It will be interesting. Hope all their players and staff are ok though.

As we all do, just reading the BBC post about the clubs, what an absolute shambles our governing authorities are, didn’t realise there’s also a £40K suspended fine hanging over, you really couldn’t make it up. If you apply what happened to St M & K they will forfeit the game with a 0-3 score line.

Interesting point.

As flexible furlough is allowed I think it will be okay but the employee has to be on the payroll on or before 30 th October.

Gary Holt will not be eligible

There is no way Holt was appointed just to be put on furlough.

I would imagine he will be straight into his role planning for the future and no doubt liaising with the Rawlins re their plans for the club.

They’ve appealed it, the thing is with the Celtic thing they reckon they have grounds for the punishment to be rescinded and tbf they have or it’s going to be double standards yet again

What’s the ruling ? Do Raith forfeit the match ??

Dont know the ruling as SPFL seem to make rules up as they go along but guessing if and say if we have followed the protocols there would be no sanction

If we havent been following the protocols we deserve everything that comes our way

With championship clubs having to test now I,d expect more clubs to have positive tests

Did Clyde not have 1 or 2 games postponed?What was the outcome of that ?

Back injury I’m sure but @Jan Vojáček may Ken more about it.

Yeah it was his back. He picked up an injury in September (I think) of his first season with us and just couldn't shake it off. I can't remember the exact details, but I think he had some surgery and it didn't have much of an impact.

I think he now works for Sky or someone and has packed in playing totally. A real shame

It would be ridiculous to penalise clubs on the basis of a first test in the midst of the variant strain.
In saying that it’s Raith Rovers here......

It is a shame to hear that. All sorts of rumours flew about re his form with us, so just need to hope he is doing well and is happy away from football. Always came across like a decent lad.

Joking aside, it’s going to end up with many teams asking for postponements, likely outcome the championship will be forced  into our situation.

The SPFL and SFA decided on this course of action for the Championship. without consultation. They should therefore take full responsibility for any postponements during the lockdown period where there is no evidence of club wrongdoing.......

And so it begins. I see Raith are asking for a covid postponement as they can't field a team after their first bout of testing.  😂😂😂😂

Interesting you find that funny.

Didn’t see that one, and if honest was worried who we’d appoint after the usual suspects branded about. An excellent choice for this role and may be exactly the role that suits both parties.
There’s a genuine positive change of direction from the club, and the capture of Holt shouldn’t be underestimated. Held in very high regard by Norwich and the work he done with their academy. 


Pitt he didn’t give a flying f**k for ours when he was with us

I think they'll be fine. There are only 2 part-time clubs in the Championship so it isn't a particularly nasty outbreak.

Club have liaised with other clubs affected by the suspension of the lower leagues and will be writing to the football authorities seeking clarification on a number of concerns and impacts (eg the transfer window)....
