Wonder what happens to Stirling University EOS team if Stirling University LL side are relegated? 

Surely their reserve side would have to either drop down a tier or out of the EOSL all together both couldn't play in the same division.

With more tiers on the way it becomes easier, they just relegate Stirling University EOS to the league below.

Can you have both a first team and a reserve team in the EoS at the same time though? I suspect not as in the past the reserve team angle was always for the likes of Hibs and Berwick Rangers.

You have many 2nd teams playing in leagues all over Europe.

Stirling Uni EOS would cease to exist.

With the creation of tiers, is there something in the rules that prevents 2 teams from the same club participating in the EoSFL?

.........or (just for the sake of mischief making) if Stirling University LL finished bottom and Stirling University EOS finished as play off champions, would that mean NO relegation!? :1eye

Stirling University EOS could not participate in a playoff.


October is upon us so time for an update.

Whitehill find themself somewhat detached afoot LL although it's fairly tight above that and some unexpected clubs feature like 'Shire, Gretna and Stirling Uni.

Tight, and no real shocks in EOSL - arguably LTHV's dire start (they sit 10th) most notable.

Still a surprise bag topping SOSL.

Presumably Stranraer reserves can't be promoted either?

Apparently EOSL rules don't allow clubs to enter more than 1 team, so you couldn't have University of Stirling in 'EOSL Premier' and Stirling Uni EOS in 'EOSL First Division South'/similar.

Maybe i'm misremembering with the other leagues  but when the EOSL updated their policies page, they removed the text relating to membership and promotion.

Not knowing what the rules look like there could be a loophole where you can only nominate one "representative" in a competition which could leave an entry point for teams in different divisions. It's something that I imagine will be formally addressed when the EOSL splits into divisions again.

You would think that, if Stirling University LL team were relegated to the EOS Premier division, then their reserve side could play in a lower division. After all, there were proposals to play Old Firm colts teams in League Two, which, obviously, is in a lower division of the same league.

If Stranraer finish first and a licensed team finished second would they let the licensed team enter the playoffs or would no team enter?

Second place teams or next best finish with a licence can't be promoted. The playoff route is only for the EoS and SoS Champions. If the SoS Champion is unlicenced and the EoS Champion is licenced, then the EoS Champion will be promoted without the need for a playoff.

Which is what happened when Edusport got promoted to the Lowland League. There was no licenced EoS Champion, so Edusport were promoted unopposed.

I think you meant licensed rather than your first unlicensed and SoS rather than your third EoS?

Could Stranraer or Stirling Uni EOS change their administrative structure and/or name and be eligible? I'm thinking something like a separate holding company which manages player registration, separate finances, hire stadium from the first team?

If they were two distinct clubs, managed completely differently with no explicit connections between the two, then I don't see why not. Rangers and Hearts have been allowed to do it for years.
