A big shift over to the pyramid was all about promotion. Without that it's nothing. 

Those who are 'in' are probably loving the fact that the big boys have chosen the welfare of their players and club over rassling about the country in soaking kit, as they now have more of a chance of going up...after they get a lawyer lined up.

The players are million pound question. Very difficult to build a team next season for us.  The team that threatened legal again will be circling. 

Can someone tell me why a conf without promotion and a premier without relegation and possible promotion is worthwhile?

I can imagine a few teams will be wanting to push for the promotion to LL if available and if they can get funding from somewhere to pay wages there will be plenty top league players available just now given the teams withdrawing

And what teams are going to have money to pay these players.

Teams that are going to play on have already signed their squads and have players with contracts how are they going to fund signing new ones 

Will some not be good enough for league 1 or league 2 clubs ?

Haven't seen anything definite yet, but are the promotions, relegations and play offs dependant on every league completing its current season ? Or are there loads of rules with prefix A,B,C etc ? Can only imagine the clubs who carry on playing, must believe there is something to be gained - apart from the glory of being called champions.

Many of them will be an upgrade on what league 1 and 2 clubs have and will in most cases be on better money in WoSFL 

If you have a good look at league 1 and 2 there filling there squads with development loans from SPFL teams at very little cost to themselves

I’m sure there was something advised from the Sfa that there was something that said the contracts didn’t commence till the first competitive game was played . Not 100% on it though I’m looking for article just now 

If the club and player have signed a contract, there is nothing the SFA can do to change it without both parties' consent.

Can only have 6 max at one time. They also have to pay minimum wage. Think the amount non-league clubs pay is exaggerated. Main benefits of decent players coming down is silverware and reduced travelling, smaller pitches as well. Squads a lot younger up the leagues too. BSC in LL for example 1 player over 30. Pollok have 12.

Clubs from the Conference should be moved up to fill the refusniks places.

I thought that might happen. Gartcairn, Rossvale, Newmains and Royal Albert to battle it out for the title.

Queue a certain club’s management and players shortly banging on about starting league and forgetting the league nonsense and playing. This along with legal action is all a smoke screen. 

The league now looking very silly after some top teams drop out and no promotion or relegation

Club Statement – West Of Scotland League
It is with regret that the committee of Glenafton Athletic announce our withdrawal from participation in the 2020/2021 West of Scotland Football League.
We have carefully considered all of the information and options we have at our disposal, and have arrived at our decision based on the following:
Our club members and supporters are quite simply the life blood of our club. We rely heavily on match day income such as hospitality, catering and weekly draws. Current Government legislation, prohibits us from allowing any members, supporters or sponsors into the ground. With the COVID 19 situation unlikely to change for some time, it would be financially unsustainable for the club to continue to operate without having the aforementioned income streams.
With a drastically reduced projected income, we feel that that to play under these conditions would financially cripple the club which could potentially raise doubts over our future existence, Quite simply this is not a risk we are willing to take, and as such we feel we have no other viable option than to withdraw from this seasons League Championship.
We hope that everyone associated with the club understands our decision and can acknowledge that this was not taken lightly. We do however, feel that this is the only viable option for Glenafton at this time. We would like to place on record our thanks to all fans, sponsors and members for their continued support of the club through this difficult time. We look forward to returning whenever circumstances allow.
Club Statement – Craig Mcewan
Following the clubs decision to withdraw from this seasons West Of Scotland League, the club have now reluctantly accepted the resignation of Manager Craig Mcewan.
Craig has tonight informed the club that he no longer wishes to remain in charge, in light of today`s announcement regarding our withdrawal from West Of Scotland League.
The club would like to place on record its thanks to Craig and his coaching staff for their 5 and a half years of hard work, and the significant success he brought to the club.
We wish Craig and family all the best for the future.
Yours in Sport
Ian Young (Club President) & John Stewart (Club Secretary)

Tail tried to wag the dog here going by the calibre of clubs that have withdrawn.

These are the clubs that will be paying bigger wages to players 

A lot of clubs in the 3 conferences will be paying buttons to 2 or 3 players and expenses only to the rest

It's all the big team they are the ones with the most to lose out. No crowds and high wages. It's going to be interesting where the league go from here.
