  1. Junior football, what is the future?

    Has TJ informed Junior Clubs when the next meeting of the Pyramid Working Group will be held? I would have thought that it would have been of much greater importance than "Player looking for club". http://www.scottishjuniorfa.com/sjfa/scottish_fa_news.cfm?page=1747 One of most important developments - the SFA Pyramid - in the history of Junior football and not a whisper on the Scottish Junior Football Association website.
  2. Junior football, what is the future?

    SENIOR DEBUT FOR JEANFIELD Manager Ross Gunnion had this to say when asked about the new season and the future ahead for the club. "Here we are at the beginning of another season, albeit it’s not just any other season!" "In my 7 years as player and manager at this club I’ve not encountered a pre-season that has held this much excitement and optimism." "We’ve called time on 90 years in the Junior game and embarked on a new chapter in the clubs history, one which now sees Jeanfield Swifts enter the Senior ranks in the East of Scotland League." "Pre-Season has went well, even if it’s been a little rushed given the earlier than usual season opener for us. We’ve welcomed 5 new signings to the team and all have settled in well." "But now the real action starts and I’m excited to see how our existing players have improved and how our new additions will perform against a top class team in Bo’ness Utd." "As a start it couldn’t have been much tougher, but that’s a mark of where we are as a club. We have worked incredibly hard to get ourselves to a level where we are on an equal footing with teams like Bo’ness, Linlithgow Rose and Bonnyrigg Rose. We forged ourselves into the best Junior Club in Perthshire and we are now faced with new challenges and promotion to the Lowland League as the target for the club." "We’ll visit old friends and also travel to new grounds and form new relationships." "I for one am incredibly excited by what this season and the future will hold. We hope all our fans and supporters will feel the same and we’ll be doing our utmost to repay that support with results." Updated 21:54 - 27 Jul 2018 by Scott Cummings All the best to Jeanfield Swifts in their move over from Junior football. Clubs in the West Region will be watching their development with interest.
  3. Junior football, what is the future?

    "Junior football, what is the future?" is a brilliant thread and one of my favourite memories will always be watching the dominoes fall one by one while on holiday in Cuba back in May. On the downside is that it is almost impossible to trawl back through 558 pages to identify a particular issue highlighted during the informed discussion. I started the "WoSFL Pyramid Deadline - SJFA or Club led" thread to cover the position in the West Region but I agree with BM that at times the new thread covered other issues already mentioned in the main thread. As the the OP for the WoSFL thread I can confirm that I did not delete the thread earlier in the week - nor did I receive any explanation for the deletion. My own view is that we were perhaps moving into territory that made the SJFA Executive feel highly uncomfortable with and that "noises" or "pressures" were made to P&B. However we all know that the issues raised will not be going away. Here we all are back on the main thread. NB: Is it possible BM to create a brief index at the beginning of the main thread? The way things are going it will not be so far away that we have 1,000 pages to trawl through.

    Just in case anyone forgets the " WoSFL Pyramid Deadline - SJFA or Club led? " thread -28 pages and 24,000 views before destruction. I for one have always believed in free speech and did not expect the sort of censorship we have just seen. However, killing an informative thread will not halt Pyramid progess. Does anyone know the deadline that is being set for the formation of the West Region Tier 6 Pyramid? Q1. Have the clubs given the the SJFA a clear official mandate (instructions of desired outcome) regarding the SJFA as whole becoming part of the Pyramid? And the West Region in particular? Response: A clear mandate has not been provided or explicit requirements for the West Region. Q2. Is the SJFA Management properly committed to the Pyramid or will we just see further evasive delays? Response: We will see over the coming months whether SJFA will achieve a successful outcome from their dialogue with the SFA/PWG to join the Pyramid. Q3. Was a realistice deadline set at the SJFA West Region Annual General Meeting which will enable the West Region to retain control of the emerging WoSFL? Or will we lose control? Response: It has been confirmed that whilst the West AGM dealt with their re-organisation, there was no discussion on the Pyramid or the likelihood of a WoSFL being set-up over the next 12 months. Q4. Can the SJFA Management (TJ) be trusted to broker a good deal for the West Region with the Pyramid Working Group / SFA within an agreed timescale? Or should the West Region take over negotiations? Response: Time will tell. I would suggest that a firm deadline is set for 31st January 2019 for the formation of a West Region controlled WoSFL which will enable all WR clubs to transfer over to the Pyramid for 2019/20. If this deadline cannot be met by the above date then a Club led initiative should begin (in earnest) on 1st February 2019 with the support of the EoSFL.

    Does anyone know why the thread - WoSFL Pyramid Deadline - SJFA or Club led? - was destroyed?

    Very difficult to post on the P&B site today - stretching of the adverts on the side-bars is hiding the "submit reply" button. Tends to be worse in Firefox than Chrome.
