Clydebank

Recommended Posts

I see from the Junior Pie and Bovril forum that Clydebank have had a members ballot and propose to return to the senior scene next season. Eos or SOS...do we want them ??

Why wouldn't you want them? They have a decent support and a few will travel. Better income for your clubs.

Think the question from the South should be can we afford them.

I think some of the SoSFL clubs would prefer not have the question asked of them. If every club comes back next year and Wigtown return, the league will be sitting at 16 teams. Clydebank skip the cups like East Kilbride FC were set to do, excess fixtures wouldn't be much of an issue. But it'll just intensify discussion of a West of Scotland which endanger the SoSFL's status and may even see some of its memberships move leagues.

Where does it end?  They'd likely be in it for a year and then be promoted!  There will come a point where a Saints, Threave, Newton or Wigtown are ready to try the step up to the Lowland if they can - this halts their progress.

I think any new club from out with the region should pay a bond to enter which is dispersed to all clubs.

Great news about Clydebank , will raise profile of league and maybe get a few more teams to follow suit , junior game is still a good product imo but it stops teams that want to go as far as they can as no entry to spfl

Given that the SFA are unlikely to create a WOS league, and D&G clubs don’t overly want central belt teams in the SOS league and vice versa, if enough teams from the greater Glasgow area decide to join the SOS league then a possible solution would be to have a D&G league and a Strathclyde league, with the winners playing off to be the overall champion and take the lowland league play off slot. But until there is at least ten teams to fill this league the problem will remain
