East of Scotland v West of Scotland

This series of matches began in 1871 and was continued at varying intervals, as can be seen from the table. In the early matches players were permitted to play more than one game against an opponent. No matches were played between the 1905 and 1923 meetings. Links have been shown to those years where additional information is available. Further details will be added if they become available.
