  1. Junior football, what is the future?

    Who knows with ERJFA joining tier 6 clubs might return to that region (Fife and Perthshire clubs) and West Lothian clubs may apply to the EOS.I understand that 2 clubs have applied to the ERJFA in recent weeks I do not know their present status. I had heard that one ERJFA applicant was effectively a pub team. There's no long term future in the ERJFA as it currently stands. Tayside will continue to have the lions share of clubs in the Superleague, that in itself will put pressure on remaining West Lothian clubs. Whitburn and Fauldhouse must be feeling the pain financially going to Tayside six times, add in Tayport and the three eastern Fife clubs and it's a strain with either buses and/or travel expenses. North End will probably go up next season to replace one of the two that will drop, will Pumpherston want to follow them with only two Lothians sides in the league? The ERJFA must know this, so they go on the offensive with the tier 6 claim. So we return back to where we began, with the EoS's understanding that a West and Tayside league had been agreed and would enter the Pyramid next season, with the West Lothian and Fife clubs encouraged to join the EoS. That is the sort of thinking that should be going on, the ERJFA should be talking to the EoS, an orderly merger is entirely sensible and I'm sure the EoS would be open to it, but with Tayside clubs involved in the show, they probably wont. It's therefore sadly left as a war of attrition, and I can only see it going one way. I suspect more than one WL ERJFA club will jump to EoS next season, and the EoS should just go out and sell it to the others.

    I suspect there will be a few requests for clarification from the SFA. Their own Licence criteria alludes to "reasonable timescales" for such changes. Some clubs are being audited this week and next week, not much time to throw a set of floodlights up!

    What an environment for West Junior clubs to be joining eh!

    Tayside run the ERJFA and know the consequences of more clubs leaving, its probably not a matter of if, but how many. It's in their interests to play fast and loose with the facts. EoS should go for the jugular and start speaking to West Lothian and Fife clubs, then it wont matter what level the ERJFA enter at.

    The boundary should not be shifted if we're to have anything approaching a balanced Pyramid. Lochee and co need to go north.

    That was a bit silly, Chamberlain moment.

    How thick are you? if was a draft email intended for the addressee's only, and some of those addressee's pointed out it was inaccurate, and it never saw the light of day until you posted it on here, much to the annoyance of most concerned. The ERJFA must really be worried about losing more members as we roll towards March if they are making claims of tier 6.
  10. Junior football, what is the future?

    What SFA announcement? feel free to point me towards SFA confirmation as opposed to an internal draft email from weeks ago which was discredited and never saw the light of day, and a wee graphic made-up by someone ripping the pish or playing hard and fast with the facts.

    I think you're the one being taken for a fool here. Someone is clearly "at it" but as ever you're happy to lap it up. Enjoy it while it lasts......

    I think a certain President would call that FAKE NEWS

    You need to submit an application to the SFA Board for membership, sign a membership declaration to say you'll join the Pyramid, and pay your £2k. If accepted, you effectively become an associate member pending being awarded a Licence upon which you become a full member.

    Oh I'm sure they can, just like they could have insisted Linlithgow Rose and Banks O'Dee join the Pyramid after moving the goalposts before being Licenced. They didn't.
