Flags by law are not essential ‘at lower levels of football’ - a consequence of this is each league and association have Their own local rules. Some leagues will allow games without flags and some don’t. 

I do understand that but not in a Scottish cup tie. Still don’t know who is responsible for putting them out.

Home teams responsibility. 

I was meaning more along the lines of is it a grounds man to blame or was the players to put them out.

Usually a committee member but cud be anyone, player coach . Someone shud have made sure they were out.

Imo the refs is the main man here, if he approached the 2 teams and made it clear there were no corner flags and both teams were happy to play then thats that.

If he approached lauriston during game and raised a concern and nothing was done then lauriston have left thereself wide open. 

Harestanes r long in the tooth and will know if they can exploit the rule or no and a hink there silence speaks volumes. 

If appeal goes in then there will be a replay dont see any other outcome.

Couldn’t agree more I think harestanes know there is an appeal to be heard or nothing would have been said about the matter. Lauriston need to take whatever happens on the chin as it is a silly mistake to make and I think they would do the same if the roles were reversed.

I’d be embarrassed if I was associated with Harestanes and playing that reply. As someone said early in the thread it was a free hit for Harestanes. If they won the game I doubt the home would be lodging same appeal

They can’t lodge an appeal as they are to blame with being the home team

If there’s a replay then surely it’ll be played at Pilton. Not sure that’s the best outcome for Harestanes in all honesty. Would be a big crowd and I can’t imagine that some of the local punters would be too kind to them.

They don’t need to appeal if the ref put it in his report then the game will be replayed regardless, harestanes should do the decent thing and withdraw from the cup therefore giving lauriston the tie.

That doesn’t answer the question though, does it?

 

They have a handbook with the rules in it for situations like that!

Harestanes calling on their pals to try and justify their laughable appeal. Give it a rest guys, its a embarrasement and if they get their replay and progress Harestanes will be the laughing stock of Scottish Amateur football no matter what you say. Every football person knows its an absolute nonsense and tells you a lot about the ethos within the Club.

Pish

I’m only going on what I was told from a guy who was part of safa committee for over 20 yrs,said it happened a few times in past,probably never publicised as much with no social media in they days but home teams were disqualified as its breaking laws of game,it’s up to home team to provide flags.

Can sumone explain why there was no flags in place. That’s like playing a match way no nets it’s part of the set up.

You can start a game with no nets. Corner flags are a MUST though.
