Breaking News ! Threave Rovers gaffer Vinnie Parker is disappointed there will be no champions for the South of Scotland League this season. Officials have agreed to declare the 2020-21 campaign null and void due to the coronavirus pandemic, with no games having been allowed this year and adult contact sport banned until May 17. They also decided there would be no champion club, meaning no promotion play-off for the Lowland League. But with both the Lowland and Highland Leagues declaring champions on points-per-game, Parker believes the same could have been done in the South. Although Threave were behind Stranraer in the standings, points-per-game would have handed the Castle Douglas side the title.

We still had to play Saints and Stranraer.

.” Parker did, however, feel the decision to call time on proceedings was the right one, with less than half the games having been played and football still banned for another month. He’s now hoping to arrange some training sessions to keep the players ticking over ahead of the new season which is still several months away. He said: “The problem now is it’s 16 weeks until we start again. We don’t have a date yet but the Lowland League is down for July 17.

Then once we can have contact we’ll start drip feeding it in. “We had one on Saturday with the local boys and it was a nice day with football cricket and football tennis.”
