Junior football, what is the future?

The SFA's RESPONSE to TJ's pyramid letter (which he announced he would be sending  after he met with junior clubs), is essential to verify what he is claiming. Let's see if  he will produce and circulate  it.  Otherwise this is nothing more than (verbal) smoke and mirrors.

So let me get this straight.

You are infering that the Secretary of the SJFA has sent out a deliberately misleading and untrue email to member  clubs?

That's some accusation.

With most organisations that would be some accusation, with the sjfa not so much.

Put it like this.

It's getting into dangerous territory

Im aware of TJ doing a couple of underhand things in relation to clubs planning to leave so it’s not exactly defamation of character to suggest the man’s clueless.

Seems a fairly good and understandable statement to me.

 

"As a club, the East of Scotland League doesn’t give us anything we don’t have other than a season long fixture list, a fixture list that has still been left with clubs playing twice and three times a week and the two title contenders facing each other in head to head fixtures.":unsure2:

Progression through the pyramid requires SFA Licensing and to achieve entry at the base level whilst not a lot for some clubs, would entail a decent amount of financial investment that we just can’t afford.

Aye right enough, meanwhile we will keep playing at a  park that hasnt any cover for supporters

Statement that makes that as a key point but conveniently forgets the reason for the amount of games Lothian/tynecastle are playing is due to the problems with their pitch. If it wasn’t for that then there would have been no issues. Kelty/lthv matches were postponed due to lthv in Scottish cup and weather.  Disappointed one of them wasn’t a mid week in the first half of the season but it is what it is. Better than finding out on Saturday night who the next weeks opponent is!

Here's Kelty's original fixture list:

So basically the home game against LTHV was rescheduled because of their Scottish Cup involvement, and the away game in January was no doubt called off due to the weather. Everyone knew the EoS/SoS play-off dates so it's hardly the league or Kelty's fault that LTHV are having to play catch up...

But good to see Carnoustie are rattled enough that they need to make that statement...

Heard it yesterday along with 6 witnesses from a leading committee man attached to a team who will be leaving to join the EOS.

When asked why the club were leaving his reply was "money"

At least the guy was honest unlike some of the patronising shite you hear from the bullshitters on here.

You can pick nits at the statement but the gist of it is fair for a club that wants to stay Junior, especially as they are one of those clubs affected by the North/South boundary.

Then you see what they've decided to retweet and you can guess what they really think about things:

Yeah, imagine clubs wanting access to more money! The b*****ds!

Imagine wanting extra income to improve facilities! The b*****ds!

Imagine wanting extra income to improve youth teams! The b*****ds!

Popped back up last summer after they'd got their licence:

The one game I have attended at Blairmount - in 2011 - had 20 people there. Small clubs have obtained their licence.
