The East of Scotland Football Association held a meeting to discuss the implications of the recent lockdown restrictions . With the SFA informing clubs to carry on playing under the instruction from the Scottish Government to allow us to start the season , there has been no directive from the governing body to change the playing schedule . Fixtures will continue to be played (weather permitting ) as scheduled . What has been decided is that no friendlies will be sanctioned until further notice and travelling officials should be kept down to a minimum . We sincerely hope that everybody stays safe and we can get through these very trying times together . Please stay safe and hopefully with the vaccines now being administered the situation will improve greatly early in 2021 .
