Sir Alex Backs the Bully Wee

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has urged Clyde fans to do all they can to support the upcoming match against a select XI from his club.

Speaking today, he said, “I am delighted that Manchester United has this opportunity to help Clyde by providing the opposition for this fundraising event.

“Clyde have a long and distinguished history in Scottish football and are a special club for many in the game, including myself.

“I do hope that Clyde supporters will do everything they can to turn up in good numbers for this important event.”

Sir Alex’s reserve team boss Ole Gunnar Solksjaer will lead a side to Broadwood on Sunday 18th October, providing Bully Wee fans and the local community with a chance to see some of the World’s best young talent close up.

Interest in the match continues to grow, with local schools being issued with leaflets this week via the Supporters’ Trust. Posters will also be erected in outlets in Cumbernauld, Rutherglen and other surrounding areas.

Limited hospitality places are still available, but going fast. Click here for information on the packages and how to contact the commercial team.

Club director Frank Dunn echoed Sir Alex’s comments when he spoke to the official website this evening:-

“The success of this match is of vital importance to the club’s finances and could have a major impact on the playing squad budget. We need all fans to do their best in selling vouchers for the match or encouraging family or friends to come along on the day.”

As a reminder, tickets are not required and entry by pay-at-the-gate will be £10 for adults and £5 for under-16s. If you do, however, wish to buy a voucher for entry to pass onto others, these are available from the Clyde office.
