  1. Kilwinning Rangers 18/19

    How many games are left at Abbey Park?
  2. What does the title mean by the way?
  3. What was the situation with the sale of the old Countess Park? All monies go to the club or to the Council? Hope all goes well, like heading down to Dunbar.
  4. Junior football, what is the future?

    Just had a look on the West Region fixtures page and that is like night and day from before.Just out of interest what is it that's causing postponements on 16th March. My guess would be the Scottish?
  5. Junior football, what is the future?

    Are the WRJFA capable of delivering a fixture list? Is that a requirement for the pyramid?
  6. The clue was indeed in the post. It has been the reality after the move that has convinced me. Not through listening to anybody, even those like Burnieman who had a point and called it right.
  7. Was very wary going into the EoS from the juniors, sad to a large extent to see the demise of the Junior game over here but the rreality of it has completely changed mymind. EoS admin is fantastic, from what I can gather interaction with the clubs is also excellent andclubs are treated with respect. Very happy with the move and I wouldn't want us to look back. There may be a case for regionalising the league below the Premier to enable the Fife and Tayside teams to move as smoothly as possible into the EoS set up, nothing really to be gained from maintaining a separate Junior set up though, clubs at the top end are used to Lothian to Tayside journey and vice versa, West have a ready formed set up to convert to a WoSL, which should enter at a similar level to the EoS, worth trying to replicate the organisation of the EoS though, persisting with the same organisation just to protect a few blazers and to maintain their office at Hampden and a sponsorship deal they signed for the Scottish would hold clubs back. This idea of insisting on games not getting called off until the Saturday is ludicrous as well. As I say I wouldn't look back in our position, there are small issues but I'd rather the EoS committee were dealing with it in the future.
  8. Pyramid 2019/2020

    I feel for the people over there that are entirely open for it and getting dragged down by these guys but largely agree.
  9. Musselburgh Athletic F.C 2018/19

    Probably better if Geordie finds other options than the pair of us mate!
  10. Pyramid 2019/2020

    Even with the benefit of the East Junior 'diehards' (and I would've counted myself among them) testing the waters for them and coming out enthralled with life in the EoS they're fighting it! That said they're moving in under the West Junior guys who control it at the moment going in frantically defending their empire as opposed to the fresh start we got in the East I suppose.
  11. Musselburgh Athletic F.C 2018/19

    Not that young that I forgot mention that Matty's goal looks even better on the video than it did at the game, beauty.
  12. Pyramid 2019/2020

    Heh heh, bit harsh (but maybe not entirely untrue). Hold my hands up and say I wasn't entirely convinced myself before this season. Organisation of the EoS has been brilliant and I've bought into it wholesale, once the leagues settle next season and beyond I can't see it getting anything but better. West Junior internal power games amongst the jaikits (not really suits in the Juniors) will still take a wee bit of sorting.
  13. Pyramid 2019/2020

    That's where I would have it too. Would think it's better to ensure any clubs vying for a SPFL league place are ready for the step up from LL1.
  14. Musselburgh Athletic F.C 2018/19

    Yup the Twitter video makes it clear, not really where I was expecting the foul to be and I'd be following the ball rather than looking out wide. As I say 50 year old etc.! Great result for Geordie and Ryan and great news tonight that they're going to stick around as far as I'm concerned.
  15. Pyramid 2019/2020

    Think that the LL whether it be 1 or 2 divisions would be the logical point for compulsory licencing to be necessary. East of Scotland is a fantastic set up where it needn't be compulsory, in all likelihood there are teams within the EoS that won't be promoted out of it in my lifetime, that's the whole point of the pyramid and 'finding your level', new requirement for getting a licence smoothes the way for clubs moving into the SPFL if reality matches ambition, hate to see a successful LL team unable to take a promotion place because of a lack of licence.
