Club Statement – Player Contracts

Clyde Football Club would like to thank all the players who have recently agreed to terminate their contracts and support Clyde through its current difficulties. We recognise and appreciate the sacrifice that each of the players have made and we expect that their support will not be in vain as we plan to rebuild for our first season in the Second Division since 2000.

We were disappointed not to be in a position to retain any of the players, although we did make everyone aware through the PFA Scotland that we would be pleased to retain anyone on reduced terms but we felt that it would be insensitive to offer specific players contracts on significantly reduced terms whilst our future remained uncertain.

The players who have left the club today are:-

Ricky Waddell, Mark Brown, Alan Lithgow, Billy Gibson, Stuart Kettlewell, Ruari MacLennan, Roddy MacLennan, Alan Trouten, Willie McLaren, David McKay, Pat Clarke and Marc McCusker.

We have some very significant challenges ahead but we are in a position to take these on without the threat of administration being forced upon the club through an inability to meet its obligations.

Today marks the start of rebuilding our club. We cannot be complacent, our need for fundraising continues, but our future is now to a greater extent in our own hands and therefore we need to be united as the hard work begins on rebuilding the Bully Wee.
