West Region fixtures "to March"

Recommended Posts

Anyone who fails to do what there paid to do get sacked except for this nutter. It's an indictment of just how poorly run it is and the contempt shown by him is just unbelievable. Expect the fixtures to be out Monday wouldn't surprise me if there already done but he's holding onto them as f**k you I, ll decide when I release them.

To be fair, perhaps he is waiting for the outcome of this weekend's re-scheduled Scottish Junior Cup games to see which teams make it to round 4.

Had the games gone ahead as scheduled last week he would already have that knowledge and been able to publish fixtures which wouldn't need tweaking.

We'll see what arrives in the early part of next week, if not before.

Fair enough, but can anyone answer my original question about what action, if any, can be taken against a secretary who fails to abide by a democratically passed motion.?

I understand that, but don’t accept it.

The rules are very clear, it says no later than 30th November. Perhaps if lines of communication were clearer he could have said something similar to what you have, or if every other deadline had been adhered to then fine, but that hasn’t happened so far.

Only very marginally over half of them.

Surprised no-one mentions the Management Committee populated by his pals. They have the ability to change things but it's makeup never seems to change.
There is more than one man to blame imho.

That's assuming that they have the bravery to question his authority. But I'm sure it's still 'his' Region and they'll do as they're told.

See if he is waiting on that, why not come out and say?? A quick message on Twitter, the website etc updating folk on the reasons, he might not get half the shit he normally gets.

He probably did send a message, but the bottle hasn't washed ashore yet.

I get why people are upset but to be honest advance fixtures are not worth the paper they are written on at this time of the year with delayed/rescheduled Scottish Cup games, bad weather etc.

Embaressing! Reading on here, Most junior fans / teams seriously consider themselves superior to the lowland league and you can't even get a few weeks worth of fixtures. Sooner you move over the better. Amateur leagues are better organised.

In this day and age with the advent of social media giving information to your customer base is easy and quickly done.  Fixtures man is a pen and paper addict in the age of the keyboard.  A simple computer programme that takes account of all the variables can be bought for the money raised at a match at Newlandsfield.  I have been going to see the juniors from the days of Dennistoun Waverley and I would hate to see it's demise due to intransigence on the part of an out of touch hierarchy

"Refuses" or "is unable" to use it?

The latter is probably more likely,  but either way another person should be doing the job. With the current weather problems we are experiencing I wouldn't bet against some third round Scottish ties still being outstanding going into January. What good would a fixture list for league matches be then?

That's because the timing of the Junior Cup R2 & R3 is completely wrong. West region incompetence exacerbated by SJFA incompetence

ALL Scottish clubs should get together and table a motion to INSTRUCT the SJFA Management Committee to draw the first AND second round draws at the AGM of the Association.

This advance notice of fixtures would assist the 3 regions in preparation of fixtures.

Rounds 1, 2, 3 and 4 should be played at the end of August, September, October and November.

This would mean that the ties in the problem month of November would be HALVED and thereby reducing the impact that cancellations have on the fixture lists. December and January could be free from Scottish Ties and other rounds played as normal.

The management should look at the ties in Round 2 and pick out a tie that has a suitable venue where the 3rd round draw could be made probably around 5:30 – 6:00. Once the results are in. Again this advance notification would be of great benefit to the 3 regional secretaries in sorting out fixtures instead of having to wait until the week after the replays take place. The same should happen with the other rounds.
