  1. Junior football, what is the future?

    Difficult to predict with any certainty what the outcome will be. But even if the East Juniors remain intact and enter the pyramid at Tier 6, it isn't going to be a very good league set up for the remaining West Lothian and some Fife clubs. Maybe the SFA, if they are indeed backing what you say, are assuming that some clubs will follow a natural and logical course by joining the EoS of their own accord.
  2. Junior football, what is the future?

    SJFA is a national assoc though, not regional.
  3. No, the definition of a halfwit is a foolish or stupid person.
  4. It's sad to see that a once good club is run by halfwits. Do you need a licence to join the League of Gentlemen? For local people...
  5. Junior football, what is the future?

    Exactly. And maybe the winners of West, East, South and North regional cups could enter the semi finals of the 'Scottish Junior Cup' which is played at the end of the season once promotion / relegation etc is resolved.
  6. Junior football, what is the future?

    Great... is it too much to ask for a definite, unequivocal statement from the SFA confirming that the west region juniors will be in at Tier 6 of the pyramid starting next season? Say within the next week or so?
  7. Junior football, what is the future?

    But it wouldn't be a rival league - this one would be in the pyramid and affiliated to the SFA. Same rules as EoS with no strings attached. Clubs can either take it or leave it.
  8. Junior football, what is the future?

    Pyramid entry was supposedly a 'done deal' but now it looks like the SFA are stepping back and letting others get on with it, which is fair enough. Is there anything definitive, in writing, anywhere, which confirms that progress has been made and that pyramid entry can be delivered by SJFA for next season? It really doesn't need a majority of clubs to make a WoS league happen. It just requires another 9 to step up to the plate with Clydebank and get the thing done. It looks like this is not going to get sorted by others, the clubs must do it for themselves. The EoS assoc would no doubt extend their offer from last season and assist with rules / constitution and any questions that might crop up - it's all boiler-plate stuff substituting the word 'East' with 'West'. It needs 10 clubs with a common purpose and commitment and 4 competent people in the whole of the West of Scotland to take up the office bearer positions. Copy the website using exactly the same format as EoS with a contact email address at the top and an application form to fill out. SOMEBODY PLEASE DO IT. Or we'll all be here in another years time, still fannying about and wondering what is going on behind the scenes.
  9. New clubs in the East of Scotland

    ...is there a pun in there relating to floodlights...?
  10. Junior football, what is the future?

    Tier 6 in a WoS Premier also feeding into the LL? Basically exactly as they are but in the pyramid, if the league assoc can get their house in order...
  11. Junior football, what is the future?

    Looks good, and workable. Although you might need to run 2 mixed conferences again for the south section to avoid new teams coming across automatically above existing EoS ones.
  12. Junior football, what is the future?

    That is the scenario we have at the moment eg Gretna to Galashiels. Long term I think the majority of clubs in the LL would consist of central belt clubs - so here would be little travel between the regions.
  13. Junior football, what is the future?

    Another way to look at it is 3 feeders: Highland / Mid / Lowland. Fed by the 6six SFA regions: North = HL Central + East = ML West + S.West + S.East = LL Sorted.
  14. Junior football, what is the future?

    Bonnyton are within LL catchment, Tayside clubs are not. Dunipace joined EoS from West region and Clydebank were also accepted on a deferred entry - so overlaps do happen within the LL catchment. There seems to be no objection from EoS to the West juniors coming in at T6, feeding in the LL, it just looks unlikely at the moment due to apparent lack of progress. And they would have no issues with Tayside and North region based juniors entering at T6 feeding into the highland league because it is outwith their remit. The line needs to be drawn somewhere - what if Montrose Roselea decided they wanted back in and eventually made it to the Lowland League?
  15. Junior football, what is the future?

    I think the previous poster was suggesting that the remaining Fife and West Lothian Junior clubs should join the EoS for next season. There is no need for any change to the dividing line between Lowland and Highland leagues.
