So why have it??????
The sjfa don't even know their own rules ffs. Or could it be that they had to let them use it as the would have lost a team in the league if they didn't. As no doubt rossvale would have lost the tenure to use peterhill.

A set of rules that bear no relation to the real world...hardly unique in life, or mine at least. From a paying guest's perspective, I'm happy with a full size pitch and evidence that efforts are made to maintain the pitch. Clubs can charge an extra £1 if they provide cover. OK, I'll let the farts in suits have their line about goals being the right size too, Beyond this, I'm happy to enjoy the rough with the smooth and the fact that grounds are different don't all come from a lego set. Of course, if you prefer, subscribe to the ground criteria blueprint and watch the three teams that meet them play each other twelve times a season for the right to be champions of nothing.

30.9.17

Lesmahagow 5v1 Yoker, Gregor Cree put Yoker 1 up after 21m, Lesmahagow replied with Michael Brunton scoring on 38m to make it 1v1 then Stevie Higgins got a hat-trick scoring in 54,78,84m with Jordan Whitefield scoring in 87m. Yoker had a penalty saved in the 28th minute. Highlights to follow.

That's Benburb crossed the quarter way line in league games.

6 wins out of 7, 18 points out of a possible 21.

Up to the rest to chase after them although everybody else seems to have games in hand. Now nearly in October and Glasgow Perthshire with only three league games played since August. Can see the Shire playing 4 games a week come next May.

Yoker could have been 4 or 5 up at ht had they taken their chances yet capitulated at the back 2nd half not acceptable

Another win for league leaders Benburb at home, 3-2. St Roch's still hanging in there with the top teams in the league with a 4-0 win away at Greenock. Trick is to get as many points in the bag before winter sets in.

Ding and indeed Dong old bean.

Chickens still not being counted, teams below have games in hand and can equal the Bens current points total. Its a great start to the season, just need to keep the momentum going so that Benburb have a chance of getting into the new 2nd Division/Premier/Level 2/whatever its called for next season when it comes down to the business end of the season.

Not on yesterday's game they won't



Totally shocked at that result last week to be honest, as a follower of cambuslang and being fortunate enough to win that league last season I thought yoker would have a similar powerful side to win that league but proving to be tough.
Benburb have went from a mid table side to champion form with the same side so it is interesting to say the least !
