Rutherglen Glencairn 2022-23


Recommended Posts

We are delighted to confirm that striker Ryan McManus will be joining the club on 1st July 2022 when his current contract with Ashfield expires. Ryan scored 32 competitive goals for Ashfield in season 2021-22 and we hope that he will produce a similar scoring rate at Glencairn.60b19012fdfb2fad31efecbc8ef5f9bb.jpg

We are proud to announce to our members and supporters that we have today received formal confirmation of our acceptance as full members of the Scottish Football Association with effect from the governing body's Annual General Meeting on 21st June 2022.

Consequently Rutherglen Glencairn will now compete in next season's Scottish Cup for the first time in the club's 126-year history.

This is the culmination of a project which has been ongoing for almost three years, however it has been a particularly intensive period of work for the club's Management Committee since the club's members gave their approval to the committee to make a formal Scottish FA Membership application last October.

We would like to thank everyone who has played their part in this achievement, both at the club and those at other clubs who have helped us in the process.

We are particularly delighted to bring Scottish Cup and senior football back to the Royal Burgh of Rutherglen, and we look forward to the whole town getting behind their own senior football club as we set out on this new adventure and era in our history.

Can now play Clyde in Rutherglen in the big Scottish Cup.

I don't get this fixation with Glencairn playing Clyde. They left Rutherglen 36 years ago.

...and they were only ever half in Rutherglen anyway because the boundary ran through Shawfield, they preferred the Glasgow Cup to the Lanarkshire Cup back in the day, and were not able to use the Rutherglen angle to get into the Fairs Cup because UEFA viewed them as a Glasgow team. Might as well get the other obvious talking points out of the way. Rent money from them would probably come in handy though? I doubt they'll be at New Douglas Park permamently from now on.

The consequences of not paying the rent at Hamilton will be bit more medieval than a strongly worded letter from the council.

Maybe he got an offer from one of the four teams he played in the last two weeks of this seasonย ๐Ÿ˜‰

Glencairn's pre-season match schedule :-

Saturday 9th July 2022 - Cambuslang Rangers (away) - William Skinner Memorial Cup

Saturday 16th July 2022 - Townhead Tournament - Cumnock Juniors pre-season tournament

Sunday 17th July 2022 - Townhead Tournament - Cumnock Juniors pre-season tournament

Saturday 23rd July 2022 - East Kilbride Thistle (home) - Hamish B. Allan Centenary Cup

A trophy at stake in every pre-season game, which will hopefully make them a wee bit more competitive than just normal pre-season match fitness exercises.
