  1. Junior football, what is the future?

    Anyway enough of the sideshow. Re Dundonald, they’ve at least done their due diligence and attended meetings of both Leagues, looked at their own circumstances and made the decision to stick where they are for now. I think they could address these issues whilst a member of the EoS (and indeed access better grant aid to help them), but they’ve at least they’ve made their decision after thoroughly investigating it. You can’t level any criticism for that. Re EoS applications, I understand there may have been a late application or two. At least we’ll get some form of clarity at some point tonight/tomorrow, and then those clubs can plan for next season, likewise the ERJFA. Re SJFA entry, I think they’re due to meet the WRJFA clubs tonight? They need to be coming out with a lot more information than they currently are at the moment, although part of the problem is that they have very little to go on apart from assumptions from TJ even though the PWG hasn’t even met, or set a date. The SJFA EGM is no closer to being confirmed either. The picture may be a little clearer after tonight.

    All about opinions as your manager said, he went looking for a penalty and ended up getting what he deserved. Unlucky.

    If you've been paying any attention to the debate, you'll understand the very valid reasons why clubs are leaving the Juniors and moving on to what they perceive as bigger and better things, There's over 200 pages of debate, try reading it. I could mention your antics in the dugout are more of an issue for the Juniors to address, but we don't want to go down that route. Tuesdays defeat and league double must have hurt you more than I thought.

    You're coming out with utter claptrap yet have the brass neck to call other people fools? jog on ya numpty

    The development of our new ground had zero to do with our membership of the SJFA or any other body. Good to see it gets under your skin though, the Juniors will be gone soon enough. EDIT: the SFA CEO opened our new facilities, none of the SJFA heirachy have darkened our door or even spoke to us about the new facilities since they were built, other than one guy from the East Region who "assessed" them. That's the SJFA for you.

    They can, do you think that's likely? IMO the chances are greater in the EoS. Moor Park is indeed a tidy ground, but tidy doesn't equate to it being close to Licencing standards, they've obviously taken advice on that part and decided it needs a bit of work. What cash will they receive next season from the SJFA that they will miss out on if they leave? I didn't say they would earn payments next season, what they can earn is the opportunity to enter the Scottish Cup the following season and its an easier route than winning Superleague or Junior Cup. As for not providing valid reasons, perhaps you should have been paying more attention. We have received zero grants from the SJFA towards our ground, you are a completely clueless Joonyur diehard

    Age? Perhaps you can post the relevant sections where it details their obligation to admit the SJFA into the Pyramid at all, let alone a specific entry level.

    Seriously? away and open a windae and smell the fresh air, jeezo
  10. Junior football, what is the future?

    It's a puzzling statement. I agree they need to upgrade Moor Park quite a bit & establish an U20 team (although that isn't a Licence requirement), but they could have done that next season whilst in the EoS and still have the chance to qualify for the Scottish Cup for 2019/20 by either winning the EoS or winning the trophy that gives access. Let's face it, they're not giving up lots of cash by leaving the SJFA. Looks like they've swallowed TJ's email.

    Quite clearly this person hasn't "looked at all options" if that's the conclusion they've came to.

    Is it any clearer whether LTHV have their Licence or not? this could all be a fuss which ends up with nothing if LTHV win.

    Even more of a dive than I had remembered and ref in a great position.
