Kelty Hearts lowland league quest

Recommended Posts

Next Saturday is the first leg.

That’s good to hear, thought the HL/LL were going to get bumped again by the SPFL. Absolutely no justification for it this season.

That’s nothing Kelty TV has them at home on the 24th and their website fixture list has them away on the 24th confused 🤷‍♂️

Has the Kelty v Brora match been confirmed? I thought there was going to be a meeting on the 19th where a decision was to be made.

The SFA confirmed the dates for Kelty v Brora. Start is next weekend. It's the SPFL meeting on the 19th to confirm their side of things.

Disgrace if they don’t let Kelty / Brora play Brechin just to save Brechin again. They got a get out jail free card last season, no way they should get another. Get this 10th place play off in the bin and just relegate 10th. HL/LL playoff winner goes up, no team finishing bottom shouldn’t be relegated!

Difficult to see any possible justification for cancelling the playoffs this year that could stand up to appeal so odds on it's happening. Last year it was legally impossible to play the games when they needed to be played so the two scenarios are not in any way comparable.

Once the SFA scheduled the dates for the HL/LL Play-off I think it was pretty much a given. As with everything on here people picked through the article on Ken Ferguson stepping down and saw every possible conspiracy in it.

Happy to see the HL/LL Play-off become an automatic promotion spot, mainly so the HL/LL get the extra couple of weeks to schedule their league games.

They do actually. The north region and what remains of the east region are probably going to be HL feeders from next season onwards and a lot of WoS clubs have retained SJFA membership with a view to future SJC participation. How long that will last remains to be seen but the SJFA is almost certainly still going to be around next season.

As has been stated already the ties under SFA control Brora v Kelty have been confirmed BUT the SPFL controlled ties e.g club 42 v HL/LL will be decided at tomorrow’s (Mon 19th) meeting, so it is still very much unknown if it will go ahead until after that meeting.

What way that will go who knows, the SPFL have proved they are a law unto themselves, if it is a no I would imagine they have done their due diligence for any potential legal claims from Brora/Kelty.

According to the Ken Ferguson website story the delay was partly because they had to confirm that 18 games could actually be completed by the middle of this week in time to issue dates for another four after that. There had also been reconstruction plans in the works that might have eliminated the need for the games.

If all they are doing tomorrow as stated in the website story is assessing the eligibility of Kelty and Brora against SPFL membership criteria, it should be a formality and the Club 42 playoff should be announced for May 8th and 15th immediately after Brora vs Kelty games on the 24th and 1st.

I know that, I was engaged in a somewhat childish attempt to wind gaswork up 😀,given his hatred of the pyramid.

Funnily enough I recall Kelty's final fixture in the Juniors back in 2017 wasn't even announced until 10 days before by the East Region.

Hopefully the fact that the SFA have approved the pyramid play-off games means that they are happy with the two tier 5 champions and if the SPFL did cancel the League Two play-off final and it went to the judicial panel, there's a decent chance they'd rule in Brora/Kelty's favour.

Isn't it usually the big team gets to play at home second leg? So at Kelty first game at Brora second game?

No. A draw is made each season for which league will be home in the first leg. They never let us know when that is, the result of it just 'appears' earlier in the season. I've always thought it would be fairer to alternate it - one year have the HFL club home first, next season have the LFL club home first. But nope, it's drawn afresh each year. 

The best place to check for it each season is on the Lowland League's website. Go to the Fixtures & Results tab, then scroll down to the bottom for the "Important Dates In The Lowland League" bit.

That has been saying for a while that this season it's the northerners playing the first leg at Home.

On Kelty's website home page the Next Match feature says the first leg is at Kelty, but if you click on the same site's Results & Fixtures tab, they list the first game as at Brora, with the second one at Kelty.

It has said that since January: https://web.archive.org/web/20210123081732/https://slfl.co.uk/fixtures-results-lowland-league/

And in the early part of 2018/19 it said HL v LL first yet it was the other way around in the actual play-off: https://web.archive.org/web/20181023092805/https://slfl.co.uk/fixtures-results-lowland-league/
