He didn't say that to be fair. He asked how they represent their community in a way that clubs currently in the HL/LL don't.

A fair number in the LL don't represent a community.

What community do Queens Park represent out of interest?

Hey! Caledonian Braves do represent a community... that community being young French footballers looking to gain an education in Scotland

I think that is now separate. The Caledonian Braves team is almost entirely Scottish players. I think Edusport still exist as the academy for mainly French players, but not directly connected to Caledonian Braves.

The academy players compete under both names as theres Caledonian Braves reserves in the South Of Scotland League. Also an Edusport Academy in the British Uni & Colleges Sports league (BUCS). No idea as to how much crossover there is in regards to players in each squad.

Advantage Kelty in the Lowland League with today's result. Was a must win for them and they did the business. Bonnyrigg need to keep the challenge going until they meet again near the end of the season. That one could well be the title decider.

In fairness to Brora Rangers and the stick they get for having players on stag dos and not wanting to win the play-off, they still nearly won promotion.

Got to the Play-off Final v. Montrose. Won the 1st leg at home 1-0. Went into the second half of the 2nd leg 1-0 down, 1-1 on aggregate. Then scored in the 47th minute to take the lead on aggregate again. 

If they hadn't gone down to ten men minutes later they might have pulled it off. But then maybe that was part of their masterplan not to get promoted.

The chat of "community" from clubs which have 150-200 home fans and bus in a load of ringers from Glasgow/Edinburgh every second week is birthday card pish.

At the very least you could try and use your own pish patter to go fishing  ya trumpet.

The difference with these clubs ( Elgin, Annan & Peterhead) is they didn’t come into the league with a sugar daddy economy.

peterhead did and still do

That fair number being 1.
SPFL diddies are rattled beyond belief that their days of freeloading round the league system are coming to an end.
The Braves, BSC (cue Jerry to launch into one), Civil Service and the two uni teams probably don't represent a community. Are any of the Uni first team players students? Spartans? The LL was thrown together hurriedly but will morph into a decent division in time. Teams, SPFL current members included, will find their level.

I'm unashamedly old fashioned in this. I just feel that I should chip in to the non-league lovefest occasionally. Some of the derogatory comments about established clubs are unfortunate.

Thoroughly deserved if your post is representative of those that follow "established" (Christ what does that even mean in this context?) clubs.

Of course those clubs you whined about represent communities - Braves are the one that don't in the LL, its laughable and pitiful to actually suggest that BSC or Stirling Uni don't represent a community.

The very fact that you have a question mark at Spartans shows how clueless you are, probably think Civil Service are basically a works team. :lol: Edinburgh and Stirling Uni FC represent the community of their respective Unis. Caledonia Braves with the move to their new ground are trying to build something there, nobody says its going to be easy but they are trying.

Cowdenbeath are the SPFL team closest to where I stay , they represent the community of the town of Cowdenbeath (population of 14,000) I suppose. The fact that their last six league attendances have been 307,312,312, 382, 328 suggests that overwhelming majority of that community don't give a flying **** about that football team.

Albion Rovers representing the community of Coatbridge ? They are struggling to get 300 to go to their games despite the town having a population of over 40,000

Are you intentionally keeping us in suspense regarding the sixth attendance figure or are you going by Cowdenbeath counting?
