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.

I watched Tynecastle 3-4 Upper Annandale at Saughton tonight.

Entertaining game. Tynie looked to have a very young side. They were deservedly 3-1 up 10 minutes into the second half, but contrived to lose it, with the "uppers" finishing much the stronger side.

Watch out! Blackburn look very, very good...

Missed the first 15 mins but still saw 5 or 6 goals for them and a dominant display 👍

Decent game between 2 decent sides spoiled by a woeful match official.

From making Kelty take a bye kick again because the ball wasn't out of the box to sending off the Dunipace keeper at 1-0 in the second half for picking the ball up INSIDE his box.

From 40 yards away wrongly deciding it was outside the box then compounding that first error by sending the keeper off for denying the Pace defender who was closest to him and the ball a goalscoring opportunity .

Proper mind blowing stuff.

Superb start tonight and a dominant performance which could have been more. Hill of Beath sub came off the bench at 3-0 in the 53rd minute and 30 seconds later saw red after a horrendous tackle which set off a scuffle. Our player lucky not be be badly injured.

 

Goals included a 40 yard lob and a 25 yard free kick in off the post. Attendance around the 80 mark.

Thanks for the heads up Spyro :D. 

Good week for United 6 points on the board from 2 difficult fixtures.
