Clyde FC; Season 2019-20

Recommended Posts

The under 21’s aren’t the normal under 21’s like at other clubs. Ours is with the foundation so he’s not signed for Clyde FC as such. Only way he could play just now would be as a trialist, or sign for the club.
 
Anyone know why we have it setup that way? Seems bizzare to have u21 side that we can't include in the first team.

The Glasgow Cup would be a great way of giving some of them a chance or we could just stick with Lennon and the goalkeeping coach being on the bench

To be honest I think it’s just the twitter account being set up the way it has been has lead people to believe it’s an actual Clyde under 21 squad. All other community clubs I think mention the foundation, they don’t for some reason.

Sure Danny and Allan have done some work with the community under 17’s or 16’s age groups and will probably do similar with this group. Hopefully a few gems in there including this guy that might find their way to getting a contract with the club.

I'm surprised (or perhaps not) at the atypically ham-fisted way these things present themselves. 

 

Albion Rovers were the club who mentioned a midnight flit of all u21 players and staff in May, specifically to Clyde, not us. There's little if any mention of it on the site, and the manner of Lennon requiring his boots again somehow only raised peckers instead of questions. In fact only Lennon himself addressed the registration factor, and the resulting swooning hordes fainting in the aisles seemed to halt any further enquiries.

 

If they aren't contracted (and i know for a fact none of them are), then there's nothing connecting them to the football club. Should we ever, somehow find ourselves in possession of a decent youth player (Dylan Falconer is considered the best), not even a potential future development fee can be commanded under those conditions. So what's the bloody point!!

Lennon addressed this. He explained the u21s can only be trialists. You can only register a 'trialist' once, for the established period, thus any of them playing any of eight GC games under this format is unfeasible. It also highlights that they're nothing at all to do with the club.

Why do they use club badge on their FB page but upon closer look of match photos no sign of a Clyde FC badge on their strips or close. Surely shouldnt be allowed to use our name... ?!

They're not the only vanity project taking willing advantage of the national status, that's for sure. 

 

Its the youth players we should feel for. They're being given a platform which to be blunt, they've never a chance in hell of finding a level at. Exploitation galore.

I'm sure they were mentioned a couple of times in the programme; there must be some link there.

Just a reminder to everyone to enjoy their daily dose of the roar at 3:45. I still get goosebumps four months on.

The Annan Highlights are class, the celebrations in the stand at the first goal were epic

Shame he was too seething to pan the camera to us for the 2nd goal.

Wonder if their wee camera boy has recovered from the disappointment of losing the final yet 😂

Yeah they must be linked with the club. Their Facebook has the Clyde badge, links to a page on the Clyde website and mentions Chris McStay and Ray Grant in their recent posts.

 

The latest news on the Clyde website is about the foundation too.

They are linked in that Clyde set up the Clyde Foundation that these teams play under. There’s no direct playing link with the 1st team in registration and the likes although a few from the older age groups have trained with Danny and Allan going by social media accounts (not sure if with the 1st team). Hopefully if there is a decent few young guys in there we get them snapped up before anyone else.

Some impressive results in particular v Glencairn youths who are very successful at their level. Reaching finals regular..

 

Hoping there is a link between clubs and we reap the awards as oppose to relying on u17s or 19s who werent close to being ready in the past.
