The club would consider a new West of Scotland Lesgue proposed by the Lowland League after the SJFA failed to agree a strategy to join the pyramid system.

They said in a statement: "Two years ago, member clubs of the Scottish Junior Football Association (SJFA) overwhelmingly supported the concept of junior clubs joining the SFA’s pyramid system for Scottish football.

"Following the apparent breakdown of negotiations at the SFA’s Pyramid Working Group last week, the committee of Whitletts Victoria have re-affirmed our desire for the Club to participate in the pyramid system.

"Our preference remains that the existing SJFA West Region, with its’ league structure forming the void in the West of Scotland, would move en masse into the pyramid structure but this is now looking increasingly unlikely. "Therefore the Club will pursue all avenues available to it to join the SFA pyramid structure with a view to applying for our National Club License once we are in a position to move into our proposed new home ground.

"Whitletts Victoria has been a member of the SJFA since our formation in 1944 and it is a history of which we are proud. We hope that the current impasse can be overcome and that we can remain a junior club within the pyramid but whether that happens or not, the future of the Club lies within the pyramid structure."
