2016–17 West of Scotland Super League Premier Division

The SJFA West of Scotland Super League Premier Division (also known as the McBookie.com Superleague) is the highest division of the West Region of the Scottish Junior Football Association.

The division was created in 2002 with the amalgamation of the top leagues of the Central and Ayrshire districts. The current champions are Auchinleck Talbot who have won a record four consecutive titles from 2013–2016.

From the 2007–08 season onwards the champions of the league qualify for the first round of the Scottish Cup, the first being Pollok, along with the champions of the East Superleague, the North Superleague, and the Junior Cup winners.[1]

Two clubs are automatically relegated to the Super League First Division, and are replaced by the clubs placed first and second in that division. The club which finishes third bottom contests a two-legged play-off against the team which finishes third in the Super League First Division.
