This thread is getting more pathetic than 2 bald men fighting over a comb.

FFS move on.

Aye, but is it a senior comb or a junior comb?

I haven't read much from this thread but Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum want their 'B' teams as high as one league below their senior teams. It's a disgrace that the majority of the teams in the Lowland League are facilitating this.

I suppose the end game is that they will still have a foothold within the Scottish League if or when the Gruesome Twosome's senior teams leave the Scottish game.

If one of the B teams win the Lowland League, would that mean that no club from the Lowland would proceed to the play-offs and it would straight shoot-off between the Highland League winners and Club 42?

A Guest team can never win the Lowland League. Just finish 1st. The Championship and the place in the SPFL2 Playoff would go to the highest real LL team even if they finished 3rd/4th in the table.

The expectation is that if it happened it could be challenged by Club 42.

Was there an attempt to change the rules regarding that recently? So if a B Team won the league, the next highest non B team couldn't qualify for the play off? I'm sure there was some attempt which was (as always) an effort to encourage promotion for the B teams.

No. The opposite was true, the rules had to be changed to specifically make it so that the highest non-B team could play in the play-off. The SPFL rules do not allow B teams to participate, so unless that changed (and there has consistently not been sufficient appetite for it in the SPFL) there is no prospect of promotion regardless of what the Lowland League decides to do.

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.
 
Pretty sure there's quite a few in the North juniors which given they also mention highland league is eminently a possible for them.

Why don't you go and watch them then.

From the Non League Matters web site today.

Prorege:

The outcome of the 3-way Colts application for 2022/3 will become clear in the next 7 days. Outcome might not be what people are expecting.

The only outcome I wouldn't expect is that colt teams are ditched. There's no ridiculous and/or utterly shite outcome I'd put past the the LL and SFA.

They are gonna have all three teams in the LL but only two places. Colt A and Colt B will the teams in the league. Hearts will be Colt A for the first two thirds of the season. Celtic will be Colt B for the first third of the season and Colt A for the last third of the season. Sevco will be Colt B for the last two thirds of the season. 

I just made that up but it is exactly the kinda pish I expect from the Lowland League now.

But only if all LL chairmen get a tour of the trophy room, selfies with at least two first team players, and their autograph books filled.

Why don't they just enter a team at the lowest tier in the West League (or East League for Hearts) and let them work their way up? Like every other club would have to do.

Baskonia are a wee team from the Basque country who are a completely and utterly separate club from Athletic Club. However they usually have the maximum amount of loanees from Athletic Club at their club at a single time. Players from Athletic Club often get sold to Baskonia for free with a buy back clause of one euro. Ex Athletic Club players tend to get coaching roles at Baskonia while going through their coaching badges. Still entirely separate clubs. I can't fathom why those sort of partnerships don't exist throughout the Scottish pyramid. I'm sure Cambuslang Rangers would love that sort of set up with Rangers, for instance.

But hold on, won't the Lowland League clubs not go bust without Rangers and Celtic colts?

Without condoning their inclusion, I’m not sure of the benefit for any party of Celtic/Rangers playing any team in the 4th division of the WoSFL.
