SPL CEO Neil Doncaster Needs To Justify 24-Team League Proposal As Questions Arise
Published November 21, 2012
TAKING ITS TIME: The SCOTSMAN reported the SFL will take its time "before forming an opinion on the SPL’s call to pursue an expansion of the top flight in Scotland" as it has "still to receive a detailed communication on the matter." SPL Operations Dir David Thomson said, "The issue is much more complex than just the size of the leagues as issues such as equitable governance, an all through distribution model, player development, stadium criteria, youth and reserve team football would all need to be considered. At the moment we know what our plan covers in these areas, but we have no detail on how the SPL view these issues. We will make comment on the SPL plans once we know more" (SCOTSMAN, 11/20).
