The East of Scotland FA/Scottish Lowland Football League Under 20 setup is bracing itself for its biggest season yet, after a summer expansion. Joining the setup for the first time are Mid Annandale, Bonnyton Thistle and Burntisland Shipyard. Mid Annandale are an established South of Scotland League team at senior level, whereas Bonnyton are due to make their bow this year in the same competition. Burntisland Shipyard's first team play in the East of Scotland League. All three clubs have been strong performers in the SYFA ranks in recent years, with Mid Annandale sweeping the board in the D&GYFDA Under 17 age group, Bonnyton racking up a number of Scottish Cup successes and Burntisland excelling in the AFYFC.
