The Ayes Have It
The SFL clubs have voted for the merger with the SPL
It looks like the on-off merger of the SPL and SFL is back on after a meeting of SFL clubs today. It appears that the 22 votes for the motion to be carried were found with just one more club voting for the merger with 6 against. Winners of Division Three last season, Rangers did not have a vote as they are associate members of the SFA at the moment. The current league structure with remain in place after plans for a new 12-12-18 set-up were rejected back in April.SFA chief executive Stewart Regan had urged clubs to back the merger. Before the meeting he said: "If approved, it will allow us to take the game forward. What is important for us is to get a single league body, a fairer distribution of income, play-offs introduced to get some excitement and to put in the parachute payments and pyramid system that will drive the game forward."
