  1. Maybe Houston United are replacing Thorn in the League i,e, moving as a new club under their own name?
  2. By far the biggest source of info was the SAFA site but I found it very difficult to figure out what was meant when games went to pens and or extra time. It was, frequently, a question of best guess. If you check it out you will see what I mean. My main concern was getting the names of the winning teams correct in each match and round. The actual score-lines were often hard to find and I did not go to the lengths of checking Twitter etc for each match where there was a question mark over scores. I was interested in seeing how leagues and divisions might compare. In Ayrshire there were three Cups which I tried to cover i.e. SFA, WoS Amat and Ayrshire Amat. Putting that lot together somehow could be a reasonably solid basis for assessing clubs from that league against others from other leagues. Hope that helps.
  3. Aren't Armadale Thistle ground sharing at Bathgate Thistle whilst they get their new plastic pitch and flood-lights installed?
  4. It certainly makes for an exciting, and nervy, end of season for supporters . Keeps them on their toes, thinking and chatting about their team, and wanting to be there to support them to the end of the season.

  7. Thanks for clarifying that. Is it proposed to get Division 3 down to 16 clubs in 12 months time regardless to what happens outside the Division?
  8. I was referring to possibilities at the end of the coming season (2022/23) i.e. the AGM before 2023/24.
  9. Guessing that the aim is five Divisions of 16 clubs so 80 in total. If that's the aim and no club wins promotion to the Lowland League, and none are received from the Lowland, then it would be 3 up 3 down except for Division 3 which would need to relegate 6 clubs (not 5). Glensmad has previously posted something to the effect that the Premier Division would run with one or two extra clubs for a season if there were more clubs received from the Lowland League than promoted to it from the WOSL. If so then what happens the next season would have to be sorted out at the AGM before the season starts. Quite a flexible arrangement, although there's a chance that things could go wrong if say clubs from the EOS (or SOS) won the promotion places for two or three seasons in a row.
  10. Guessing that the aim is five Divisions of 16 clubs so 80 in total. If that's the aim and no club wins promotion to the Lowland League, and none are received from the Lowland, then it would be 3 up 3 down except for Division 3 which would need to relegate 6 clubs (not 5).
  11. Just thought it would be handy to have all news from the AGM on one thread. Awaiting news on the lower Divisions/Conferences, Max number of Clubs in constitution, etc
  12. Fair points! However, the draw could already take Wick Academy down to Newton Stewart.
  13. With the NCL gaining a place in the SFA Cup for its' Champions, regardless of being licenced, it reminds me that SoS clubs have something else to consider i.e. possibly losing the right of the Champions to enter the Cup, if unlicenced, if Tier 6 status is lost.
  14. Maybe with the Champions guaranteed entry, regardless of being licenced or not, will this give some food for thought to clubs not currently in the NCL i.e. about joining the league? I am thinking about clubs from the western parts of the North Juniors and others which have not previously considered it worthwhile moving from Summer football. It may give a boost to some clubs which have intentions to improve their facilities or are already on that route. Maybe they will be able to better access Grant Aid in future. Taking the long view this could be a game changer for the NCL.

    I have recorded virtually all Regional amateur cup competition results for the Scottish Winter Amateur football leagues on Excel for 2021/22. One sheet per competition.

    See excel attached. Hope this is of some use.

      Thanks for that - I'll take a look and see what I'm missing!

      Ah - I had these from the Scottish Amateur FA website.  I notice you added the Ayrshire Cup (which isn't an SAFA competition, but is run by the Ayrshire Amateurs).

      These results are essential for making worthwhile comparisons between the leagues.  I've got the results for the 4 previous seasons also (16-17 to 19-20), and 16, 17, 18 and 19 for the Highland Cup, so hopefully that will give some depth.  The main problem is that the SAFA isn't always correct with its results, especially with ET and PENS scores (sometimes confusing ET with PENS).
