North junior football has been put into winter hibernation, with play suspended until February.
While professional football has been given the go ahead to proceed through the Covid-19 lockdown, the Scottish Junior FA had to make their own call.
On Thursday night, it was announced that the SJFA management committee had voted unanimously to suspend play for the rest of the month.
The North region was scheduled to resume with League Cup fixtures tomorrow but these have been cancelled, while clubs are not allowed to play bounce matches during the month.
One exception is Aberdeen junior side Banks o' Dee, as the Superleague champions are still involved in the senior Scottish Cup and play Fraserburgh away in the second round, due to be staged tomorrow.
Moray junior club Islavale announced on their Facebook page: "All football, training and friendlies has this evening been suspended until 6th February after a meeting between the North & East Regions.
"Many clubs along with ourselves felt it would be the right decision as it would be putting players and committee at risk with travelling to different places and (it is) not right to be playing football in the current circumstances.
"This season was always going to be disrupted and who knows what will happen come February.
"All we can hope is that come August the start of a new season may bring better times."
