ITV Border has learnt that three out of the four clubs in the South of Scotland voted against plans to form a single league in Scotland.
Annan Athletic, Stranraer FC and Berwick Rangers voted against the proposals at a meeting today.
Only Queen of the South voted in favour from this region
The plans were passed by 23 votes to six amongst the lower league clubs. But because it needed a 75 percent majority, the proposals were actually carried by a single vote.
The chairman of the Queen of the South has given his backing to the new structure for football in Scotland.
Billy Hewitson said that the plans would spread television rights money more equally amongst all the clubs in the new Scottish Football League.
Queens were promoted to the old Scottish First Division last season.
Annan Athletic are one of just six clubs who voted against plans to create a single league in Scotland, doing away with the old two tier system.
The chairman of Annan, Henry McClelland has gone on record saying that lower league clubs have been asked to make a dangerous "leap of faith".
He added that he was in favour of reform but not in the way it is currently being proposed.
