Great Day for Southside Branch

Wed, 31st Oct 2012 11:21pm

Following the visit of the Southside Branch School of Football to Broadwood on Sunday, Stevie Morton spoke to the official website to express his sincere thanks to Willie O'Neill, on behalf all the boys and their coaches, for organising the trip and issuing each of the boys with a Clyde FC scarf.

Stevie was also keen to thank Clyde supporter Ed Meechan, of Neill & Co Insurance Brokers, for his ongoing financial help and for arranging and funding the cost of the bus that took the boys to and from the match against Rangers.

The excitement of all the boys involved was clearly visible pre-match, as they displayed their singing and dancing skills alongside new club mascot, Bully the Bull. The lads had all already met Bully the previous Friday when he visited a training session and handed out Halloween goodie bags (pictured above).

Despite the wet weather and the final score, the boys thoroughly enjoyed their day at Broadwood and were still enthusiastically singing some newly learned Clyde songs on the journey home, Stevie reported.

"Hopefully the continued experience of their involvement in our community football activities and occasions like Sunday, in time, might just encourage some of these young men to become Clyde supporters in the future," he said.
