The SFA has issued a routemap for the return to football training by adults aged 18 and over. This is reflected in the schematic shown below with key dates being 24th August for squad training, 11th September for friendly matches and an earliest date of 1st October for competitive matches to commence.
These dates are indicative and may change if there are further government interventions. For Deveronvale the plan is to start pre-season training on Saturday 29th August to build on the individual runs and Zoom fitness sessions the players have been following for several weeks. Further information on the commencement of the SHFL season will follow shortly.
As the schematic shows, strict rules and protocols apply to the return to training which all clubs and players will have to adhere to and preparations for these and the provision of personal PPE has been in hand for some time.
