Won’t or can’t?
I meant move across to the pyramid, so 'won't', though obviously at the moment there's nowhere to go.

Obviously folk are just interested in the pyramid generally, but there is actually a more relevant motive too. The issue of where the Tayside junior clubs go has a big impact on where the EoSFL fits in, and what happens to the ERSJFA generally. I had always felt the issue of the pyramid in the north was really for them and not my business, but the possibility of the ERSJFA sitting alongside the EoSFL only comes about because the stronger Tayside clubs won't move across. So what happens under the HL affects us all.

A very fair point.

The vote tally was reported at the time as:

15 - Turriff United

14 - Strathspey Thistle

11 - Formartine United

5 - Banks O'Dee

Guessing that would be 15 members of the HFL at the time with 3 votes each. 5/15 isn't horrible and with Strathspey winning so many I think it shows the league was prioritising balancing between Highland and Aberdeenshire.

Having "balance" between the 2 regions has been important to the HFL, as is reflected in the changes in membership since 1986/87 :

LOST CLUBS :  Inverness Caley, Inverness Thistle, Ross County & Elgin City (all from the 'traditional' central Highland area), and Peterhead (from Aberdeenshire)

NEW CLUBS : Fort William (from West Highlands), Wick Academy (from north Highlands),  Strathspey Thistle (from central/south Highlands), and Cove Rangers, Inverurie Locos, Formartine United, & Turiff United (from Aberdeenshire).

The changes highlighted above, show how the HFL has expanded its area during the last 30 years, beyond its traditional roots, which were centred primarily around the city of Inverness. This expansion of its territory, has undoubtedly made the HFL a stronger league, than would otherwise have been the case. Therefore, I can't see that any geographical 'bias' has been exercised  against Banks O'Dee.
