The Scottish Football Association have announced that all football in Scotland played under their jurisdiction is to be postponed indefinitely in response to the Coronavirus Pandemic.
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.”
Scone Thistle FC fully support this decision which has been made to safeguard the health of supporters, players, volunteers and coaching staff of all clubs. We will keep you informed of any plans to reinstate League fixtures as and when we hear them.
In the meantime, please continue to follow NHS advice on Coronavirus, stay safe, and wash your hands!
