  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 .
  11. Harmony Row Youth Club to join WoSFL Harmony Row Youth Club are delighted to announce that our application to the West of Scotland Football League has been accepted. We would like to thank all the members of the WoSFL board, and member clubs for your support and acceptance of our application. For the first time in our 106 year history we now have a team in senior Scottish football. This is something that we are immensely proud of. This development now means that our male pathway is complete. From mini kickers to senior football. We hope the foundations that have been made by those who came before us can now be built upon to make Harmony Row a famous name within the senior leagues of Scottish football as it is currently within the youth and amateur leagues. We would like to thank all the people who have worked tirelessly over the years to grow our reputation and make Harmony Row the club that we are all proud of. We would also like to thank the current Harmony Row board, the football committee and coaches at Harmony Row Youth Club for their support and tireless work at our club. We have a membership now of over 400 boys, girls, men & women playing football at Harmony Row. Without the volunteers we have supporting us, we could not play the part we do within our local community. Please follow our social media accounts to keep up to date with all the latest news from Harmony Row Youth Club. FACEBOOK TWITTER INSTAGRAM #WeAreHarmonyRow
  12. Under Option 1 how do you establish the number of promotion places from the newly created 11 team “Division Three (Tier 9 )” ? How many teams will be promoted to Division One (Tier 7) and Division Two (Tier 8 ) from the new division? How many teams are to be relegated from the Division One Conferences to the 2022/23 Division Three (Tier 9). What are the basic workings behind Option 1?
  13. You have missed my main point completely. How would you solve the conundrum in a fair and equitable manner that both existing and new clubs consider acceptable and a worthy management approach for the EOSFL to follow?
  14. Thanks for the feedback. Option 1 presents the conundrum of how the respective 2021/22 club placings are fairly distributed into the respective leagues for the 2022/23 season. What magic formula do the EOSFL management propose to implement that will deliver a four tier league based on playing ability? I hope that “sporting integrity” is not again compromised as we have just seen in the Lowland League “OF colts debacle”.
  15. The latest press coverage: https://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/ayrshire/west-scotland-league-nine-new-24090768 Extract: ”Nine new teams have been accepted into the West of Scotland League with more expected to follow ahead of a new division kicking off in July. St Peters, Harthill, Harmony Row, Kilsyth Athletic, Finnart, Glenvale, Campbeltown Pupils AFC, Westerton Utd and Broomhill Sports Club join as associate members and will ply their trade in a standalone WoSFL Development League. The new set-up allows ambitious clubs time to get their grounds up to a standard that would make them eligible to join the WoSFL's Third Division as early as 2022.”
  16. It is interesting to question why Harthill Royal can only be an Associate Member? Surely as a bona fide semi-professional club with a strong Junior pedigree they would meet the full membership entry requirements of the WOSFL.
