  1. Junior football, what is the future?

    What is does is make it clear that no agreement over summer = no SJFA in pyramid for 2019-20. Looks like a season notice which is fair. East remains the thorny problem.
  2. Junior football, what is the future?

    Dunno surely the clubs moving to the East of Scotland League will want to apply so why stop them, disnae make sense
  3. Junior football, what is the future?

    If the thorny wee issue of how to deal with the east is sorted to everyones satisfaction then great stuff, Im no sure that will be easy though.
  4. Junior football, what is the future?

    Mibbee its me but has anything really changed. SFA refer Johnstone's letter to the Pyramid working group for consideration and discussion and in the meantime they are not going to look at licence applications at the June board meeting although not sure what that is going to achieve. Long way to go before the Juniors get access.

    Gents For information. Would have liked the response to be more robust however the information I have is that we are heading in the direction that will see us join the Pyramid – subject to an EGM – at a level no worse off than the EOS/SOS Regards Tom Johnston Scottish Junior FA Subject: Pyramid Group All, Further to the above, there has been a considerable amount of conjecture since last Thursday’s Scottish FA Board meeting re this matter and, accordingly, I thought it would be helpful to clarify exactly what the Board agreed. The Board of the Scottish FA discussed the matters that have been considered at the two Pyramid working groups with the most recent one having been chaired by myself. They also considered certain specific concerns in this context that were raised with them by one of their members. Finally they considered two requests for Scottish FA membership applications both of which were accepted and have now been referred to the licensing administration to progress in the normal course. Given the ongoing uncertainty around finding a pyramid solution to bring the Juniors into the fold and the number of junior members that appear to be leaving without knowing what the pyramid solution is, it was agreed unanimously by the Scottish FA Board that it would not take any more membership applications until such time as this matter is resolved. This ensures that all clubs are able to make informed decisions in the full knowledge of what the future landscape looks like; something that they are unable to do at present. The Scottish FA President will be chairing this and will be reconvening the pyramid working group in early course to take this forward. It is his and the Board of the Scottish FA’s wish that this can be resolved over the Summer allowing clubs to know what the situation is prior to the start of next season (noting that if any structural changes are agreed these would not come in until season 19-20). If matters are resolved in this timescale it will only be one Board meeting (June) where the Board are not considering applications for membership which should not cause any issues for clubs given the length of time it then takes to work through the process to gain full membership. Alan, will be in touch in early course to set up a meeting. Kind regards Andrew McKinlay Interim Chief Executive Scottish Football Association

    Dont be too harsh on yerself son, you'll find the truth one day [emoji1]
  8. Junior football, what is the future?

    Spot on bud.
  9. Junior football, what is the future?

    Youve read the same email as I have bud and came to a different conclusion. I reckon Johnstone asked for Junior clubs to be able to apply for a licence and that was what was denied, not clubs in the pyramid
  10. Junior football, what is the future?

    A wee bit of digging yesterday and the day has uncovered the email that Johnstone has been sending round. Either the SFA board have some explaining to do or Johnstone is playing fast and loose with what actually was talked about. Naebody at the Lowland League is aware of anything so you must think the EOS haven't a scooby either I’ve only had informal notification as yet. Andrew McKinlay the Interim CEO is out today so it will be Monday before I catch up with him. However my source of information was at the meeting so it is “kosher” Once I have received confirmation in writing or verbally from Andrew I will put out a formal notification to clubs. To confirm: The Board of the Scottish FA have agreed in principle to the Juniors entering the Pyramid at Tier 6 with possible target for implementation commencing season 18/19. There will also be a moratorium on applications for Scottish FA membership and Club Licensing whilst discussions are ongoing re Pyramid integration. Hope this helps. If you need anything further please let me know Regards Tom Johnston Scottish Junior FA
