This is very much a side-issue, but thought I'd spread the word.

Branding/logos for the new West of Scotland League will go live on the new twitter account (@OfficialWoSFL) at 7:30pm tonight.

Was searching the lion hoping you'd incorporated the west of scotland outline from your previous logo :P

Also it's "Shetland", not "the Shetlands".

...and anyone who calls a scone a bannock, regularly wears a Fair Isle ganzie and a tourie and habitually uses du kaens as a verbal full stop is liable to get quite violent over this. Orkney can play in the NCL at the moment because the ferry crossing from Caithness isn't that drastic, but I'd question whether even that would last if the NCL started playing a normal 30+ game season as they might be expected to as a tier 6 feeder.

Your bullshit that these peolle would relish mainland/winter leagues.

Do you even know there is no such football club as Lewis & Harris FC ?

I'm not a spokesman but I have spoken to spokespeople at Carloway and Ness who both state there is no interest and no feasability for them playing in either mainland or winter leagues.

It's not just about money. Many players are off island in the winter and players can't afford a fortnightly 24 hours off crofts and boats.

Lewis & Harris does exist, although I accept that it is currently a 'quasi' representative (winter) football team, which has performed well in some of the NCL cup competitions during the last 5 or 6 seasons. 

If you are saying that none of its players (presumably including yourself ?) would want to participate in highland football , even if there was sufficient sponsorship to provide air travel, (rather than relying on the ferry) then I stand corrected........with apologies.   

Are you speaking for Shetland FC as well ?

What cup competitions will the future WoSL clubs be involved in?

  • SFA Scottish Cup for those SFA members or Qualifiers
  • South Region Challenge Cup
  • WoSFL Cup of some sort for all members
  • SJFA Scottish Cup for those members of the SJFA

Beyond that I don't think anything has been decided.

The SFA South Region Challenge Cup and possibly a West of Scotland League Cup.

If they want to they can enter the Scottish Junior Cup as well, but that's optional.

Closer to beginning than begging though.

Plenty would want to. I have already explained why it's more than a money issue.

Presumably you are talking about chartering flights too given that the Saturday flight from Stornoway to Inverness lands at 1230 and doesn't return until 1630 on The Sabbath.

That guy's whole twitter page is pretty minterific upon inspection.

What are the chances the remaining 4 sides make announcements tonight? If they have applied even then they're not particularly active on social media.

They're still at it. Well, I must assume so as they've locked their account after two bad polls for them...

So is it still called The Excelsior or The Penny Cars  Stadium.

Bit confusing depending where you look

The grounds official name is Excelsior Stadium. Penny Cars is the sponsorship name and it generally know as new broomfield amongst fan's

I notice the only crowds above a 100 come in that South Challenge Cup come from ex Junior teams. The West Region teams arriving must be a massive bonus.

Haha. I can't take any credit for the graphics, they are the creation of Michael Park. He's done a cracking job.

The problem is, as has been very well put by Cyclizine, you would appear to pass your own opinion off as established fact in many of your posts. Currently it is you that purport to be speaking for others - “Both the Western Isles and the Shetlands would relish the idea of playing in the North Caley League” - not anyone else. The way you word this absolutely rings as if you are speaking on their behalf. If that wasn’t your intention then, as has also been said, you really need to change your writing style.

There really is no need to highlight in bold and in italics so much of what you write either, it makes you seem like you feel we’re not smart enough to understand your point if you don’t - but maybe that’s just me.
