Two More Join Legends Match

Wed, 26th Feb 2014 9:04pm

The club is pleased to announce that two more fantastic names will be taking part in the end of season Legends Match at Broadwood.

Pat Nevin and Jim Thomson have confirmed their participation on Sunday 27th April.

Nevin was with The Bully Wee between 1981 and 1983, making 73 appearances and scoring 17 times. He then spent five years at Stamford Bridge with Chelsea, playing in nearly 200 matches for the London club. Pat's career also took him to Everton, Tranmere Rovers, Kilmarnock & Motherwell and he also received the ultimate endorsement by picking up 28 caps for Scotland.

Since retiring, Pat has become a well known media analyst on programmes such as Sportscene, Match of the Day 2 and 5 Live Sport.

Thomson was signed for Clyde by John Clark in 1991 and he went on to feature for the club on over 150 occasions, scoring 11 goals. In season 1992-93, Jim picked up a winners medal as Clyde secured a memorable Division Two Championship despite the club ground-sharing throughout. After leaving The Bully Wee in 1996, he went on to play for Stenhousemuir, Queen of the South and Arbroath.

Jim is currently commercial manager at one of those clubs - Queen of the South - a position he has held at Palmerston Park since 2011.

On the addition of the two men to the event, club director Bobby Gracey said: "In my opinion, Pat is probably the best talent produced by the club in modern times. It is hard to imagine Clyde being in a position to sell a player to a club like Chelsea, where Pat still remains a firm favourite with the fans.

"I am sure his return to the club where it all began will be warmly received by all attending the game... although I'm sure the full back tasked with marking him may not be feeling the same!

"I am also delighted to welcome Jim back to the club; he was an ever dependable and popular centre back.

"I hope as many Clyde fans as possible will turn out to see our former heroes appearing in our famous colours one more time."
