Our members may remember Andrew Simms, who spoke at our AGM a couple of years ago about climate action through sport, and is quoted in this article. We've continued to work with the "Cool Down" network and will enjoy celebrating this win!
As we said in the run-up to today's non-vote, we now need the clubs league and association to take a proper look at the pyramid and improve all aspects of it. As fans, we're ready to play our part. twitter.com/thecourierspor…
Extra measures come into force today that mean you will be breaking the law if you are found to have pyrotechnics or fireworks in any public place. Penalties include prison sentences of up to 6 months and/or fines of up to £5,000. twitter.com/ScotGovJustice…

"I'm a Dunfermline supporter, and had it not been for the guidance of SDS I might not have had a club to support any more. The fans are the focal point of any club, and must be allowed to have their say."
"There is simply no debating that some of the best literature and talk over the past few years on the governance of the game has come from Supporters Direct."
There are 7 supporter owned clubs in Scotland (with a further 7 formally represented in the governance of their club)
"Scottish football needs the fans, it needs Supporters Direct, and it needs to involve its fans properly and constructively."
91% of respondents to our Scottish Football Supporters Survey believe that community ownership can work in Scottish football
“The annual Scottish Football Supporters survey has again provided invaluable insight on what matters most to the fans. We will continue to work with stakeholders to ensure that as many fans as possible can enjoy our national game.”
Ian Maxwell, Scottish Football Association CEO
"The SPFL recognises and supports the important role that SD Scotland has to play in representing the views of supporters across the country."
Neil Doncaster, SPFL CEO
"SD’s work in helping fans pursue supporter ownership is valuable to the game and their communities and this game gives us a chance to celebrate the movement."
Ian Murray, MP
