Clyde FC are delighted to announce the appointment of Douglas Morton to the position of Head of Community Football. Douglas comes to the club with considerable experience in coaching and football administration in youth football in England.

Douglas was keen to apply for the voluntary position as he wanted to give something back to the club he has supported since the 1950s.

On his appointment Douglas commented, "I am a Clyde supporter. My first match was the 1958 Scottish Cup semi-final. My second was the final itself. I watched Clyde fairly regularly until I left Scotland in 1971. I then became a very occasional attendee at games, either when I was back visiting or occasionally making special trips.

Douglas continued, "I was always aware that I was making little contribution to ‘my team’ but I'm now back in Scotland and I believe I have acquired the necessary skills and experience which I can put to use for the good of the Bully Wee and in particular this role within Clyde's Community Football activities."

Gordon Thomson, Director of Community and Volunteering added, "I’m confident that Douglas will be an asset to the club and will provide the appropriate support to our existing schools in Cumbernauld and the Southside of Glasgow. Further to that, Douglas also has the necessary experience to develop and enhance our Community Football initiatives in other areas and we are grateful for his commitment and willingness to volunteer for this important role."
