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.
