  1. It's not Premier Division Kennoway that's playing Drumchapel United, it's Kennoway Star Hearts Amateurs, who are near the bottom of the bottom Fife League, and lost their last 17 matches last season, shipping 113 goals. Should be an easy away win. Kennoway lost 2-1 away to Lothian & Edinburgh 3rd tier side Barca-Milton in the first round.
  2. Kelty, Stoneywood Parkvale Amateurs, Glasgow Island and West Kilbride all with byes to the last 64 after their opponents withdrew/folded. 4 standout ties in the round for me: Castlemilk Dynamo v Saint Mungo's Castlemilk Old Boys Club v Dailly East Kilbride YM v Arthurlie Amateurs Sandys v Bannockburn Aberdeen Lads Club (Aberdeenshire) -

  3. Yeah, I didn't mean Glasgow Harp were outside the Top 30 - they are inside it, but behind Drumchapel. a win by 1 goal playing at home would therefore be expected (albeit difficult). I suppose it could qualify as result of the round by virtue of Glasgow Harp being possibly the highest-ranked team to get knocked out.
  4. They've still not corrected any of the wrong scores I mentioned (I DMed them on Twitter, and they have read my messages). Last season, the 2nd round draw was made 3-4 days after the 1st round ties - so possibly the same this year. I wouldn't say Drumchapel United beating Glasgow Harp was a shock - the original Drumchapel United moved to the seniors, of course, and their Saturday Afternoon amateur team resigned from the Central Scottish early last season. The Saturday Morning team (the team that beat Glasgow Harp) started up just last season, and played in the 2nd Tier, but absolutely annihilated almost everyone they played - they have continued in the same vein this season, scoring 40 goals in their first 6 games. I'd rate them a Top 30 team (ahead of Glasgow Harp) - they are possibly the best team in the Saturday Morning amateur league at the moment.
  5. The 2nd round is all-in (I think this happened at the 3rd round in previous editions). The 256 teams will be from the West (133), East (66), North of Tay (36) and North (21). The 2 West of Scotland U21 teams made it comfortably through the first round, and another 2 were given byes (Cambuslang Rangers U21 and Thorn Athletic U21) - so there will be four U21 teams in Round 2.
  6. All today's scores, plus a few matches that were played on Thursday and Friday that were listed as Saturday on the SAFA website. http://scotscores.theroonba.com/clubrank/clubam0922.html Note: Dunoon 6-1 Mauchline United was the final score (not 7-0 as shown on the SAFA website).
  7. Loganlea definitely seems to have been 12-2 (and not 14-2). For tonight, they got the Pollok United v Lesmahagow score wrong (2-6 instead of 2-7), and missed out 2 matches, and also put Rosehill United 2-2 Garrowhill Thistle as a full-time (but the match was actually abandoned). Results for Friday's games here: http://scotscores.theroonba.com/clubrank/clubam0922.html
  8. Interesting that this year, there are 2 clubs from outside the adult amateur leagues taking part - Rutherglen Glencairn U21 and Saint Mungo's U21 from the West of Scotland Youth League. I didn't realise they were eligible to compete. Already, there are problems with getting correct scores - one of the first 2 matches (played on 27th August) saw Hearts of Beath take on Loganlea United in a bit of a mismatch. Loganlea won 12-2 (according to their own Twitter), but 14-2 according to the SAFA website, and 14-1 according to the Kingdom of Fife AFA website.
  9. Whitfield Tavern (Dundee Saturday Morning, Premier) have folded, so they've now been removed from the tables. Forfar West End Amateurs (Forfar Athletic Community last season) have also pulled out of the Midlands League. Middlefield Wasps (Aberdeenshire Div. 2 North) haven't played yet - I don't know if they have folded or not. Central Scottish: Fallin (Premier) and Cambusnethan Talbot and Garrowhill Thistle (Championship) have yet to play a match. Does anybody have any news about whether any or all of these teams have folded/are taking a year out? They are all still appearing in the CSAFL league tables.
  10. Note: It's now possible to click on team names in the amateur tables on my site, which will take you to a list of their matches back to the start of the 2021-22 season. Also, the "amateur results database" contains monthly results from all leagues back to July 2021. Clicking on August 2022 brings up all the latest scores from all the leagues. http://scotscores.theroonba.com/clubrank/clubam0822.html Don't think it's possible to get all the amateur results in one place anywhere else.
  11. That's what Genaro said - it's Crazy Feet who suggested Drumchapel Ams were joining (and had an U20 team in the WOSFL). Genaro is aware of the difference, and pointed out that it was Drumchapel United who were in the WOSFL, not Drumchapel Ams. Odd that Crazy Feet should then like your post blaming Genaro for not knowing the difference! I feel this explanation will be wasted.
  12. Midlands League is down one team - now just 13 teams (+11 in the Alliance (Reserve) League - down 1 from last season). Merpro of Montrose are the team that's absent this time (they are a former Montrose Welfare League team). Forfar Athletic Community have become Forfar West End Amateurs (this team seems to swap between being part of both these clubs - they were part of Forfar WE before 2021-22, then were part of Forfar Athletic last season, but are now part of Forfar WE again). They've withdrawn their team from the Reserve league as well for this season. The Dundee Saturday Morning League seems to be doing better - 34 teams for 2022/23. In fact, there's only 1 team from Dundee proper left in the Midlands League (Morgan Academy FP), with 2 from Broughty Ferry, 1 from Invergowrie in Perthshire, 1 from Newport in Fife and the rest from Angus. Dundee Saturday Morning has a few new or returning teams - Lochee Harp Amateurs, Claverhouse and Polepark. Also, Fairmuir Social has changed their name to East End Thistle - and a new club has come in - named Fairmuir Social Club (confusing!). Perthshire is reasonably healthy this year, with 21 clubs (10-11 setup). Bridgeton United, Vale of Atholl and Kinrossie Caledonian failed to complete last season, but they are all there again for this season (with Bridgeton being demoted to Division 2). Saint John's (one of the best sides in Perthshire) are back after a year out, while Abernethy return after what must be 20 years or more out. FC Romania is a new club from Blairgowrie. It's been a while since Blairgowrie had 3 amateur teams (with Blair Thistle not lasting long a few years ago, and Blairgowrie Amateurs folding a while back). Not sure how much of a local support FC Romania will get, though. A lot will be from families who've stayed on in Blair after the berry picking season.
  13. A lot of the top teams use this league to field their 2nd teams (5 of the 12 teams in the Top division are technically reserve teams, mainly of Caledonian League clubs).
  14. Fallin have released a statement saying they haven't officially folded (yet) but if they don't have something in place by the season's first game on 13th August, then it will indeed be curtains for them.
  15. Threave Development played in the Dumfries Sunday Amateurs last season, and finished quite close to the bottom of the table. That was the team I was referring to.
