4hours 45 minutes or 226 miles from castle Douglas to campbeltown what a day out that will be .

That's the thing to focus on. A day. The Central belt players they have on the books will be grateful they don't have to make the full journey :)

Says something that a licensed club would willingly want to drop from tier 6 in the shape of the SoS to tier 10 in the shape of this division to play against a collection of amateur and youth clubs rather than former west region teams.

Blantyre Soccer Academy

Are they confirmed? Not listed in the Strathclyde Cup draw, though in theory they could have entered the Junior Cup instead.

Be lucky to get 100 fans between all the games on a matchday. 

Couple of years of headcounts show Threave would usually average over a 100 in the league.

The one attempt at headcounts from 2019-20 included very incomplete stats, but league averages were this.

Fact is the vast majority of semi-pro teams whether traditional/amateur/youth background seriously struggle to break a 100 or come close. That's why you had those in the Juniors that wanted to keep the Sectional League Cup to get the bigger teams through.

Are all these 4th Division grounds up to standard to host cup matches against already established clubs?

Or put it another way - if no work is done on any of the new entrants grounds, would they be eligible for promotion in a years time? Or is there any kind of minimum standard for competing in Division 4?

Some of the clubs have mentioned being accepted into full membership. I would think there has to be something in place with regards promotion.

Campbeltown Pupils home, Kintyre Park, is a privately owned ground of a very good standard with a variety of renovations carried out last season to meet criteria. The club cannot be faulted for showing ambition and the community spirit shown is amazing.

Isn't McKenna Park a grass pitch?

If so, what happened to no new ground share arrangements except on artificial pitches?

Maybe not a "new" ground share if two teams were already sharing last season (without any issues)?

12 team league is a weird number. 22, 33 or 44 game league? Or a split?

Surely 33 without a split, they can cope with those extra 3 games as most are unlikely to be going far in the cups, 22/44 too little/too much.

Yeah I think because Harmony Row and St. Cadoc's are switching groundshares, it technically doesn't count as a new groundshare so is allowed.
