So I presume Kelty and the other Junior refugees give up their share of this when they switch to senior. Mibees Thornton Hibs are hoping to be one of only five Junior clubs left for a big payday

Not too much to presume - will only go to the clubs in membership. If we're taling about £1000 being a big payday, this level of football is screwed. I would imagine it would just be absorbed into the running costs of most clubs, though I do concede for the clubs ran mainly on expenses only basis it will be welcome.

This has been the North Region's plan all along. Sit it out, be the only juniors left. Then pocket 4-5 grand each and join up to the pyramid anyway ūüėĀ

Genius. Cannae wait to see the committee members at Devornside turning up for their Scottish cup debut in solid gold shoes and diamond encrusted club ties.

Sure they could spare some jewels for the gold plated lavvies we've been warned about.

Remember that the four "suggestions" are just that, some ideas to presumably generate discussion and see if there is any common ground to work on further.

It's not a case of pick an option and the most popular one wins,  leagues might like several of them or none at all, and I guess it's open to feeding back to PWG alternative suggestions as well.

It's Banff. Gold plated hole in the ground.

Looking at the 22 East Juniors which are south of the Tay Bridge line.

IF 16  of these were to make the move to the EoS then the East Juniors would be down to 22 existing clubs   (6 plus 16 from north of the Tay Bridge line) plus any potential newcomers. What happens then?

If I recall correctly there was one proposal which created a new Senior league for north of Tay Bridge clubs. This would have to exclude the 6 from south of the line?? as it would be in HL territory.

What happens to those 6 clubs under these circumstances?

If there was to be a new North of Tay Bridge League i.e. Tayside Senior League then those 16 remaining north of the Tay Bridge line  clubs could do very well indeed out of it. Thinking that (Looking at the Non-League Scotland web site information) a number of them are close to Licencing standard already e.g.

 Broughty Athletic, Downfield Juniors, Dundee North End, Kirriemuir Thistle, Arbroath Victoria, Brechin Victoria, Coupar Angus.

They could be guaranteed Scottish FA Cup entry every season plus the annual SFA associate membership fee. Also, those which remain unlicenced would have the chance of Scottish FA Cup entry if they won the league and maybe if there was a Cup for Senior unlicenced clubs as in the south?

Am I right in saying if it went to a vote now regarding the options within junior ranks, the west would outnumber east and north combined? Ie if the juniors are to have a position the west can control the outcome then it goes back to the PWG for discussion and feedback from other parties before a decision is made?

Are you suggesting a second jexit referendum ? :rolleyes:

As I said above, I doubt there's any "voting" to be done in the sense of finding a winner, all that's going to happen is feedback on each of the four suggestions.  I guess pros and cons for each one.  There might even be other suggestions made?  Perhaps if there's positive feedback from all parties on one or two particular suggestions, then Petrie/PWG will take these forward and forget the rest.    That's my take on it anyway.

That said, are the SJFA going to go back with feedback broken down by Region, or will it be one overall   "here's what the majority think/prefer"?

There's not much wiggle room left to get any of this accepted for next season.

Does that answer the post or are you testing our BODMAS knowledge?

answer the post :)

63 West Region clubs compared to 70 clubs in the other regions. 32 in the North and 38 in the East. So the West Region could be outvoted if there was a SJFA wide vote.

If that helps anyone thinking it's a maths quiz.
