Highland League 2019/20 Can't Post or Reply Privately

Banks o' Dee have been invited to join the Highland League for 2019/20. They have refused the invitation.
Highland League clubs now considering inviting Inverness Caley Thistle to enter their Colts team in the League.
This is further evidence of the HL keeping away from the Pyramid concept - as it stands the HL Champions could not be promoted to the SPFL if there was a colts / reserve team in the league.

Is Banks O'Dee decision likely to be down to avoiding extra travel? Particularly to the far north, albeit two trips per season (and they could get that & longer in SFA Cup)?
Shame really, as they would be an ideal Highland League club...
Would the likes of Golspie consider the step up (if they were able to get floodlit)?

No other clubs are interested in joining the Highland League.
Golspie are happy as there are. Like all the teams north of Inverness, many of their players play Summer football as well, so the short North Caledonian League Winter season suits them just fine.

Banks o' Dee re happy where they are. They get the pick of the Aberdeen area Junior players who are not willing to travel huge distances on a regular basis, including midweek, to play their football. Also they do not stand in the way of any players who want to move to Highland league clubs and are in demand to do so.

I know you mentioned on another thread about HL clubs & whether any have ambitions. I’m not sure if you mentioned Formartine Utd. I’ve been told that the players at least have ambitions to play in the SPFL. I don’t know how realistic their chances of even winning the HL & being able to play in the playoffs?

They're certainly good enough. They've been runners-up in the league three times in the last seven years, and have reached the fourth round of the Scottish Cup twice in the last four.

And am I mistaken or didn't their ground quite recently host a minor international for which it passed a UEFA inspection?

Like all Highland League teams, they have at least an entry level licence and therefore are eligible for promotion to the SPFL should they win the league and progress through the playoffs.

Afternoon all!

THE SCOTTISH HIGHLAND FOOTBALL LEAGUE DIARY 2018/19 IS NOW ON SALE!

Now in its fifth year, the latest SHFL Diary clocks in at a bumper 310 pages, and is a complete record of the 2018/19 Breedon Highland League season, which saw 1,260 goals scored across ten long months and ended with Cove Rangers winning their seventh league title, before successfully negotiating the post-season playoffs to become the first Highland League side promoted to SPFL League Two. Martin Scott, a late-season signing for Cove who chipped in with three goals across seven appearances, adorns the cover this time out.


Cover for the Scottish Highland Football League Diary 2018/19

Complete with match reports on all competitive games across all league and cup competitions, club statistics, competition summaries, league tables and more, the book is packed with features which are sure to be of interest to fans of all SHFL clubs. This seasons edition contains fixtures for the coming season and dates for competitions which had yet to be drawn at the time of final editing.

As time goes on, details of matches from previous seasons become harder to find, and the SHFL Diary will act as a permanent written record of each season and will continue to occupy a place on the bookshelf of football fans long after Facebook pages, Twitter feeds and club websites have been forgotten or disappeared.

The SHFL Diary 2018/19 is sponsored by McBookie, whose contribution during the production process has once again proved invaluable. Their help has meant that, despite the book continuing to grow in size, the price has remained the same.

You can order your copy by clicking HERE!

For the next couple of days, you can get 15% off the cover price of £15 by using the discount code LKAB317CD at the checkout.

All of our previous editions remain on sale and can be ordered via our author spotlight page at our publishers website. You can find our spotlight page by clicking HERE!

If anyone has any questions about the latest edition, any of the older ones, the ordering process, or anything else, feel free to ask.

Happy reading!

This is further evidence of the HL keeping away from the Pyramid concept - as it stands the HL Champions could not be promoted to the SPFL if there was a colts / reserve team in the league.


The Highland League clubs voted against inviting an ICT Colts team into the league.

To circumvent this ICT have now transferred nine of their development players to Fort William on a season-long loan.

Hopefully with these 9 development players in their squad this season, Fort William can keep the goals conceded column in double figures.

Presumably there's no limits on the number of loanees in the Highland League ? It's going to create a weird club within a club situation. Are ICT sending a coach as well?

If ICT can do it, then whats to stop Rangers or Celtic doing likewise? Are their loanee limits in the Scottish league? Could they swallow smaller league clubs like Albion, Clyde or Dumbarton?

What happens if Fort William win the Highland league? Would ICT invest in facilities to get them promoted, as ridiculous an idea as that sounds for the Fort after recent efforts.

The situation could arise that ICT draw Fort William in the Scottish Cup. Because there will be rules/regulations that prohibit loanees playing against their parent club it would mean Fort William playing a weakened side.

There is a limit to the number of loans you can have and the number from one club. What has happened at Fort can''t be repeated in the SPFL.

Why would there be any need to invest in facilities? Are not teams only allowed in the Highland League if they are fit for promotion?

Not the best start, but only a 6-0 defeat. However, keep that up on they’ll be pushing closer to 200 goals concealed column.

Banks o' Dee have been invited to join the Highland League for 2019/20. They have refused the invitation.
Highland League clubs now considering inviting Inverness Caley Thistle to enter their Colts team in the League.
This is further evidence of the HL keeping away from the Pyramid concept - as it stands the HL Champions could not be promoted to the SPFL if there was a colts / reserve team in the league.


The Highland League clubs voted against inviting an ICT Colts team into the league.

To circumvent this ICT have now transferred nine of their development players to Fort William on a season-long loan.


Hopefully with these 9 development players in their squad this season, Fort William can keep the goals conceded column in double figures.


Not the best start, but only a 6-0 defeat. However, keep that up on they’ll be pushing closer to 200 goals concealed column.

I'm interested in concealed goals. How does this work? We did consider nicking the goal on wheels at Concord Rangers once, but we had our centre forward in goal and won 2-0

Maybe they get a lot of fog.
