Scottish Lowland League clubs vote to return to five substitutes

Scottish Lowland League clubs have voted to return to using five substitutes and this has been approved by the SFA.

The change will take effect in time for this weekend’s games.

The use of five substitutes is already in place in other leagues within the pyramid.

A SLFL spokesperson said: “FIFA has allowed each league to determine its own rules regarding substitutes since the Covid-19 pandemic began.”
