Fauldhouse utd 19/20

Recommended Posts

You would think after beating Kilwinning Rangers and Ardrossan Winton Rovers they would have been content with their Junior Cup progress this season, even if they had a few players unavailable due to stag do and went out to Fauldhouse United. Would have been no disgrace at all. The weather forecast looks freezing come this weekend so could genuinely be off and tie not played until later in December now that means Fauldhouse fall behind in league games played.

Any idea of the outcome yet?

Fauldhouse Utd Official FB Page

After the meeting tonight and all the evidence we have provided we have been told we are going to bridge of don this week in the cup this is an absolutely shambolic decision in the clubs opinion we provided enough evidence to prove our case was correct

Can everyone share this get this injustice out there

Unfortunately this sums up Junior football at the moment, or should I say the people running it.

Meanwhile, elsewhere in West Lothian, you'll remember just  a couple of seasons ago Fauldhouse Utd competing against these teams instead of clubs contriving a postponement for "fox holes"

Broxburn Athletic through the Scottish Cup 4th Round and a visit to Premier Division St Mirren
Linlithgow Rose featured on Friday night football in a full house against Falkirk
Blackburn Utd holding their own in a high quality and very competitive Premier Division

It does stink but just go up there and win the game now, try keep your composure and not let events turn it into a farce, the motivatuon is there. Just hope you dont get the same ref we got up there otherwise he ll do his best to get another north team through, his words not ours.

Or just refuse to go, withdraw from the tournament and join the EoSFL.

In all seriousness it would be interesting to hear the argument put forward by BoD.

Congratulations to the SJFA!

Another one of your fair and honest representatives wonderfully screwed over by your absolute incompetence.

Not going to be happy until we all leave and you are left with nothing in the East

Totally agree! Win or lose, it doesn’t mean f**k all. The integrity of the competition is gone and I really couldn’t care less about winning anything whilst representing that shower. Embarrassing to be a representative of their association

Think it's obvious that the SJFA are never going to change, whether you want to play in an organisation like this long term is up to you...

They didn't think anyone would check. It's that simple.
Fauldhouse, you are now playing in an amateur set up and there is an opportunity to get out and join a set up that wont treat you like a pub team.

That's the bit that really intrigues me. Why would a referee put their reputation on the line for something which appears to be fabricated. If there are no fox holes and the referee has called it off then his position as a referee is in serious doubt. If there is no referee and it was just used as an alibi iike a Woking Pizza Express then that also needs to be dealt with very severely. In either case a serious precedent has to be established and a ban from the Cup this year and possibly into future years too.

A simple case of backing their ref, they don't want to lose the integrity of the officials, if use had won then it shows that the refereeing standards are corrupt, they can't be seen to be doing that, even though deep down its the wrong decision it safes face for the referees association, its a farsical decision, go up there and pump them, you'll probably arrive to be told its off due to frost

No surprise in this decision sums up the sjfa I'm sure most club's will be hoping faulhouse go and beat that mob but it doesn't make things right all I can say to the rest of you guys in the east you can bring this association to an end and all of you move over to the eosl .

Fauldhouse, Bathgate and Whitburn are all equipped to make the step UP to EOS but Bathgate and Whitburn dont have the balls for it.
I've seen enough east Region and EOS games to see the gap is widening.
West Region is a different ball game.
Why get left out?

That depends on what has actually happened - if the referee inspects the pitch and finds a problem, but it can be fixed before kick-off then surely it puts the onus on the home club to effect repairs to try and get the match on? In that situation you can simultaneously back the ref and sanction the home club if they don't bother trying to fix things.

Baghdad bob-esque behaviour from our esteemed friend with the forum. How anyone can defend the sjfa on this is beyond me.

To no one's surprise, the massive twat has gone private.
