There has been mention of at least 10 new 20s teams looking to come onboard next season.

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

It would be excellent if they could get up to a full complement of 2 conferences of 16 (anything beyond that would require a more elaborate arrangement). There's no question that this model has proven the way forward. That would mean another 9 clubs if everyone currently participating stayed on.

If anything the concern may be the sustainability of player numbers in some areas. Gala, Blackburn and Sauchie failed to make the start line for this season while Tranent folded in the autumn and Preston - serial offenders of late - more recently. Probably the only negative in previous years had been Preston, Burntisland and Selkirk collapsing.

Is it no part of licensing to have youth sides  ?

It isn't mandatory to have a youth set-up...

Looking at U20 level - now called "reserve" in SPFL - Inverness do not have a team; only 9 out of 20 part-time SPFL clubs have a team*; Civil Service, East Stirlingshire, Burntisland, Linlithgow, Preston and none of the licensed Border or D+G clubs in LL and EOSL have teams; and Fort William, Rothes, Strathspey and Wick don't have teams.

 

*including Edinburgh City in Lowland/East set-up; Elgin in North of Scotland set-up; and Annan and Stranraer's SOSL teams

Most of "Section 7 - Youth Team Football Criteria" is basically best practice for Entry level.

Kelty 4-0 Camelon tonight decent game, Camelon were ok. Good to see the Kelty defence taking turns at keeping Kieran Anderson in their back pockets though.

 Kelty got 2 pretty poor decisions from the ref and the scoreline was no reflection on how Camelon played against a team that is by far meant to be the best 20s team around, great performance from Camelon 20's  considering the investment Kelty have put into their 20s compared to the other 20s teams in the league.

Baws it was a clear penalty no idea what your sidelines were moaning about. :) Haven't seen many teams put in 1st team ringers in games up at Kelty, didn't work anyway.

Looking forward to this next season. I believe the prep work is well underway at Blackburn, no dropping of the ball this time round.

Its happened again :(

"Bit of a bizarre moment here at Synergy Park. Floodlights have cut off at 10.15 so extra time won’t be going ahead. Referee has abandoned game and tie to be replayed at a later date."

Don't understand why they did not kick off earlier if they knew the floodlights went off at 10.15, a bit of common sense needed.

Kelty again, too, after having journeyed down to Kilmarnock. Lid needs putting on these occurrences and I'm sure it will be.

Have to do away with extra time and go straight to pens for everyone’s sake Hibee.

That could be a solution for future seasons.

Here and now there is ET, and club shouldn't be hosting ties that might not finish and hoping, or not knowing. If no override is available use a different ko or venue.  Per above - "common sense".

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.

Kelty now playing  Mid Annandale in second round on Friday, three q-finals being played same night.
