Paisley & District Amateur Football Association (Pdafa)
The Paisley & District Amateur Football Association (Pdafa) is a football league competition for amateur clubs in the Paisley area of Scotland.
The association was founded in 1920 and is affiliated to the Scottish Amateur Football Association. It is composed of three divisions, with a total of 28 teams.
The Pdafa was founded in 1920 by a group of local football enthusiasts. The inaugural season consisted of just four teams, but the league quickly grew in popularity and now has over 20 teams.
The Pdafa has been home to some of the best amateur footballers in Scotland over the years. Former Scotland internationals such as Jimmy Johnstone, Danny McGrain, and Kenny Dalglish all played in the Pdafa before moving on to professional football.
The current season of the Pdafa is the 2023-2024 season. The top division is currently being led by Johnstone Burgh, with Ferguslie Park in second place and Gleniffer Thistle in third.
The Pdafa cup competition is also currently underway. The final is scheduled to be played on May 28, 2024, at St Mirren Park.
