Last updated : 30 April 2014 By Queens Mad




A total of seven clubs applied for membership of the league which will have promotion and relegation next season with the champions having a chance to compete in play-offs for a place in the SPFL.

The announcement was made recently that the two clubs, BSC Glasgow and East of Scotland Premier League side Edinburgh Uni had been elected to play in the league next season.

Seven clubs in total had applied for membership for next season and as a result of a selection process the Lowland League confirmed that only two had been selected.

League chairman Andrew Waddell said, “The Board looked carefully at all the applications and decided that BSC Glasgow and the University of Edinburgh met our requirements most. It was a tough decision for the Board as each applicant was assessed on its own merit.

“It’s very encouraging that so many clubs are aspiring to play in our League and have all started to take steps to achieve club licensing, I am hopeful that the clubs who were not elected this time continue to work towards achieving their license and I am sure they will look to get elected next season.”

BSC Glasgow spokesperson Stephen Prince said “We are absolutely delighted that we have been elected to play in the Scottish Sun Lowland League. Today’s announcement is a wonderful piece of news, we look forward to building a very strong team that can go on and compete in the League.

“We are grateful for the opportunity to be part of this wonderful set-up. It’s great to be part of history in Scottish Football as the Pyramid system comes into play this season.”
