It sat below region-wide division and alongside an 'Ayrshire' geographical equivalent (with one division), representing the Ayrshire League and Central League which merged to form the West Region.

In 2018, the lower leagues in the West Region were reorganised, no longer being split geographically, with the result that the Central First and Second Divisions and the Ayrshire Division merged and were separated into two tiers (League One and League Two).
