Fans of lower division football in Scotland are to be allocated their own dedicated page in an expanded sports section in the Saturday edition of The Scotsman.
Sports editor Donald Walker has been given four extra pages to work with, bringing the section to 24 pages. And of those four, one is to be given over to stories from each of the three Scottish Football League divisions.
Since Mike Gilson took over as Editor of The Scotsman 18 months ago, sport’s Tuesday-Friday page allocations has increased. The paper has long produced a separate sports section on a Monday. The extra pagination on a Saturday also provides Walker the opportunity to provide more previews of the English Premiership.
Last week, Ian Rodgers, former Scottish sports editor of the Press Association, joined The Scotsmanâ€™s sports desk, as a sub-editor.
