It wont be long before there are more u-20 teams in this league than there are u-21 teams in the whole of Scotland.

Must mean they are playing elsewhere away from Newbyres Park as there's been no news/planning permission for their move to a new ground (3g/lights) or getting lights.

Hopefully there are enough players in the area to support all the U20s, given WW, Nitten, Dalkeith have teams and Bonnyrigg are starting one up.

Vital they get somewhere close by Ginaro but sure they’ll have something in mind.

Blackburn United will be entering after the false start this season. Possibly the only U20 side in West Lothian as things stand (Livingston FC apart)

I’d be taking a big deposit.

what u21 leagues are still around? Juvenile football has been dying a slow death since clubs started doing their own in house youth development

http://www.west-of-scotland-21s-football-league.co.uk/ League tables list 34 teams though 5 have resigned.

The success of the LL/EOS under 20s hasn't gone unnoticed in the west:

Hopefully if the west juniors slot in at tier 6 some of their u21s join the LL u20s

Originally the EOS U19s played on Sundays and I think the short-lived U21s played on Saturdays. There has been a social shift with more players in their late teens wanting their weekends to themselves - whether to do part-time jobs while still at school, to come home from university or college, or let's be honest to recover from the night before...! Where this league cracked it was the dual move of shifting to Friday nights, predominantly on 3G venues (but still requiring good standard of facilities); and allowing a couple of overage players a limited number of times each.

There was always a big incentive for clubs... being senior, they could move players seamlessly between adult team and U20s, and it was always known for good refereeing and strict discipline.

Dual move enhanced this for clubs - by giving adult players returning from injuries a run-out, and making it possible for youngsters to feature for the adult team on the Saturday without them missing their U20s game or losing their whole weekend. It also enhanced this for players - by almost guaranteeing them a game every week, and not impinging upon their weekend. Standards have then risen.

Similar story with Highland equivalents (Aberdeenshire + NofS).

In same period U21s football has shrunk to 3 dozen clubs in Strathclyde; and SPFL league to 9 teams including EK; IIRC.

Camelon v Tynecastle game abandoned due to serious injury to a player in 2nd half. Camelon leading 6 nil at the time, again a decision will need to be made.

Game was abandoned due to Tynecastle refusing to continue the game, there was an injury that was attended to by the ambulance service but the time it took for them to respond was extremely quick and the player was removed all within 20 mins, the ref then proceeded to re-start and at this point Tynecastle 6 nil down advised the ref they no longer wanted to continue the game and still took it to the sub committee for a replay.

Thankfully the boy only had a strain and it wasn't at all serious.

Has there been a decision regarding the outcome of the game?

It started at 7:30pm this time instead of 8pm.

Unfortunately it was abandoned after Kelty's goalkeeper suffered a broken leg early into 2nd half with the score tied at 1-1... couldn't make it up.

St Andrews

Linlithgow

Syngenta

Glenrothes Strollers

Glenrothes Juniors

Bonnyrigg

Arniston

Eyemouth

Penicuik

Blackburn

I am almost certain more will set up in this very high quality league

The setup hasn't gone unnoticed in the west - wonder if we could eventually see all of the Lowland area playing U20s?

(couple of other copy & paste tweets if you want to see more replies: https://twitter.com/search?f=tweets&q=lowland league%2Feos&src=typd

Following Clydebanks Twitter they great admires of the U20s set -up, I can see the U21s that's in the West slowly dying over the next few years.

Having as many teams in the U20s would be good if they can keep the amazing standard that it is just now.
