SFA and Sevco agree on embargo


This evening we received clarity on two items first reported here and on several other locations months ago.  Sevco have accepted the 12 month player registration embargo handed down by Lord Carloway’s Appellate Tribunal as a condition of their application for membership of the SFA, while Fifa have granted four former Rangers players permission to sign for new clubs.

The SFA, under president Campbell Ogilvie, took every step possible to alert Sevco that if they did not accept the transfer embargo a more severe penalty would be imposed on Rangers, whose licence they are trying to acquire.  Hopes of “elimination” from the Scottish Cup as an alternative punishment were based on false logic, and were also just silly.

Sevco disputed the embargo, hoping the SFA would offer to set it aside, as it tried to set-aside so many other rules to accommodate them in recent weeks, however, the best the new company could achieve was an accommodation to allow them to stock up on players over the next five weeks in order to off-set the effects of so many players ‘walking away’.

There is a chance this decision will save Sevco a second season in the SFL Third Division but there remains many hurdles for the new club to achieve before they start and complete a football season.

No mention yet of what the SFA and SPL plan to do with the plethora of other disciplinary matters due against Rangers, or how they proposed to prevent their own independent judicial process from reaching an inconvenient verdict.

    It’s been reported that each division has a limit on what they can charge.



    Season tickets at the scrapyard will be in the region of £220.



    That ain’t gonnae be sufficient for upkeep never mind anything else.

    I don’t recall seeing that graffiti…I do remember the Tayto ad in Rathmines being painted over with “an Irish solution to an Irish problem” referring to the great condom debates that were going on at the time :)



    The first time I saw U2 play was in the old Dandelion Market, must have been around 78-79. The band I was in were up after them…even we were crappier than them :)



    Hail Hail

    No I think you are right about the Edges brother and the Virgin Prunes,They were like a sister band,they all knocked around together

  5. A suspended sentence for Sevco?



    Actually, haven’t read back the Blog yet but without thinking about it too deeply, this could be a accidentally (I’m sure) a disastrous decision for them, where now, they’ll have to attract players to play potentially at least three years in Div 3 or 2, No incomings in 2013/14



    Not only that they’ll have to do it all in a hurry, and with no money generated.



    What’s not to like CSC

    The Verve – Lucky Man



    This song means so so much to me that you will not even begin to believe. I am so very lucky to be a Celtic fan but it is so much more than that.



    God Bless you BABA is all I can say.

    Hail Hail

  9. Vmhan back so whits the craic?



    the hun loyal at hampden or out for themselves (same thing ya dafty) scottish football association have suspended the rangers (IL) possibly soon to be transferred to Sevco 1888 :¬) registration but not until they can take advantage of the very thing the sfa (laughing out loud here) are banning the rangers (IL) possibly soon to be transferred to Sevco 1888.



    One wonders if the SFA realise that they are flouting all their own rules to satisfy the requirements of a secret organisation in scotland/ in scottish football.



    The truth is our there and is about to hit the streetsCSC




  10. What is the Stars on




    Mate of mine was in The Black catholics,and they were rubbish


    Actually I claim to have invented the name,long story

  11. What reason was given for suspension of the transfer ban until after the summer. We need total transparency and demand to know why !!!



    Ps clubbing it on Ibiza so may have missed the transparency bit :)))

    First hearing that is very good, despite being distracted by a very good music video!!!



    Keep em coming.

  16. Still no sign of their season tickets going on sale.



    How much will they charge? No other club in div 3 is over £200 so maybe £250 at a push?



    Also what are their “exciting” potential signing targets now the embargo has been lifted?



    Gattesuo will be kicking himself that he missed out on such an opportunity.

    like it!



    cant wait to hear the gb’s cover version of that lol

  20. bournesouprecipe



    You never cease to amaze me.



    Keep doing what you do so well m8ty.



    Celtic in the ole CL this season would be totally fantastic, even if we are pot 4 now. We have nothing to fear after what we have faced down and finished. No other Club in World football could have done what we have achieved.



    Already Rangers are nothing to me now. We have Auldheid driving things so that we progress as fast as possible, and that does not even take on Board what Our Board are actually doing, they have came out of this with Maximum credit IMO despite many of us having doubts.



    Happy Days m8.

  22. SSN Van Persie admits to longing to play at ochilview twice a year in the winter months..could be heading north. Story developing

  23. Che,



    I bet Peterhead and Montrose are quivering at the thought of facing McCullough and RVP up front.



    If there could be a more extreme combination than that, then I have yet to see it. :))
