My World Cup Pick

  1. 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.
  2. As reported in the Edinburgh Evening News the majority of Junior clubs wish to join the senior pyramid system. There will now be an egm called by the SJFA to vote on the issue. The pressure is now on the clubs to decide but this could mark the end of Junior Football as we know it. If a substantial number of the bigger clubs decide to vote to leave the others may be forced to follow or be left in what will amount to lower standard football. Like it or not change is now on the cards.
  3. North of Scotland Senior League

    Given the ongoing situation whereby Banks O'Dee can't progress within the 'pyramid', it is important that the SFA forms a North of Scotland Senior League. I would suggest that the pyramid below the Highland League, should be established on the following basis : (1) the best/most ambitious North Region Junior (10) clubs be invited by the SFA (after full consultation) to form a new feeder NoS league for teams in the east & south of the Highland Region (2) the "expanded" North Caledonian League be given equal feeder league status, by incorporating its existing 8 clubs in the north & west of the Highlands plus Inverness City (ex NCL member club), and AN Other west/north club (3) the champions of each of the above leagues to participate in an end of season Playoff to determine the Northern Champions, who (if the club is SFA licensed) would be promoted to the Highland League, replacing the bottom HFL club. (It should NOT be compulsory that these clubs obtain an SFA licence, meaning that only teams that wish to progress to the Highland League, could do so). The above would complete the Pyramid in northern Scotland, whilst recognising that for geographical & financial reasons, this vast area needs to have two feeder leagues of equal status.
  4. It's back. Contain your excitement. Pyramid playoffs are on the same format and dates as last season. Bookies have Montrose and East Stirlingshire as joint favourites to finish bottom. Brora widely forecast to retain HL... Edinburgh City, East Kilbride and Gretna tipped for LL. It was only Day 1 in SPFL2 but who'd have predicted this for the bottom places: P W D L GD Pts 6 Montrose 1 0 0 1 -1 0 7 East Fife 1 0 0 1 -1 0 = Queen's P 1 0 0 1 -1 0 = Stirling 1 0 0 1 -1 0 -------------------------------- 10 Arbroath 1 0 0 1 -3 0 Highland & Lowland are 3 games in... Brora already look HL champions elect, having banged in 22 goals for only 1 against, winning their last pair of games 11-0 and 1-8 : P W D L GD Pts 1 Brora 3 3 0 0 +21 9 -------------------------------- 2 Turriff 3 3 0 0 +11 9 3 Cove 3 3 0 0 +7 9 4 Inverurie 3 2 0 1 +4 6 5 Nairn 3 2 0 1 +3 6 6 Formartine 3 2 0 1 +1 6 Late equalisers and winners knocked Selkirk off to spot in the LL, champions Edinburgh City out front again: P W D L GD Pts 1 Edin City 3 3 0 0 +5 9 -------------------------------- 2 Selkirk 3 2 1 0 +5 7 3 Gala FR 3 2 0 1 +2 6 4 Whitehill 3 2 0 1 +2 6 5 East Kilb 3 2 0 1 +1 6 Back at the end of the month...
  5. A few questions...

    ...The LL members who were deficient in licenses, has that been sorted or if so what are the deadlines for that? ...Assuming all parties retain their position in the LL, when will the new members be announced? ...Will there be relegation from the LL? Or is that dependent on licensing? ...What happens if the Juniors agree to a pyramid? Will they file in at the lowest available opportunity? Probably at EOS/SOS Level (This was my understanding) Just curious as I love the idea of a pyramid and allowing teams to find their level on the park.
  6. How refreshing it is to have a season beginning where, finally, a form of promotion/relegation is available into and out of the Scottish League. Long-awaited. Both the Highland and Lowland leagues have issued their fixture-lists, so it seems like the arrangements are as follows - going by these links: http://slfl.co.uk/2014/07/season-201414-fixtures/ http://www.highlandfootballleague.com/News/Item/433_SHFL_Fixtures_for_Season_2014-15.aspx Early tip for the drop? Early tip to come up?
