  1. Pyramid 2019/2020

    It does stem from last summer but the ersjfa have already ignored that proposal by voting in 2 regional leagues at tier 6. Tier 6 should not be regionalised. Personally I would allow this to happen if the ersjfa went back to one league as the diagram shows for one season with full amalgamation after the one season agreed for season 20/21 in the east including the tayside clubs. For the record Dundonald Bluebell rejected the proposal because it was void of content not because we don’t want the juniors in. We are open to strategic discussion around amalgamation in the east.
  2. Junior football, what is the future?

    Agree to this
  3. Pyramid 2019/2020

    4 down from the top league is too much a personally would have 3 down. Both league winners promoted and a play off between both 2nd place clubs for the third promotion place. But it certainly for me is by far the best structure going forward.

    There must be something in the water in Kemlin haha
  5. Junior football, what is the future?

    Yes it needs to be SJFA free and run by an association that is an amalgamation of the current ersjfa and eosl for me under the sfa. Due to increased workload we may have to administer our own discipline in line with the current sfa procedures and there’s more fixtures to work out but am sure with the expertise in the current organisations coming together we can do this. Aw at last a solution hopefully
  6. Junior football, what is the future?

    Excellent and surely all associations and clubs would accept this
  7. Junior football, what is the future?

    This should be the goal for me, with decision on how we get there being the discussion at the meeting. An excellent structure for all.
  8. Junior football, what is the future?

    The sfa board will be frustrated that the PWG have still not reached agreement on the way forward. A joint approach from eosl and ersjfa to move boundary lines would be accepted if it then allowed progression and agreement of unified structure. A don’t understand why you continually want to alienate the tayside teams. There top sides were good Valuable members of the old super league for a lot of years. Regional at the top tier or two below the lowland league and local as you moved down the tiers at some point all under one organisation should be the goal. What a top product for marketing we would have then.
  9. Junior football, what is the future?

    That’s a very closed view prior to any discussion glad you won’t be at the table lol. For me we will only get anywhere if we forget about eosl and ersjfa and look at what’s the best scenario for non league football in the east of Scotland. An all encompassing pyramid including tayside teams should be the goal. How we run it and how we get there should be the discussion.
  10. Junior football, what is the future?

    It’s a meeting of both organisations in there current format so yes is the answer.
  11. Junior football, what is the future?

    There’s a meeting next week between the eosl and ersjfa management committees I believe. Requested by the eosl. A think this is a positive step and congratulate the eosl for getting everyone round the table at a level below the PWG. Be great if both organisations can work together and resolve the current complete mess and come up with a consolidated pyramid structure under one organisation.
  12. Pyramid 2019/2020

    My info is yesterday’s meeting didn’t even last an hour. The next PWG meet will be 13/14th April with the next SFA Board meeting 18th April. Which is too late for clubs without licence getting promoted to Lowland League. No got any further detail for meeting but hopefully that will be available soon. Personal feeling is one of deflation and annoyance.
  13. New clubs in the East of Scotland

    A hope your right in terms of the clubs getting licensed time will tell a suppose but the complete lack of communication from SFA at the moment for me means there’s things happening we aren’t privy to. I know senior league clubs don’t want clubs getting a licence for fear of us reducing there income and also the potential voting rights effect. I am aware this has been taken up with Mr Maxwell also. The floodlight fiasco was a deliberate attempt to stop clubs getting licensed as we all know. Unfortunately they haven’t counted on some clubs rising to that challenge and getting them in place pretty quickly. I wonder what next they will ask for. A may be cynical but history doesn’t show a fully transparent sfa. It is also my belief that no derogation will be given for lights but again hopefully I am wrong. However in the blue sky world of the pyramid as seen by some am happy to be proved wrong and for all the clubs to have there licence before the end of the month. Here’s hoping
  14. New clubs in the East of Scotland

    The amateur team folded a believe because they were struggling for numbers. A lot of there players and committee were leaving end of season anyway to join another amateur team who were starting up for next season again Strathmiglo who also folded earlier in season. No link as far as I am aware with Glenrothes Juniors and the strollers apart from a think the Glens new youth set up was taking a couple of older teams from strollers. Strollers announcing this new adult team strikes me as an attempt to keep there older teams.
  15. New clubs in the East of Scotland

    The amateur team folded around 6 weeks ago. It’s a new team that the strollers are trying to form to play in eosl.
