68 West of Scotland League applications received and the next steps
In line with the previous statements this is the latest information regarding the new West of Scotland Football League (WoSFL) proposed by the Scottish Lowland Football League (SLFL) , East of Scotland Football League (EoSFL) and the South of Scotland Football League (SoSFL) .
By close of business on Tuesday April 7th 2020, 68 applications have been received from various areas of football. Those applications are now being reviewed and a further statement will be made early next week. The review is to ensure the information provided is complete and to ask Clubs for any further information where necessary.
The original next step was to invite the Clubs whose application has been accepted to an information meeting during April. That will not be possible due to current restrictions in place. The new plan is to hold a series of video conferencing meetings to discuss the possible set up of the League and arrangements for temporary management and administration. At the same time discussions will take place on the process and timetable for the creation of a WoSFL Board and administration.
Further information on the video conferences will be provided in the statement early next week and these will be arranged as soon as possible, certainly before the end of April.
