Twenty four hours after dropping the Colts idea into the equation SFL chief David Longmuir believes that plans for reconstruction are doomed to fail.
Longmuir was one of the three architects of the 12-12-18 plan but while Stewart Regan and Neil Doncaster have kept their thoughts private their counterpart at the SFL has recently been providing a running commentary on the plans.
On Tuesday SFL clubs met at Hampden to discuss the plans but later in the day Longmuir sent out an email to member clubs suggesting that Colt teams from two Glasgow clubs be introduced to the SFL.
Speaking to STV Longmuir admitted: “It may well be the case that league reconstruction won’t happen before next season but it is clear we have to get this right.
“Everyone has their own agenda. I am looking at this objectively and now is the time to put ideas forward.
“My view is an objective one and the Colts team idea was laid out in the McLeish Review.
“All I am trying to do here is stimulate debate. We are going through a huge round of deliberation. All I am doing is putting another option forward.
“We have to be very clear on what’s right for the SFL and also for the whole of the Scottish game.
“I have to look at how we bring the fans back. With that, I am looking at all aspects of improving our game.”
After hearing of Longmuir’s latest proposal Raith Rovers chairman Turnbull Hutton said: “Colt teams came up at a recent SFL meeting and it was quickly punted into the long grass.”
