Junior football reconstruction talks postponed after bridge closure

Have your say

Talks scheduled to discuss a proposal for the reconstruction of the East Region Juniors set-up have been put on hold.

A meeting planned in Inverkeithing tonight has been cancelled as a result of the Forth Road Bridge closure. This will now take place at a later date.

The East Region management committee put forward the proposal on the back of feedback from clubs based around the cost of travel, the Premier League, the size of the Super League and teams having too short a season.

The proposal include plans to cut the Super League from 16 to 14 from season 2018/19 and to disband the Premier League, replacing it with three regional leagues but reducing the automatic 
promotion places from two to one. Fife and Tayside clubs are expected to hold key votes, since they are most affected by the cost of travel. Should the proposal be backed by a majority of 50% of clubs, it will be tabled at the East Region’s AGM in June.
