    Without getting the map out, I think Brechin is closer by road to more Lowland teams than Highland.
    maybe but it would seem Lowland League teams disagree.

    Are Brechin making a choice or just replacing the team going up?
    Brechin are being forced into the Highland League.

    "The rules of the tier 5 leagues state that Scottish clubs situated below Dundee will enter the Lowland League and clubs, like Brechin City, positioned above the cut-off will enter the Highland League."

    For such a big hibs fan, he does like to hold aloft above his head an array of really horrible scarfs.

    Good luck to Thomson. Can't wish any luck to Kelty even though they are very near to where I am now, considering the name - sorry!

    You’re telling me
    He wants to be the Rangers manager
    I certainly hope he is

    Piss on Kelty and their horrible fans. Sorry, but they are a poor addition to the leagues.

    I know a Kelty coach, and Barry Ferguson was putting his own money in to sign players. They will have been spending a comparative fortune.
    Barry Ferguson was bankrupt a couple of years ago. Rumours were he had cash stashed away.

    I think I read that it was because most of their players already had to travel North to Brechin and the distances involved for some matches in the Highlands were pretty much out of the question for part time players. They've spent years playing most of their games in the lowland league area.
    Not sure if that was the reason but they were making a lot of noise last year about trying to ensure Lowland League regardless of who won. With Kelty going up, the LL was obvious but I think their behaviour last year attempting to bully the LL into an agreement obviously put noses out.

    No, he had decent advice and transferred his assets to his wife several years ago so that the taxman couldn't grab them.

    And rightfully so. The fact that they even think they should be allowed in to the Lowland League is laughable. From next season there’s a feeder league below the Highland League made up of Dundee/Angus ex juniors too
