East/West Combined Super League

Recommended Posts

We regularly make two hour journeys to away games. I can honestly say they are not as bad once you get used to them. Us older ones zone out with a book our listen to our "old man's" music on mp3 players. The younger ones including the players seem to have a great time judging by the amount of noise they make on the bus. (a couple of seasons ago we had a PlayStation on the bus which kept them amused).

If I am going out on any particular Saturday evening, I will drive to the match.

Can't say there have been too many long away midweek matches. Perhaps one or two a season.

My other half is a Carlisle fan, on a few occasions I have accompanied her on a journey to Yeovil or Bournemouth. Now they are long journeys. However there still seems to be a few regulars who go every other week.

One of the most important cases for 'Do We or don't we' is reference to lack of travelling support at the extreme South Ayrshire v Tayside. The costs and time involved are a salient point. Yet we soldier on year after year with numerous games that are a total cash loss. the 'All In Scottish Cup'

Johnstone & Co at Hampden refuse to consider playing early rounds on a regional basis to lets say R3. Look at what the SFA are doing in the new League Cup set up 2016? Aye! early rounds on a Regional Basis.

Hearing there was a vote & only 2 West teams voted yes for the proposal

LADESIDE

Let me guess - Both clubs have someone on the Scottish Management and neither of them have a ground of their own.

So you don't actually need a football stadium to play in the suppa duppa top league of the juniors ????

Judging from info on the SFA website about the managament committee of the west region:

http://www.scottishfa.co.uk/resources/documents/SJFAFiles/WestRegionFiles/Handbook/00%20-%20Handbook%202014-15%20(V-06).pdf

that would be two out of three of Clydebank, Rob Roy and Bellshill Athletic given those clubs currently have no home ground of their own and have west region delegates to the SJFA.

the main selling point from the east seems to be entry into the "big" cup but this is not guaranteed to continue as the lower senior teams are not happy with the juniors walking away with their money and will exclude them at the first oppertunity

On the bright side that got voted down at the last SFA AGM. The key would be getting entry level licensing and full SFA membership in the same manner Linlithgow Rose did.

For how long? The license will be up for review every year and being a part of the pyramid is still a requirement.

There wasn't a vote, Clubs were asked for their views, only 2 from the West, Clydebank and Rob Roy, were in favour.

Dead in the water then, Maybe TJ can now forget this nonsense and do his job and find a Junior Cup sponsor.

That didn't stop the sfa trying to foist the condition on us. And it was made clear that we didn't have indefinite exemption. But nor was a definitive period of time applied to us.
