NEILLY HOOD

"A scorer with attitude. He hit them from anywhere, and they usually went in. Aggressive, not scared to jump with any defender."
- Martin Brown

"One of the bravest players I have ever seen in a Clyde jersey. He would run through a brick wall for you and he had a great rapport with the fans."
- David McLean

To vote for Neilly Hood text HOOD to 81111.

DANNY MASTERTON
"He was lazy, needed to be in the mood but was magnificent when he was."
- Harry Paterson

"Was a goal-scoring machine. He didn't do much during a lot of games, but when he did he would just come to life and would finish up bagging a hat-trick. I liked the story from (former manager) Craig Brown, on the eve of a cup tie that was being moved to a Sunday. Now, everybody knew big Danny liked a drink and Brown warned him not to go out drinking on the Saturday night. His reported reply is a classic: "Don't worry boss, my night's a Friday!"
- David McLean

ARCHIE ROBERTSON
"Robertson played inside left and used to play from a deep position. He was the 'brains' of the great Clyde team in the late 50s which won the Scottish Cup in 1958 and took three points off a Hearts team which won the League by the proverbial mile that year. His passing was superb, especially his long passes. He could read a game, exposed the opposition's weaknesses and helped Tommy Ring become a successful left winger."
- Adrian McQueen

"Archie is the only player to score a goal in a Scottish Cup final from a corner. It was disallowed. He then took the corner again - and again scored! The referee had to allow it. Two corners, two goals, against Celtic in a cup final. We won!"
- Liz Waddell

"Great player, complete gentleman. Sheer skill, allied to great modesty. A role model who should be a cult figure!"
- Jackie Brown
