Yes, but has Kilbride continued as a WoSL club or reverted to their previous status?

And has what was their team gone to Ardeer?

The plan was for Kilbride Thistle's amateur team to step up to the WoSFL with TASS Thistle's amateur team taking on the Kilbride Thistle name.

I would guess that's what's played out for Kilbride Thistle ams to have a team on the go with the departures..

EDIT: This was from after the announced departures to Ardeer.

That statement from Kilbride Thistle always worried me. If Sean Kenney's intention is to take Kilbride Thistle into the WoSFL in his Chairman role, what happens then? Does he take the whole team back from Ardeer Thistle and leave them in the lurch.

Kilbride Thistle's amateur team appears to have transitioned across to being Ardeer Thistle while another amateur club Tass Thistle is stepping in to be Kilbride Thistle in Ayrshire amateur terms. Given how Ardeer Thistle have been struggling in recent seasons, the previous committee may have been happy to step aside and let another group take it on lock, stock and barrel. Seems to me that having a struggling WoS club and ambitious youth clubs amalgamating their efforts would be a better outcome than having a second WoS club emerge in Saltcoats.

They really need to get someone to proofread their statements.

it's like their "social media team" all took turns writing it a word at as time. Authentic frontier gibberish.

This happens so often down in England, that it doesn't surprise me. Manager joins club A with a bigger budget. Club B sees the majority of players follow the manager, leaving them to struggle along. Most times it's a sponsors money that drives the scheme, eventually to backfire after say  5 years. Now with the majority of Scottish clubs gone Senior, this will happen more and more, sadly.

Maybe Westerton should have just took over an ex Junior club.

Maryhill were crying out for volunteers not that long ago.

Do you know where Westerton intend to play home games next season?

They had some plans to move to St Matthews playing fields in Ardrossan and develop a ground there, I believe.

The playing fields and school are in Saltcoats not Ardrossan.

If Kilbride Thistle want to move up beyond the amateur ranks then fair enough. But it makes sense to do it in West Kilbride, not the Three Towns where there is already an established club in each town.

Abso...feckin...lutetely.

I did try to hint toward that point of view to Sean weeks ago. He gave a very diplomatic, non-comittal, response.

Everybody down here knows that Ardeer Thistle & Saltcoats Victoria have both been crying out for haunners from the local populace for ages.

Why are they only getting help from TASS and Kilbride now ?

Just throwing it in, say IF around 10 amateur clubs are looking to go senior sometime,  questions spring to mind 1) are there enough grounds that meet criteria, 2) would these clubs have finances to upgrade and 3) are there enough players who wish to go senior ? Seeing as most are already  signed by  current WOSFL clubs I'd guess. Have realistic dreams and ambition.

BSC Glasgow in the Lowland League are now changing there name so people won't be confused by the two names now in the leagues

So the only BSC Glasgow in town will be the BSC Glasgow in the West of Scotland League20210613_152809.jpg

Maybe because the old Juniors club are now in with the big boys?
