I went to Caledonian Braves v Civil Service Strollers a few weeks ago and witnessed a very poor game. Probably no more than 15 from Edinburgh in a crowd of less than 100. At £5 in I'm not sure where the money comes from. I stuck it out for the full 90 unlike Sandy Clark in the 'second stand' who looked to have seen enough after 45.
The former junior teams are definitely coming and there is some good quality on view in the WoSFL. If Beith carry on as they have started I hope they get their licence sorted as another walkover for the EoSFL winners would be an embarrassment. I think whoever comes out of the the East or West will be a force the following year in the Lowland.
Looping back to the thread title, I think any TV money is a bonus and as others have said there is not a lot on offer outside of the top flight. At last count English National League visiting sides were only getting £1k before the BT Sport rebrand with home sides getting £5k.
A good opportunity for this young side to show what it is capable of to a wider audience.
