A guide to season 2018-19

The dust has only just settled on last season but we’re already looking ahead with the players due to report back to pre-season training this Saturday. We’ve got some friendly fixtures lined up later in July but before that we just wanted to go through a bit of housekeeping with several changes happening in the structure of our league and cup competitions in the coming season.

Expanded premier division

You’ll no doubt be aware after this was passed at last years West Region AGM, but this season the Premier Division has gone from 12 teams to 16. We’ve lost Arthurlie and Girvan but First Division champions Petershill move up along with Largs Thistle, Renfrew, Cambuslang Rangers, Troon and Irvine Meadow XI. The league is now called the Premiership with the Championship, League 1 and League 2 sitting below that.

This season the league kicks off on August 4th with a trip to newly promoted Renfrew. We then welcome Largs to Newlandsfield before a trip to the seaside to play Troon. Check out our fixtures page for the first half of the season’s fixtures..

NEW SECTIONAL CUP FORMAT

The Sectional Cup has been revamped for season 2018/19 bringing together the Central and Ayrshire sections into one competition. All West region teams have been split into groups of 8 teams, bar one which has 7 teams. The teams within that group of 8 were then drawn into two mini groups of 4. (Still with us?) This group of 4 is our section for the next two seasons. In the third season, the same original group of 8 will be redrawn into two fresh groups of 4.

Our main sectional group contains; Clydebank, Maryhill, Rossvale, Shettleston, Vale of Clyde, Vale of Leven and Yoker.

For season 2018/19 and 2019/20 we have been drawn in a group containing;

Maryhill

Rossvale

Shettleston

These sectional group fixtures will take place over one week at the beginning of the season on the 28th July, 30th July and 1st August (Sat, Mon, Wed). We play Maryhill at home on Saturday 28th, Shettleston away on Monday 30th and are at home to Rossvale on Wednesday the 1st of August.

The winner of our section and the winner from the other mini section in our group will then meet in the second round of the competition.

Other competition NEWS…

The Scottish Junior Cup will kick off on September 15th, with the second round scheduled 2 weeks later on September 29th.

The West of Scotland Cup will continue and Pollok have been drawn to play away at Ardrossan Winton Rovers. This match is currently scheduled for November 10th.

The Central League Cup will not go ahead this season.
