New Year Start Date Looming For Glasgow Clubs

Clubs in the GCFA are being to consider the options of a delay to starting the new season until January – which would allow for more training sessions and friendlies by way of preparation for competitive fixtures.

With the Greater Glasgow and Clyde area currently in Tier 3 amid speculation that will change to even tougher restrictions (Tier-4) from Friday the League Committee has held a discussion about the way forward for season 2020-2021.

As daily Covid-19 cases continue to rise, the possibility of allowing games to go ahead in the Premier set-up and at Divisional levels before the end of Decenber are deminishing.

The GCFA could follow the lead of the Scottish Amateur Football League, who this month revealed they would delay their campaign until Saturday, 9th January, but would allow their clubs the opportunity to organise start-back friendlies.
