Friday night footie may be a runner

DISCUSSIONS have taken place over the prospect of Friday night football in the SFL.

The concept was trialled in 2006 in a match between Livingston and Hamilton Accies but it was never rolled out.

However, the informal talks which have taken place between Scottish Football League clubs could lead to the idea being examined in closer scrutiny and could eventually see games rescheduled to Friday evenings.

A board meeting will take place tomorrow (Thursday), and although not on the agenda, the topic could be discussed under other business.
