BO’NESS UNITED have tonight confirmed they are preparing to leave Junior Football and head for the Lowland League.
Derek Crossan, vice-chairman, said it would be wrong for the club not to look to improve itself.
“We are constantly looking at ways to develop the football club and move forward. This involves considering the pyramid, licensing, and potentially moving leagues.
We believe that there will be considerable change within Scottish football in the coming seasons and we want to be ready for any change and don’t want to be left behind.
At Bo’ness United we want to progress and it would be remiss of us not to look at ways to develop the football club and as such we are working towards being ready with our licence application. In order to receive your licence it is now a stipulation that you must commit to the pyramid.
“We have looked at the potential benefits of joining the pyramid and believe that in order to compete in the future this is something we must look to do.
“The financial benefits of becoming licensed far outweigh the revenues that can be made if we stay within Junior Football as it is at the present time.”
