The message yesterday from the Scottish FA was as follows:

“Scottish football has been suspended until at least 30 April due to the coronavirus outbreak.

“The Scottish FA has given this date to provide clarity on the earliest date football could return but added there is still uncertainty”.

On that basis – the club has decided that the suspension of training will remain in place and the players should continue to stay away from the stadium.

The same suspension is in place for the Academy and George Cairns will provide updates when they are available.

There is obviously going to be financial implications for all businesses, families, individuals, communities, charities and football clubs and we await guidance from the government on how these will be managed.

We will be doing everything we can to protect the jobs and livelihoods of everyone connected with our Club.

For the health of our community, and in particular the elderly and sick, it’s vital that our supporters adhere to the advice being given on self-isolation.

Our main message is that the well being of the HAFC family and local community, as always, remains our priority and once again we ask our fans and the football community to stick together through these difficult and unprecedented times.

Allan Maitland – HAFC Chairman
HAMILTON ACCIES – “More than just a football club”
