Meanwhile in leagues and competitions where players appear motivated to give their best .......

 

Two games in the 1st Preliminary Round of the Scottish Cup today.

 

Penicuik 2-3 (aet) Musselburgh - both teams ended up with 10 men.

LTHV 2-1 (aet) St Cuthbert Wanderers.

 

Muzzy's reward for the win is the not too short trip to Wick.

Interesting. Do you know anything about this free pass to withdraw in December from the LL?

It was mooted before the league started in October, but I haven't seen anything formalised since then.

 

I can understand why they would want to give clubs that guarantee in the absence of fans, but I'm unsure whether or not any clubs would take up the option, now that most teams have played 10 or more games.

 

The cynic in me would say that it would be in the interests of Vale of Leithen, Edinburgh Uni and Dalbeattie to take up the option, thus avoiding any risk of relegation. 

 

I think the the LL rules were amended to allow them to run with a league of 18.  That could be an issue for promotion from tier 6, particularly if a team from the HL wins the SPFL play-off and a team is demoted to the LL, e.g. Albion Rovers

Whitehill rightly unhappy with the SFA.

CLUB STATEMENT

BY JAMES STOUT
2 HOURS AGO
Scottish FA Disciplinary Tribunal

Following our Scottish Cup 2nd Preliminary Round tie with Hill of Beath Hawthorn on Saturday 12 December, The Club was made aware that one of the opposition players was potentially ineligible and should have been serving a suspension. The Club raised this matter with the Scottish FA on Monday morning and asked them to investigate.

The Club received an email late this afternoon from The Scottish FA to inform us that a Disciplinary Tribunal met this afternoon and has censured Hill of Beath Hawthorn and issued a £2,000 fine, which is suspended until the end of the 2020/21 season.

The Club finds this outcome baffling and inconsistent with The Scottish FA’s own rules for the competition and previous sanctions where a club has been found to have fielded an ineligible player.

As far as The Club can ascertain, regardless of circumstances, the Judicial Panel Protocol is clear that there is a mandatory ejection from The Scottish Cup for fielding an ineligible player (Rule 303, associated with Scottish Cup Rule 12).

To further compound our sense of injustice, the tribunal has reinstated the players suspension, resulting in the player missing the next round of The Scottish Cup.

Our supporters can be rest assured that The Club are raising this matter directly with The Scottish FA as a matter of urgency and will provide an update as and when they see fit to respond. The Club has however, been told that we have no right of appeal.

Discussed at length on Pie & Bovril. Seems to be a complicated situation involving a player (Daniel Watt) who had suspensions arising from two separate competitions (last year’s south challenge cup and the East of Scotland league this year). But perhaps crucially, he was shown on the  SFA 10 December list of outstanding suspensions as having only one game left to serve and that to be an East of Scotland league game. On that basis Hill of Beath played him in the cup tie. So the issue seems to me to be how far should clubs be held responsible for errors made by the SFA. Perhaps the fairest outcome would have been a replay of the cup tie. It would also help if the rules were simplified so that only offences in the Scottish Cup could give rise to players being suspended in that competition.

This is only my reading of it btw.

The player was suspended from the South Cup from last season. He was sent off in a league match and received an immediate two game ban plus a futher East league ban (here's a link to the game and the red card at 9:30 .... the video is x-rated 😁 )

I think both the club and the player would (should?) have know that adds up to 4 games suspended, albeit in different competitions After missing this season's South Cup match the updated Suspension list effectively shows that one game counted as two games. I think player and club probably thought they won a watch and, rather than clarify, chose to keep quiet. Even more so when the next again week showed him down to an East League ban only.

I'd be amazed if club secretaries weren't up to date on their own player suspensions, I'd be less amazed if the player didn't have a clue.

Short notice?
Posponed last fri morning before last Sat 3pm ko
Posponed Mon morning before Tue 7:30pm ko
Posponed Fri afternoon before Sat 3pm ko
Unlucky for Musselburgh no doubting but there'd be questions asked if Wick called it off any earlier and even more questions if they called it off any later surely?

So basically the 3 games were called off the day before. I believe Musselburgh had to travel up the day before due to the distance up there. Not much notice for the accommodation booked.

Were they called off due to weather issues?

A total shambles that the game was played on a Monday night.

 

Wick is 270 miles away from Musselburgh.

 

Utter nonsense at that level that a team had to drive 5 and a half hours on a Monday to play a match.

 

Musselburgh were missing a few of their first team players because they had booked time off their work and then couldn't get it changed when the game was suspended and then rescheduled.

Rules are rules - don't enter the cup if you can't put out a team. Similar sounds to Albion Rovers claiming it's too far to Brora to have them in the league as "we can't afford the bus fares."

 

I'm reminded of the very first league season in 1890 when Morton or some other Western team moaned about having to come to play Hearts in Edinburgh. Hearts' answer was "we have to go to the Glasgow area every second week!" (Hearts were the only non-West team).

Jambo in Yorkshire

Postponed games in the cup have always resulted in midweek games for non league teams.

I was playing for Vale in the early 80,s and we drew with Stranraer on the Saturday (game was postponed the previous Saturday) and had to go to Stranraar on the Monday night.

Edinburgh to Stranraar via Innerleithen in heavy rain was bad enough but the pitch was waterlogged.

Ref was from Glasgow as were a number of their players, option return on Wednesday or play.

 

We played and lost 2-0 in heavy rain and strong wind.

It had already been postponed three times and the next round is on boxing day.

Reading the local newspaper report it looks like Musselburgh got a rough deal from the referee!
