I dont think it was airdrie that went bust It was clyde bank, I do think they should allow promotion and relegation from scotland division 3.Yes a lot of Junior teams(Scots non-league) in the central belt around Glasgow & Edinburgh are probably better than some of the teams in the 3rd Div,but there is no automatic promotion or relegation,only when the SL is expanded,do any of the leading lights get a chance.
There was a lot of resentment at Gretna getting a league spot(after Airdrieonians going bust) because they had played all of their football in English non league(Unibond 1st Division) & played in the English FA cup 1st round(against Rochdale)
I have been to scotand a lot because my nan and grandad lived up there so I visited them a lot in inverness and as my grandad supported inverness I watched them a few times and since then I have been looking at scotish non league and scottish league,
You must remember the three Inverness clubs then before the amalgamation (not favoured by many) to form Inverness Caledonian Thistle? I recall spending some time going to visit Inverness Clachnacuddin (still in existence); Inverness Thistle and Inverness Caledonians. Must have been back in the 1970s.
Called into Caledonian Thistle's ground a couple of years back. Managed to have a good look round. I bet it's cold there in the winter with the wind whistling off the Moray Firth. You get a great view of the ground (look right into it) when coming south into Inverness over the Kessock Bridge.
