The City of Glasgow Cup

Sun, 7th Jul 2019 7:33pm

The club is pleased to confirm that Clyde will take part in a revamped City of Glasgow Cup during the 2019-20 season.

The Bully Wee last participated in the competition five seasons ago, when it was played at under-17 level. 

In the new format, Clyde will join fellow Glasgow FA members Partick Thistle, Queen's Park, Celtic Colts and Rangers Colts in the competition. It will be played on a league basis, with each team meeting each of its opponents twice (home and away), giving a total of eight league games per club during the campaign.

A final tie will then be contested by the top two teams in the group stage, taking place in April.

Two trialists will be allowed for each side in each match. The Celtic and Rangers Colt teams will be permitted to play a maximum of two over age players in any match; otherwise the qualifying players are at under-21 level.
