  1. The East Stirlingshire Thread

    Pretty sure it’s Kenny Moyes (David Moyes brother) who bankrolls them. He’s listed as director of football on their website and was a director in the LTD company until he was banned from holding a directorship for tax dodging. https://economia.icaew.com/news/october-2017/football-tours-operator-banned-over-tax-avoidance
  2. Preseasonwatch 2019-20

    Jeanfield will enjoy the day out in Aberfeldy to play Elgin. Fantastic facility there and if you get the weather Kelty for last season then your onto a winner.
  3. New set up for next season

    Has the EoS been told that whitehill are safe in the LL if Bonnyrigg don’t get a license?
  4. West Premiership Prizemoney

    £3k for winning west super league was last I heard. £1.5k for winners of the east super league.
  5. Hello from Sunny Berwick Upon Tweed

    That’s reserved for supporters of East Stirlingshire
  6. Cowdenbeath 2018-2019

    I must have missed when Cowdenbeath became sustainable on their six figure losses each season with over 50k prize money given to them. And that’s just to stand still. Not a club looking to get out a league with a pittance off prize money on offer compared to club 42 above receiving £43k each season for being terrible.
  7. Fauldhouse United 2018/19

    You still pretending like it’s some kind of unique utopia that is unlike any other football game around? It’s 22 men kicking a ball around a pitch in front of the same fans wether it’s ‘junior’ or as most would call ‘non league’
  8. Bonnyrigg Rose 2018-19

    Looks like Bonnyrigg themselves stated they wouldn’t be used after 9.30pm. They’ll get a shock when it’s a cup tie that goes to extra time and penalties and they are on for an additional hour.
  9. Relegation Play-offs; Cove v. Berwick

    Probably the only bit of the game that seen the light of day! Never any highlights put online either by Cove, Cowdenbeath or SPFL.
  10. Club Licencing

    As much of an advantage as the 12k plus head start Linlithgow had on East Junior clubs for years due to their license which the rest were unable to get? Linlithgow received grant funding for their disabled viewing area, don’t let the posters fool you like they get no help from anywhere in terms of funding. That’s a brazen lie.
  11. Kelty Hearts lowland league quest

    Hearing talk that Nathan Austin Is signing for Kelty. Would light up the lowland league if true, was a fantastic player at East Fife and Falkirk.
  12. Whitehill welfare 2019/20

    Or a club is relegated from the spfl without the lowland champions joining the spfl. I read it that Selkirk is filled by application regardless. Whitehill are replaced by Berwick as the “bottom” club are relegated to make space for the spfl club.
  13. Bonnyrigg Rose 2018-19

    There’s already a maximum pitch gradient in club licensing. At Bronze level there is a maximum, entry level is best practice.
  14. The East Kilbride FC Thread

    If the SPFL clubs want the HFL and LL to adopt their registration rules to prevent released players being able to sign out with the transfer window in non league, then IMO they should be willing to change the playoff to automatic relegation for the worst team in the professional leagues. The fact that that the team relegated with a £40k head start on the teams around them hasn’t bounced straight back up shows you the league below is stronger than you think. When Cowdenbeath are relegated (it’s inevitable that it will happen in the next 5-10 years imo) Cowden Cowboy will change his tune when they are stuck in the Lowland League as they need to win a playoff with HFL and then club 42.
  15. New clubs in the East of Scotland

    16 clubs is the preferred number for the SFA, I believe they have tried to make the HFL shrink to that figure but were met with opposition from them. If all all clubs had floodlights then 18 teams would be fine but while they do not it’s a non starter as the HFL play mid week games right through when necessary.
