Currently, Scotland and the UK are supposed to be living by lockdown-style measures as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak and global health pandemic. You are only to leave your house for the essentials or to go for one form of daily exercise, with no public gatherings of more than two people.

But still, someone has illegally entered St Mirren’s home park. The Buddies have reaffirmed the social distancing guidelines relayed to the public in recent weeks whilst also clearly stating that such behaviour isn’t acceptable.

“We are aware of an incident this afternoon where a member of the public has entered the stadium and run on to the pitch,” a statement reads. “We would like to make supporters aware of the dangers of entering the stadium illegally.

“Climbing the fence at the stadium could cause serious injury due to its height and the anti-climb spikes at the top. The club also wishes to remind supporters of Government guidelines during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. People should stay at home and only go outside for food, health reasons or work (but only if you cannot work from home).

“The single most important action we can all take in the fight against coronavirus is to stay at home in order to save lives and protect the NHS. The individual involved has not followed Government guidelines and could have caused himself serious injury while illegally entering the stadium.

“This type of situation will not be tolerated and CCTV footage has been passed on to the police.”

At the time of writing, there are 1,384 confirmed cases of Covid-19 in Scotland with 41 deaths.
