SPL and SFL to set up working party after 'productive' reconstruction talks

Hampden: The Commonwealth Games closing ceremony will take place at Hampden
Representatives from the SPL, SFL and Scottish FA will meet to move plans forward on league reconstruction.

A "working party" of club representatives from the Scottish Premier League and Scottish Football League is to be formed to move forward on league reconstruction.

A meeting of the Scottish FA's Professional Game Board was held on Thursday to bring all parties to the table on the issue, after both league bodies unveiled separate plans for restructuring of the professional game.

The group will be tasked with creating a solution which is favourable to all 42 senior clubs, before asking teams to give their approval.

A statement from the PGB read: "The Scottish Premier League and Scottish Football League have agreed to set up a working party of nominated club representatives to expand on the extremely productive meeting held today by the Scottish FA's Professional Game Board regarding league reconstruction.

"It is intended that the first meeting of the working group will take place later this month and will also include representatives of the Scottish FA Board.

"The PGB are greatly encouraged by the willingness on both sides to engage on the many areas of common ground and also in their commitment to implementing change.

“After the working party have reached consensus on a final set of proposals, they will be presented to all clubs across SPL and SFL for consideration.”

A working party of three members from both bodies, chaired by a Scottish FA representative, previously failed to come to fruition after being proposed in mid-July by the governing body.
