Any Junor Teams Struggling Due To The COVID-19

Recommended Posts

Surely there's help for business rates on clubs?

Do any clubs manage to pay anyone full-time e.g. club stewards?

Would they give out cash to any club that would be heading for the WOSL and abandoning the SJFA?

Abandoning the sjfa? Or looking to progress their club by joining a forward thinking league where the possibilities are endless?

Nobody's "abandoning" anything - you equally could argue the association abandoned the clubs the minute they decided their continued survival was paramount over their constituent clubs' best interests:

"The association is sacrosanct...."

That’s what we were told by HMRC last week when we phoned their help line to ask.

Youre right though as I can’t find anything on their website to confirm that.

Wouldnt like to think they’re dishing out duff information.

If you don't like the answer you get when phoning HMRC phone them a couple of hours later and a different person will give you a different answer.

Clubs that have an SFA licence ( that's about 100 clubs) will be forwarded their money that would have been paid to them nearer end of the year.

Article is a wee bit inaccurate as it states its  the 42 SPFL clubs.

Current licensed teams inc Banks of Dee and Girvan here.

SFA Licenced clubs received their payments from the SFA last Wednesday. This payment would normally have been made in December 2020

Hearing Pollok players are refusing to take a wage cut. This could be bad for the club as most players are getting over £100 a week. Leaves them open to being called Money Grabbing Mercenaries or other, less polite terms

The SFA / SJFA have already issued guidance on the CVJR scheme to clubs which came from their accountants. Only clubs who operate a PAYE system will be eligible and who also furlough their players. Those who still use brown envelopes will find it impossible to use the scheme as will possibly those who have already stated publically that they are not paying their players.

Bankies players and coaches have volunteered to give up their Apr and May salaries. A lovely gesture

Would like to think most will do this.

Fear for the future of some clubs otherwisse.

Some players and coaches probably have no option but to give them up with clubs really struggling.
