Hearts of Beath statement 

Appropriate to post this message,,, we are having problems now with losing players, injuries and other issues thus affecting players availability,, we have had to call off today which we have apologized to both home club and league,,, we are having a committee meeting Monday to consider the way forward and the clubs future after nearly 30 years,, we will then meet with players on Tuesday,,, this has not been an easy decision by myself or other member of club committee,, we will endeavor to see out the season as we well know impact on other clubs in particular those like us it bottom end and therefore don't want to enforce relegation to others due to our position and do apologize to those it may effect. We will try and get things sorted asap to avoid this happening... we are at this point looking to see if we can bring in another few boys to play out the season with us to help avoid us not completing our commitment to seeing out the season. We are also now actively seeking new manager/coaches who would be willing to come in and help us thru this difficult period,, anyone interested in any way helping out please contact myself or Derek..  Again apologies to those that this may affect including my committee, coaches and players,,, other clubs and league members and executive committee....Tony Smith (Chairman)

i know how hard it is to keep teams going and I hope you can see out the season not just cause it may affect my club but you have to think about your own club. the league really need to look at the rules which says 2 teams must be relegated as in this day and age teams fold all the time. there could be the ludicrous position where 3 premier teams fold and 2 relegated to be replaced by the top 5 in first division, which could result in teams ending in the premier league that don't really think they are ready. what happens they struggle at start of season so fold and we have the same again. what would happen if a club were going to get relegated decided to fold before there last game thus taking another team down then reapplying for next season and starting in the same league as they would have been if relegated. any way a bit off a rant good luck to hearts off beath great guys there who put a lot in to there club hopefully yous survive.

Rules are rules pal 

we all know how hard it is .... if hob do fold we will only have 3 games left as still to play them twice .. also affects the top of the league as am sure they drew with am soccer 

Farcical but what can ye do about it 

 

maybe having a cup to play for after january might keep players at a club but hob and ylum were out all the cups before december and players dont have any incentives and just leave to join other teams 

 

ps hope they pull together 

 

true fact

The point regards the cup is a great suggestion. With all the cups being played so early in the season many teams have nowt to play for which means that some players making the effort to be there.

Surely it would be sensible to start at least one cup in March.

Hope HOB get things sorted. Some great guys there.

This should always be the reason everybody plays each other one before xmas.. Ylum twice to play them with 5/6 games to go is absolute brutal. Something has to change and fast.

Hopefully HOB can get the players and management team in asap :ok:

Am I right in thinking the Minto Lounge (Sundays) are joining our set up next season as Lochgelly United and that a number of Ylum and HoB currently play on for both teams.
 

How is that going to affect the two sides when these players have a choice to make? Certainly could put HoB, if not Ylum as well, in a more difficult position?

Ylum will be sound bud.. myself and committee will work our socks of to improve the team no just put a team on the park and keep us up the top challenging..  if boys do go to that league should either be about finished or pish.. Haha only joking already wished grieg good luck.. ..  loyalty is all teams ask of players when they sign

We a the Minto currently have 4 Ylum players, 2 who play every week at them,1 Kelty player and 2 bowhill players. Majority of our squad stopped playing sats this year to commit to us knowing what the long term plan was.

 

we are planning on none of those boys staying and any that decide to will be a bonus. 

We have had a core of 14 boys who have been at us for the last 4 years. During that time they have moved around different Saturday teams. Hopefully their loyalty continues into next year with us

No hob boys at the minto now. Problem with us is we have lost boys to other teams playing at a higher level. And some players commitment, injuries and work have lead to us having only 12/13 boys available most weeks. And Saturday we only had 10 available with 2 struggling to make kick off. We will work hard to see the season out so other teams don’t get affected.
