  1. Sorry but I'm totally lost here and hope I can be kept up to date, 'what did the Club do to football pyramid in the country' ? I genuinely don't know as I've been more interested in the WOSFL
  2. Yip correct HibeeJibbee Any first team player can play for their U20s development to a maximum of 6 games but only in league matches Any player, even in the first team if he was born in 2001 or less can play for the U20s, (01 player must have been registered with the club on or before 5th of February 2021). The U20s development team are still allowed to use players from youth clubs for a maximum of 12 times. This needs to be agreed by the youth club manager. officially the current ages now elidable for the development teams at players born on 2004, 2003, 2002 and the current ruling of 2001 players). As far as I'm aware regarding subs, A development team can have 7 subs but can only use 5 of the 7 during a match
  3. ffs that's not long There musta been something of a major disagreement or the Board not really happy with the way the management are implementing things, or new players not good enough etc... Suppose it could be number of reasons although I'm quite surprised at only two months though
  4. Sorry not too clued up in what's going on. How long was Hardie in the job ?
  5. I think they must have it in place to reach the playoff, so the winners of the WOSFL, SOSFL and the EOSFL must have the SFA license in place to reach the playoff, is this correct ? was there an official cut off date the season just finished before lockdown
  6. See that its announced that there will be 88 development teams this coming season 21/22 split between East and West Regions and the leagues will be announced this week coming. Exciting times for these clubs and lads getting back to competitive football Scottish Lowlands Development Football League (@OfficialSLDFL) / Twitter
  7. I've been looking over most of the posts that are involving the Colts teams but not sure if they will be included in the cups that the rest of the Lowland league teams participate in. South Challenge cup for example and any others, any one any ideas if they will be included for season 21/22
  8. Fourth division members should be at least invited as quite a few of them would want to participate, St peters and Harthill for example and get a feeling with a good draw they could go on for a couple of rounds
  9. I take it that means the Blantyre Soccer Academy cannot apply to have their U20s team join the U20s development league this coming season ?
  10. I was informed that Blantyre Soccer club have applied to join the WOSFL as they have stated they are adding a U20 team into the development league as well Anyone got any info on this
  11. I'm looking forward to Sundays 2nd leg, I actually think it will be a exciting, cracker of a game. All the best to both teams
  12. Some teams are not releasing players because they players have not handed in the strips or training gear. Some bigger clubs can afford it but a lot of clubs in the WOSFL cant, so they require the gear back. So the club is in their right to retain the player until he hands the match and training kits back
  13. Yeah all teams can enter an U20s, they just need to make sure they fall in line with the criteria and the requirements on the application form. For any new club its a big ask for them to start a senior team and a development team in their first year so good on them and understand if a team just concentrate on their first team to get everything up and running and then add a U20 team the following year. From what we know, St Peters, Harthill, Harmony Row, Kilsyth Athletic, Finnart, Glenvale, Campbeltown Pupils, Westerton, Kilbirnie Thistle and Broomhill Sports Club are all joining as associate members but out of these and any others who join, who will start a development team in their first year. I heard that Blantyre Soccer Academy applied to join the pyramid and with that Blantyre Soccer Academy and Blantyre Vics are both adding a U20s development team as I know there is a Blantyre SC U20 team set up. Unsure if the Blantyre Soccer Academy U20 will go ahead as I believe the First team have bene put back a year. Just waiting to hear official confirmation New Senior Teams who are adding a development team for season 21/22 St Peters Harthill Kilbirnie Thistle Blantyre Soccer Academy Unsure Glenvale Glenvale U20s Teams already in the pyramid system who intend to add a development team in the west season 21/22 are: Auchinleck Talbot Port Glasgow East Kilbride Thistle Ashfield Gartcairn Blantyre Vics Blantyre Victoria U20s Not made statements about adding a U20 team for season 21/22 Harmony Row Kilsyth Athletic Finnart Campbeltown Pupils Westerton Broomhill Sports Club That looks about 10 teams joining the West region development league for season 21/22 There is already 68 teams in the development league, so at least 10 from the West and I've heard that there's about the same number joining the East U20 Development section. So your talking about possibly 88 teams or more in the development league which is just phenomenal. I've not kept up to date with the teams who are adding a U20 team in the East so as said above there are about 8 to 10 teams but not to sure of which teams have announce they are joining and teams where people think they are joining. Who else am I missing that intend to add a new development team for season 21/22, anyone know ?
  14. Allan Glens, that sounds good but heard that's used by Glasgow Harp and another East Dunbartonshire amateur team, St Mungos. Anyone have any info on that ?
  15. I think that would be a good idea but who do they choose to pop into the leagues when said leagues are null and void
  16. I never asked if anyone was buying into it, think quite a lot are against the idea. But I'm saying its being put to the clubs, which I'm sure its supposed to do. If the clubs say no and the LL committee override that then that is wrong. a) A one year pilot will prove nothing. - I think regarding point a, i believe the lowland league find it easier to put them in this coming season as it wont affect the league, i.e no SOSFL,WOSFL or EOSFL teams can come up, so its bringing the Colts team in with a view of making money for it for one season. (I will say, what's happening to the bottom teams this season in the LL, are they being relegated or not, that's what I'm unsure of ?) b) It will be a foothold to establish the principle of inclusion of reserves. - Yip agree but then simply change the constitution, (with a vote from all clubs) to make sure after this coming season that no team can buy their way in and that they start at the bottom of the league in their area whether that's tier 9, tier 10 or tier 11 c) The clubs hoping to enter the league aren't doing it for the betterment of anyone but themselves. Including other reasons is window dressing. have to admit that does make me laugh, every single team thinks of themselves, every last one. But sure LL teams playing against the best of the talented youths in Scottish Football, how can those players not learn on both sides. d) It's Rangers and Celtic and I fucking hate them. - that's your prerogative and thousands are with you on that, moi, i don't give a flying feck and don't care who wins the premier I'm too busy enjoying football at this level
  17. Being chairman of the Lowland league and MD of BSC are two complete different entities. He has a job to do as chairman of the Lowland league and is trying. As far as I'm aware the clubs have to vote to see if they will let the Colts teams in or not for One Season only, brining in money for the association. So the association clubs are the ones who will decide, I don't get all the moaning. If the clubs say no then the colts don't get in, if the clubs say yes then they get in and LL receives money, badly needed money. Its not rocket science and it isn't going to make a difference right now because no WOSFL, SOSFL or ESOFL team are going to the LL anyway as all leagues ended up null and void this season.
  18. The EOSFL want to wait till the June AGM so no friendlies allowed for the first teams or their own U20s development team. So the East side U20s teams have to fall in line. A bit stupid as all lads at U20s have had a full season of no football and they need it, not only to get back playing but for their own wellbeing
  19. No sorry, disagree 100%, you are knowledgeable in lot of things but I find you very 'tunnel visionish' in a few things, especially 'junior' orientated, which sometimes i don't thing some of your views are constructively dealt with, (please, its not an attack, it's just my view of certain matters you quote on). I believe, truly believe I'm coming at this objectively and as a guy who has played in the SJC in many years and always watched SJC games and shown an interest in the SJC, i feel the games as an example of what i have listed are far superiors than in the last 10 years of the SJC and only time will tell. If everyone pulls together and the right marketing is done to gain interest then there a potential for it to gain big interested throughout the central belt of Scotland and below.
  20. sorry if its quoted on here as i have missed it but is the Kelty game being streamed live ?
  21. Obviously that's your viewpoint and i get it but a couple of things, the type of potential games in the SCC, potential examples; East Kilbride v Auchinleck Talbot, Linlithgow Rose V Pollok, Berwick Rangers v Camelon, Bonnyrigg Rose V Clydebank, These types of ties are far superior and interesting in most games that have been in the SJC in the past 10 year. How does it change, it about the correct marketing, online promotion, its easy to adapt and change the way to get the interest change, its the online work I have done and there are many people who can do this for Lowland Association and all clubs below as I have worked at, (nope I'm not interested in the job). I laugh at these newspaper stuff of coaches saying the juniors is the place to be, the SJC is brill and i miss it. Everyone, especially the younger generation coming through will look back at it but in 10, 20 years, none will give a flying F... about it and us who become older will think back with fond memories. The junior cup is really finished, its was fantastic trophy but I can see another new non league Scottish cup but right now this coming season its a NO as there's enough to be getting on with to make sure 21/22 is a successful season for all and I'm sure the non league Scottish cup can then be readdressed. If there is a national non league cup with the Highland league and all below there pyramid section then I definitely think the first 3 rounds should and will be regionalized, maybe north and south and then all in if it does get of the ground.
  22. Hey John S I disagree about the change comment, I believe it can, well the potential is there, the south challenge cup can become bigger in terms of reputation. I don't think its was portrayed that way due to the advertising of it in the past and the amount of teams participating in it and most of the teams being located in the East. Lets put it this way with the WOSFL joining last year, the SCC already became a harder cup to win than the recent years of the Scottish Junior cup and the SCC can grab hold of the excitement of big days at home and away with teams traveling to and from West and East and South. Now you have possibly about 20 teams joining the Two associations this coming season, so again its looking like it will be bigger from, I'm sure, 147 to approx. 167 teams. but it has to be done right, good advertising from the LL and all the clubs to stimulate the interest. Could there be a Non league challenge cup, yeah sure it can and I'd definitely think it would be great but suppose its baby steps to make sure this pyramid becomes stronger and stable.
  23. lol, well it worked for Glasgow Prestwick I'm not in the know but think that's why the name change
  24. its only graphical so they have the name Glasgow in the name. the same idea as Glasgow prestwick International Airport, They added the name Glasgow 15 odd years ago even though they are 30 miles from Glasgow but wanted people to think its local to the graphical area of Glasgow
  25. That's to be expected as there are many people in clubs from the WOSFL who still think junior orientated, personally not for me but I understand why they think that way, moving from junior level to the senior level. Right now, some clubs will be keeping their junior status to play in the junior cup but as the years unfold, more younger, football people will join the committees and think that the junior stuff is last on the agenda as the other cups in the senior leagues are far more important. I can see a lot of first teams not being used for the junior cup but quite a few development sides playing in the tournament Out of teams in the Lowland and Highland League I take it all are licensed and can play in the main Scottish cup and for Lowland teams you have the SCC which incorporates 147 teams minus the new teams joining 21/22 which could be more than 20 teams taking a southern cup competition of over 167 teams and is by far stronger than the previous Scottish junior cup with the quality of teams participating and then you have expected domestic cups, West cup, East cup so its understandable that over the years to come the junior cup is going to be the last thing on peoples mind and quite rightly so. I do not understand any team looking towards the Scottish junior cup when its easy to understand that the SCC will have higher quality teams in it and that's just a Southern cup with about 167 teams and it still retails great away days
