Why dont they just use the existing/developing  Pyramid for teams to enter and not invite applications?

I suspect that in the end vote wise that’s pretty much what will happen.

I might have picked this up wrong from a recent EOS meeting - but Whitehill are effectively safe from relegation as Selkirk are considered to be the bottom club.

There is still a scenario where Whitehill could get relegated, however, and that is where say Albion Rover played Cove Rangers in the Playoff - and Cove won. Albion Rovers would be relegated to LL and Whitehill to EOS.  In the event that none of the playoff winners from EOS were licensed then applications would be needed to fill the space.  Hence the advert now.

I think.

That may well be the case. The Lowland League still need applications in case there is no licensed Tier 6 champion or if the SPFL Playoff involves a second relegation.

At this particular moment in time the only club with a license before March 31st that is contending for a Tier 6 championship is Linlithgow Rose.

So starting to ask for applications now will save them scrambling around in May.

Clearly you couldn't wait until all scenarios were clear as that may not be until Saturday 18th May when the playoff final 2nd legs happen. Not enough time to organise an application process.


An argument could be made that gaps should be filled with the next highest placed licensed club rather than by application.

However you've got 2 immediate problems: what if the next 2 both finished (say) 3rd in EOSL & SOSL respectively - or even if its clear-cut, what if they objected to being unexpectedly promoted from mid-table?

From what I heard this afternoon - SFA wouldn't endorse such a rule change at this stage of the season, as it would materially effect what people thought they were playing for.

As outlined it may be academic, but as you were afoot LL, or alternatively:

The Sunday Mail last week reported that Vale of Leithen were just happy that their LL status was secure for another year.

Does this mean that 14th is now definitely safe? What if Cove went up and Albion went down?

Apologies, I’m not quite up to speed, I thought 14th as things stood could still go down? 

Ps - I fully accept that Dalbeattie are almost certain to finish below VOL but just for sake of absolutely certainty re relegation spots I wanted to know the definitive position.

VOL could technically still finish 15th/bottom so I wouldn't read too much into that report, though a win at the weekend would mean they are safe from automatic relegation/15th.

Excellent point, hadn’t even considered that VOL could actually still finish bottom (15th)
