After a meeting with the SFA on Thursday past we were informed that warm up matches can be played from the 12th of September and we have lined up a number of warm up games with a indicative date of mid October for the league to kick off . We have Bonnyrigg Rose ,Craigroyston , Stirling University ,Leith Athletic and Gala Fairydean lined up for games . The arrangement for these games are difficult to say the least with players being asked to arrive stripped ready to play the match and leave with kit on after the match with dressing rooms and showers at this time still not being permitted to be used . Not only that but Government guidelines still will not allow any spectators in the stadiums for these matches and possibly into the start of official games should they start as per predictions, with strictly only players and officials allowed . These directions can change for the better in coming week’s and can also become even more strict if the pandemic starts to peak again .We all realise that arrangement cant go on as clubs have bills to pay and can not sustain any lengthy period of time without supporters the lifeblood of our game at this level . Not only for the community but the well being of the supporters who look forward to their local football match every Saturday. Please stay safe and hopefully in the coming weeks the government will allow some spectators back into grounds .
