As they use freshers heavily and many returners will live far away, they always receive the first month off, then catch-up.

Sad decline of the Scottish Youth Cup since they made it U18s illustrated again as only 40 teams enter this season - meaning an entire round has been removed, and only 8 ties v 10 byes in new R1. Two clubs exempt to Last 32 didn't even enter. Overall entry is 21 SPFL clubs; 9 Lowland/East/South clubs (out of 31); 3 North of Scotland (out of 6); and 7 Aberdeenshire (out of 10).


First Round (Friday 27th September)

North

Banks o'Dee v Lossiemouth
Fraserburgh v Huntly
Inverurie v Elgin
Byes: Deveronvale, Formartine, Montrose, Turriff

Central
Civil Service v Partick
Dunipace v Camelon
Spartans v Stirling Albion
Tynecastle v Inverkeithing
Byes: Alloa, Bonnyrigg, Kelty, St Johnstone, St Mirren

South
QotS v Bonnyton
Bye: Ayr

We looked at entering but too difficult to pull a scratch side together.   They need to move this back to U20 otherwise the gradual decline will continue.

Have there been some more changes to the make of the leagues? Was looking at the EOS league tables and saw the U20s ones had been added - seems like there's no Colts, Edusport, or HWU listed?

Relax.

It will just be to do with first week's fixtures being listed (they only go up weekly on EOSL site).

Cumbernauld's odd team in Conference A, while the unis and Edusport start in 4 weeks.
