More than two thirds of clubs in the new West of Scotland Football League would not support a return to action without fans present, a survey has shown.

Clubs in the new set-up, which include Clydebank and Yoker Athletic, were asked to complete a survey on the key issues affecting them as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

The results showed that 70 per cent of teams would not support a start without fans, while there was no strong consensus for starting on either October 10 or 31, with both options receiving 49.1 per cent of the vote.

League chiefs have now proposed to clubs that the league commence no earlier than Saturday, October 24.

They say this delay will allow time for them and the SFA to make the case to the government for a financial package to support clubs.
