  1. I thought you guys were going to change your name to Ayr Whitletts Victoria for this season - has that plan been abandoned?
  2. Now that the structure of the remaining East Juniors has been agreed for next season, does anyone know how many league games are planned for each division? 2x each other team? 3x? The 8-team Premier North might even manage 4x.
  3. That sounds an excellent idea to make the best of what they are left with. Much too imaginative, I fear, though. I suspect making sure that all the first round of fixtures are completed before the split will be too difficult, although it shouldn't be if they use the league cup as a buffer between the two halves of the season.
  4. Did either of the Potts or Tweedie cups run this season just finished (2018-19)?
  5. Your best bet is probably Traveline Scotland , I think.
  6. Cheers! Arbroath Vics and Forfar Albion are playing next week (6 Apr), so they are surely in the last group with Brechin. That leaves: Coupar Angus, Scone, Lochee Harp, Dundee Violet, Luncarty and Dundee NE in the last two groups, in some configuration or other.
  7. Thanks very much, that's very helpful indeed. Do you know the make-up of the other groups (in either cup)?
  8. Does anyone know whether the format of the East Region League Cups (aka the Thorntons East Region League Cup and the Consolation League Cup) has been announced anywhere? All 36 clubs left in the East Region after the mass defection were divided into twelve sections of three clubs at the beginning of the season: teams played the other teams in the section twice, giving four matches for each team. This stage has recently finished, with the 12 group winners continuing to the next round, and the 24 other teams being punted into the Consolation Cup. So far so good, but now things get a bit murkier. I thought I had seen that the League Cup was going into a second group stage, but can't find any details on the East Region website (4 groups of 3 teams? Teams playing each other once or twice?) What is the makeup of the groups? Presumably then the four winners of this stage would go into semi-finals? I haven't found anything about the Consolation Cup, except that a couple of fixtures have been announced for 6 April (Arbroath Vics - Forfar Albion and Bathgate-Whitburn). Are these 24 teams playing in another group stage as well? If so, how many groups (4 x 6 teams, 8 x 3 teams?) and who is in them? How many subsequent rounds are there (quarters? straight to semis?) Or is the consolation cup a knockout with 8 ties and 8 byes? Whatever it is, there are going to be a lot of games to cram into May and June to get these cups finished!
  9. Very happy to see that 54 people saw Vale of Leithen beat Edusport 5-4! :-)
  10. Great stuff, I've been making similar lists. I found quite a few errors in my list which this has helped me fix, and some small discrepancies with your lists. 1. In your league list, there seem to be two EK goals and two Spartans goals missing. EK have 21 and Spartans 11 so far, but I can only find 19 and 9 respectively. for EK, I've got Craig Reid on 2 (not in your list) for Spartans, I've got Jason Stevens on 4 (not 2) 2. In your overall list, apart from the above there seem a couple missing from the EoS Qualifying Cup games at the weekend: for Edinburgh Uni, L Murray v Stirling Uni for Gala FR, D Baxter and K Mitchell v Tranent
  11. Last five matches I can find as follows. So one out of five, and soundly beaten in all the others. 7 Oct 2017, EoS League: Ormiston 1-4 Preston 1 Aug 2017, EoS Qualifying League: Preston 5-1 Ormiston 21 Nov 2015, South Region Cup: Preston 1-2 Ormiston 15 Oct 2011, ESs Div One: Ormiston 0-5 Preston 30 Aug 2011, EoS Div One: Preston 4-0 Ormiston
  12. It won't be the same as this season if the non-Scottish teams are coming in at round 2. In 2016-17 it was pretty byzantine, with teams entered according to their final position in the leagues the previous season (which led to some oddities like Queen's Park entering before Elgin, even though they were by then a division above) Anyway, in 2016-17 it was: Round 1: 28 teams (positions 3-10 from League Two, positions 1-4 from Highland League, positions 1-4 from Lowland League and the 12 'colts') Round 2: 24 teams (14 winners from round 1, positions 1-2 from League Two, positions 3-10 from League One) Round 3: 24 teams (12 winners from round 2, positions 1-2 from League One, positions 1-10 from Championship) Round 4: 16 teams (12 winners from round 3, 2 from Wales, 2 from Northern Ireland) If the non-Scottish teams are coming in earlier and there are two extra teams, then it looks to me as if there might be one round fewer this time, perhaps: Round 1: 48 teams (28 League teams, 4 Highland, 4 Lowland, 12 'colts') Round 2: 32 teams (24 winners, 2 remaining League teams, 6 non-Scottish teams) Round 3: 16 teams (16 winners) But if that was the case then surely they would have asked another couple of Lowland/Highland teams to avoid byes in the first round. Too obvious?
  13. That would be a great incentive, if the SFA approve it.
  14. Anyone (Hibee Jibee, perhaps) know anything about the SCFA Alternate Cup which is being played for this season? First round is this weekend, Upper Annandale v Lochar Thistle, followed by the second round on 3 September. I'm assuming that it's for the clubs not involved in the big Scottish Cup, like the Alex Jack Cup in the EoS, but I'm not aware of it having been played for in the recent past. I can understand the reasoning but it's not like the SoS is short of Cups!
