Youth Academy training suspended

The Club can confirm that Youth Academy training sessions are suspended until further notice following recommendations from the Scottish FA Board regarding the current COVID-19 situation.

Previously, the decision on youth team training was at the Club's discretion but now no group or conditioning training will take place.

Speaking about the decision, Head of Youth Development Alistair Stevenson said: "In light of the current circumstances surrounding the coronavirus in this country our academy sessions have been suspended.

"Obviously it's disappointing but the health and wellbeing of the kids and their parent/guardians is more important.

"We will keep the kids and their parents/guardians updated as soon as we have more information on when training and matches can resume."

The first-team-squad also remain away from McDiarmid Park and are following their own training programmes as per instructions from the management team.
