Carluke Rovers boss Mark Weir wants season ended for good

Carluke Rovers manager Mark Weir reckons the Scottish Football Association ought to end this season’s minor football card for good.

It was announced last week that the current suspension of play from League One downwards within the Scottish football pyramid would be continued until at least Monday, March 1.

Weir, whose Rovers side are in conference B of the West of Scotland Football League, told the Carluke and Lanark Gazette: “Just call the season to a halt now.

“The stop-start scenario isn’t any good to anybody.

“It’s pointless going back for two or three weeks for it to stop again for four or five weeks.

“You would be back to doing a mini-pre-season, so I’m all for calling it a day, and then once we’re all vaccinated, then hopefully we can get going again from start to finish.

“Things are starting slowly moving forward with the vaccine.

“When we’re all jabbed, the better it will be for all of us and everyone involved in football.”

Rovers, last in action competitively in a 4-2 league defeat at Neilston back on December 19 last year, have played only seven conference B games of this coronavirus-ravaged season.

Should the country’s lower leagues be given the green light to return in March, fixtures for the first four games in the premier division and the three WoSFL conferences have been drawn up.

The WoSFL has stated that it will call the season on a points-per-game basis if more than 50 per cent of games end up being played.
