# Until 1915 clubs which finished equal on points played off for the 
  title. In 1910 Leith and Raith Rovers both finished with 33 points but
  decided not to play-off for the title and were declared joint Champions.
  In 1915 Cowdenbeath, St. Bernard's and Leith Athletic all finished on 
  37 points. There was a three way play-off in which Cowdenbeath beat Leith
  1-0 and St. Bernard's 3-1 while Leith beat St. Bernard's 2-1. Cowdenbeath
  were thus declared Champions.
