Scottish Junior football has come up with the tweet of the year with three days left in the 2019 calendar

The Junior’s is a unique brand of football, in England it might be termed Non-League, on the continent Semi-Professional but in Scotland it will always be known as The Juniors, in reference to Junior Professionals.

Reports suggest that three Renfrew players, two from Petershill and a member of their coaching staff were sent off before the players started to brawl.

Across pockets of Ayrshire, Fife and the Lothians the Junior game is in great health with clubs like Auchinleck Talbot capable of making extensive runs in the ‘real’ Scottish Cup.

Petershill are based in the Springburn area of Glasgow and are one of the great names at this level of the game with Junior Cup wins in 1951 and 1956 when 50,000 fans would attend the final at Hampden.

Today Petershill were literally in action away to Renfrew in the West Region Championship.

Junior football is notorious for its no-holds-barred approach with Police often on stand-by when the biggest towns in Ayrshire lock horns.

What happened in the Renfrew Rammy has still to be discovered but whatever occurred the uniquely Scottish level of the game will continue in it’s own way, rammy’s and all through 2020 and beyond.
