Scottish Amateur Football News can exclusively reveal the Strathclyde Saturday Morning League will resume competitive games on October 17th. At a meeting of clubs by zoom conference call, Match Secretary Craig Burton announced divisional fixtures will commence on the third Saturday of next month.
He said “This gives clubs more time for friendlies and training after the long lay off, and also even more importantly, be able to secure venues for games, given the lack of park being available especially within the Glasgow area”
At the meeting clubs were given information on the match day protocols required for games to be played. Stuart McKenzie and Andy Bryant had attended a special meeting of SAFA leagues to be briefed, and were passing on the info. Stuart advised clubs “Hard as these guidelines may be, you must implement them if we want games to remain exempt from normal covid activities.”
He also said Police could attend to ensure protocols are being followed. As a footnote to this briefing, Andy Bryant can report that the police indeed did visit a fixture on Saturday, found the club to be fully compliant, and left the venue.
The warning is there for all clubs to ensure they most importantly stay safe.
