SAUCHIE Juniors will pay tribute to frontline workers who have helped thousands during the Covid-19 pandemic - by displaying the NHS logo on next season's home shirt. 

The Clacks side will also make a donation to NHS Scotland to say thanks for the sacrifices made by medics in the county and beyond. 

Nearly 1,000 people across the Forth Valley health board have had confirmed coronavirus since the first confirmed case in March.

Sauchie chairman Karl Rennie says the club had no hesitation in making the gesture with the logo due remain on their new home kit, which will be supplied by Hummel, for at least the full season. 

Rennie, whose wife has faced the realities of Covid-19 as a frontline care work, told Advertiser Sport: "We came to a decision that it is good for us to give something back.

"It is great to see the great job people have done through all of this and so many have gone the extra mile to help those who need them most.

"A lot of people have found a new sense of respect for the NHS and the work people do tirelessly every day for others.

"It is good to give something back and we are in a great position to be able to do that." 

Sauchie's new kit will also adorn the logo of Contractor Property Rentals Limited after the firm agreed a three-year partnership with the Beechwood Park club. 

It's just one of the many ways in which the Premier Division outfit have refused to let lockdown hold them back, with improvements also being made to their home ground ahead of football's return.

It is still unknown when football will return at Sauchie's level and in what form, although some sort of closed door game is very likely. 

To help the club during this unprecedented time, Clacks fans have gone the extra mile themselves, pledging more than £2,500 in recent weeks to back the club. 

Rennie said: "We are so thankful to our fans for what they have done and we want to give something back to them when the football returns."
