ESCA Leagues 2021 – Update
We have been working hard behind the scenes trying to shape a number of things for the coming season. EPL fixtures are now largely complete and we are now working on draft fixtures, Covid rules and tweaks to existing rules and constitution for 2021.
As part of this, we have looked at the leagues and are happy to announce that we now know the make up of leagues Championship to Div 5. These are as below.
|Edin Accies 2|
|Stewart’s Melville 2|
|Tranent & PV|
|Drummond Trinity 2|
|Edin Uni Staff|
|Drummond Trinity 3|
|Holy Cross 2|
|Stewart’s Melville 3|
The league season will run 15 weeks, therefore not everyone will play everyone twice. The 3 ‘missing’ games being treated as if they were simply lost to weather, as in any other season.
Divs 6 and 7 are subject to some further discussion with respect to a single larger league, or two smaller ones, given the number of teams between them. The teams that will play in Divs 6 or 7 or a combined league will be as blow (note that teams are listed alphabetically):
|Drummond Trinity 4|
|Edinburgh South 2|
|Kirk Brae 2|
|Stew Mel 4|
|Tranent & PV 2|
We will discuss Divs 6 and 7 at the next committee meeting, scheduled for the coming week. We are still planning on getting draft fixtures out by end of April.
Note that we are yet to receive updated guidance from sportscotland / CS, therefore we are still very much tentatively working towards a league start on 22nd May. We will confirm this as soon as we have updated guidance.
As always, any questions, please contact us and thanks for your patience.
