West Development U20 League / Teams

Recommended Posts

I don't see there is any confusion

The development squad is operated by the first team, and if the first team are having problems then they can fold the development squad so I'm sure before the first team applied to add a development squad to the Lowland league then the park would already be arranged.

The original question was about them using Dam Park on a Friday, when the first team may be at home the following day. The pitch can be rather heavy to say the least. The Facebook post announcing the application to join the u20 league states "with the club looking to secure Dam Park as the venue for its home matches".

totally agree and understand, that's one of the problems that has to be addressed, its the same for most first teams who have a grass pitch with floodlights, do they allow the development team to use the pith the night before if its been raining or raining

The club will also need to secure the booking with South Ayrshire Council. Unlikely to be an issue outwith the athletics season, but I don't know whether Ayr Seaforth use the stadium on a Friday at any time.

I imagine  there will be a certain level of co-ordination. Even if it's simply waiting until the first teams of the Lowland area leagues have produced their fixture lists. Which will allow the fixture secretary for the development league to work around those dates.

kl, we've all done it now and then

I get your views and understand them but that post threw me as I couldn't fathom what connection to Lowland Development league it had.
The only thing is that the development secretary who is dealing with the fixture dates wont really make a difference to him/her as games for the seniors and U20s are on different days.
I do suspect however come near the end of season when possible midweek games then this will make a difference and the development secretary will have to check the fixture lists of the seniors.

Anyways I heard theres a  zoom meeting on Thursday for the Development league with the clubs who have applied so far, on the day of the final date of applications to join.

Have to admit Pyramidic, The Forth Wanderers one was pulled out of the bag and not heard a peep that they would be starting a team, well done them
Application Deadline Day is close by, 15th June, (thanks Burnieman)

To be honest when I first listed the teams I was thinking if they get to maybe 5 or 6 teams from the West with the current 5 west teams then maybe they could make up a regional West and then an East regionalised and that would be great but in all honestly to get 24 teams officially state they are applying to join the Lowland U20 League with their U20 team is absolutely fantastic and think the Lowland league will just grow form strength to strength

LATEST UPDATE 8/0620

Have confirmed Officially that they have or are applying or operated an Under 20s team in season 19/20.
Nothing is guaranteed until after June the 15th deadline for applications.
The only real problem teams  will have is having the right criteria for their home parks

Dunipace have an U20s confirmed but admittedly unsure at the moment for WOS or EOS

POSSIBLY; Teams who have applied are listed above. So at this moment we have 30 teams, (31 if counting Dunipace) from the West side and with an impressive, excellent East side of over 30 teams, the Lowland U20s Development League looks as if is growing from strength to strength)

The list below is of teams who have expressed an interest but nothing has been made official


Pollok                                                (heard they have their U20 management in place and just one obstacle to get over and they will apply)
Largs Thistle                                  (informed unofficially that they will be applying to join the U20 league)




Cumbernauld, Auchinleck, Rutherglen Glencairn and Cumnock are looking into it but think it looks like 21/22 when they are ready

Unless you know different this looks like the league which Larkhall Under 21's were in last season. They seem to be in the top division for next season. It's the West of Scotland Youth Lg Under 21's but not the Lowland Under 20's Development League.

Larkhall Thistle u21s weren't in the SYFA West of Scotland Premier last season. They were in the 2nd tier "Championship" league (I detest that name). When the league games finished they were sitting in 3rd place.
