  1. Junior football, what is the future?

    Well off topic and a valid point tbf, suppose we will have to wait 7 year to find out. I’m sure we will have a plan B and C however to protect us and the community club.
  2. Junior football, what is the future?

    Like most other Council run 3G pitches, theres a secure fund setup with money put aside from bookings per year that goes towards replacing the pitch when its at its end.
  3. Junior football, what is the future?

    Jim Leishman signing off money, behave. Couldn’t do the coal race because of Kelty Hearts nice try in smearing.
  4. Junior football, what is the future?

    £7million was for the community centre, extension to the school and a 3G pitch, tarmac surround and fence. All other costs on ground improvements, Social clubs, squad etc have come through hard work and investment from sponsors. Kelty like most other towns had no investment whatsoever up until the Community Centre and extension to the school was done. The 3G pitch wasn’t even meant to go on CP, it was planned for the trotting track behind the North End of the ground, after finding complications with the ground FC asked us to rip up our pitch and install the 3G, something we weren’t sure about at the time but after we got assurances the surface would be the best available we went for it, if we didn’t it wouldn’t have happened.
  5. The Duel for the Crown

    Will do although it is restricted to the Starting line up, goals and MOTM. I like to watch the match and not my phone for 90 mins updating corners, chances free kicks etc, kudos to the guys who do though 2 top sides going head to head, should be a cracker.
  6. Junior football, what is the future?

    West and North clubs can easily be slotted in at tier 6 and I’m sure the SJFA won’t have a problem achieving that if they so wished but the East is a totally different scenario entirely. Its very doubtful there will be anything in place within the next 6 months so that all clubs and associations have an agreement and clear plan presented to clubs on where they go and what the structure will be. For the SJFA to simply say they have a verbal agreement in place with an outgoing Chief Exec on all Junior clubs coming in at tier 6 is a very very bold statement to say the least and something that will neeed backed up quickly with a clear agreed structure for clubs in the East.
  7. Junior football, what is the future?

    Quite bizarre, there in lies a lot of chats and agreements on structuring that may or may not pass.
  8. Junior football, what is the future?

    Brilliant, wouldn’t say it throws the EOS in doubt at all. Lets hope it does go through and if it does it’s great work by TJ on behalf of his clubs. We all want to see a vibrant non league with clubs able to progress and prosper. Hopefully there’s a clear plan in place for all clubs starting next season so they know the lay of the land for their clubs in season 19/20.
  9. Junior football, what is the future?

    Doubt it, if this comes off then this will take a helluva time to get agreements and structures in place from all parties. Im sure TJ said he had an agreement in place with Stewart Reagan, what happened to that?
  10. Junior football, what is the future?

    Theres a “possible” “agreement in principle” recieved by “informal notification” with confirmation coming to the SJFA next week in writing or “verbally” from the acting SFA Chief Exec (who is leaving his post at the SFA on 5th May) that the Juniors will enter at tier 6 with a possible target for implementing commencing season 19/20. Until the SJFA have a clear plan in that it can be presented to its clubs with all the agreements in place between them SFA, pyramid working group, Lowland and EOS/SOS League then it’s not much to go on. For the sake of everyone involved they all need to get round the table as one to sort it out and present clubs with a clear integration plan and timeline, everyone working in different ways helps nobody. By committing to the pyramid and EOS for next season clubs know where they stand, the SJFA need the agreed plan sent to its clubs so they also have a plan to go on, verbal agreements and possibles aren’t enough at this stage.
  11. Junior football, what is the future?

    TJ has sent emails to clubs who are potentially leaving he has UNOFFICIAL (at this time) agreement from an SFA Member that Junior clubs can join in at tier 6 from next season. Although no one from the Non Pro Game Board, Pyramid Working Group, Lowland League, East Of Scotland or South Of Scotland know anything about this, they haven’t spoke to TJ for over a month. This causes massive implications in the pyramid system that would need agreements and big structure changes addressed by all groups. IF it comes to fruition then great, about time and hats off to TJ and co.
  12. Junior football, what is the future?

    Good point, you could argue the details and the facts on the pyramid weren’t passed onto us as clubs which is what happened. If we had done our research, knew Licencing wouldn’t be available to Junior clubs and the positives of the pyramid then things could have been different.
  13. Junior football, what is the future?

    How do we know the SFA didn’t approach the SJFA, I’m certain all non league club associations were asked to be part of the starting of a pyramid structure, SJFA refused to engage on the pyramid and Licencing and up until 6 weeks ago continued to do so. The alarm bells should have rung last year when Kelty left never mind 5 year ago when the organic begun, they have lost all credibility especially in the East.
  14. Junior football, what is the future?

    Should the powers that be in the Juniors not have got on board with Licencing when it came out or even the past few years? They have no one to blame bar themselves. I believe at their last meeting they were warning clubs away from getting licenced and the work needed to be done. Made them look rather silly when you see the criteria, research the facts and see the Licenced clubs table and who are currently Licenced.
