That's what i was thinking but with the pyramid now in place these clubs would need to move again as the UoHi and Canal Park won't be/aren't enclosed and can't really accommodate fans.  Canal Park can but it's see through fencing round it so no one will pay to get in and just stand at the fence and watch the game.

That's a no to licensing right there surely?

2m boundary ‘wall’ needed. (You can attach screening to fencing if you want, or grow a hedge I guess.

Yep, so both of these grounds (when the UoHI one is built) would need that for the tenants to progress, or they'd need to go elsewhere.

Yes,  but tbf that’s kinda the point of club licensing and the pyramid.   Gradual progression as you move through the leagues.

Absolutely !

Coldstream worked closely with the local council, which is something that Invergordan, and other clubs can/should do. Having been to Home Park on match days, I can't see why a similar arrangement couldn't apply  to several other clubs at this level.

It is a pity that NCL club Bunillidh Thistle are in abeyance for 2021/22.  Is this because the damage to their changing facilities has not yet been repaired ?

There's no way they'll be able to play at Canal Park long-term. They've got away with it this season because of Covid and the rugby cancelling their season. More likely they'll move to the IRA now Athletic have moved out of the city again.

There's a lack of other potential options in Inverness, realistically. The funding for updated facilities at the Bught will focus on the stadium pitch (shinty) and the amateur pitches. The council won't spend money on football grounds (a topic that's been covered here multiple times).

I know these pyramid debates can get a bit heated, but I don't think things are that bad.

It's only a Provisional move

You underestimate the wrath of local area dog walkers.

The dog walkers are barking up the wrong tree !

Also congratulations to Golspie Sutherland who are the NCL champions for 2020/21, as Thurso defeated Invergordon today.

I could see them carrying on at Canal Park for a while with Friday night fixtures when there's a Rugby game on the Saturday.

Official would be best, where the club would hold endless seminars on Marxist-Leninist dialectics without actually playing any football.

Sorry just reading this.  I take it then that everything has now been agreed for the Pyramid to be set up, including the Midlands League.  Can someone confirm the clubs that will play in each of the three HL tier 6 leagues?

Still needs to be ratified by SFA, but the noises are all positive. The clubs will simply be those currently in membership of the North Caledonian League, the North Juniors and the remaining East Juniors. The North Juniors may rename themselves (Grampian League?) and the rump East Juniors will become the Midland League.

Thank you, when does ratification take place?

I believe the SFA AGM is on Monday, where the assumption is this will be ratified. Obviously, this is all just hearsay at the moment, but the guys up here seem to think it's pretty much sorted.

Are these different guys from the ones Jason Leitch references?

Over here from multiple sides I also hear it's all sorted. Apparently Monday is just going to be a rubber stamp and then it's official.

So where is the official announcement of the northern pyramid at tier 6 for 2021/22, twenty four hours after the SFA's AGM  ?

I think they're waiting for the AGM of the East Region to make it official.
