A move to the EoSFL next season is the best decision IMO for the club. But will the dinosaurs in the club do the right thing ?

After the consultation they should call an EGM and have a member vote.

It's sad that it has taken a mass exodus to make things potentially happen.

You will need to see what they come up with at meeting but if they're proposing to trust TJ and his hollow promises then the ones that believe that should all resign on the spot.

Three busloads of Wee Rose fans are heading through just to ensure it meets their strict criteria

I am all for us joining the EOSL. Initially for the fear of being left behind but if Junior football is to evolve then the Pyramid is the way forward. What we all need to know is the big picture. What are the benefits? We have had a couple of posts highlighting what we can expect but no hard facts perhaps Tynie, you can give us a bit of  background. Knowing you a good few stones will have been turned over in search of the "promised land"

People assuming meeting is a prelude to an application to join the EoSL. Might not be the case

The notice for the meeting clearly states that the committee now considers it has all the information that it needs to explain the options that are available to the club and that is what they want to present to the members. What happens after that is done is anyone's guess.

I do hope it's the start of the process for a nice to the EoSFL but there's no assumptions on my part that the members will go in that direction.

Been a BU now for 55 years since my dad first took me as a nipper .

Never been a member , but have full trust that the members will do the right thing , which is hopefully a push to move to EoS league .

Who really wants a trip to Tayside  almost every other week which is what will happen if not this year then the subsequent years as more teams leave .

Full marks to Kelty for reading things right and getting their move spot on .

We wait and see .

Do you think TJ has ever read these benefits? He'll need to make sure his pension fund is adequate to compensate when he's out of a job.

I think quite a few people on our respective committee's are in the same boat.   Yes moving is a massive gamble, so was joining the Super League in the day.   But doing nothing is just not an option.
