  1. Lowland league attendances 2018/19

    Assuming that's non playing players and gate checkers, volunteers, attending.
  2. LL Relegation

    Teams completed the season, in those cases and Dunfermline finished bottom of a full league. Not as if they were 2nd bottom and relegated, as the Whitehill situation would be if we had all 16 teams we started with.
  3. Kelty Hearts lowland league quest

    Absolutely. No club wants to be bottom of the league. Behind every one of those "deadwood" clubs are people working tirelessly, without financial reward, to make their clubs the best they can be.
  4. LL Relegation

    Seems perfectly logical. It's what would happen in any league anywhere. If Dundee went into liquidation today, would StMirren be in the relegation position and Hamilton, the play offs?
  5. Club Licencing

    Maybe the phone box, round the corner, was busy.
  6. Pyramid 2019/2020

    Annan Athletic have that at the "away" end of the ground.
  7. Lowland league attendances 2018/19

    I took 6 season tickets at the lift, to be added, plus MACK THE KNIFE! Don't know if he's already been to the gate first.
  8. Linlithgow Rose CFC 2019-20

    The player I spoke to (at a Boys'Brigade fundraising night!) was top scorer for Dunipace last season, playing from midfield. Was being played in defence when I saw him earlier this season but is not currently at the club. Don't want to name names as it's unfair on players. He did miss a few games through injury and work so may fallen out of the picture. He had stepped up from the youth squad so probably been there a few seasons. Why would he want to sign for Bo'ness Juniors? At the end of the day, players just want to play football, wherever it is. Watched Dunipace yesterday, incidentally, as Shire had no game. Lost 3-1 to Dundonald but very unfortunate. Led 1-0 at half time and should have been 3 or 4. Dundonald were stronger after the break but Dunipace were never out of it, didn't get the better of the refereeing decisions either. Great to see all the progress off the park. Getting there bit by bit.
  9. Linlithgow Rose CFC 2019-20

    A couple of weeks back I was speaking to someone who is signing for the new Bo'ness Juniors team. Been with Dunipace the past couple of seasons.
  10. The Dalbeattie star Thread

    Missed at second half goal or two, coming out of there at half time.
  11. Berwick Rangers

    Shire were £12 in League Two and dropped it to £8 for the Lowland League. We were still the most expensive in the league with other teams charging £5/£6 but dropping it further would be a bit too drastic, revenue wise, and our supporters were happy enough to pay £4 less than the previous season.
  12. Where’d the welfare thread go?

    Always an enjoyable visit to Ferguson Park. Hopefully Whitehill can stay up, other than the circumstances where 15th would go down anyway (Cove going up and Berwick or Albion coming down). This time last year, there were only 13 teams in the EOS league and therefore, one relegation spot out of 16, with a possibility of a second one, seemed reasonable enough, given what was below. Selkirk started the season, so should be considered as 16th. It would be the same in other league. One team's demise shouldn't punish another team. Had the Selkirk situation not arisen, there would have been no talk of Welfare going down, other than the circumstances above. Of course, the EOS is in a much stronger position now and more promotion and relegation places should open up, but that's something for NEXT season. Any vote to keep Whitehill up should be a foregone conclusion as you can't move the goalposts during the season. You should know what you're playing for when the season kicks off.
  13. Where’d the welfare thread go?

    I'll let the young, near side linesman off the hook. He got on our bus at Bonnyrigg and we told him we wouldn't slag him!
  14. Where’d the welfare thread go?

    So long as she's not singing "relegation, relegation"!
  15. The East Stirlingshire Thread

    Think you would want to sign a level of player who could get you promoted and be able to keep you up, the following season. Is Bolo available at Montrose, mo83?
