Stop any plans for Colt or B teams being admitted into the SPFL

This petition had 74 supporters

There is increasing speculation regarding the admittance of Colt or B teams into the professional leagues in Scotland, we, the signatories, do not believe this will benefit the progression of youth development for all Scottish clubs. Scottish football fans are passionate followers of the sport and would like to see the active encouragement of youth development to ensure our clubs are sustainable and are ultimately competitive but we do not believe that "colt" teams are the way forward and would like to see alternatives explored. The plans also seem to reference and obsess with the two largest supported clubs in Scotland which no way reflects the U20's development league when a number of more provincial clubs have found success when in fact the youth team of Ibrox has continually failed to be competitive against youth teams which suggests admitting them to the senior leagues would provide no benefit to our sport. Supporters of this petition are also encouraged to contact their clubs to voice their concern over the plans as after all the clubs employ the SPFL to regulate the leagues, not the other way round.
