EoSL Premier Division 22-23

The East of Scotland League’s Premier Division sits at Tier 6 of the SFA’s “pyramid”, below the Lowland League and parallel with the West of Scotland League Premier Division and South of Scotland League.

The division has slimmed down from eighteen to sixteen clubs this season, who will play each other twice to give a league programme of 30 games. 

There is no automatic promotion from the East of Scotland League, though the champions play off against the West of Scotland and South of Scotland League champions for a place in the Lowland League as Tranent Juniors successfully did last season.

2022-23 COMPETITION (2019-20, 2020-21, 2021-22)

Participating clubs: Blackburn United, Broxburn Athletic, Crossgates Primrose, Dundonald Bluebell, Haddington Athletic, Hill of Beath Hawthorn, Inverkeithing Hillfield Swifts, Jeanfield Swifts, Linlithgow Rose, Lothian Thistle HV, Musselburgh Athletic, Oakley United, Penicuik Athletic, Sauchie Juniors, Tynecastle, Vale of Leithen
