Juniors to East Seniors to Lowland League - what's the difference?

Recommended Posts

There's plenty of SPFL grounds where I've never seen segregation or separate catering facilities. None of the four SPFL Angus clubs have ever had these when I've been there for example.

There are segregation fences on the seaside terracing, and behind the main stand that get used when required. Catering facilities on both sides of the fences, again used when required.

Yeah. Sounds like the capability to segregate is required but segregation in place at every game obviously isn't a requirement.

Separate Male and female toilet facilities.

disabled access to all areas of the ground.

Some form of shelter from the elements.

Appropriate parking facilities.

Hot drinks and food served.

Nothing overly strenuous and things that every ground I think I have been to for a considerable number of years have had.

There will be varying levels of fancy but a flushing, clean toilet and a wee wooden structure to stand under with my pie and tea would do me.

Everything else over an above is licence level stuff and should only really include those clubs looking to get to tier 5.

 I don't believe separate male and female toilets are required.  A Unisex toilet is fine, providing it has two or more cubicles?

I think every club will try to improve its facilities, within their means. At least clubs can stay at a level without getting licensed ( am I right ? )  Far different down south where fairly strict guidelines start from County  League , step 7 upwards. My opinion is that many of the requirements are overly petty for clubs that will never need them.  One of the main stumbling blocks in England is the issue of floodlights, so many  people against them (nimby's) Good to see so many clubs working really hard in Scotland, they deserve some help from the authorities.

I assume this has changed now, but I once read that every team above a certain level in England needed to have a match programme - meaning some clubs would produce a shell with opposition-relevant changes for each match. Unless I’m wrong?

(Tbh, I can’t imagine our programme this season will be the all singing all dancing one I’ve done before... I’ve a wee bit too much on).

Some leagues require them more in order that  the league sponsors get exposure - some even insist on league sponsors ads to be in colour - which leads to the nonsense of clubs producing runs of like three copies - one for the away team, one for the ref and one for sending into the league! The EFL have decreed they're not compulsory now.

Up to this season the clubs at step 7 county lge had to produce a programme, being part of the national pyramid, however covid19 has seen a relaxation of the rules - many now doing online issues only. Sensible when you don't sell all that you print, leaving piles of progs unsold. Quite content if a teamsheet appears, but I'm not fussy.
