Queen's Park: we will not pay players

Queen's Park, the only amateur side in senior football in Britain, have quashed rumours that they are planning to pay their players.

Scotland's oldest club - formed in 1867 -look set to end this season at the bottom of the SPFL's four divisions for only the second time in their history. Finishing in a similar position next year would mean a play-off against either the Highland or Lowland League winners to retain their senior status and there was speculation among fans that a proposal to end amateurism was to be put to next month's annual meeting.

However, Christine Wright, the club's general manager, said: "We are not sure where these rumours have come from but there is no substance to them. There are no plans to look at the payment of players at the agm."
