Two weeks on and I'm still pretty peeved about that ignorant reply, here's why.
I'm well known to support Largs Thistle being in the pyramid. In a survey conducted by the SJFA, 99 of 158 junior sides of last season supported backed joining the pyramid. Some of those who didn't reply positively, such as Dunbar, joined the East seniors this season anyway!
Next month, we'll be playing St Roch's in the Scottish Junior Cup fifth round. As far back at 2013, St Roch's, then in the lower reaches of the juniors, signified an interest in the then to be launched Lowland League. As a club in one of the most deprived areas of Glasgow, they run homework clubs, christmas dinners for the homeless and support charity initiatives from Celtic - but, as they've not YET went senior, would you still agree, if in some context they were to play Ayr, they should be put "back in their box"?
Or is it the Lowland and Highland league sides come from "nicer bits of the country" I suspect? This may be a drum I bang on a lot, but not without merit I suspect.
That's the short version, though I could go on all day against ignorant nonsense and I've two 4,000 word each match programmes to finish for Monday and night shift. The pyramid IS coming, whether more reluctant sides like Talbot like it or not. I wonder what you'll be saying in a year or so...
@Loondave1 - I see you liked Honest_Man's reply, though your side scrapped by BSC Glasgow, who don't have a home ground in Glasgow, and won't have one any time soon, after souring their relationship with tennants Maryhill. Do THEY deserve to be in the Scottish Cup, would you say?
Yes I'm aware my writing is very stream of consciousness when I'm dealing with ignorance.
