Backing Braveheart’s Broadwood Babes

Commercial Director David Dalziel spoke to www.clydefc.co.uk this evening and reflected on the appointment of Colin Hendry as boss: “Colin Hendry is probably the highest profile individual ever to have held the position of Manager of Clyde FC and is a fantastic appointment.”

However David was also acutely aware of the challenge that Colin’s appointment brings: “We all need to work hard to increase our income to enable Colin to have an appropriate player budget to help us compete in this increasingly competitive First Division.”

David continued, “In addition to the anticipated increase in the number of supporters upgrading their season tickets to executive memberships, we will also appreciate it if our fans will consider participating in our ever popular “jersey off their back” scheme. This is the scheme where at the end of the season fans will literally get the shirt of one of their Bully Wee favourites. The purchase of season tickets is, of course, another important way of helping the club budget and it would be greatly appreciated if season tickets purchases could be made during the month of June or early July.”

The club places a high priority on securing external sponsorship and David is delighted that Optical Express have continued their relationship with the club. He was equally delighted that the inaugural away sponsor raffle, in which Gala Bingo of Cumbernauld was the winner, was a great success.

David was keen for fans to play their part in other sponsorship initiatives: “Fans assisted us in getting participants for the away sponsor raffle and we need their help again in identifying further support for a variety of sponsorship opportunities, such as; taking an Executive Box on match days, sponsoring the match ball, sponsoring one of our home league games or even the ball boys this coming season.

“Please contact me on 01236-451511 if you feel you can help or have a friend or colleague whom you feel would like to be involved in supporting the club and give the backing to Colin as he begins his time at Clyde.”
