  1. Junior football, what is the future?

    The club who wins promotion should be promoted as long as there are plans in place to upgrade the ground to spec in the next season. I agree its totally unreasonable to move the goalposts at this stage of the season.
  2. Junior football, what is the future?

    No? The EoS have been instrumental in getting the pyramid movement moving. It should be commended again that they are taking it even further.
  3. Junior football, what is the future?

    I disagree. If it works when a team is relegated from League 2 then I don't see the problem it working the other way. Its about ensuring teams are sustainable in the long term. If the regions further down are more sensible than the North and south divide that's good for me. If the HL aren't open to one in ten seasons allowing a promotion into their league (which I'm sure they'd be fine with) I'd be very surprised. Even if Tayside was included in the LL I can only see one club making it to that level so it wouldn't cause much of an issue.
  4. Junior football, what is the future?

    It should be the same set up that's my point. It's only if Lochee for example won the EoS Premier they'd be in position for promotion to either. There's currently no regional setup under the HL isnt there?
  5. Junior football, what is the future?

    Whack everyone in the lowland territory and worry about where Lochee might go later. As it currently stands they'd be the team who stood a chance at a shot at the LL or HL. IF they win the EoS Premier, then they go into the HL or LL. It wouldn't be a yearly event so I don't see the issue just now. The priority should be uniting the teams under the pyramid.

    Surely this is common sense. Tayside clubs included in the EoS. For me this is a small change with St Andrews and Jeanfield already in. Stop nit picking and unite thne east. A simple north/south under the Premier would reduce travel to most.
  7. Junior football, what is the future?

    I agree and it only took one season to rectify. It'll take a few more years to rebalance the LL too. So hopefully the West enter in at Tier Six and two down from LL starts. Then in five years you'll have a true reflection of top non league football in the LL.

    I hear JCs point about local football. Ironically this is the current EoS Premier next year as it stands. One of the top three will go up. Penicuik Bonnyrigg Broxburn Hill O Beath Boness Linlithgow Musselburgh Dundonald Jeanfield Newtongrange Tranent Camelon Dunbar Crossgates Preston Not complete yet with fifth place not decided and the best sixth place but this is pretty local!

    Fantastic collection of data this. Well done for organising.

    After scoring three and not winning my question is can the manager set up a defence? This is piss poor and Broxburn won't lose another game.
  11. Junior football, what is the future?

    This is all getting a bit ugly. I for one hope that the likes of Whitburn, Fauldhouse and Armadale get on board and all these teams playing each other again. What people miss is that a lot of the nostalgia for the juniors is pre Superleague when the Tayside clubs especially didn't feature and limited travel. Ironically it's the EoS that at the moment is going to deliver an old John Walker League as its premier competition next year. I think it'll be a bumper year for those in it given the distance apart of the clubs. It's a shame that some of the above won't also be in the mix. The sooner this all merges the better.

    I don't think there is
  13. Junior football, what is the future?

    As it stands a team moving back would take t wo seasons minimum to get to the Superleague to have then a chance at promotion so I'm not sure this plays true.

    It's a really tidy wee park. Cycled past it for a few months when living in Cannonmills. On a sat afternoon there'll be little issue parking around mcdonald Road. Last resort is tesco Cannonmills and walk along the bike path to the ground.

    I think you'll get parked easy on broughton Road or mcdonald Road. Then just walk along St Marks path and the parks on the roght hand side.
