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.
It's supposed to be a 42 club solution but it does nothing for the clubs in the third and second division either financially, voting-wise or structurally. We feel clubs from the lower two divisions have been pushed aside. We will be, at best, financially no better off.
Queen of the South fans speak of their disappointment in the club. It's as the board voted, against the wishes of the majority of fans, for Rangers to enter the football league in Division 1. They were one of only 5 clubs out of the 30 in the football league to vote that way.
The other 25 voted for the newly reformed Rangers to enter the league in division 3.
Billy Hewitson, Queen of the South Chairman, spoke to our reporter Matthew Taylor about why the Board voted against the wishes of the majority of their fans.
The club was one of only 5 that voted for Rangers to enter the football league in the highest division, despite most of their fans urging them to vote for the newly formed Ibrox team to come into the league on the lowest rung, division 3.
