from other clubs". The following day, 22 players, including eight members of the senior squad, along with coaching staff and the former owner's son were also made redundant. Gretna were formally relegated from the SPL on 29 March 2008 after being defeated 2-0 by St Mirren at Love Street, and broke the SPL's low attendance record on 5 April 2008 in their game against Inverness, when just 431 turned up for the game. They won their final SPL game, a home match against Hearts 1-0 with a goal from Gavin Skelton, which meant they finished the season with 13 points, narrowly avoiding setting a record low points total for the SPL.

Resignation from the SFL:
It was revealed by the administrator, Wilson Field of Sheffield, that Gretna have creditors of nearly £4m and assets (Raydale Park) of less than £1m. HM Revenue and Customs is owed nearly £600,000 in total, and it was their threat to wind up the company that precipitated Gretna's move into administration. On 8 May 2008, the administrators set a deadline of 17 May 2008 for a buyer, otherwise the club would be liquidated.

After that deadline passed without a buyer making a firm offer, the remaining forty members of staff at the club were made redundant. It was also reported that the club were still negotiating with an interested buyer. On 29 May 2008, Gretna were relegated to the Third Division due to their financial struggles, with the Scottish Football League threatening expulsion should a takeover not be completed within a week. After a takeover bid fell through on 1 June 2008, the administrators confirmed the following day that they would look to sell Raydale Park to someone who will use the site for something other than football.

Gretna resigned from the Scottish Football League on 3 June 2008. The club is expected to be liquidated.

History:
Helensburgh F.C. were a Scottish football club based in Helensburgh. The club were members of the Scottish Football League Third Division.

A Helensburgh club first appeared in 1874 but this one disappeared in 1882. Two other very short-lived clubs also appeared in 1885 (reaching the semi-finals of the Scottish Cup) and 1886. A fourth incarnation was born in 1896 and eventually took up residence at the town's Ardencaple Park. They eventually joined the Western league, which was incorporated by the Scottish Football League as its new Third Division for the 1923-24 season. Helensburgh lasted the Division's three seasons, finishing 15th, 7th and 1st. Despite being the only club to fulfill all their fixtures in the final season Helensburgh were not asked to remain in the Scottish League.

Country:   Scotland
Founded: 1878

Stadium: Newfield Park
Stadium Address: Johnstone

History:
Johnstone F.C. were a Scottish football club based at Newfield Park in Johnstone. The club were former members of the Scottish Football League.

The club was formed in 1878 and, after spending time in minor leagues, joined the Scottish Football Alliance in 1894 after most of its membership had moved to the Scottish Football League Second Division. During this time the club demonstrated its potential in the Scottish Cup by beating Greenock Abstainers F.C. 20-0 in a first round tie on September 5th 1891. In subsequent seasons they would play in the North Ayrshire League and, from 1898-1905, the Scottish Football Combination. They then joined the Scottish Football Union and from this league, one of the strongest leagues outside the Scottish League at the time, they were admitted to the Scottish Football League Second Division when it was expanded for the 1912-13 season. When this competition was suspended in 1915 due to the First World War they continued in the Western League and returned to the Second Division when it was reinstated in 1921. They were relegated to the new Third Division in 1925 and when this was abandoned the following season they returned to the Football Alliance. They remained in this league until 1927 when they were wound up.

Formed 1877. Defunct 1927.

Grounds: 1876-1894 Cartland Bank. 1894-1927 Newfield Park.
    
 
      King's Park    
    Crest for King's Park is needed    
Country:   Scotland
Founded: 1875
Folded: 1953
Stadium: Forthbank Stadium
Stadium Address: Stirling

History:
King's Park FC were a football club who played in the Scottish Football League before the Second World War. Based in Stirling, they joined the League in the 1921-22 season, following the reintroduction of the Second Division and were one of 11 new members for that season.

Their finest season came in 1927-28, when they just missed promotion by one point. Their record victory was in a 12-2 league victory against Forfar Athletic on January 2 1930. In this game Jim Dyet scored eight of the club's goals, a feat made all the more remarkable by the fact that it was his debut for the club. Indeed Dyet's feat stands as British record for goals on a debut to this day. The club's other great goalscorer of the 1930s was Alex Haddow, who hit five consecutive league hat-tricks in January and February 1932. Although overall they failed to make much impact on the league. However, they were 4 times winners of the Stirlingshire Cup.

Although a middle-ranking Second Division club King's Park did at times make the headlines. Their league game against Dundee Hibernian on October 20 1923 would be the last game that club would ever play as they were re-invented as Dundee United two days later. The club became the centre of controversy in 1927 when a newspaper report suggested that their next opponents Clydebank were about to go out of business and as a consequence the attendance at the match was minimal. As a consequence King's Park held back Clydebank's cut of the gate until the Scottish League intervened. Although the issue was resolved it helped to increase support amongst the League administrators for cutting the number of clubs due to their volatile status.

When World War II started King's Park, largely as a consequence of their geographical location, dropped out of competitive football. Nonetheless, the club continued to play friendlies and, like a number of Scottish clubs who could offer higher war-time wages than their English counterparts, welcomed a number of high-profile guest players including Andy Black and Bill Shankly. The club was persuaded in 1940 to join a new Midland League for the coming season although local powerhouses Dundee declined to compete and so the league did not happen. As a consequence Managing Director Tom Fergusson put the club on hiatus in what was intended to be a temporary measure.

The fortunes of the club were hit further in 1941 when a Luftwaffe Heinkel III dropped a single Hermann bomb on Forthbank - the only German bomb to hit the town during the war, and that was believed to be merely one that had been finally successfully dislodged by the crew after becoming "stuck" in its bomb cradle when its payload had been dropped elsewhere (a not uncommon problem for bomber crews during the war).

The club did not play again after this, even though they applied to join the North Eastern League in 1944 (a request rejected due to their lack of a ground).

Amid allegations of financial impropriety with regards to payment of guest players and of money owed to local businesses for services and goods rendered, the club folded before the end of the war, on the pretext of the damage done by the bomb.

Football in the town did not disappear for long however as they were replaced by Stirling Albion, with Fergusson taking a leading role in the new club: which had to fight hard to gain a place in the Scottish League amid howls of protest by other clubs at what appeared to be King's Park using the limited company liquidation laws to set themselves up from scratch debt free at the expense of their creditors; an action which could make service providers to Scotland's other football clubs wary about allowing any sort of credit terms on which all clubs - even the Old Firm - needed in order to operate.

Although they had not played since 1940 King's Park were not officially wound up until 1953 when the War Office finally settled their claim for the bomb damage.

Ironically, their successor Stirling Albion were eventually to move back to a brand new stadium built at Forthbank in 1992.

Country:   Scotland
Founded: 1872
Folded: 1967
Nickname: Thirds, The Warriors, The Redcoats, The Hi-Hi
Stadium: Cathkin Park
Stadium Address: Glasgow

History:
Third Lanark Athletic Club was a football club that existed for 95 years between 1872 and 1967, in Glasgow, Scotland. Third Lanark was known as Thirds, the Warriors, the Redcoats and the Hi Hi. The last nickname was rumoured to have started during a match in the late 1890s, when a defender kicked the ball so high out of the ground that the crowd started screaming "High High High" and that nickname stayed with the club ever since. The fans invariably started to sing "Hi Hi Hi!" as a battle cry to encourage the team to victory during the club's matches. There was a public house called The Hi Hi Bar at the southern end of Crown Street in the Gorbals area of Glasgow, about one mile from the club's Cathkin Park stadium, until the late 1960s, after Third Lanark's demise.

One of the more successful clubs in early Scottish Football, Third Lanark was not the first major club to be declared bankrupt and dissolved. Former Scottish Cup winners Renton and near neighbours Vale of Leven suffered similar fates, although Vale of Leven was resurrected as a Junior side later on.

Third Lanark's demise was considered more remarkable as the club had finished third in Scotland's top division behind Rangers and Kilmarnock only six years before it folded, in the 1960-61 season, scoring 100 goals in the process.
