Victory for Supporters

Veteran members of the Clyde supporters team from the 80s and 90s took part in the invitational Queen’s Park supporters annual sixes tournament at Lesser Hampden yesterday, and came away as winners of the masters trophy.

The masters tournament, for over 35s, included fans’ teams representing Nottingham Forest, Bristol City, Edinburgh City, St Johnstone, Queen’s Park, St Mirren, Paris St-Germain and Clyde. 

After a slow start in the section, with an opening defeat to Nottingham and a draw against St Mirren, a final group section 4-0 victory against St Johnstone saw the Bully Wee scrape through to the semi-finals by virtue of goal difference over St Mirren. With the team getting better as the tournament progressed, a 4-1 win over Edinburgh City in the semi earned another go at Notts Forest in the final.

This time Clyde came out on top with a 2-1 victory to secure the Gary Brooks Masters trophy.

The guy’s who represented the Bully Wee were; Stevie Morton (manager), Alex Moore, Rod McKenzie, Alex Cranston, John McCone, Brian McLeavy, Dan Lee, Andy Peters & John Carolin.

Overall, 24 teams took part in the day, from 12-year-olds through to the veterans in four separate tournaments. Stevie Morton said:-

“The games were played in good spirit by all teams and the summer sunshine made it an ideal day out for players, family and friends who turned out in numbers to give their support.

“We would like to extend our thanks to the Queen’s Park supporters for the invitation and for all their efforts in making it a great day out for all. We look forward to next year and the opportunity to defend our trophy.”
