Notes

Formed in 1919.
Balfour Silver was the Band's Name a few Years before they merged with Buckhaven Town to become Buckhaven and Methil. The change of Name was due to new
Sponsorship after the Closure of Wellesley Colliery (Source: Former Wellesley Player still active with Buckhaven and Methil in 2018).
