Update – Friday 30th April – the club can confirm that we have asked the Scottish FA Compliance Officer to investigate the incident that happened last night during our game against Albion Rovers, and the SPFL has been informed. Serious allegations have been made and they must be fully and robustly investigated. Following discussions with the Stenhousemuir player involved, he will take a leave of absence until the investigation is concluded.
Thursday 29th April – The club is aware of a verbal altercation that took place between players from both Stenhousemuir and Albion Rovers during tonight’s match. We have spoken to the players involved, David Cox (Albion Rovers) who was on the bench, and Jonathan Tiffoney (Stenhousemuir) who was playing. Both players are making claims of serious and wholly inappropriate comments being made during the game that have implications for player wellbeing and mental health.
Whilst we accept that things can get said during a game, we believe the allegations are sufficiently serious enough to merit a more detailed investigation. We will be referring this to the Scottish FA tomorrow and will work with them and our colleagues at Albion Rovers to investigate the incident.
