No. Groundhop can cover various leagues, as noted above with Cumbernauld Colts from the Lowland League also a candidate for the Friday night game.

Oh right, wondered why Mid Annandale were only South team mentioned?
Be good if they got involved with the teams in the South League. Good days out in the towns down here in the Shire.

It has been suggested to the League that we should attempt a ground hop and it was just suggested that it was gonna be too hard to achieve

So are they visiting Broadwood on the basis that Colts are now the primary club there and not Clyde? I know a lot of the saddos hoppers won't visit a groundsharing club.

I'm guessing that the guys that arrange this weekend will be rubbing their hands at the expected number of new entrants for next season give they've never done Junior fitba to the best of my knowledge.

A West or East Superleague weekend would have been more interesting imo than the last couple of years mopping up stray LL and EOS grounds, but complete leagues is what these beer-bellied, SLR-toting anoraks seem to want. Mind you the organiser said he approached the Juniors and... wait for it... they weren't interested.

I'm sure I read that they had presented at a West Region meeting and received fairly positive feedback. Maybe it was all to difficult for their fixtures secretary to comprehend.

Maybe you're right. I was told by somebody at Whitehill that the Juniors weren't prepared to stagger kick off times and rearrange fixtures to Sunday.
