Why would any team renew their subscription but not take part in the Junior Cup?
Do we know when the SJFA AGM is?

Some teams may just want to keep their options open. The membership fee is not expensive. Sone teams may renew to facilitate finishing this season's competition but may not play next season's competition. Various reasons.

Maybe some not wanting to miss out on a coronavirus payment if there is one.

Hopefully hear of a good few more clubs taking up membership soon the more the merrier! 

Listen i saw elsewhere is very encouraging which can only be a good thing for this grade of non league football. 

SJFA membership will be at its lowest since the 19th Century m8, just let that sink in.

Worrying that some people may think that clubs being sjfa members for next season - really means that the Juniors are still alive and kicking All this Senior talk blah blah...welcome back to the junior bosom, cosy times.

Highly doubtful anybody is thinking they are still a Junior club in the West.

Meant to say that some fans believed this - like never accepting a relative has died etc . Say goodbye to the amazing Juniors and let's move on

Best not to take what you read on here as being in any way representative of what most fans think. Only a very small self-selecting group is active on message boards.

Being an English groundhopper,and having seen the (mainly) success of our non lge pyramid (again geography being a problem) it would be great to see the Scottish game have some good leagues feeding into the spfl, with the positive criteria that comes with progress. Good to have memories though of the beautiful game.

West Juniors are still dead in the real world mate, nothing you and your sidekick  on here can do about it no matter how hard you stomp your feet and cry "LOOK AT ME".

Yet another post from you claiming folk have "issues" that need to be dealt with, you would be better sodding off and sticking to threads  involving Ireland. (Failed statelet and Southern versions)

You have been asked politely by 8mileBU to delete the Bo'ness United thread you had no business starting on the LL subforum. How about doing that rather than being a pathetic obsessive troll?

Still don't get this one. So many people absolutely desperate to make sure the word Junior is never to be mentioned again.

If clubs have taken a memebership for next year they are members of the Scottish Junior Football Association. What's the problem with that?

Agree 100% if I can try and see inside their minds it sounds like a Senior club are trying to play in a Junior Cup - bit like Man City or someone  playing in  the FA Trophy. Call yourself Glasgow Brickworks FC and play non bricked, who cares ? The Juniors have gone, they were great times, let's move on please.

Looks like a case of group think to me. People incessantly parroting the party line to be in with the in crowd without stopping to think if it all actually makes sense.

The west region joined the pyramid intact, and the north region should soon as well. Once the ongoing mess in the east finally gets sorted hopefully there will be some joined up thinking on how to have a national cup competition involving north, east, west and south that is bigger and better than what the junior cup used to provide.

No disrespect to the South Challenge Cup but it has yet to capture the public imagination to any significant extent and I'm far from convinced that it ever will.

Firstly LTL plugs away on here with one or two others for about 4 years telling us all the pyramid is the pathway to Valhalla. The entire, what was then 64 Junior clubs, Dunipace jumped first to the EoSFL leaving 63 teams who moved as one block to the WoSFL.

Now LTL turns round and tells us the main cup competition for lower league teams south of the Tay is a damp squib and not fit for purpose with an unlikely future.

Nice one, LTL.
