  1. EoS Conference A chat 2018-19

    Conference A Hill of Beath Hawthorn v. Coldstream A game that will have more than a passing interest for those teams not playing today. A Hill of Beath win keeps them in the hunt for the Conference Championship, but also secures theirs and Newtongrange Star's EoS Premier status for next year. Which can also be acheived by a draw. Coldstream have had the advantage of games in hand over their rivals. However, the 3 point deduction has seen them fall 10 points off 5th place.

    It was said following the March 11 pwg the next SFA board meeting isn't meant to be mid April. When that rolls around then you'll get your new licenses awarded. The question is whether or not the Lowland League will accept an EoS champion licensed after March 31st or vacancy applications from those licensed after March 31st. A way round this is simply to say those applications waiting to be accepted be the board will be backdated to when they were forwarded by the licensing committee.

    If Preston and Linlithgow both win on Saturday it rules both St Andrews and Blackburn out of Top 5 contention. All Preston would have to worry about is Heriot-Watt winning their last 3 games.

    Conference C Heriot-Watt University 1-2 Jeanfield Swifts Preston Athletic 0-0 Camelon Juniors Preston will probably be the happiest from tonight's results. Camelon had a goal flagged off for offside and a goal line clearance in the first half, but then had 2 sendings off in the second half. It could prove a precious point for Preston headining into their last 2 games of the season against 5th place rivals St Andrews and Blackburn.

    They might end up taking that to heart. 0-0 but a man's just been sent off with 15 mins to go.

    Conference C Heriot-Watt University v. Jeanfield Swifts Preston Athletic v. Camelon Juniors A couple of games under the lights tonight. Both home teams will be looking for relative upsets against top 4 opposition.

    Scaremongering years ago isn't the same as what's going on right now. Since December I've seen everyone be critical of the SFA. On the other hand the majority that moved to the EoS still say it's a better set up compared to the East Region.
  8. New clubs in the East of Scotland

    Possible dent in the Craigroyston and Leith Athletic merger talk that went around the other week. Craigroyston are looking for a looking for a manager to take the team next season.

    As long as whoever it is gets the better of SPFL42 this year I'll be happy.
  10. Lowland Trapdoorwatch 2018-19

    Yeah, just requires the HL Champions winning the SPFL playoff.
  11. Lowland Trapdoorwatch 2018-19

    The way I remember it @Burnie_man mentioned the change to Selkirk counting as the bottom club. Either through EoS sources or just chatter on the terraces. This then led to debate over the Lowland League being all about self preservation. Then @HibeeJibee said the SFA wouldn't allow a rule change this late in the season. There was never any public announcement from the Lowland League.
  12. Lowland Trapdoorwatch 2018-19

    The basics of this has been covered around the time. Team 15 would be relegated decided back in September, a special meeting arranged January/february to have Selkirk still count as bottom club, only the SFA stepped in saying it was too late in the season for a rule change. The idea that someone actually went to the sfa asking them to step in would be interesting.
  13. Mathematical Certainty for 2019-20

    The weather wiped out the majority of games this weekend. However, Musselburgh's first trip to England on league business secured their EoS Premier Division status for next season. I have also added Craigroyston, Edinburgh United and University of Stirling EoS to the EoS First Divison listings as I realised they would have the worst 6th placed status if they were ever to reach it. EoS Premier Division: Bonnyrigg Rose Athletic Broxburn Athletic Camelon Juniors Jeanfield Swifts Linlithgow Rose Musselburgh Athletic Penicuik Athletic EoS First Divison(s) or Conferences: Arniston Rangers Burntisland Shipyard Craigroyston Dunipace Edinburgh United Eyemouth United Hawick Royal Albert Inverkeithing Hillfield Swifts Oakley United Ormiston Tweedmouth Rangers Tynecastle University of Stirling EoS

    Conference A Tweedmouth Rangers 1-5 Musselburgh Athletic I didn't realise there was a game on today. With the win Musselburgh claim 2nd spot in the Conference, and are now the 2nd team in the Conference to secure their EoS Premier Division status for next season.
  15. Title Round Robin 'hood

    Lowland League tried to change the rules for relegation recently & the SFA told them no.
