Exciting times. I must say im glad a compromise was reached ... retaining the Junior Cup a small price to pay for breaking the logjam. Indeed its nice that some history is being retained.

It's two more amateur sides, yup. Won't say who as it's their place to announce should they wish.

We'll see if they meet the requirements for approval...

Just a complete poke in the dark. Maybe Strathaven Dynamo?

Building a new ground in collaboration with the rugby club.

Just seen FairWeatherFan beat me to it.

All of which sort of makes me wonder "Why all the secrecy?"  The EoSL applications were made over a week ago, and all the WoSL ones are in.  What is there to be gained by either organisation playing Secrets?   Just publish the names, then move on to the next stage.

Probably to save any embarrasment to any applicants who are not accepted. Or indeed to avoid identifying any of the 63 who haven't applied.

they have all applied. Social distancing is all well and good but playing with yourself for ever?

Might of named them first, but no real thought into it like you did. Looking at the Quality Mark scheme, especially the higher tiers tends to find familiar names that have entered senior age sides over the years.

Ok. I understand that nothing could be completely sorted until after the deadline but surely the structure was rubber stamped.
Also, the idea of getting clubs together to decide what the set up should be (as suggested by Marten) gives me the fear.
The idea of a collective agreed approach from all clubs, rather than a decision taken by 1 or a few power hungry men probably gives a lot of junior folks the fear.

Welcome to the 21st Century

For those who also want to see amateur leagues slotting into the Pyramid, the SFA quality mark scheme is starting to look like a ready made pathway process to bridge the amateur game into the senior game. So a good shout looking there for possible names.

The only obvious outlier in that map is Nithsdale Wanderers not being in the WoS.

Geographically closer to some Ayrhshire teams, but still in D&G and nowhere near Yoker, Clydebank, Vale of Leven etc etc.
