Celtic and Rangers B Teams in League Two?

There is literally no chance of them being promoted, it would take a seismic shift in the rules of the SPFL to allow it to happen.
I'm willing to give you any odds you want that the colts will be in League Two within five seasons.

If you get more Premiership sides wanting part of it, the League 2 clubs are eminently bribable. I'd say 2-3 years rather 5.

Have always said that if that comes to pass i would not be going to follow my team in the Scottish League, if they sell out would go to watch junior or Highland League providing they have not sold out as well. No way should teams be allowed to have more than one team in the actual league system.

I doubt their supporters are, though.

The OF have offered hundreds of thousands and forgoing prize money to get into the SPFL as part of trials, SPFL3 and other proposals. That does not seem eminently bribable to me.

And btw, I've played non-league in The Netherlands, until I had to retire as my knee gave up...

Ah, Skyrim.

There seems to be a massive difference in mindset between supporters and people directly involved in the business, from players to the top blazers, who nearly all seem to be in favour. This is just my impression from podcasts, general media interviews etc.

That might change if it's not just the OF and there's more structure to it, serious parachute payments etc.

The TV deal is due to run until the 2024-25 season. Where's this money coming from? And how can clubs that can't afford to run a reserve side suddenly finding the cash for B teams?

What do you think they have been doing for the last 3/4 years? The SPFL member clubs won’t vote for it, that’s a fact.

Tbf, the SPFL Clubs have never ever been asked to vote on anything to do with the pyramid, all done in smoke filled rooms at Hampden.

On the subject of transparency tho, the SFA PGB meeting took place yesterday where the guest Clubs and associated LL rules were to be ratified. When can a statement be expected from LL on result and as rumoured, additional criteria imposed ?

Firstly there aren't any Juniors.

I'd suggest you look at some of the leagues.

More than two clubs have two teams in different leagues.

Maybe but Peternapper said that clubs should not be allowed to have two teams in the same league. And I think you'll find that there are still juniors

I'm going to Rugby Park to see the Junior Cup Final, Yoker v Talbot, have I been conned? 🤔

They kept the Junior Cup going for old times sake.

Not all ex Juniors took part.

I'd expect the Junior Cup to be replaced by a national non league cup competition in future years.

The East / Midlands Region and the North Region are both regions of the Scottish Junior FA.

With line-ups and scorers for all games, probably the best non-league website out there for stattos like me 😆
