Beith Juniors (Scotland)

Beith Juniors, from the small town of Beith, some twenty miles to the west of Glasgow, were formed in 1938, out of the ashes of the former Scottish League club, Beith, who played in the short-lived original Scottish Third Division. The original club won the Scottish Qualifying Cup in 1928, and the Ayrshire Senior Cup three times.

They currently play their matches in the rather finely- named corner of the Scottish Junior game SJFA Stagecoach Superleague Premier League, which is the highest division of the West Region of the Scottish Junior FA - approximately the eighth tier of the Scottish game. They go under the dual nicknames of The Mighty and The Cabes, and play their games at the 1800 capacity Bellsdale Park.

Over the years they've won an array of local trophies, including the Ayrshire League, the West of Scotland Premier Division, the West of Scotland Cup and rather regal sounding Jackie Scarlett Cup. Indeed, so good have they been in the knockout trophies that they were dubbed the Cup Team of the Nineties in the area, with seven trophy wins and a whole lot more lengthy cup runs.
