Looking at this level of Scottish football from afar, it seems some players would rather play juniors football than in the 'leagues' why would that be. Down here in England, playing league football is the aim for most players. Is it just that there is more money at the lower levels, and does the league not have more prestige?
You need to remember, all junior sides are non league but not all non league sides are junior, most are senior.
Highland league Lowland league West of Scotland league South of Scotland East of Scotland North calidonian league The new Midlands League
Are all still senior football
Almost all players who are junior are so because they aren't good enough for senior,
Money is a massive draw in nonleague, the clubs aren't as heavily monitored when it comes to money so have alot of "spare cash", also don't have the same sort of financial burdens as league clubs, no need for stewards, ambulance, security even any sort of safety certificate for grounds, no need for floodlights saves on electricity. They don't have the same problems selling alcohol at games league sides do
Alot of players are paid there wage and then given a brown envelope on the side.
