ANDREW WADDELL, the chaiman of the Lowland League, is convinced new members Edinburgh University and Broomhill Sports Club Glasgow will prove the right choices after the pair were selected from applicants seeking a place for next season.

It was always expected the league would increase in size this year from its inaugural 12 teams, and Waddell, once one of Scotland's top referees, said: "It was a tough decision for the board as each applicant was assessed on its own merit.

"Its very encouraging that so many clubs are aspiring to play in our league and have all started to take steps to achieve club licensing."
