LATEST NEWS: BSC Snatch striker Connolly
BSC Glasgow are delighted to announce the acquisition of 23-year old Aaron Connolly. The striker, currently at Glenafton Juniors, will join Broomhill at the beginning of July, after penning a two year contract with the club.
“I’m really excited to be joining BSC after a few weeks of some serious consideration,” commented Connolly on his signing with the club.
“I’m looking for a new challenge, and I believe the Lowland League is an exciting addition to the football pyramid not to mention the opportunity to gain entry into League Two.”
Connolly, originally from East Kilbride, grew up playing youth football at Celtic and Hibs before moving on to Ayr United. There, the striker made his first team debut at aged 18, before moving on to junior sides Cumnock, EK Thistle, Hurlford, and most recently Glenafton.
“I’ve been at Glenafton now since August 2013, and played in the Scottish Junior Cup Final last year at Rugby Park, as well as winning the top goalscorer award. This year we also won the Ardagh Cup after beating Auchinleck Talbot in the final, and i’m happy to also be second top goalscorer this year.”
Despite finding ample success at Glenafton Connolly, who admitted it was a difficult decision to leave, is positive that BSC is the best place for him to be.
“I’m very close with a lot of people at Glenafton and I love it there, so it was a very tough decision after having enjoyed it so much.
“While less travel for training played a part in my decision, it was mainly down to the impression coaching staff Kingy, Gigz and Ally had on me, and how keen the were to get me on board.
“Also, I’m hugely impressed with the entire management, it feels like a really progressive club with a big future.
With preseason only a couple months away, the prolific goalscorer cannot wait to start working towards next seasons’ success, both for himself and the club.
“Personally, my first goal is to get into the team initially and make a good impression. Thereafter as a team, I think we’re going to aim high and push for promotion. This is no doubt a huge ask, but what’s the point in playing if you don’t believe you can succeed.
“I was really impressed with the aims the coaching staff have set as well. It was instantly something I bought into and I cannot wait to be a part of it.”
