Download from Google Play Store to your phone here

A comprehensive User Guide (pdf) for this release is available here. I’d recommend reading this in order to enjoy all of the app’s features.

This is a non-commercial, ad-free Android Phone App, featuring:

  • Information on all past and present league clubs, from Aberdeen to Vale of Leven
  • Images of current club strips or that worn by former clubs prior to leaving the league
  • Club League appearances and titles summary
  • Selectable season-by-season club final standings for quick full table and results access
  • Miscellaneous records for both Tier 1 and All Tiers leagues, e.g. highest win, defeat etc.
  • Display of historic ground locations, where known, on present and old offline maps
  • Quick launch of clubs’ official websites and history pages
  • League tables and results for all divisions from 1890 to 2022

    Known Issues

  • Authentication related issue reported by Google’s testing with Sharp AQUOS sense2 SH-01L Android 9 (SDK 28) device. Failure also reported by a third party so not being considered an app issue at this time.
