ARCHIVE WOMEN'S FOOTBALL - SCOTTISH
« on: April 17, 2014, 10:21:55 AM »
Does anyone know of an archive containing past tables of any women's football league from Scotland.   Believe the first league was started in 1996, is this true?

Is there anyone interested in women's football, north of the border?

Hi Nic I'm currently working on the history of women's football and trying to find early results has been a real challenge and cataloguing the dead sea scrolls would have been a much easier job I would suspect.  But the first league was for the 1972/73 season and was won by Westthorn Utd who had Rose Reilly in their ranks...The first Scottish Cup was in 1971 and was won by Stewarton Thistle....

Sorry for late reply but I just spotted this

I've got a Scotland v Wales programme from 2.6.1996 and it lists these clubs in the Senior First Division:

Aberdeen LFC
Bonnyrigg Rose
Clyde LFC
Maryhill Eagles
Coltness
Cumbernauld LFC
Cove Rangers
Monklands LFC
Newtongrange Star
Stewarton Thistle

It doesn't say anything about the league starting then though
