So I take it if both teams agree to play without corner flags then this is ok ?

Think we could talk about the legalities of this all day long. There will be a rule in place and harestanes at worst will get a replay and I would not be surprised if they got put straight through. However harestanes credibility will forever be shot in the game and will have no respect ever again from their opponents. They were not good enough on the day and lost and instead of doing the honourable thing of wishing their opponents luck in the next round they resort too this.  Worst still, harestanes on their day are good enough too win the Scottish.....how would that look if that happened? SAFA would be a laughing stock

I agree that Harestanes haven’t covered themselves in glory BUT... Who ‘hosts’ a Scottish Cup game (or any game) without corner flags whether it be a their home ground or moved elsewhere? Bit tinpot if you ask me

I think you are being a bit harsh and unkind to Harestanes. Allegedly they did wish their opponents all the best in the next round etc. Unfortunately they then sneaked in a letter of protest the minute they got home.

I dont think many if any will disagree with this. Still doesn't change what I said though

If memory serves me correctly, Harestanes were involved in a hearing following a Scottish tie a good number of years ago. Again, not 100% on what happened and what the outcome was but I think both they and Bannockburn may have been turfed out following a rammy in a Scottish tie towards the later stages say 5/6 years ago?

Not linked to this case right enough but just reminiscing :) Can anyone remember the details?

Hasn't it been common knowledge that corner flags are necessary for scottish cup ties for years? I vaguely remember being told by a league official that if you played a tie without them it would automatically void the tie? I would have thought any team booking a park would have asked if they needed to provide their own corner flags. On the point about it being windy, if they blow over so be it, at least they are there in the first place?

Yeah we get all that. Incredibly naive of the home side etc etc. But why did the ref play the tie and why did harestanes not raise the issue beforehand? Seems to me it was their insurance policy all along. That's the stinking part.

I'm not defending harestanes at all, they lost and the absence of corner flags clearly had no bearing on the result. Blame on both parties I think

No letter yet, I expect that will arrive today as we should receive one from Harestanes.
