Hadn't seen it reported.

 

SPFL are to review the pyramid play offs. They say they are "considering several issues". Brechin's Ken Ferguson has resigned from SPFL board due to conflict of interest. 

 

Still have the proposal for the Colts which involved promoting 2 teams each from Lowland and Highland leagues. 

Took him 12 months to learn what a conflict of interest is eh?

It's in the East of Scotland Leagues thread.

From the BBC site -   https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/56696019

 

A couple of  (..ahem..  )  interesting bits from it -

 

 

 

In a statement from the SPFL, Ken Ferguson (Brechin)  said he wants "to devote all my time and energy into ensuring that Brechin City do not finish bottom of League 2 this season".

.

.

.

Kelty Hearts have been declared champions of the Lowland League and Brora Rangers announced as Highland League champions, both for the second year running.

However, the SPFL points out Kelty had played just 13 games and Brora only three this season and that it is not yet certain whether League 2 clubs will complete all 22 planned matches.

It will therefore decide on 19 April whether either Kelty or Brora "meet the SPFL's membership criteria".

"Only then will the SPFL be in a position to announce the position in respect of pyramid play-offs this season," it stated.

 

Well, well, well  - our revered SPFL blazers now considering SCRAPPING the concept of  relegation/promotion if you don't complete the full fixtures.      

 

And can anyone explain in what way Ferguson (having resigned)  will be able to devote "all his energies" to helping Brechin avoid relegation ?   Being on the SPFL board is not a full-time job anyway..... and he's not involved in Brechin's matchday team decisions.     A cynic might suggest that his former chums o the SPFL board are  "devoting all their energies" to that cause already.  :whistling:

Get the SPFL tracker out, watch the distancing then the inevitable return complete with his impartiality in tact.
