  1. WoSFL Pyramid Deadline - SJFA or Club led?

    Moving away from what he can't do because of constraints placed upon him, who is responsible for attracting sponsorship into the SJFA? Does that sit with the management committee?
  2. West premier & championship season ticket cost

    Pollok charging more for membership than supporters would pay at gate dates back 5/10 years or so (somewhere inbetween). First price was £80 (iirc) which was £20 on top of the previous £60 (iirc). It was essentally a donation to club funds which a member agreed to make as opposed to the standard 'pay up front and pay less' model adopted by most clubs. 150 or so members paying £20 a head each would pay for a player over the season. The club also now runs a 1908 Club (as do others) as well which allows supporters with some disposable income to set up a standing order to boost the football budget. https://pollokfc.com/pollok1908club/
  3. Edusport Academy

    And the club therefore fails to grasp that any publicity is better than no publicity.
  4. West premier & championship season ticket cost

    Pollok membership number has always in my experience been in 3 figures but it was limited to 200 members. The season ticket and membership were merged to increase uptake of the latter, afaik.
  5. West Region summer transfer thread 2018

    Danny Boyle to Lok
  6. scottish football archive

    The Glasgow Herald is freely available online (though a PITA to navigate). https://news.google.com/newspapers?nid=GGgVawPscysC&dat=19800918&printsec=frontpage&hl=en
  7. Internet overuse problem

    Yep, 10 years ago they'd have been flicking though the Sport or something.
  8. Junior football, what is the future?

    The footprints of the Highland and Lowland Leagues have been established. You can't have feeders to them going outwith that. For argument's stake Lochee Utd win EoS then as noted above, have nowhere to go as HFL may also have a candidate club from its own feeder to replace its Club 18 (Fort William). Clubs NoT go into Highland, SoT go into LL. Do we need to make it more complicated than that? England clearly does things a little differently and for a while had overlapping tiers below the Conference before the introduction on Conf N and S but is everything they do worth mimicking?
  9. Junior football, what is the future?

    And for a club like Tayport, they have always used the Fife and Tayside market so there'll likely be guys in the Dundee area happy to sign perhaps for St Andrews etc for that very challenge. So short-sighted of Tayport IMO as they will not be able to shift their ground over the boundary to stay with the Dundee sides long-term.
  10. England v Colombia

    Bit premature, no?
  11. WoSFL Pyramid Deadline - SJFA or Club led?

    I do see that POV but I also think the potential loss of historic rivals will keep clubs together. There is no way IMO that the straggler East / Fife sides will remain out the pyramid for long.
  12. WoSFL Pyramid Deadline - SJFA or Club led?

    Doesn't mean it won't happen - it will be the domino effect. If we go, Arthurlie will go, if they go, Neilston will go etc...
  13. WoSFL Pyramid Deadline - SJFA or Club led?

    I don't think there will be much until the realisation sets in following the Junior Cup draw that there are now no credible winners from the old East and Fife regions, to add to the North which has been in that situation for half a century. The last 8 of the junior Cup this year is highly likely to be dominated by WoS clubs plus a couple potentially from the Dundee area. As a national concern, the grade is dead.
  14. Ayrshire Cup Finals 2004 to 2015

    Tommy, are you after all the cup finals, Sectional, NAC, SAC, And Ayrshire Weekly press.. ? Here's the early AWPC ones... 04-05 AWPC: Kilbirnie 0-5 Talbot 05-06 AWPC: Meadow 2-1 Kilwinning 06-07 AWPC: Meadow 7-0 Dalry
  15. The Albion Rovers Thread

    I'd go for the former just on the grounds that you can't just become amateur if you're a pro. You can only reinstate to amateur once a career so it is not something undetaken lightly. Sean Burns as an example - signed for QP from Airdrie aged 19 or so, has just signed for Brechin extremely likely as a Pro. If he reinstated amateur at 19, that's it. Never again. Anyway, I've derailed this topic enough!
