Brought forward?

I'm not sure, I heard it was tonight through a friend of a friend.

The information may not be accurate.

Would there be any benefits in the EOSFL (or WRJFA) organising an End of season Invitation Cup competition for those clubs that complete their season early - say by mid April?

  1. The competition could be run on a group / knock-out basis in late April and May.
  2. Invitations could be extended to interested clubs in the WRJFA, ERJFA and SOSFL clubs to compete in the competition.
  3. This may help facilitate further integration and harmony within a growing Pyramid family.
  4. It would give WRJFA clubs like Clydebank some very interesting end of season fixtures and a much needed revenue top-up.

It's supposed to be the 11th, that's what the EoS clubs were advised, unless it has since changed.

Not thinking purely EOSFL.  If clubs like Clydebank are able complete their fixtures in Mid-March there would be a lot to be gained in an extra end of season competition being arranged.  Next season it could be Blackburn United that completes their fixtures early.

I'd have no interest in an end of season cup to pad out fixtures frankly.  Why would the EoS organise something to help a west club with fixtures? bizarre.

Because it helps further integration. i cannot recall any objection to Clydebank's desire to join the EOSFL a year or so ago.

With the season starting in July in the eosfl the end of the season is timed just right. It gives players a chance at proper recovery and clubs an ability to do work around their ground. I'm sure most clubs in the eosfl would have no interest in this, the west juniors will still be playing until July most likely.

I get why your saying this and its a kl idea but personally I do not think so.
Most junior clubs, if I remember correctly are usually playing right to the end of the season, especially in the top division so most likely, well in the WOS leagues are teams from the bottom divisions who possibly finish early.

this type of thing only really works with youth football leagues where a lot of teams finish early, again, usually at the lower level of the league and therefor these teams with month(s) to spare, the league arrange a cup to play in or sometimes a divisional cup.   

 

I genuinely don't see any benefit in this. if it was trying to spark interest either junior teams or EOS teams could arrange friendlies with teams who were available

I'd rather see the Junior & South Challenge Cup merged to facilitate the west juniors playing LL/EOS et al teams

Pity the WJFA can't think of something similar for Cumnock Juniors, their season's always over by October.

Think Cumnock asked not to be included because the under 10s rugby team has booked the park.

I expect if/when the West enters the pyramid they will be invited to enter the South Challenge Cup.  The LL, EoS and SoS run the comp between them.

Where this leaves the Junior Cup who knows, I can't see there being any room for it, and definitely not in it's current format. Unless the West continue to enter instead of the SCC.

I doubt they'd accept the invite right now due to the conflict with the Junior Cup.

The Junior Cup is an emaciated skeleton. A kindness would be a bolt to the head.

An SCC plus the West juniors would have over 128 teams in it. So the same number of rounds as the Junior Cup.

The Junior Cup has a sponsor, prize money when you get to the semis and has greater recognition because of its history.
