JUNIOR football in the West of Scotland is about to have a massive shake-up.

Clubs voted by a margin of more than 4:1 in favour of changing the league structure from next season, 2018/19. The current Super League structure of a 12-team Premier Division, 14-team First Division and regionalised feeder leagues will be scrapped in favour four divisions of 16.

Following on from the professional leagues, the new divisions will be called the Premiership, Championship, League One and League Two.

Of the 12 sides in the Premier Division this season, 10 will be guaranteed a spot in the new Premiership with the bottom two facing a play-off.

It is good news for Clydebank next season as there will be no automatic relegation from the top flight next season.

There is now six teams in the Super League First next season that will have a chance at promotion, instead of three.

The top four teams in the Super League First Division will be automatically promoted with fifth and sixth playing-off against the bottom two Premier Division sides.

There will be no automatic relegation from the Super First either with the top three in the Ayrshire District League and the Central District First Division promoted to the new Championship.

The bottom two in the Super League First Division will play-off against the teams finishing fourth in the Ayrshire District League and the Central District First Division.

That means that there will be four promotion spots open to Yoker Athletic in the Central District First next season instead of the three that were previously available Fifth, sixth and seventh in the Ayrshire District League will join the two play-off losers and 11 Central District sides in the new League One with the rest being placed in League Two.

The motion was passed with a majority of 49 to 12 at the SJFA West AGM on Wednesday, June 28.

Arrangements for cup competitions will be decided in due course.
