Fully justified, IMO.

Junior non-members can qualify by winning their Superleague *or* the Scottish Junior Cup.

Senior non-members can qualify *only* by winning their league. No cup route. (Plus their leagues contain many licensed clubs - hardly any in Juniors).

As such granting a place to the new South & East of Scotland Cup-Winners' Shield would simply level the playing-field.

All I meant was its probably the the easiest competition for gaining Scottish Cup entry. 

The junior and amateur cups, al keep my opinions to myself whether they should be in or not, play several rounds to qualify.

Leith will have no chance of a licence then if they are at Meadowbank 3G next season?  Or would they be allowed to arrange a groundshare for 2018/19 and get a licence on that basis?

Any predictions on how Preston will do next season?  If Kelty join then I'd put them at 4th place at best.  Could be wrong though but LTVH and Leith seem to be easily above the lower Lowland League teams.  I think I'd predict Tynecastle to finish ahead of them right now as well.

 

 

Seen kelty recently. They've so much quality and strength in depth. If they were in LL I'd have them as favourites for the title.

My post doesn't read so well actually.  I meant that Preston would be 4th at best.  You'd obviously expect Kelty to win the East of Scotland League although it won't necessarily be very easy as LTVH and Leith are clearly Lowland League quality playing-wise but are stuck in the EoS because of licensing issues.  I'd be very surprised if Kelty didn't finish top of the EoS and I guess they'd be favourites to win the Lowland League too (although there could be another ex-SPFL club or two in the league by then depending on how promotion/relegation goes this/next season.

Worth remembering that LTHV beat Kelty 3-0 so it might not be quite so easy as some think for them...although they'd still be big favourites regardless.

LTHV a good side but that kelty side is a lot stronger now. Some good sides loading up below the LL can only be a good thing
