Bit of a side track but I would look to revamp all the cups across the board

Scottish Cup: everyone in the pyramid in. no seeding. no prelims.
League Cup: top two tiers
Challenge Cup: tiers 3 and 4
"Junior" Cup: everyone tier 5 and below
New trophy: everyone tier 7 and below

You could even have the bottom three competitions finals on the same day if you wanted with the one ticket for all three and the money split across all the finalists.

YEP - the Scottish Vase for tiers7 8 & 9 below.

Gives the lowe rpyramid  clubs a chance of Hampden glory .   And some extra cash !

You sort of know you're doing the right thing when the only negativity you've heard is from someone who thinks "nonsense" is two separate words.

Would guess concern for Lok having lights is planning permission with residential flats on 3 sides of the ground, all at a height that could suffer from light pollution.

Oh I know all about that, just the fact that they said "no chance" when there actually is a chance, given clubs in the east have done so with similar constraints. I've previously overlayed Bonnyrigg's lighting design from their planning application onto Newlandsfield and the light spill seemed to be within limits at the residential building.

According to google maps Haddington have a care home building 20m from their spectator railing, which is the same as the closest point of the Newlandsfield flats. Their lighting design says 4 lux at that building, so if they can do it why can't a club like Pollok do it as well?

Number 20 - Cumbernauld United

Cumbernauld United Football Club will be submitting our application on Friday 27th March to join the West of Scotland Football league.

If successful we will form part of the Senior Pyramid System and fulfil what we as a Club voted for two years ago. We believe this is a significant step forward with exciting times ahead for everyone connected with our Club.

This decision has been taken with the clubs best interest at heart and we believe will ensure the club will continue to flourish and enjoy a secure future now and in the years ahead.

These are undoubtedly unprecedented times in everyone’s life. the coronavirus(COVID 19) will impact greatly in the coming months and we are not immune from its effects. It is our intention once we are through this to hold a meeting to inform everyone of our ideas, plans and what we need to inspire us to the forefront of the new league.

In the meantime take care and stay safe.

Who would have thought Cumbernauld could be a town with 3 senior teams in it?

I did edit my initial post to clarify what I was getting at - the groundshare didn't work last time.

It actually did work, when two parties wanted it to. When the leader of one party passed away, it went downhill fast. As did the state of the place.

I think Rob Roy will be the first ever team from East Dunbartonshire to play in a senior league. I think that would leave Argyll & Bute, Na h-Eileanan Siar (Western Isles), Shetland and Orkney as the only ones who have still never had a team in a senior league.

Not really, Craig. Cumbernauld was the eastern part (or parish) of historic East Dunbartonshire for many decades, well over a century at least, before the old counties were reorganised in the seventies.

Clyde FC, a Glasgow club has been based in Cumbernauld since 1994, which is quite befitting considering Cumbernauld is a massive Glasgow overspill. Cumbernauld Colts... and now Cumbernauld United and Kirkintilloch Rob Roy (who are based in Cumbernauld Utd's ground, in the Village) have joined the two existing seniors in the old historic county.

But for some strange reason Cumbernauld new town, and all its Glaswegian residents therein, was detached from its historic roots and put into North Lanarkshire Council along with the old industrial towns of Airdrie and Coatbridge, which apart from consuming large amounts of Buckfast Tonic Wine (the Buckfast Triangle, lol), attending Airdrie Sheriff Court, and Monklands Hospital, it had no real cultural ties or connections... but such is life.

On another note, best of luck to all the clubs applying to the the long awaited West of Scotland Football League. Without any doubts, within a couple of years it will be the best and strongest tier six league in Scotland.

Re: U20s Whittlets we’re keen but next season might be too soon. Kilwinning were interested in a Friday night 21s last year, unsure about this. Similar with Gartcairn.
 

We haven’t put in an application yet. Very keen for it to happen. Still to sit down with important people at the club and discuss. Believe the LL agm needs to change its rules to let wos teams in also.
