Most won't be interested but I just noticed that Scotish football leagues only English based club Berwick Rangers were relegated at the weekend to be replaced by Cove Rangers.

That's a staple quiz question gone out of the window there. I wonder if Jock's Auchinleck will ever make it into the SPFL.

What league would Berwick play in next season then? Could they go into the English system?

The Lowland League is supposedly the 5th level of Scottish football. The reality is that the vast majority of clubs in it are not that good. In fact, some of them are utter shite, nomadic, and some backed my wee money men looking to bask in reflected glory of maybe somehow getting into the SFL.

Cove Rangers, who won the play off and will now ply their trade in the SFL next season are the biggest whingeing wallopers I've ever come across in the Scottish non league game, and everybody hates them with a passion because they are backed with serious money (off shore diving company) and their fans think they're the dog's bollox.

Auchinleck Talbot played them in this season's Scottish Cup 2nd round. Nobody had previously scored at their ground before the game, and they had won every game played up until then. We came away with a 1-1 draw having pummelled them in the second half after going in 1-0 down. We beat them 2-1 at home and they players refused to come into the clubhouse for the traditional post match hospitality - which speaks volumes about their stinking attitude.

They have an ex Aberdeen centre forward playing for them who cost £30k and is reputed to be on about £600-£700 per week. They drip money and arrogance, and most folk up here would love to see them relegated straight back down. Unlikely to happen though, they'll strengthen this close season and probably get a few Aberdeen youth players / reserves brought in as well. They'll want a quick return on their money.


No attempt at ethical or social seduction can eradicate from my heart a deep burning hatred of the Tory party. So far as I'm concerned they're lower than vermin. Aneurin Bevan.

How do they decide which team plays off against the bottom team in the SPL Jock. Do the winners of the Highland League and the Lowland League have a play-off themselves to decide? Also are Auchinleck able to get into The Lowland League or not?
