Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Clyde have con­firmed they are press­ing ahead with a move to Shet­tle­ston for the 2016/17 sea­son.

An email to Clyde FC, Com­mu­nity In­ter­est Club (CIC) mem­bers re­vealed that the club would re­main at Broad­wood next sea­son, how­ever ne­go­ti­a­tions would be on­go­ing with re­gards to a ground­share with Shet­tle­ston Ju­niors at Green­field Park.

Direc­tor of Clyde John Tay­lor con­firmed that the aim was now to move to Shet­tle­ston for the start of the 2016/17 league sea­son.

He said:“We were look­ing at it for next sea­son but now we are work­ing on pro­pos­als and plans for the fol­low­ing sea­son.

“There’s not re­ally a lot to say about Shet­tle­ston at the mo­ment, we are com­mit­ted to Broad­wood for next sea­son.”

Green­field Park is lo­cated on old Shet­tle­ston Road and has a ca­pac­ity of around 1800.

Clyde had pre­vi­ously ex­plored plans to move back to Ruther­glen, which in­volved a ground­share with Ruther­glen Glen­cairn at the Clyde Gate­way Sta­dium. How­ever the move failed to come to fruition af­ter Glens club pres­i­dent, Alex McArthur said they were look­ing at:“other av­enues to take the club for­ward”.

The Bully Wee had also ex­plored the pos­si­bil­ity of an East Kil­bride move.

Clyde moved to Shaw­field in Ruther­glen in 1889. They left Shaw­field in 1986 and se­cured a ground­share with ri­vals Partick This­tle for five sea­sons un­til 1991.

They then ground­shared with Hamil­ton Ac­cies for a fur­ther three sea­sons, un­til mov­ing to their cur­rent home in Broad­wood in 1994.

On the move Clyde hope to ground­share with Shet­tle­ston from 2016
