  1. Guessing the Aberdeenshire clubs will have to play their games behind closed doors? Hopefully the HL season gets to start though.
  2. This. Can’t see anything wrong with going to a NCL game providing social distancing is followed. Good luck chucking people out of public parks.
  3. That definitely makes sense, maybe worth bringing the Joint Response Groups attention to it? I don’t know whether they’re aligned with the SPFL or just the SFA though. Agree with you about the season ticket scenario - I actually had one for Brora last season, but haven’t heard anything about clubs offering them this season - maybe because of the uncertainty? Saying that though, clubs in the SLFL seem to be offering them. I think you’d get a lot of people willing to buy a season ticket if it made getting crowds back / going to support their clubs easier anyway. Plus season tickets are often better value then paying on the gate for every home game.
  4. Remember on Twitter that a lot of English non league fans / clubs started a #LetFansIn campaign that eventually caught the attention of the Sports Secretary Oliver Dowden. Just wondering if something similar is needed here? I don’t know if there’s a Scottish equivalent to try & reach out to, but something along those lines seems like it’d be worth a try - what do you guys think?

  6. This would be annoying - should be easy to social distance what with the size of Highland League grounds & the amount of people that go to the games. Safer as well, as it’s outside. Bit of common sense needed from the Government when it comes to our level of football 🤷🏻‍♂️
  7. Phew - I’m not fussed about missing out on friendlies, but definitely looking forward to going to league games, if at all possible.
  8. My apologies for being so one dimensional, but was just wondering if the delay on fans returning to sports stadia had any effect on the Highland League? I know the HL season isn’t due to start until October 17th, so I’m hoping that these further measures haven’t put a spanner in the works there.
  9. Had one last season - don’t think I’ve seen any news of HL clubs doing one this season though (makes sense with all the uncertainty around, to be fair)
  10. Just confirmation start date I think - haven’t seen the fixtures announced anywhere
  11. Don’t suppose you could ask him when the fixtures are coming out as well? Not that I’m greedy or anything 😂
  12. That’s what I’m hoping - noticed supporters of sides higher up (Scottish Premier etc) seem to be quite pessimistic about the return of fans next season, but I think the Highland League should be safe enough what with the lower crowd sizes / scope for social distancing etc. Can imagine the financial boost for helping HL clubs get COVID equipment / safety measures in place will be a massive help too.
  13. Random, but be interesting to see if the Highland League will still be allowed to start if Nicola Sturgeon announces tomorrow that restrictions will be in place like in England. Keeping my fingers crossed that fans will still be allowed to attend games at that level.
  14. Thanks for the replies @Ginaro & @FairWeatherFan, definitely makes a lot more sense in that case 😊
  15. Just noticed that the Lowland League are playing a full season. Sorry if this is a stupid question, but would you guys say rain / bad weather is worse in the Highlands? Not moaning about a shortened season, if I’m honest I’m just glad we’ve got a confirmed date to look forward to.
