Everyone at the club is hugely disappointed at the postponement of all Scottish football matches due to the Coronavirus pandemic however the health of the players and management at the club as well as the wider community must always be a priority. As a club, nothing is more important than public safety and the wellbeing of our players and our fans.
Scottish Amateur FA Statement
As of today, all matches and friendlies within the Scottish Amateur FA, under the jurisdiction of the Scottish FA, will be suspended until further notice.
The Scottish FA Board made its decision in the interests of the health and safety of players, match officials, staff, supporters and the general public.
Ian Maxwell, Scottish FA Chief Executive, said, “Since the guidance outlined by governments last night we have been engaged in extensive dialogue to clarify the position and implications of that guidance for Scottish football.
“Today’s announcement is made in the interests of public health but, equally, the health and safety of players, match officials, and staff across the game. This is of paramount importance as the country enters the ‘delay’ phase of the coronavirus pandemic.
“It is also why the Scottish FA is compelled to ensure that the suspension is cascaded through the non-professional and grassroots games until further notice.”
Training – The decision to suspend or continue training is at each club’s discretion at this time, however clubs must ensure to follow the current medical guidance issued by the Government and the Health Authorities when making this decision.
Friendly Matches – Under no circumstances will friendly matches be permitted as this is included in the directive from the Scottish FA in relation to matches.
