  1. Agreed. From a recent visit to the Queensferry Sports Hub I did not feel that I was at a potential EoSFL ground. EOSFL management will need to show a high degree of flexibility so that new clubs can come on board. The distance from the new AWP to the changing rooms may be an impediment.
  2. How would the relegation of Vale of Leithen affect the structure assuming that Talbot (or another WoSFL club) win the promotion play-off to the Lowland League?
  3. Both Bo’ness sides drawn at home (not together).
  4. Thanks for the feedback. With an 11 team division you will always have a club without a league fixture during each league round. I appreciate that the EOSFL are pretty good at filling in the void week with a cup game if you are lucky. The possibility of Saughton or Peffermill being available for a new club(s) represents an interesting opportunity for 2022/23.
  5. With the bottom “ex West Lothian” division running with 11 teams would there any benefit in the EOSFL allowing some flexibility and accommodating a late applicant - “club 12” - that would be focussed on using Saughton as their home ground? It would be much better to run the new division with 12 teams rather than 11. Is it too late? The unusual position could be made known in the press.
  6. There must be a few existing clubs in the EOSFL that do not have adjacent changing rooms - Peebles and Inverkeithing certainly come to mind. There are likely to have been other issues that also played a significant part in Letham not meeting league entry criteria. I hope Letham can address the issues and reapply to the EOSFL for the 2022/23 season rather than try to join the emerging Midland League.
  7. Referring to the “blue” Second Division for 2022/23. Why will it have 18 clubs rather than 16 clubs.? This will leave the “red” Third Division with only 9 clubs for 2022/23 (if new applicants do not materialise). It all appears a little messy to me and in my view does not accord with the high standard that the EOSFL has previously set. I say this as a firm supporter of the EOSFL and the progress that the league has made in developing the Pyramid.
  8. Sink or swim? Football is constantly changing with new clubs evolving and long established clubs declining, stagnating and sometimes dissolving. It will be very interesting to see the "football map" and the changing landscape in the next decade or so. New initiatives in my view should not be stifled at birth but they do need to prove themselves. Bo'ness Athletic have been given that opportunity and now need to prove that they can sustain themselves.
  9. Any games in Argyll next week Sunday 23rd to Friday 28th May please - men’s adult, ladies and youth U16 to U21. I am covered for the Saturdays. Any feedback would be very helpful.
  10. The second tweet - the President Statement was completely new. The first tweet was repetition but I included it to provide a context. On reflection I should perhaps have left it out .
