  1. Fauldhouse United 2018/19

    Disastrous season? League form has been below par yes but disastrous season is a pathetic comment Respect to you as always JC. Just wondering what your vision for the club is in 5 years time?
  2. Should youth clubs enter the SFA Senior Pyramid?

    Just wondering if there is any news on Musselburgh Windsor FC and whether this progressive youth club are going to have another go at entering a team in the EoSL. I was disappointed that Windsor were unable to gain entry for 2018/19 but it was obvious that Pinkies and Whitecraig do not meet EoSL criteria. In my view nothing has changed in this respect. I wonder what the possibility would be for a groundshare with Musselburgh Athletic FC for 2019/20? With Musselburgh Ath U20's (formerly Musselburgh Windsor) doing OK in the Lowland Development U20 League surely the time is right for Windsor to come forward as a loosely-linked "feeder club" with the following caveats: - Windsor to negotiate groundshare with Athletic; - in return Windsor provide players for Musselburgh Ath U20's next season in the Lowland Development U20 League; - Windsor would be playing at lower tier of EoSL than Athletic so not in direct competition; - the two clubs develop a firm understanding that higher level players go to Athletic in Tier 6 with the rest forming the pool for Windsor in EoSL at Tier 7. This sort of arrangement seems to be working quite well in some towns in England: - Coggeshall Town / Coggeshall United - Biggleswade Town / Biggleswade FC - Brackley Town / Brackley Town Saints ETC Times are changing in Scottish Non League Football and at the Senior level new links may be possible where entrenched views may no longer hold sway. The article on the right hand side column may be of interest:

  4. EoS Conference C chat 2018-19

    Good advertising for Tuesday's match:
  5. EoS Conference B chat 2018-19

    A good write-up. Should be a great attendance at Dunipace for the Hop game on Friday 29th under lights.
  6. Junior football, what is the future?

    Repeat from the other thread: There has to be some form of negotiation (in other words give and take) and in my view any club in a revamped Eastern Scotland Regional League (or whatever new title is used) should be given the opportunity to be members of the SJFA if they desire which would give them access to the Junior Cup.

    I think Syngenta are more inteterested in the Semis this week! Then there is the adult side: https://www.leaguewebsite.co.uk/sdafa/TeamFixtures?age=22&division=3077&team=149645 https://www.leaguewebsite.co.uk/sdafa/Divisions
  9. New clubs in the East of Scotland

    From recent posts I am forming the opinion that Syngenta are "not the flavour of the month" in your part of Falkirk! When I used to be involved in youth football some clubs (managers) were a real turn off that we really disliked. Just wondering if there are any similar issues buried beneath your posts. Apologies if I am wrong. From what I have read Syngenta would be a real credit to the EoSL. Personally I think that the EoSL management should be going that extra mile to help "incubate" progressive teams like Syngenta.

    Can Bo'ness United Juniors really use the Bo'ness United title? https://twitter.com/LinlithgowThAFC/status/1103728366123921410 Will they be a sort of reserve team?
  11. Clubs with strong youth set-ups - some with SFA Quality Mark status or Legacy level status - now have difficult choices to make: Do they continue as they are and allow EOS Senior clubs to siphon off their best talent for Lowland Development U20 League teams? OR Do they form partnerships as the youth sections of established EOS Senior clubs? OR Do they go the "whole hog" like Glenrothes Strollers and Syngenta Juveniles and seek to form their own Senior teams in the EOSL? Sygenta already appear to be "stealing a march" over their rivals with this form of progressive advertising over the last 6 months: Can Legacy level clubs such as AM Soccer Club afford to be left behind? What is the best way forward? NB: For more debate and news see

  14. Junior football, what is the future?

    Talbot 1978 how about telling us some real news rather than simply sniping Alan and others It is becoming so very tedious. You feel passionate about the Juniors which we all understand - but do give us some news on what is going on among Junior clubs in the background and make your case coherently. Do give us some news about your club in particular. We then perhaps can better understand your position.
  15. Potential New Pyramid League ( West Sector)

    You have stirred my interest Alan! Are you able to tell us what are the outstanding issues that were highlighted?
