Presumably because they were the two highest finishing non league clubs last season who weren't promoted?

So, Irn Bru qualification may be our consolation prize next season if we don't go up.


Very puzzling. My initial hunch was that neither side would *want* to take part. But equally it's hard to believe they were required by the conference to participate, since I can't imagine they'd be able (or want) to force two clubs into a tournament that others weren't required to play in.

And irmt's not obvious what the incentive would be for the Scottish teams. Can't imagine Borehamwood are a massive draw north of the border.
