Back The Bully Wee

Club chairman Ian Letham today spelt out to the official website the effect that the financial downturn was having on the Bully Wee:-
 
“These are very difficult times and Clyde have not been spared. The club faces a budget deficit this year which we need to address in the next three months. Our supporters and current sponsors have been great for us but we now urgently need to find more money to keep our club safe.

“We need to raise a substantial amount between now and the end of the season. A fall in revenue through reduced crowds and lost sponsorship, combined with rising costs has put an already tight budget under extreme pressure and it is important that all with Clyde at their heart are aware of that.

“No contribution at this time is too small. From taking part in the Trust lottery or buying a 50/50 draw ticket on match days to purchasing a hospitality package or taking part in our away shirt sponsor draw, these are all ways in which you can help.

“Season ticket holders that want to help even further can do so by donating at the turnstile starting from the St. Johnstone game. Unfortunately the current situation will also mean that gate prices for adults will have to rise from £15 to £17. We will, however, maintain child, parent & child and concession prices at the current levels.

“Any way in which you can contribute financially to the club at this time is vital. All donations of monies raised will be ring fenced and held by the Clyde Development Company.

“Despite our financial hardship and the disappointment of last night’s result, there are many good things going on at this club. For example, last week our youths – featuring five 16-years-olds – went to Murray Park and beat the Rangers Under-19 squad packed with ten internationalists by two goals to nil. They are our future and that is what we are fighting for.

“By working together we can achieve a positive outcome that will safeguard our club. I trust that all Clyde supporters will back the Bully Wee in whatever way they can to enable us to keep this club alive during these difficult times.”
