Lowland and East of Scotland Under-20 Development League

The Watt’s Under-20 side joined the East of Scotland Under-20 League in its first season of operation.  The League has now been incorporated into the Lowland and East of Scotland Under-20 Development League. The League is mainly composed of the Under-20 sides of Lowland League clubs, although SPFL side Edinburgh City has retained its membership from the time it was in the Lowland League and two South of Scotland League clubs, Mid Annandale and recent entrants Bonnyton Thistle, are also included.

After having performed very well in this high-quality competition the previous season, finishing in fourth place in a league of thirteen, the Watt, under captain Harry Barclay, sensationally won the League last season, finishing with 51 points to head off the Cumbernauld Colts team, which came with a late spurt to finish second.  Spartans, Whitehill Welfare, University of Stirling and Edinburgh City – fine sides all – occupied the next four places.

Winning this League was the greatest achievement to date of any Heriot-Watt team.  The Club thanks all the players who gave so much commitment and effort to achieving such a fantastic result.

With lots of new entrants to the East of Scotland League, it is unclear at the moment what the format will be for the new season, but the situation should become clear soon.
