    Signed for Bell today. Delighted to get the big man on board

    Felt from our perspective we showed you too much respect 1st half. Bonnyrigg started really well and after 20 minutes I was worried it may end up a cricket score in your favour. However, we managed to get ourselves into the game going into the last 20 mins before half time. 2nd half a felt we did really well especially after losing the third, showed a lot of desire to get back into the game. We kept plugging away and got our rewards and nearly nicked it in the end. Although in all honesty we didn't really do enough overall to win game. Was a good game for the neutral a suppose.

  7. New clubs in the East of Scotland

    We've had the SFP visit several times before we ever paid the SFA. The SFP fund all levels of football so the application to the SFA is immaterial. Depends what level of grant you are going for their are various tiers. Also, the reality currently is any business minded person in there right mind would question whether to throw money at facilities to comply for a licence when at this moment in time there is no guarantee of when/if you will ever be allowed to obtain the licence and obtain the financial benefits of doing so. At lot of the old superleague clubs ourselves included applied for eosl on the basis that moving towards licence could be done quickly which has proven not to be the case. We have tried to contact various people about this and been met with basically a wall of silence with nobody assisting in any way whatsoever.

    That’s not how it works at the moment to be fair no potential of grants from eosl unless you have paid your £2k the SFP are also saying the same. Cant get my head round why there is an embargo and no reason given to why it is in place. smoke and mirrors all the time whether it’s the sjfa or the sfa never a straight answer from anyone. Extremely frustrating at the moment.

    This is happening on our side. However, part of paying the fee then allows feedback and guidance from the licensing department, assistance and direction with grants etc. As they are not accepting the entry fees the above is not forthcoming. At the moment although you can look at the detail and do as much as you can the finance element for any assistance is null and void. I may be overly worrying however it is common knowledge to me that other clubs in the higher pyramid tiers aren’t as open to allowing clubs to climb the pyramid as was hoped. Hopefully all will be resolved very quickly

    As it stands the majority of clubs that have moved over to the eosl would be looking to achieve entry level licensing as quickly as possible. The big elephant in the room at the moment is that the embargo has not been lifted to allow clubs to apply. I am currently on holiday but am led to believe that the meeting on Monday didn’t clearly indicate any timescale for this to be lifted. This needs to be addressed urgently, and the barriers lifted to allow clubs to progress as initially hoped. Playing devils advocate I actually get the point raised by the pyramid news guy but obviously not in the way he has communicated it. Theres a glass ceiling at the moment and it needs lifted ASAP.

    Mmmm, The embargo on applications by new eos clubs for sfa entry licence has still not been lifted either which is rather concerning for clubs hoping to gain this ASAP. We were hoping applications would have been accepted after June meeting but there has been a complete silence on this even when contacting sfa
