IT’S a busy week for Scottish football with several crucial votes taking place that will shape the future of the game.

Regulations that will try to cut-out sectariansim and racism will be voted on at today’s SFA’s annual general meeting and SFA members will also vote on the creation of a new feeder division, provisionally titled the ‘Lowland League’.

It is expected that promotion and relegation will open up between the Third Division and the proposed fifth tier through a play-off but that is not likely to come into effect until the 2014/15 season.

And tomorrow will see the Scottish Football League consider proposals put forward by the SPL on restructuring all four professional senior leagues.

On the table is a merger of the Scottish Football League with the Scottish Premier League to for a new body called the Scottish Professional Football League (SPFL).

This merger, if approved will deliver a single league body and redistribution of finances across all 42 senior clubs.

SFA chief executive Stewart Regan said : “There has to be a meritocracy in the bottom tier of the senior game and the pyramid will provide greater competition.”
