Hopefully we get a league structure soon where Talbot will be expected to progress up to a level where they lose more often than they win. Then we'll have a clearer picture of what their support is like when there is a lot less scope for glory hunting. 

Thought you'd be pro Talbot.

Really outstanding performance today by LL & EOSL and indeed non-league in general.

LL sent more clubs (3) from R3 into R4 than Scottish Championship (2) or SPFL2 (2), quite amazing.

Definitely wanted them to beat Arbroath today, but find some of their supporters' attitudes on not wanting a pyramid a bit irritating sometimes.

From speaking to a few Talbot folks recently it's so much anti pyramid as anti double the price to attend every league game in the SFL2. The big Scottish Cup is like cream cakes and a treble up at the bookies to Talbot but what's the big attraction to playing the likes of Edinburgh City every week in the league at £13 a pop. They know the audience in South East Ayrshire. Most Junior clubs would like a shot at the big Scottish Cup but they don't want Cove Rangers on a wet Tuesday in a league game.

Teams currently in the pyramid system aren't paying double the price of Auchinlecks current league price, some in tier 5 Lowland league are cheaper.:)

If Talbot reached the SPFL, then their merit payment would be at least £45k a season, so could offset any loss in numbers through the gate.

Went along to Bayview today great comeback from BSC well done.


Was there a good turn out by BSC supporters? They have been accomplishing a lot and improving every year, I’d hope they are starting to build a solid fan base

Not that much maybe about 30 odd plenty of them in the directors box on top of that. On the park they are a decent side.

I think Stephen swift is the manager, he’s a good non league manager. He will do well by them. Hope to see them grow in the future

First time 3 LL clubs have reached R4.

Indeed never before has more than 1... Spartans in 2014-15; EK in 2015-16 & 2018-19.


Previous best showing of the southern pyramid was 2... EK+LTHV in 2015-16.

This season 4 ... Bonnyrigg+BSCG+EK+Broxburn.
