  1. Junior football, what is the future?

    To solve the LL issue would it be possible to have 3 feeders into LL. East region as it is with the ERJFA clubs South of tay added. West League which comprises of Strathclyde and South which would be current South league teams and all Ayrshire teams. Or is this a no go as the bigger Ayrshire and Strathclyde teams want in the same division. Within 10 years you would have a healthy LL and the top league in each region strong 2 promotion spots to LL

    I also hope that all those contract extensions you announced recently are on Minimum wage and paying tax and insurance.
  3. Junior football, what is the future?

    You've said you'd expect to play In LL if promoted which will take you a minimum of 2 years yet you acknowledge you are in no position to get floodlights which would be mandatory for that league. What are Lochees short term and long term goals as you are contradicting yourself. I'm sure if it was down to you it would be tier 6 as part of a pyramid in the same league as Linnlitghow.Boness etc.

    How will this affect Bonyrigg Rose? Probably the current favourites for promotion but don't have lights. Would they consider ground sharing with Newtongrange or Penicuik for a season so they can secure a licence. It's all very messy

    Last season it didn't it was broken all the way round
  6. Junior football, what is the future?

    I get what you are saying but how many clubs would be in this new Fife/Tayside league at Tier 6. No disrespect too some of the teams that would be in this league but there is only 2 possibly 3 that can win the league and as has been said earlier they are Tayside teams above the Tay and unless the boundary is moved would need to move to HL if they ever gain a licence and bar Lochee the others are a million miles from there ground meeting licence criteria. Broughtys ground didn't have a barrier round the pitch last season. It's all very messy and someone with a bit of knowledge of all tiers of Scottish Football needs to sort it out Asap for the good of all clubs.
  7. Junior football, what is the future?

    I understand you've got to look after your own club but are you suggesting the current Tayside and Fife clubs in the Superleague should join at Tier 6 on a par with next season's EOS Premier? A lot of teams got promoted to Super League through default with so many defectors. It can't be right that these clubs are on a par with teams who took a chance to join a more professional structure and fighting tooth and nail to finish top 5 and for most working towards a licence at a lot of cost.

    Why are the ERSJFA canvassing for clubs when the product is dead. From the Tay down junior football will be non existent soon. Tayside clubs are fighting tooth and nail to hang on so they don't have to join the Highland League set up.

  11. Junior football, what is the future?

    Great post. At the end of the day Beenz or whatever other names he uses are trying to look after there own club which isn't a bad thing but if 2/3 clubs are holding back a sensible pyramid structure because Tayside clubs don't want to be part of the HL it's insane. I feel for the club's in these areas who want in theory back to playing the top Fife and Lothians teams on a regular basis but unless the border was moved from say the Tay to Brechin it's not achievable. For what it's worth I think the line should be moved as none of the Dundee based teams seem to harbour a move to HL. The only downside is you could have a Dundee team travelling to the borders for a tier 7 league game. This is solved with a regional tier 7/8. All above basically gives you an old ERSJFA league but in a pyramid under SFA and EOSL which is surely much better. Can I ask anyone in Tayside that should they reach tier 5 They would be happier making trips to Glasgow and Annan etc other than Aberdeen and Inverness??

    Sorry not Kirrie . Glenrothes
  13. 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]
  14. 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?
