The Scottish Junior Football East Region South Division is a third-tier division of the East Region of the Scottish Junior Football Association.

The league came into existence in time for the 2006–07 season, replacing the older regional setup. It was expanded for the start of the 2013–14 season by absorbing the more southerly clubs from the dissolved East Region Central Division as part of league reconstruction in the East Region.[1]
