  1. When will we realise that our destiny is in our hands if we approach the union with a united front. clubs can make there own decisions to make our completion the best for players and all clubs I can’t emphasis enough how important THE GAME is. on another note the referee shortage could be addressed by going back to neutral touch judges try going with one with either club supplying the other one

  3. What is interesting about the table of ‘players used’ is that the four city-based teams – EA, Heriots, Hawks, GHA – are utilising much bigger player pools than the three clubs based in the towns in the borders – Hawick, Selkirk and Jedburgh.
    The three teams in the middle of the table are ‘mid-range’ in terms of city-proximity.
    Currie and Musselburgh are near to, but not in, Edinburgh; and Troon, arguably, has a similar relationship to Glasgow – it is within commuting distance.

    So the geographical locations of the teams maybe explain their relative access to player pools; for example, city teams can access university students in a way that borders towns perhaps cannot.

    However there may be another factor at work here, and that is the relative loyalty of the players to their team. Do players in borders still commit to turn out week-in week-out through the season for their town team, in a way that city dwellers don’t? Are there many more leisure options in the city? Do they not feel the same level of commitment to their team if they don’t ‘belong’ to it, in the sense of having grown up in it? Or is it simply another expression of Brian Gilbert’s famous maxim when he coached in Glasgow ‘When the going get’s tough, the tough go ski-ing’?
    There is a PHD waiting for someone to unravel the implications of player pools!

  4. Thanks for generating player use stats. Most interesting.

    I have a memory that Heriots used 55 players the last time they won the Premiership?

    Probably shows the attritional nature of the modern game.

    More worryingly is the number of pnsyers required to get teams out. We estimated 80 for 2 teams which seems about right.
