Scottish Lowland League announce expansion


The Lowland Football League has announced that two new clubs have been accepted as league members ahead of next season.

Seven clubs applied for membership to the league for next season, with BSC Glasgow and Edinburgh University successfully awarded places in the competition for next season.

League Chairman Andrew Waddell said: “The Board looked carefully at all the applications and decided that BSC Glasgow and the University of Edinburgh met our requirements most. It was a tough decision for the Board as each applicant was assessed on its own merit.

“It’s very encouraging that so many clubs are aspiring to play in our League and have all started to take steps to achieve club licensing, I am hopeful that the clubs who were not elected this time continue to work towards achieving their license and I am sure they will look to get elected next season.”

Spartans were crowned inaugural Lowland League champions this season and next season’s champions will participate in a playoff match against the Highland Football League champions to see who will obtain promotion to SPFL League Two.
