  1. Club Licencing

    Well if the LL can ignore their rules and run with 17 teams then they can ignore the rule that says you have to be an SFA member to join - meaning they can promote Bonnyrigg to replace WW and run with 16 instead.
  2. Pyramid 2019/2020

    I've seen worse but if you go to all that trouble of creating a fantasy pyramid you might as well integrate the SoS with the West.
  3. West Premiership Prizemoney

    Fair play to the SJFA twitter person
  4. Club Licencing

    Why would they have something to say - I don' think LTHV had the criteria changed on them like Bonnyrigg.
  5. Club Licencing

    Update from Dalkeith, not as close as we thought they were to being licensed: http://www.dalkeiththistle.co.uk/news/season-201920-the-jags-going-forward-2428622.html
  6. New set up for next season

    It's actually 40 Saturdays for the Premier Division as the title race must be finished by 2nd May in case there's play-offs with the SOS winner. Though if you play three midweeks in August/September and another in October it's back to 44. It'll be 9/16 clubs with floodlights even before Bonnyrigg install theirs, so no doubt one or two midweek rounds will be scheduled under lights and other games can be rescheduled to midweek easier than before. Will be tight but I have faith!
  7. Edusport Academy

    Plus the one at the wheelchair space? Times two to make the required 100. Maybe the other one will have blue seats...
  8. EOS Grounds for Optimism

    CSS: https://citydev-portal.edinburgh.gov.uk/idoxpa-web/applicationDetails.do?activeTab=documents&keyVal=POO389EWIT200 Coldstream: https://eplanning.scotborders.gov.uk/online-applications/caseDetails.do?caseType=Application&keyVal=POLOUCNTG3400 Both meet entry lux levels, presumably getting approval won't be as much of a problem as Bonnyrigg with the houses further away.
  9. New set up for next season

    The LL would relegate the bottom club to remain at 16, and the EOS would probably relegated the 4th bottom club to remain at 16 as well (or deny promotion to the winners of the play-off between the runners-up in each conference).
  10. Junior football, what is the future?

    How about if there was a Tayside/North Junior merger to form a feeder below the HL at tier 6?
  11. Pyramid 2019/2020

    Not sure why you'd think you'd get dog's abuse for a sensible fact-based post that isn't shouting "mon the jooyurs". Agree with the last part in that there isn't enough pressure in the west - plenty of factors in play though: It will depend on whether Auchinleck continue winning the league and cups and then they might decide like Kelty and Bonnyrigg that they need to progress higher. It may take clubs with ambitions further down (Clydebank, Cumnock or others close to a licence) to create the pressure from below like Dalkeith and Blackburn did in the east. Or Auchinleck as well once they get floodlights and the only thing holding them back is the lack of a senior league. We know in the next two seasons that there is very likely to be two LL clubs replaced by EOS ones, perhaps even both the Roses which will increase its attractiveness. I'd say WW, Dalbeattie, Vale or a Uni team the likely candidates to go down. Another west club coming down from the SPFL would help - with Cove unlikely to be club 42, Albion Rovers and perhaps Queen's Park could be relegated to the LL.
  12. New set up for next season

    Peebles posted the First Division setup (no doubt this document will be eventually made public) - interesting to note Hawick RAU, presumably the U stands for United?
  13. New set up for next season

    Is that correct or did you mean the Qualifying Leagues (which were at the start of the season)? And assuming it's the Qualifying Leagues which are gone, was there any mention of the EOS Qualifying Cup or South Challenge Cup?
