  1. Im pretty sure its the Scottish Amateur National side that represents.
  2. I expect all leagues will throw up some unexpected results this season. Teams r going into games decimated and its going to be a long season with Covid related call offs a regular occurance. If we get a harsh winter we could easily be playing into July!
  3. Having watched Whitburn on tuesday night theyve got more to worry about than having AR at there games!
  4. If they dont allow Amateur teams to play in tier 3 there will be no football until the summer at best.
  5. Excellent post by Burnieman! We all want football back but there comes a point where you have to look at it and say is it really worth it? Clubs could end up in serious trouble through continuing to play and fast forward to the end of season and if ur Clubs been relegated playing through crisis, there will be a few unhappy campers!!
  6. 100% . It should be looked at now as a serious option but it probably wont!! Dont see any competitive football at this level now until spring. Amateur football has been hung out to dry and shown exactly where it ranks in importance by the powers that be, SportsScotland , the SFA and the SG.
  7. Majority of Clubs at that level are barely even able to cover expenses the now. Theyve bluffed there way into being able to continue to play. Theres no way they should be allowed to continue under the tier 4 restrictions.
  8. 2/3 wins against teams that have already changed manager, woohoo!! It should be a tight league its full of professionals!!
  9. Be carefull what u wish for , u might still end up there going by ur recent results!!
  10. So u think its ok if they have to stop playing and the rest of the teams carry on?
  11. A would say thats quite an easy fix , instead of taking 15 minutes of a break at ht take 10 or even 5. If coaches are organised and ready with the teamtalk which I'm sure most will be then dont see that being an issue. No different from when someone goes does injured and theres a lengthy stoppage.
  12. Im pretty sure that will have been a wind up mate!
  13. Thats just bonkers if the case! Im pretty sure most teams will have attempted to follow protocols and implemented a new way of training but probably realised that not everyone was doing it and nobody was enforcing it so these 'rules' would have been breached. Dont see how there gonna open it back up to small group sessions again so that means itll be full contact 'all in' training. Will that be on the 24th , im not sure now? The Government & JRG's next move/advice is one that will have massive bearing on whether or no we have some kind of season to look forward. If we dont get competitive football up and running in October then imo we can forget it and start planning for summer football next year.
  14. Just dont do what? Train? Yeah that probably should have been the original decision then it would have saved having to suspend it again.
  15. Alot has been said about teams breaking the rules , not following guidelines etc but lets be honest here, it is very difficult to 100% follow them down to the letter of the law especially at our level. There are guidelines and 'rules' in my workplace that are not getting adhered to on a daily basis so i hink alot of people need to stop taking the moral high ground on this 1 as it near on impossible to get through daily life without breaching the measures at some point! For me it was inevitable that some teams would do there own thing and hopefully this suspension wont go on any longer than the 24th when hopefully contact training can resume. In hinesight maybe the government shouldnt have bothered with the small group training guidelines and just went straight to normal training.
  16. Interested to hear how teams are planning for the restart assuming leagues get the go ahead in October. I see on twitter some teams have already began there pre season a few weeks ago? It seems the majority of ammie teams have been training but have all started a pre season schedule or are you building up to that and then kicking on from start of next month? Think most players would agree that pre season is not the best part of a season so not sure most would be up for a 10-12 week schedule. Also do we think we will be allowed local friendlies from the 11th of sept and do we honestly think we will get the go ahead in October?
  17. Going by some reports there are some teams that are back already. Juniors been told training to provisionally resume early August with leagues starting in October. You would think Amateurs would be the same, hopefully there is some kind of announcement this week so Clubs no where they stand.
  18. Think we are a good while away from competitive games tbh but do think they could allow training session's to take place. Even if it was just once a week the now it would be better than nothing. Thats been 3 months now and with every week that passes there is a serious risk of losing alot of people young & old to the grassroots game. Atleast if teams were allowed to put on a session you would be getting ur players in and getting some kind of interaction with them. Boys have been out running/cycling etc but its not the same and eventually they will get fed up doing that aswell. Then after a month it could be looked at again and maybe increase the number of sessions allowed.
  19. Understandable concerns raised there however they risks will b all around us for the forseeable future unless people are never going to leave the house again. Life has to go on and if people use there heads they can eliminate some of the risk of catching/spreading it. Thats said how do we bring Grassroots football back with social distancing in play? Is it even possible, will facilities even be available for teams to use? These are the kind of challenges that will face Grassroots football over the next couple of months. Id really like to see football back in august if not before it plays a massive part in alot of peoples lives so hopefully we get a green light for atleast some kind of training to be allowed and then we can look at tackling how to get games played further down the line.
  20. Crazy feet , I think this a valid shout. We're potentially faced with a situation of no football this year or at best nearer the end of the year. If we dont get the go ahead until say into winter time, how are u going to start a season then? I think the Central league were right not to rush into any decision until they have more info from the SAFA.
