CELTIC will find out early next month if they will continue to have a B team in the Scottish Lowland League next season after a successful first season pilot.

Bonnyrigg Rose took the championship in March with Celtic sitting in fourth place at the moment.

The deal at the start of the season for both Glasgow clubs was a one and done scenario with nothing agreed beyond the end of this current campaign.

As we head towards the end of the season – the league will get together on April 4th to vote on whether they want Celtic B to continue to field a team in the competition.

The champions wrote on their website:

‘At the last General Meeting of the SLFL, all existing member clubs have been asked to consider whether we want to continue with the principle of B teams in the league. A General Meeting will be held virtually on 4 April 2022 at which a vote will be taken. If clubs vote in favour of continuing with guest clubs it will then be for the Board to review the terms and conditions and make any necessary arrangements.’

It will be interesting to see what the consensus is and if the bhoys have a future in the league.

Celtic will have a good indication if they will be invited back already. I’d imagine plenty of conversations have gone on behind the scenes over the past 8 months as the season has progressed.

There was a lot of opposition to Celtic’s entry into the Lowland League last season but it was voted through in the end.

Celtic have done well under the watch of Tommy McIntyre and the development of the players who have got meaningful game time will be invaluable going forward.

Tommy has been playing a very similar style to the first team to ensure if any of the bhoys get a call-up, they can seamlessly slot into Ange’s side.
