Welcome to the website of The Scottish Sun Lowland Football League.
The Scottish Sun Lowland Football League (commonly known as the Lowland League) is a newly-created league of 12 football clubs operating in the Scottish Lowlands, to be drawn from teams previously competing in the South of Scotland, East of Scotland and Junior leagues.
The Lowland League was founded by a unanimous vote of members of the Scottish FA on 11 June 2013, who had for some time intended on instituting a football pyramid including promotion and relegation from Scottish football’s senior divisions down to its junior and amateur levels.
While most clubs were invited to submit bids to join, Preston Athletic, Spartans and Threave Rovers were offered automatic entry as they were already fully licensed by the Scottish FA.
While 27 clubs had registered their interest, the Lowland League received 17 applications to join. After the meeting on 17 June, it was announced there would be 12 teams in the league, and that they would be Dalbeattie Star, East Kilbride, Edinburgh City, Gala Fairydean Rovers, Gretna 2008, Preston Athletic, Selkirk, Spartans, Stirling University, Threave Rovers, Vale of Leithen & Whitehill Welfare.
The member clubs agreed to appoint a Board to run the league and this Board is made up of:
Chairperson: Andrew Waddell
Vice Chairperson: Andrew Renwick
Treasurer: Craig Williamson
Board Members: John McCabe, Andrew MacDonald. Kenny Murray
As well as this the Board have a appointed a Secretarial team who are David Baxter, Richard Osborne, Kenneth McLean and Thomas Brown. The Secretarial team are responsible for administering the League, Publicity, Communications, Fixtures and all administration duties.
