CLUB STATEMENT - By Steven Mew

Further to the announcement earlier today from the Scottish FA & SPFL to suspend all domestic professional football until further notice, the Club’s Management Committee would like to share with members and fans that, although clearly regrettable, this is a decision we applaud and it is fully endorsed by the Club.

At present, this means postponement of Saturday’s match v Elgin City, and Wednesday’s home match against Annan Athletic – but further direction and guidance on this will be issued next week.

We understand and share the concern of all SPFL clubs and the wider football family as to the practicalities and timings of when competitive football will return – but of greater concern is the health and wellbeing of everyone associated with the Club, those involved in the game more generally - as well as the wider community.

As in common with other clubs, we will communicate further around this unprecedented situation over the coming days as and when any new developments are confirmed. Meantime our message is to stay up-to-date with public health advice, and do everything you can to help yourself and others stay safe.
