Harry Glasgow

Everyone associated with the club was saddened today to learn of the death of former Clyde player Harry Glasgow.

Harry passed away yesterday, aged 76, following a long illness.

Harry is considered as one of The Bully Wee’s all time great players, having featured in nearly 300 matches between 1963 and 1972.

The full-back also captained the club, including during the famous 1966-67 season; regarded by many as the most successful year in the club’s proud history. During that campaign, Clyde’s part-time team finished third in the top flight of Scottish football, behind Celtic – who went on to win the European Cup against Inter Milan – and Rangers – who narrowly lost out to Bayern Munich in the Cup Winners’ Cup Final.

After leaving The Bully Wee, Harry went on to play for Stenhousemuir and he later managed The Warriors for a number of years.

In 2014, Harry was inducted into the Clyde FC Hall of Fame as part of the full 1966-67 squad. Unfortunately, he wasn’t able to attend the ceremony event but he was later presented with his commemorative salver (pictured) and was said to be “delighted” at his inclusion.

The club will publicly remember and pay respect to Harry at the home match against Berwick Rangers on 20th February and a full tribute will be published in The Clyde View matchday programme.

The club’s thoughts are with Harry’s family and friends at this time.
