Then how is it any different if they have a rental agreement with a company to provide the changing rooms and a deal with a contractor for the fencing they may or may not require?

You’d need planning for that, they don’t have it, and they don’t have a n agreement either, reliable source from inside syngenta

As "falkirktv" can you shed some light  as to why  East Stirlingshire's  proposed arrangement (with Galaxy ?) to move to Little Kersh, fell through ? 

Whilst on the subject of Shire, last time I visited Firs Park, it was derelict. Is that still the case ?   

As you are obviously local (to Grangemouth) please could you answer my questions about ESFC  as above?

You’d need to ask the shire about that, suspect they want to be at Falkirk stadium because it’s a big ground and I. Falkirk

Then we go back in a circle suggesting the infrastructure already in place is acceptable to EoS standards. Or whatever changes need to be made can be done in time during the close season.

I was looking on twitter for any sort of references to the issue, someone's asked out right within the last hour.

they'd be better to partner up with someone and save themselves 60k-70k

If so, wouldn't East Stirlingshire be the obvious choice as a partner ?

Don't think despite sharing a training base for years they did anything as both want to keep their own identity (could be wrong though)

What's the deal between Syngenta the company and the proposed senior football team?

Is the company going to be pumping money into the Eos side?

Surely they'd be better taking over Camelon.

 

Just for the falkirktv meltdown that would trigger

The 2nd pitch at Little Kerse looks similar to the one at pinkie that I believe that Musselburgh Windsor were looking at using and got knocked back for.

Seems strange as it’s exactly the same as  the one Leith play on at Peffermill

Distance from changing rooms is considered though.

EOSFA tweeting positively about Musselburgh Windsor tonight, on them making the Scottish Cup final. Maybe feeling well disposed to them?

I think the EOS twitter is just positive about non-league stuff in general.

Jason : I suggested Camelon, and also Dunipace, as possible amalgamation options for Shire, approx 4 - 5 years ago. The club's management 'dismissed' my suggestion, as the move to Little Kersh was their chosen way forward.

Speaking of the EoS twitter, here's one of the latest retweets

Just wondering if there is any news on Musselburgh Windsor FC and whether this progressive youth club are going to have another go at entering a team in the EoSL.

I was disappointed that Windsor were unable to gain entry for 2018/19 but it was obvious that Pinkies and Whitecraig do not meet EoSL criteria. In my view nothing has changed in this respect.

I wonder what the possibility would be for a groundshare with Musselburgh Athletic FC for 2019/20?

With Musselburgh Ath U20's (formerly Musselburgh Windsor) doing OK in the Lowland Development U20 League surely the time is right for Windsor to come forward as a loosely-linked "feeder club" with the following caveats:

- Windsor to negotiate groundshare with Athletic;
- in return Windsor provide players for Musselburgh Ath U20's next season in the Lowland Development U20 League;
- Windsor would be playing at lower tier of EoSL than Athletic so not in direct competition;
- the two clubs develop a firm understanding that higher level players go to Athletic in Tier 6 with the rest forming the pool for Windsor in EoSL in Tier 7.

This sort of arrangement seems to be working quite well in some towns in England:

- Coggeshall Town / Coggeshall United
- Biggleswade Town / Biggleswade FC
- Brackley Town / Brackley Town Saints   ETC

Times are changing in Scottish Non League Football and at the Senior level new links may be possible where entrenched views may no longer hold sway.

Possible dent in the Craigroyston and Leith Athletic merger talk that went around the other week. Craigroyston are looking for a looking for a manager to take the team next season.
