Walking down the Beechwood Road

Recommended Posts

Talbot jumped another place , just keep winning and slowly come up the table , good to have another league game next. Thought our strikers and subs were superb today again seemed to knock the stuffing out of Kilbirnie when they came on

Auchinleck are too good for this level and will win the Scottish Cup and the League for along as they want to. 

They should challenge themselves at the highest level possible. I understand that supporters don't want to travel but they must be getting bored winning everything. 

After their feats in the the senior and junior Scottish Cups over the years they have the financial muscle to lord it over the Juniors as long as they like, time for another level.

I will try and make a case for staying at this level 

1- employers might not give players the required time off to go to say peterhead, Elgin, or some other far away places in midweek. 

2- players have trained and gained qualifications for their chosen employment while enjoying a decent level of football. 

3- fans might not want to pay £15 per game every week to watch their game

fb4 you have it in a nutshell.

We also have the West of Scotland Cup and the Scottish Junior Cup to compete in, rather than those in the EOSL who have some cup that nobody's ever heard of, nor wants to travel to watch. Yes, I know they're getting money every year from the SFA, but it doesn't mean they play at a better grade or watch better games. Quite the opposite I reckon.

There's lots of things to consider not just the travelling

Clubs can charge whatever they want in the SPFL there is no minimum price set, so if Auchinleck wanted to keep prices the same for   or a slight increase of £1-2 then nobody can stop them. Even at Lowland league tier five 14/16 clubs charge between £5-£7 the exceptions being East Stirling £8 and the money grabbing barstewards at Berwick £10.

I honestly don't think those leagues lowland etc are any better than our junior premier and not got the same local rivalries, we can't get away from the fact that Talbot might not have a choice in the matter in the future

Minimum of £12 per adult in SPFL Division 2, and only four teams charge that all the rest are over and above that. Brechin and Queen's Park charge £15 minimum.

No reference to £12.00. Clubs can charge what they want for league matches. Just because other clubs charge a certain price, doesn't mean you have to.

1. That is why you have a squad.  Midweek trips to Elgin are very much the exception, not the rule (and you'll need to get to SPFL2 first)

2.  That also happens in the SPFL.

3. Clubs can charge whatever they like for league matches in the LL and SPFL.  So if Talbot want to charge £7, they can.

IIRC minimum pricing of £12 only applies to play off matches and the League Cup.

If Cove Rangers can go from the Highland League straight into league 2 after a playoff then it should be the same for the Junior Premier League, just my opinion.

That ship has long since sailed, sometime around 2013.
