For clarity, it's BSC Glasgow in the LOWLAND League that are going to change name, to what we do not yet know.Looks like BSC Glasgow are changing their name going by a statement they have put out.
Two new teams have joined the East Juniors (i.e. Tayside) for 2021/2 - Letham and Dundee St James.
In Letham's case they were knocked back by the East of Scotland League who would have put them in tier 8. The Juniors, now part of the Pyramid, have put the Perth side in tier 6. Result for them!
Dundee St James play at Fairfield Park, the former home if Dundee St Josephs.
That will be a very tempting thin edge of a wedge.Apparently the bribe is £290k per club for 5 seasons and not being able to go further than L1.
The Lowland League really sold themselves short with the £25k per club.
Is this speculation, or is it in the proposal?A further aspect of the bribe is no relegation from the SPFL in 2022/3 and 2023/4.
2 x Wee Bigots added to SPFL for 2022/3
Highland and Lowland League Champions promoted at end of 2022/3 and 2023/4
New structure of 4 x 12 Divisions from 2024/5.
Remains to been how much of the £290k per club is new money or how much is pared off from the existing prize pot.
Two questions I’d like to know. If this proposal gets accepted, will there be automatic relegation from SPFL2, or will club 48 face a relegation playoff? If the old firm colt sides finish up in the SPFL2 relegation zone, will they be subjected to relegation/playoffs?Here's the BBC report on the SPFL reconstruction proposal. All 42 member clubs have been asked to give an indication of whether they would be for or against before it is decided if the matter will go forward to a motion at the SPFL AGM in July.
