    Cheers - means a lot. Still not in the league of Larry the Lamb

    It's all about the Rose

    Bo'ness have no attachment or call over Newtown Park - as old Freddie keeps saying it's the NPA who will run it. #Homeless

    More deflection

    You are repeating yourself - I know Newtown Park is not the property of Bo'ness Utd. You have confirmed what I alluded to that you are basically squatters looking for handouts from others whilst contributing nothing. It certainly is a fairly simple arrangement - NPA do all the work and Bo'ness Utd sit back and contribute nothing. Hardly a great deal for the majority of the Bo'ness people. A community hub surely is for all the community to benefit - not just Bo'ness Utd. Since 1972 - your local neighbours, have built a successful Social Club, installed new terracing, numerous ground improvements, built a 310 seater stand, installed and updated floodlights, gained membership of the SFA, won numerous trophies, league titles and 3 Scottish Cups. In the same time, you have shut a club, demolished a stand, won a couple of trophies, a few leagues and 2 Scottish Cups. The only noticeable recent improvement I can see is the new doocots installed for hospitality. In years gone bye you had great Junior men in Tiger Mitchell and Geordie Simpson who done loads - maybe you need to ask where has it all gone wrong?

    So in summing up you are looking to everyone except yourselves to fund this. For such (allegedly) well supported team you have had every opportunity over the years to develop or plan ahead. But the harsh reality the money has clearly been wasted.
  7. Bo'ness United 2017/18

    Well your NPA landlords are selling you short.
  8. Bo'ness United 2017/18

    There have been very little noticeable ground improvements - a new portacabin (which has seen better days). No covering for away supporters and terracing which is a tad dangerous. Realistically you are a long way from being in a position to move.

    He should feel right at home then.

    My opinion not Linlithgow's The EoS is part of the current pyramid - yet not every team can progress to the next stage - that's fundamentally flawed to start. Add in the fact in what's a spectator sport crowds are poor.
  12. Kelty Hearts & the EOS League

    Kelty are in the EoS where you can progress to 'LL and maybe SFL. Not every team in the EoS meet the required standards to progress. Coming 2nd would be bad enough but would be even worse if that team then isn't eligible to progress
  13. Kelty Hearts & the EOS League

    That's not my decision. Lesser teams = more potential for others (support/finance) We all know there are teams who merely survive each season. Teams who can't progress as don't meet ground criteria etc. Yet these same teams can halt ambitions of progressive clubs. Surely participation in a league should include a rule that teams must be eligible to progress.
  14. Kelty Hearts & the EOS League

    Totally agree - not nice to say but for Scottish football to progress a good cull is required. Leaner meaner

    Great 3 points - Ooooops
