ELGIN City’s chairman fears league reconstruction plans could leave the club ‘playing for nothing’ in their current campaign.
Proposals were put forward this week to merge the SPL and SFL to create a three division, 12-12-18 structure with the possibility of the new set-up coming into force next season.
All SFL clubs – with the exception of the newco Rangers who are currently associate members – will meet on January 31 to discuss the way forward and a vote will be imminent after the talks.
Graham Tatters said the subject will be top of the agenda at a club meeting on Monday, and revealed he may invite supporters to give their views.
"I don’t want to say too much until we know more, but the worry is we would be playing for nothing just now if they bring this structure in for the start of next season," Tatters told the ‘Scot’. "We don’t want this campaign to be a waste of time.
Should the new proposals – which were unveiled after a meeting at Hampden on Monday – be accepted by clubs, 12-team Premier Division and Championship divisions would be formed along with an 18-team National League, all governed by a promotion and relegation system.
The top two tiers would split into three leagues of eight after 22 matches, playing a further 14 games to decide the title winners and who moved up or down the divisions.
Under the current proposed structure, Elgin could play in the 18-team National League next season alongside all of their fellow Division 3 teams from this term, including Rangers.
