TFW Posted April 16, 2020 Share Posted April 16, 2020 Dust is settling, Questions still being asked about Conference set ups, and how many teams there are likely to be in each one next season. Minor things. Having spoken to many Talbot fans about moving from Junior to the Senior ranks, I know some are fairly ambivalent, others saying change was perhaps inevitable, and others saying we should have stopped where we are. That's understandable, we were very successful indeed at our old grade, and nobody can take our history away from us. I know I'm probably in the minority of fans who have come down decidedly in favour of the move to the new set up, and I can't wait for it all to start - whenever that is. We'll still be playing some of last season's teams, we'll be playing other teams we haven't played for a while, and maybe one or two new ones. What's not to like? If we are in a Conference with some of our Ayrshire neighbours who rarely get the chance of a decent gate, then it's a chance for them to reap that benefit and I see nothing wrong at all with that. The Conferences are for just the one season and it won't hurt any of the top clubs to take decent support to such clubs wherever they may be. Will we still play in the Junior Cup? I hope we do only if there are sufficient clubs who wish to participate, I'd hate to see a once proud competition become an additional extra that doesn't have any standing any more. If that's the case it should be consigned to history, and we can live on the many memories. 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
