Anyone other than St Andrews United on the cards this year?

Edinburgh South, Bo'ness Athletic, and Syngenta seem like a few that might fly under the radar with their small supports. All groundsharing at grounds of other licenced clubs. Syngenta seem to have some of the telltale policy guidance on their website, Bo'ness Athletic have the links set up but nothing there.

Bo'ness Athletic hire the park exactly the same as Bo'ness Utd.

The latter given preference on hire due to higher tier.

Culter or Bridge of Don appear to be progressive clubs. Assuming Banks O'Dee win promotion this season, there needs to be some licensed clubs for 2023/24 ?

News of licences being granted to Rutherglen Glencairn (West) and to Tayport (Mids).

I hope we hear from St Andrews United too before long. Fingers crossed!

Benburb and Kilwinning have also tweeted that their applications have been granted.

As it's that time of year for some surprises. Legacy level as part of the SFA's Quality Mark scheme. Groundsharing at Ochilview.

 

They're either playing Fridays or Sundays as Queens Park are having to use Ochilview?

Not necessarily. Edinburgh City got lumped with Fridays when leaving and coming back to Ainslie Park.

Syngenta confirmed.

 

So if they fall out with stenny and get kicked out do they lose there license 

don’t really agree with ground sharing to get your licence 

however Edinburgh south should just go for it with Dalkeith

Clyde just fell out with the local council and are moving to Hamilton.

BSC Glasgow fell out with Maryhill and moved to Alloa.

I'm sure there are others that may have occurred during the licencing era. As always there's more to licencing than just the ground criteria.

If the likes of Edinburgh South and Bo'ness Athletic can tick all the licencing boxes they should give it a go.

If a club has their own ground, can they groundshare for a season with a club that has the requirements for licencing, then move back to their own ground after they get a licence? Probably cheaper than having to install floodlights.

No I get all that it just doesn’t sit right with me that instead of investing in your own facilities you just go to the nearest ground that does have the criteria and ask to share

ground criteria can cost a club 50 to 70k or more and is the biggest expense for the licence 

and it seems to be new clubs like BSC sygenta inverkeithing just finding anywhere that meets the criteria to go and play

if I was Edinburgh south I would be staying put in Dalkeith

No. A licence is reviewed annually. It's not just a case of having it in perpetuity. It's why eyebrows were raised over Fort William this season.

A club could certainly groundshare at a park that meets licencing standards while they get their own ground up to standard. That's basically what Caledonian Braves did to get licenced.
