  1. Junior football, what is the future?

    Sorry not Kirrie . Glenrothes
  2. Junior football, what is the future?

    So by this theory Thornton.Whitburn.Tayport and Kirriemuir would be placed in the new 16 team EOS/LL league??[emoji50]
  3. Just seen this thread. Superb. I spent every Sunday in the 80s as a youngster doing something similar. Wrote all teams down on paper and tore them up and put them in a cup. Drew them out and worked to your format. If both had scored the same in a separate cup to pick the winner. Could of saved a lot of time and checked who scored most goals that weekend to get the winner to save me spending time but loved it.

    Hand on heart do you honestly believe the ERSJFA current Super league clubs will be on a par next season with the top 5 of Conferences A/B/C. ? If you do then tell me what league would an East Lowland League side be relegated too?
  5. Pyramid 2019/2020

    The minutes state formation of Tier 6 in Tayside region and West . It does not for one minute suggest the Juniors enter at Tier 6. To me it points too Ambitious Tayside league clubs can join at Tier 6 which will either be under the Highland League or enter EOS league if the boundary is moved.

    We know it's a transition season this year and all clubs will take a hit but next year there should be at least 10 of last year's Super League in new EOS top league under a professional structure so should work out ok

    Hals.Surely your crowds can't be down 40% The average attendance for Dundonald games is 143 going by another thread. That would mean around 230-240 in Super League

    Seemingly the SJFA think they will have a combined Superleague with 10 West and 6 East teams in place for the start of 2019/20. Whether they think they should enter at Tier 5 or 6 i dont know. it all seems very messy. Say an East team were to be relegated what league do they fall into? for me the structure is straight forward and not difficult. Lowland League tier 5, EOS and WOS at tier 6 , eventually all clubs in Tiers 5/6 must be licenced say by 2020/21 Tiers 7/8 and below could still be run by SJFA for clubs who dont want licenced . It would be better if it was under one body but if SJFA insist they have to be involved they still can be at a much lower level, I get the feeling the plans in place are to suit TJ and 3/4 of the big west clubs. Cant see the benefit of Lochee or any other Tayside team for that matter having to travel to South Ayrshire for a tier 6 league game.

    if its do do with HMRC and National Minimum Wage looks like the captain of the ship is willing too take down most of his passengers with him,
  10. Junior football, what is the future?

    So you are now threatening to ban someone from Lochee home games because he has the audacity to have a different opinion from yours, no wonder teams want to leave the juniors with people like you involved.
  11. Junior football, what is the future?

    Please tell me which of the 13 clubs who have applied EOS league are moving for the cash?. Have Lochee ever tried to engage with a local boys club and create a pathway for local youngsters ? No they have a history of cherry picking ex seniors and the best juniors which is fine and delivers a decent on field product which i dont imagine comes cheap,
  12. Junior football, what is the future?

    they may possibly well be and even if relegated could come up to the super duper league next season, you cant have clubs from Tayside travelliing to South Ayrshire for a tier 6 league game.
  13. Junior football, what is the future?

    Forfar to Ayrshire isnt feasible for a tier 6 league game.
  14. Junior football, what is the future?

    What baffles me is and nothing really to do with this paticular discussion but junior clubs cant play under lights midweek in the winter to possibly catch up on fixtures for reasons i dont know yet Linlithgow were allowed to have 2.30pm kick offs through the winter under lights and are also kicking off at 7.30 v Lochore next week when other games are 6.45. would love someone in the know to explain that one.
  15. Junior football, what is the future?

    what would be wrong with top junior sides being in the Lowland League for years? they are currently bogged down in Leagues where they cant progress anyway. And in a few years they will be playing each other regularly anyway albeit in a different structure, Fife and Lothians , EOS Cup , WOS cup ,Ayrshire Cup?? , there are also numerous cups in the non league senior set up so your statement doesnt make any sense.
