S11E63 Lower League Review

Posted on by K Kujawa

Good John is joined by Falkirk fan Alan, aka Air Force Wan, SFSA chairman Paul Goodwin, and two men of many clubs Ally Graham and Davie Irons in our review of the Championship to League Two campaign. Lower League expert Ally is still reeling at his predictions game defeat to the podcast team, he should take tips from Davie’s daughter Amy who’s been successful in beating the Sportscene pundits this season.

The lads discuss the season gone by for the 30 clubs outside the top tier. From the over-achievement of part time Arbroath pushing Kilmarnock almost all the way in the Championship, through the PR circuses at Falkirk and Raith Rovers, to the fight for SPFL status for Cowdenbeath. Everything is covered in what’s been another memorable season with some great stories, and also some worrying times for others.

We do go off in a tangent by discussing the development of young players caused by the curtailing of youth academies within regions and clubs forced by budget constraints. We agree that this will be worth a podcast in its own further down the line, as will a league restructuring podcast as we were unanimous in that playing four times per season is too much.

We round off with predictions on who will come through the playoffs either remaining in their respective division or getting promoted to the league above.
