Scottish Football Association To Vote On Tough Sectarianism, Racism Rules

THE LOWDOWN: In Glasgow, Michael Grant reported the SFA will hold its "annual general meeting on Tuesday and the 93 members will be asked to agree the creation of the Scottish Lowland Football League as part of wider efforts to introduce a pyramid structure for the national game." The Lowland League "would be the southern equivalent of the Highland League and the champions of each division would playoff at the end of each campaign, with the winners of that tie playing off against the team who had finished bottom of the Third Division in order to claim the 42nd place in the Scottish League." Any team that drops out of the Third Division "would play in either the Highland or Lowland league the following season," with the geographical boundary of the two divisions altered a little each year depending on the locality of the "relegated" club (HERALD SCOTLAND, 6/9).
