Scotland games have always been well attended in Ayrshire and most of the big clubs have a Social club so the blazers wouldn't miss out on a freebie!

Forget about where and when it's held, the blazers being treated is the most important thing.

Would love to see a Scotland game at Kelty. The new facilities at the park are ready that's for sure... in my 40 years involved I don't think there has been an international junior game in Fife.... I'm sure it would be well supported especially if there are Fife/ East Region boys in the squad ... 


You're wanting the SJFA to hold Junior international matches at an East of Scotland ground?? They should try Saughton Enclosure or Warner Park, Eyemouth then!!
Kelty is no longer a Junior ground. No junior internationals!

The Scottish junior cup final is held at a senior ground every single year.

Venues for previous tournaments held in Scotland

1995: Petershill, Maryhill, Pollok

1999: Arthurlie, Maryhill, Pollok

2005: Arthurlie, Petershill, St.Anthonys

You get the idea. Disgraceful if they again hold it again in Glasgow.

Looks like it was a 1999 trial match against a Partick Thistle XI at Linlithgow, so just the 18 years.........

There has been a few trial/representative games but no actual International as far as I can see

24 - Glasgow

10 - Ayrshire (3 - Irvine; 2 - Ayr, Cumnock, Kilmarnock; 1 - Auchinleck)

  7 - West Lothian (4 - Linlithgow; 3 - Bo'ness)

  5 - Edinburgh

  3 - Dundee
  3 - Fife (3 - Glenrothes)
  3 - Lanarkshire (1 - Carluke, Motherwell, Shotts)
  2 - Dunbartonshire (1 - Cumbernauld, Kirkintilloch)
  2 - Renfrewshire (1 - Barrhead,  Renfrew)
  1 - Aberdeen
  1 - Stirlingshire (1 - Falkirk)

Apparently so, and due to stay that way as the GJFA are holding this in Glasgow again.  14/15 October, West Region games cancelled.

Aye, there's been a few trial matches by the looks of it, but the last proper "International" held in the East Region was 1993 according to Goggsy, and I've not seen anything to disprove that.

24 years, shocking.

That Saturday is R2 of the Big Scottish.

Glenafton ought to win through from the Preliminaries. With a favourable draw in R1 they could well be participating in R2.

So would none of their players get selected for the Quadrangular, weakening the national side and there potentially be the competing attraction of their Scottish Cup game distracting from the Internationals; or would the SJFA insist on call ups from Glenafton regardless. It would be interesting to see whether or not the SFA would recognize postponement of a Scottish Cup tie ""due to international call-ups" if they're 'only' for Junior international level. It would be unfair on Glenafton to make them fulfil the tie with their best players absent.

Seems a bit precipitate to cancel the whole card for what after all is a novelty tournament - I doubt anyone outside the top divisions will be selected after all. We were down to play away at Larkhall that day, and I'd rather have got that played...with all due respect I'd be surprised if either team would be missing players.

Even if some lower league grounds are bring used, I'd have thought it would have been better to cancel games on a case-by-case basis, as going by the last time it was held it's not a huge draw. Fans will show up from the teams providing players, but the non-Scotland games are usually empty. We hosted NI v IoM last time...few dozen there tops.

And blame the suits for it being held in Glasgow again. It's not like the clubs have been lobbying for it; it's hardly Euro 2020.
