BSC Glasgow Appoint Club Ambassador

BSC Glasgow are delighted to announce that our eSports Partner Derek, AKA Mozza Gaming has been appointed as the club’s first ever ambassador.

He has been working with us for two seasons creating content in the Football Manager video game. By throwing himself into a passionate community of fellow gamers and engaging an audience of thousands with his easy-going and approachable personality, Derek has become one of the premier Football Manager Twitch streamers.

He is a hardcore BSC Glasgow supporter and spends a significant amount of time talking up the work that we do to his audience and, to be quite honest with you, anyone who will listen. We love his passion and we feel that this is the best way to reward him.

Derek said: “I’m delighted to have been appointed as an ambassador. Having supported and worked with BSC over the last couple of years, it means a lot that George and those involved considered me suitable to further represent the club.”

General Manager George Fraser said: “Ever since Mozza joined us as our eSports Partner we have been appreciative of the extra publicity and support he has generated through the online community. We see this as a way of thanking him for his work, and more importantly his commitment to the club.”

Lowland League Preview: Dalbeattie Star (H)

We’re back in Alloa for our fifth game in fourteen days as we host Ritchie Maxwell and his Star men for our second home fixture of the new season. 

First off, the less said about our last two outings, the better. A last minute Colts winner saw us pick up our first loss of the season and we don’t really need to talk about our first round performance in the Tunnocks Caramel Wafer Cup, do we? 

The Islecroft side will hope to replicate their victory over us last season to put their first three fixtures behind them. A huge 8-0 loss to Kelty Hearts, 2-0 to East Kilbride and 1-0 defeat to Gala Fairydean Rovers last weekend.

On the subject of last season, Star proved to be a thorn in the side of BSC Glasgow being the only team outside the top four to hand them a loss the entire season. Despite a 4-1 victory in the home fixture, it was relegation-battling Star that dominated the away leg, running out 2-1 winners. 

It will surely be in their head that they could be capable of another upset but BSC will be keen to bounce back after two losses on the spin and get back on track.

£10 Shirt Sponsorship Raffle

It’s almost pay day so why not use the last tenner in your bank to get right behind BSC Glasgow this season… literally.

We’re giving two lucky businesses… or anyone really… the chance to win back of shirt sponsorships on our home and away kits next season (which will be the same as last year’s kits – surprise reveal!).

All you have to do is purchase an entry and we’ll draw the winners on Saturday 3rd August.

Get involved! It’s cheaper than a salad some places…

Season Ticket? £25!

That’s right folks, we’ve officially lost it.

This season we will be selling season tickets for £25.

The ticket covers every home Lowland League match AND cup ties (but not the Scottish Cup, we’re not that far gone). Since we’ve frozen our ticket prices for 2019/20 (£7/£3/U16s Free dontcha know), that means that you could save a staggering £80.

That’s £80 you could have in your pocket to take that special someone out for dinner, or adopt a dog or something.

Sponsor A Player for a Fiver

THIS PROMOTION IS NOW CLOSED

BSC Glasgow are delighted to announce that we think sponsoring players and staff is a) too expensive and b) doesn’t come with enough risk.

That’s why, for 2019/20, we’re giving YOU the chance to sponsor a player or staff member for the princely sum of £5. Yes, that’s right. Five pounds sterling.

Pay your fiver below and your name (or the name of the person or business you’d like to be involved – we’re not fussy, but keep it clean) will be entered into a draw for a random player or staff member.

You might get a top goalscorer… you might get a midfield maestro… you might get nothing, or worse, you might get Match Reporter Martin.

You’ll be featured alongside the player or staff member on our website, in our occasional programmes in 2019/20 and on the player’s goal cards/gifs for the season. We literally can’t say fairer than that.

What’re you waiting for? It costs less than one of those expensive beers you like so much…

While you’re at it, you might want to get a season ticket for £25… we’ve lost the plot. Get involved.

Opportunity: Matchday Photographer

Do you have an interest in sports photography, or maybe you want to try something different…?

We’re looking to take on a Matchday Photographer to capture the weird and wonderful world of Lowland League football at BSC Glasgow.

We encourage people who want to try something out of the ordinary. You won’t just be taking photos of the match, we’d love you to flex your creative muscle, capture behind the scenes shots, and really get experimental to show the fun and weird side of Scottish football.

This is a PAID position and we’d love to hear from you. Please email our Media & Communications Manager Michael with a wee bit about you and some examples of your work.

(Please bear in mind that, hilariously enough, we play in Alloa. We’ll do what we can to help you with lifts etc. where we can though.)

Staff Update: Michael Moore & Richie Salveta

The club can tonight confirm that Assistant Coaches Michael Moore and Richie Salveta have decided to leave BSC Glasgow FC.

Both are leaving due to personal reasons and leave with our best wishes and thanks for their part in our successes over the last two and a half seasons.

Richie and (Stranraer Legend) Michael have been incredible in their support work with manager Stephen Swift, are both firm favourites both in the dressing room and among our fans, and will be greatly missed around the club.

General Manager George Fraser said: “I would like to thank both Richie and Michael for their contribution over the last two seasons, and we are sorry to see them go. Both have contributed massively to the club’s success during that period, and will be a hard act to follow.”

We are pleased to announce that Club Captain Ross McMillan will be stepping up to a combined Player/Coach role for the 2019/20 season.

Boardroom Changes at BSC Glasgow FC

Following this week’s meeting of the board of BSC Glasgow FC, Steve Prince has decided to step down as Chairperson of the club.

He will be staying on as a shareholder in the club as well as Chairperson of the charity PCST. We thank him for his contribution to our successes.

George Ross has been elected by the board as the club’s new Chairperson. The club’s General Manager George Fraser said: “We would like to welcome George to his new role, and I look forward to working alongside him. I would like to thank Steve for his time in the role, and it’s testament to his work just how far the club as come in a short space of time.”
