  1. EOS Grounds for Optimism

    I've just driven by Olivebank and it looks like Musselburgh have made further improvement's to the ground with improving the fencing. I understand they were quoted something daft (£120k+) for putting floodlights in. Hopefully the council are able to help them out a bit Civil Service and Coldstream now have submitted plans for installing floodlights. I could be putting 2+2 together the wrong way but both Girvan and Burntisland have had meetings with the SFP about facilities in the last 12 months too. Other than floodlights I can't think what other facilities they would be meeting about
  2. Club Licencing

    My point is that delaying the licencing decisions until May denies the team an opportunity to make other arrangements. If Bonnyrigg had known this in Feb/March (I'm almost certain that they didn't) they would have had time to look at alternatives
  3. Club Licencing

    I think they must've been strung along as the Bonnyrigg committee were still optimistic of getting the licence last Saturday. It they'd known it was no lights = no licence I'm sure a contingency arrangement with Penicuik or Easthouses could have been drawn up. It's not like the lowland league could complain about clubs moving games about as it happens already with BSC or Vale of Leithen (not getting at either club)
  4. Bonnyrigg Rose 2018-19

    Dalkeith have floodlights, Bonnyrigg will too in a couple of months, Arniston will if they ever manage to persuade the local NIMBYs that a new AstroTurf isn't going to see them attracting crowds in the 1000's anytime soon That just leaves Whitehill who are currently the highest ranked team of the lot
  5. Club Licencing

    Sky sports news even has a banner going across the screen about the decision to not award Bonnyrigg a licence. How often has EoS news made it on there?!
  6. Club Licencing

    I'm sure there is a bit in the licencing manual that says clubs are given 6-7 weeks to correct variances. The £2k fee is a one of and is held until the licence is eventually granted meaning it's a process rather than a cast iron decision. I'm really disappointed for all the players and committee having put so much hard work in. I was looking forward to trips to Dalbeattie and Gretna and resuming the recent rivalry with Kelty.
  7. 2019/20 League Cup

    European places won't be confirmed until the 25th of May so maybe the draw will be the beginning of June. I think Falkirk should be south and Stenhousemuir north?
  8. Pyramid 2019/2020

    The SFA issue new guidelines for licencing mid season each year so nothing sinister about it just that floodlights are a pretty major investment.
  9. Bonnyrigg Rose 2018-19

    What a comeback yesterday and the scenes when Turner turned in the winner were amazing! Hopefully the licence can get sorted out so we know what's happening for next season. I wonder what the SFA's stance is on "over exuberance" at this level... [emoji16]
  10. New clubs in the East of Scotland

    Peebles said at the time they secured funding for the fence that this was a requirement to stay in the EoS. I think there will definitely be pressure on the public park teams to get their own houses in order
  11. Admission prices list

    I couldn't see any one taking money at Peebles and was surprised there was no bucket collection or anything?
  12. Pyramid 2019/2020

    Looking at the North/south split in the league and challenge cups is a reasonable argument why not. Hearts in a North group despite being 50 miles from the english borders. Stenhousemuir and East Stirling being split North South. Dumbarton in a North group
  13. Kelty Hearts lowland league quest

    I've got a lot of respect for Kelty for how they've developed the club but the amount of comings and goings seem disorganised. I hope that Bonnyrigg got a decent fee for Wilson as his contract was running down and I think he wanted to sign for a fire club. Otherwise it's a strange move from the boy leaving a club he was doing well at and ending up at a poorer team a few weeks later
  14. Kelty Hearts lowland league quest

    Kyle Wilson away to Dundonald now which seems bizarre.
  15. East Copa del Rey 2018-19

    The ref withdrew entirely so a guy was called over from the clubhouse and ran past the enclosure waving his flag and geeing up the fans!
