  1. Got the Newton score right and in fairness almost all the winners correct
  2. As the page has been fairly quiet of late does anyone want to hazard a guess at the scores for this Saturday ? Are there any shocks on the cards , which of the local sides will make it to Round 3 and how will the South fixtures go ? Weekend Fixtures Soccer Shop Challenge Cup 2nd Round Dunipace v Mid Annandale Forth Wanderers v Threave Rovers Haddington Athletic v Abbey Vale Lochmaben v Kirkcaldy & Dysart Newton Stewart v Yoker Athletic St Cuthbert Wanderers v Tynecastle Upper Annandale v Berwick Rangers Vale of Leithen v Heston Rovers South of Scotland League Caledonian Braves v Stranraer SOS Creetown v Nithsdale Wanderers Lochar Thistle v Wigtown & Bladnoch
  3. Starts this weekend and they appear to have used a degree of common sense which is rare for them and not included areas where the case numbers are still relatively low
  4. Still a concern to everyone down here obviously however your vitally important opinion is duly noted
  5. 14 but the aim is for a 26 game season ! As mentioned the cases here compared to the Central belt are comparatively low and hopefully following guidelines they can get things up and running , starting Saturday.
  6. Strangely the petition mentions Junior football and no reference to the new West of Scotland , the South or the East ! A valid concern but surely all levels should be associated with this issue ?
  7. Used to be North and South qualifying and not only would it make sense again during the early rounds it would certainly help this year especially if everyone was involved
  8. The Boxing Day timing of Round 1 is a very clever ploy to dissuade teams from risking the potential costly trip to the Highlands on Christmas Day itself and the unenviable task of possibly trying to find hotel rooms for 20-30 players / staff ! Clearly the SFA realise this is a big ask of any non league clubs to guarantee the availability of all their players over the holiday period and are hoping this will be a big factor in the decisions these teams make !
  9. One of their Reserves works for me and he says they’ve made really good signings and he fully expects them to compete at the right end of League 2 this Season ! I still believe there’ll be limited opportunities for these young lads although I might be wrong and time will tell
  10. Possibly Tam but if I’m honest I can’t see them taking too many chances with the youngsters because if they have another poor season they could potentially end up risking Lowland League football and that’s a scenario I personally doubt they might ever return from ! Just my opinion but I’d reckon they’ll spend some of the Rangers cash to acquire a few proven players for this level in an attempt to bounce back straight away. I think most people realise that there are several very decent teams in LL that are certainly better than the perennial strugglers in League 2 and once the WOSFL adds a few more strong outfits it’ll be nearly impossible for them to the SPFL any time soon. The real shame is that this Pyramid currently stifles these forward thinking sides and I for one would love to see 2 promotion places available for those looking to progress and help revitalise Scottish Football which is long verdure
  11. They’ll be strong alright I’d suggest and as for Saints , who knows !
  12. He’s there too ...... take it from me ! Johnny Baxter too apparently until he leaves for pastures new later in the year. Anyone thinks Threave , Saints , Abbey Vale or anyone else will keep pace with that potential line up is deluded at best .......
  13. Dolly apparently , Caldo returning from Threave , Dean Agnew coming back and other rumours that guys returning from the Juniors You’ve heard wrong Tam
  14. Stranraer will win the League ! Already strong and great additions undoubtedly
  15. I’d totally agree ! What will your money bring you ? Win the South possibly , run into big West and East winners in the play offs or worse still splash the cash and still end up a mid table , mediocre side or worse still scrape around the bottom half going nowhere’s fast
