Hearts, Hibs & OF Reserves in Lower League?

Post by Sat31March1928 » Sat Sep 18, 2010 8:31 am

Both Old Firm clubs, along with Hearts and Hibernian, are planning to field reserve teams in the third tier of Scottish football as early as next season as part of a blueprint to restructure the game in Scotland. The Scottish Premier League is working on a proposal, which could have wide-ranging ramifications, to put before clubs to vote on next year.

This has been talked about for years, even back as far as when there were only two divisions. I endorse Mr. Meffen's view on this.

Was it not at the insistance of the OF that the reserve league was scrapped?

Celtic still have a reserve team and they certainly did not want it scrapped

Would down grade the Scottish League, think it would be better if they ran teams in their local junior leagues or as for Hibs and Hearts join the Eof S
