RENFREW co-manager Colin Clark has urged SJFA chiefs not to use the average points per game system to determine final league standings after the rest of the campaign was cancelled last week.

The procedure has been used to determine final placings in the SPFL Championship, League One and League Two after being voted for by clubs, with The Frew falling from fourth to fifth if the system were to be implemented. 

Clark said: “I don’t think the average points per game system is fair.

"We’ve played the better teams twice so we were coming up to play what you would consider the weaker teams, so come the end of the season it would be feasible to say our points average would go up rather than drop.

"Points in the bag is better than points that you’ve still to play for.”
