Bo’ness United find out the proposed date for the start of this season’s Lowland League
The second Saturday in October has been pencilled in as the date for Bo’ness United to kick off life as a Lowland League club, writes Ian MacLean.
The restart date, which will be subject to Scottish Government approval, was agreed following a meeting last week of the Pyramid Restart Group, including representatives from the Lowland Leagues and the West, East and South of Scotland Leagues which will feed into it under the new set-up.
It’s also hoped that clubs will be able to play local friendlies from September 14, although clubs have again been reminded of the importance of adhering to the health protocols in place.
A statement from the Restart Group said: “Clubs have been reminded of the importance of the new Covid Officer role and the need to maintain the basic hygiene rules which are still 100 per cent in place.
