Lowland League promotion playoffs


Recommended Posts

Unless the Kirkcudbright side pulls off a shock result it all comes down to the Darvel v Tranent game IMO.

Read previously that if any game is a draw after 90 mins there is a penalty shootout for an extra point i.e.:-
Win 3 points
Draw and win penalty shootout 2 points
Draw and lose shootout 1 point.

That would be quite important. Otherwise it would be a case of whoever best St Cuthberts by more just needing a draw.

I'm going to write off St Cuthbert's.


I will also write them off. They will do well not to lose at least one of the games by double figures.

any idea how they decided on who got home advantage v others?

Unfortunately it wasn't a random draw, the LL decided not to include Darvel in the first game, therefore they were always getting the home game on the final Saturday v the EOS winners.

This probably sums up the shambles that is the Self Preservation Lowland League.

The rules specify a random draw. https://slfl.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2022/01/Lower-Pyramid-play-off-rules-2020.pdf

I appreciate what the rules state, but it wasn't random, how can one team be omitted from the draw for the first fixture?

Where are you getting your information from, because it’s not correct.

Correct me if I'm wrong but none of the clubs going for promotion to the LL have a train station in their town? Shameful.

Tranent has Prestonpans station not too far off.

Its 100% correct.

As one of the contenders for the WOSFL championship has reached the final of the SFA South Region Challenge Cup, which is due to take place on the same weekend as the first play off fixture the Board agreed that the WOSFL champion will only take part in dates two and three.

Why were the board so keen to make a 'random draw' prior to the winners being decided for both the WOSFL and the EOSFL on the 4th May, surely if its a random draw then all teams winning their respective leagues should have been included in the draw for the first game also?
