 Reserve League
Topic Originator: par-91  
Date:   Tue 26 Jul 11:09

Noticed that Livi have announced that they’re one of 10 teams playing in the SPFL reserve league this year. Doesn’t look like we’re one of those teams. They’ve listed fixtures against the 9 other teams and we aren’t included.

Weren’t we complaining about the lack of reserve league for the last couple of seasons? I know that we don’t have a massive squad just now, but surely it would be good for our fringe players and some of the younger guys to get minutes, alongside those returning from injuries etc throughout the season?

Being in L1 probably put an end to us wanting Reserve League football. We`ve hardly got a big enough first team squad. It`ll be for Premiership and possibly some Championship clubs.

Queen of the South are in the reserve league, so it’s not to do with the level we’re now at. We currently have 22 full time players signed up and are in the market for more, as well as having an academy, so I’m a bit surprised that we haven’t taken this opportunity. However, the club will obviously have their reasons.

Bar about 4/5 first teams players, those who should be in the reserves get a game for us now.

Things will be looking up……..now yogi is gone!

I know there has been some reserve friendlies going on the last few weeks but don`t seem to be advertised. Is there a place where these are listed for anyone who might be interested in going along.

Is there a case for rebooting the Fife Cup?

There must be about 20 Fife clubs in the pyramid so there would be options for a format that gave us approximately the right number of games at the right level.

I think a cup semi under the lights at Starks might be of more value for the under 20s than a relatively meaningless friendly.

Par - I`ve found out about friendlies by word of mouth, but I believe there is a website out there - don`t know the name - sorry.
