Methlick decision due this week

Methlick will discover whether they are to be relegated from the Aberdeenshire Grades top league this week.

The Grades committee meet to discuss the case of Bon Accord, who are accused of fielding an ineligible player against the Lairds side on August 2.

Robin Taylor, chairman of the disciplinary committee, said: “This situation involves clubs at both ends of the league. There could be a number of outcomes.”

Bon Accord will have an early opportunity to avenge their shock defeat by Ellon Gordon in the final of Aberdeenshire Cup when the two teams meet this weekend.
