SWF Statement – Celtic v St Johnstone (29/08/21)


Scottish Women’s Football (SWF) and the Perform and Win Committee, commonly referred to as the League Management Committee (LMC), have been informed by St Johnstone that they will be unable to fulfil their match against Celtic FC on Sunday 29th August in the Group Stage of the SWPL Cup.

St Johnstone are unable to fulfil the fixture due to a number of injuries and one player testing positive for COVID-19.

While the Perform and Win Committee were sympathetic to St Johnstone’s situation, injuries within a squad are not suitable for postponement requests. With only one player unavailable due to COVID-19, this does not meet the relevant criteria for a game to be postponed.

The Perform and Win Committee have therefore awarded the tie to Celtic FC and it will be marked as a 3-0 win.
