To kick-off the new Down The Divisions podcast, Gareth and Paul discuss how the coronavirus shutdown is affecting clubs lower down the leagues.
Junior football is set for its biggest shakeup in its 134-year history this summer - and ahead of Tuesday's deadline for clubs from the west juniors section to apply for the new West of Scotland League, Paul takes us through what this really means for the game.
While we're all missing our football, singer songwriter Sam Speirs joins us to talk about how he's used his time in self-isolation to write a song about what it means to be a fan of Whitburn Juniors. Hear the song at the end of the show or at https://youtu.be/9vgVDMg3NAA
