Bully Wee-mail!

Wed, 8th Apr 2009 5:54pm

The club is continuing to receive support and kind messages on a daily basis from all corners of the country.

James Denham, from Galashiels, wrote to the official website this morning. James, originally from East Lothian, was born into a long-standing Bully Wee family and attended the 1958 Scottish Cup Final as a youngster.

His career took him to England and a long exile from Clyde followed, but he recently moved back to Scotland and has started attending matches again after hearing about the club's plight.

Here is his letter:-

I write with sadness at the plight of one of the great football clubs in Scottish Football. You may be the Bully Wee but in my eyes Clyde are the Bully Big of the wee clubs. The team has nearly always punched above its weight. Taking away the success of the Old Firm, the two Edinburgh clubs, Aberdeen and Queen's Park in the old days, few clubs, if any, can equal the success and history of Clyde FC.

Everyone who played, managed or worked for Clyde has only good things to say and I have never heard a bad word uttered about the club. It has always had a tradition of being a nice, friendly, family and community oriented club. Clyde truly are a Scottish Football institution.

I can't say I support the club but I suddenly realised, if Clyde die a part of me and my family heritage would go as well.

My hope and prayers are with everyone associated with Clyde. I do not have much money but I can afford £10 per week for as long as it takes and, hopefully, in my small way, I can help save a big part of Scottish Football history.

Yours in hope,

James Denham
