Reconstruction Meetings Continue

June 1, 2013

SFLTHIS week’s Lennox Herald has another article on SFL/SPL League Reconstruction, and the issues that will involve the Sons, one way or another.

In ‘Dumbarton FC caught up in reconstruction concerns’, Lorraine Waddell writes: “Crunch talks on the possible expulsion of First Division clubs including Dumbarton from the Scottish Football League were being held [on 30 May].

“Clubs in the Second and Third Divisions are understood to be opposed to plans by the 10 SFL1 teams to break away and form an SPL2.”

It is reported that DFC have again declined to comment.

The report quotes the Sons Supporters Trust statement on Reconstruction moves from earlier this month and last month.

Chairman Brian Payne said: “The Trust has made clear its commitment to a reform of Scottish football that involves all 42 professional clubs, a fairer distribution of financial and other resources, larger divisions, transparent governance, the restoring of proper competition in the game, a pyramid system, community benefit, and a decisive place for fans in the running of the game at all levels.”

A formal SFL vote on Reconstruction plans will take place on 12 June 2013. We will keep you up-to-date on developments.

Comments from Sons supporters and Trust members are welcome here.
