How much of a "cut" did the SJFA take from this game Burnieman ?

I believe it's 10%, or certainly used to be.

Thank you.

Don't know if that still applies to the early rounds nowadays, though.

If it does, I'm sure they'll have been pleased to receive your contribution to the funds.

You'll be pleased to know that the SJFA no longer takes a cut prior to the semis (where they take 20% but guarantee £5,000 to each club and then £12,000 to the finalists). They've also reduced the distance required - from 201 to 101 miles - for the SJFA to provide 50% more of the travel guarantee.

Interesting, someone had better tell the Hoose tannoy man then because he announced the figure "after the SJFA percentage" or words to that effect. Hope he didn't send payment.......

Just to confirm Burnieman that there was no 10% deduction payment made to the SJFA yesterday, there used to be in past years but in the early rounds now clubs just split the gate once the officials are paid. Thanks for coming up to yesterdays game and hope to see you back at Park View soon.

I've been to Lochee United 3-3 Kirrie Thistle today. Awful defending performances from both sides, arguably all 6 goals were the result of defensive errors, although that will have made the game entertaining for neutrals. Especially just before half-time it was crazy, 0-1 in the 42nd minute, 2-2 at HT. Lochee should've won in my opinion, missed some good chances, but paid the price for some individual errors. Bad day at the office really...

Not much activity in here, so let's get this thread active again. Lochee United v Broughty is off due to Broughty's game at Darvel. We'll have a home friendly v Lochee Harp, the first game in over a month. That also means that after today we'll be 4 games behind Carnoustie, who play Scone away and currently have an 11 point lead. That's going to be tough to catch up with, although we're in good form.

On the subject of Lochee Harp, I notice they posted up on twitter a few days ago, a brief clip of their new ground.   3g now complete, fencing up, looks to be just the buildings to follow.

Noticed Coupar Angus have had a turn around in fortunes from the past few seasons. Nothing earth shattering but currently on 15 points. Small steps in right direction.

Yes, it's definitely starting to look good. It will be good for them to finally play at a ground of themselves again.

This time last year I watched them at home to Luncarty. They lost 0-14 with Luncarty not even trying that much after the first 20 minutes (when they were already 5-0 up). Coupar Angus looked absolutely awful. Nothing spectacular this season indeed, but they when I watched them again early this season they looked much better.

Thornton up to fourth with games in hand.:)

They are looking most likely at the moment. Livingston too inconsistent and and have played too many games. Likewise Whitburn. Pumpherston in my opinion are in a false position from the games I've seen them in. Fauldhouse are in meltdown at the moment and could fall away. Armadale could be the surprise team.

Much more competitive that the East of Scotland leagues!

They have the likes of Leiper and Sloan playing for them and Scott Dalziel still banging in the goals.

I think it was Jock Stein:unsure2: that once said something along the lines of "you could have eight grannies in a 100m race, that would be competitive but its not sport. "

Scone v Carnoustie has been abandoned. Hopefully the guy will be ok...

Was at Coupar Angus v Brechin Vics on Saturday. Had to leave early (was 3-2 to Brechin at the time), but they got a 4-4 draw.

They looked competitive and there was little between the sides. CA were two down but brought it back to two apiece, before losing a goal again just before half time. I believe they then got themselves 4-3 ahead before losing a late goal.

Nice quirky little ground they have too

I think he actually said "You could have a group of 70 year-old men running round a track, and it could be competitive.  But it did not mean the quality was high." 

It was in response to someone's assertion that the English First Division (as was) is "the most competitive league in the world".  A wise man was Mr S.   

I sort of met him once.  Myself and some friends were in the queue outside Falkirk Ice Rink where the first Tennents Soccer Sixes were being held in 1984.  Jock. with a couple of other important-looking guys wandered straight to the head of the queue and right in.  As he passed us, I put my hand out to shake his, and he utterly ignored me. 

Can't say I blame him.
