THE Joint Response Group will ‘await further clarification’ from the Scottish Government after Nicola Sturgeon outlined her route map out of lockdown. 

The First Minister addressed Holyrood on Tuesday afternoon and provided an update on the potential easing of Covid restrictions. 

Sturgeon revealed that rules could begin to be altered by late April but there was no detailed information regarding what the latest regulations mean for Scottish football.

A JRG statement read: “The Joint Response Group notes the First Minister’s road map out of lockdown outlined at Holyrood today.

“We await further clarification from ministers in the coming days on the implications for Scottish football at all levels, including leagues and clubs currently under the Scottish FA suspension and the wider grassroots game.

“We will provide a more detailed update when ministers outline the road map for affected areas of Scottish football.

“The JRG is committed to working with government to ensure the national game is primed to return within the ‘progressive easing’ timeline announced today.”
