At the start of the pandemic in March we took the decision to make online access to our news free of charge by taking down our paywall. At a time where accurate information about Covid-19 was vital to our community, this was the right decision – even though it meant a drop in our income. In order to help safeguard the future of our journalism, the time has now come to reinstate our paywall, However, rest assured that access to all Covid related news will still remain free.
To access all other news will require a subscription, as it did pre-pandemic. The good news is that for the whole of December we will be running a special discounted offer to get 3 months access for the price of one month. Thank you for supporting us during this incredibly challenging time.
We value our content and access to our full site is only available with a subscription. Your subscription entitles you to 7-day-a-week access to our website, plus a full digital copy of that week’s paper to read on your pc/mac or mobile device. In addition, your subscription includes access to digital archive copies from 2006 onwards.
Just want to read one issue? No problem you can subscribe for just one week (or longer if you wish).
Oban Saints’ coach Jamie Graham has posted a fitness programme on the club’s WhatsApp page.
It features exercises players can do at home to keep the squad in good shape during the enforced football shut down.
Saints secretary David Buchanan is keeping in regular touch with the Scottish Amateur FA and the Central Scottish AFL but no decisions have been made yet as to whether the present season will continue or be declared null and void.
Saints are presently sitting top of Division 1B having won all 12 games played and looked certain to get promotion to the Premier Division, but this might not happen if the season is declared null and void.
David said: ‘Football becomes secondary at this difficult time and the club wishes everyone well and that they stay safe.’
