SCOTLAND: Vale of Leven FC (1888-1929, 1939-) / Vale of Leven Old Church Boys (1929-1939)

Millburn Park, Alexandria (Vale of Leven Football & Athletic Club, formerly Vale of Leven Old Church Boys)

Scotland, county: Dunbartonshire

17 VII 2017 / Vale of Leven FC - Thorn Athletic FC 3-2 / Pre-season friendly

Note: Vale of Leven FC, formed in 1872, moved from North Street Park to Millburn Park in 1888; the club were one of the founding members of the Scottish Football League in 1890, but were reduced to a non-league side in 1926 and ceased all activities due to financial difficulties three years later. A new club, Vale of Leven Church Boys - commonly known as Vale of Leven OCOBA - took over the ground before it changed names back to the original Vale of Leven FC in 1939, joining the Scottish Junior Football Association, under the aegis of which it has played ever since.
