With agreement looking all but sorted in the West this could mean that all current West Juniors join the new WoS.

This looks like a Win Win situation in the West.

Likely to be followed rapidly with WinWins everywhere else with all current Junior clubs moving into current or new senior leagues whilst keeping their option to retain entry to the Junior Cup.

Guessing that the North, Tayside and West Lothian clubs will make the switch in time for next season (whenever that may be).

Maybe in the Highland zone the Tayside (North) clubs will start their own league.  Guessing that initially there may be three separate Tier 6 senior leagues i.e. Tayside, North and NCL.

The West Lothian clubs situation is helped by the EoS clubs decision to have Conferences at Division One (Tier 7) level next season. They will have the opportunity to reach Tier 6 quickly so they aren't being punished for holding out against the pyramid.

Guessing that this is the ideal opportunity for the remaining south of Tay Bridge Juniors to switch to the pyramid via the EoS's  Tier 7 Conferences next season.

If the new WoS clubs all remain members of the SJFA and play in the Junior Cup, it wouldn't make any difference to the East and North Juniors though.

No sure any West Lothian clubs are interested. Happy where they are.


Madness if that’s true, the best players and the sponsors will go LL, EOS and WOS and they’ll slowly end up gloried amateur teams. How many teams have they got left? Can’t be much more than 10 with the defectors and Sygenta scrambling for a ground. Join the EOS and demand the same SJC deal the WRJFA seem to have with membership of the SJFA retained.

Not only do the West Lothian clubs appear to have no interest in the EOS but the Tayside teams do not want to be part of the Highland league set up. 

So we're a long way from having an "all in" pyramid in Scotland.

Sadly Tayport are tweeting that they are in financial trouble. See NLS.

Their regular car boot sales have been closed so significant loss of regular income. Virus issue is the problem.

Let's hope they can get through this.

They posted a gofundme which has now surpassed its £500 target, so hopefully they will be ok.

And you don't need to say "See NLS" - their site has a twitter list of all clubs, just post the link to the post on the club's twitter instead. ;)

Very pleased to hear that Tayport's appeal is working well. Sorry that I cannot help them.

FYI:   This is the complete bunch of tweets giving the Chairman's appeal. Parts seemed desperate.

"To all supporters of Tayport Football Club and all members of the local community who use the facilities at the Cannipairt. These are extraordinary times, like many other businesses and organisations, the COVID-19 pandemic is having a significant financial impact on the running

of the football club.

 

 

As Chairman, I write to you at a time of need. Our club has been in existence since 1947 and has a proud and successful history. Our success in the Scottish Junior Cup, competing in 5 cup finals, put not only our club but the community of Tayport on the map.

 

 

Unfortunately, our income is raised largely from fundraising through our Car Boot Sales which has had to be suspended indefinitely and with no football we have no income from gate receipts. Other fundraisers, such as the Super 6, predictors and bingo have also had to be suspended

 

 

We now find ourselves in a very difficult position with no income and virtually no funds. In the short term, we have been successful in reducing some of our running costs. Along with the player wages we have been able to suspend a number of our overheads over the next 2 months.

 

 

However, we still have a number of bills to pay - gas, electricity, etc. The uncertainty around when we can start up again in a business as usual manner is not clear. Therefore, our financial position is very bleak and places the very existence of the club in doubt.

 

 

To help us through this period, I would, through desperation, ask you for any form of financial assistance you can offer at this time. You will appreciate such an approach has not been an easy decision but it is one the club has been forced to make. With your help

 

 

In the short term, I'm confident we can get through this and hopefully come out stronger at the other end. Please click the link provided below, any contribution would be greatly appreciated. "Support the Port" David Baikie Chairman, Tayport FC"
