Following the request that East of Scotland Football League clubs vote, last week , on a board proposal to end the season prematurely , the EOSFL informed us of the outcome this afternoon , and the proposal was carried overwhelmingly .
The second part of the vote was to award points per game averages , which resulted in Boness United being crowned champions of the Central Taxi’s East of Scotland Premier League and no relegation . We congratulate our friends at Boness United on their achievement . We must express our disappointment at such a competitive league season not being played to a close ,with not only ourselves , but other clubs still in touching distance of the league leaders .We do respect the decision given the current situation .
Next season the premier league will be increased for one season to 18 with Lothianthistlehutchievale and Tynecastle being promoted .If Boness United gain entry to the Lowland league the third best conference side will be promoted.
Next season relegation will return the Premier League to 16 teams for season 2020/2021 .
Everybody in the football family realise that the game is given perspective with family and friends losing loved ones and becoming seriously ill . Our hearts go out to all who have suffered during these testing times . Not only with the virus but the effects of the lockdown restrictions with family and friends not able to mix or indeed be afforded the chance to say farewell to anyone who have sadly passed away .
The future remains uncertain as to when football will return , but in the meantime , please stay safe and well . If anyone requires help , please do contact the club . As you support us , we will support you .
Thank you JIm
