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.”

Swifty Signs Up For Next Season

We are absolutely delighted to announce that BSC Glasgow Men’s First Team Manager Stephen Swift and his coaching staff of Richie Salveta, Michael Moore, Stephen Bryceland, and Lynn Glen have all agreed terms to stay with the club through the 2019/20 season.

Swifty’s appointment was a breath of fresh air for the club at the time and under his stewardship we have gone from strength to strength, currently sitting second in the GeoSonic Lowland League.

The Gaffer told us: “We’re really pleased to sign on for another season with BSC Glasgow. Myself and the coaching staff really believe in the boys, the club, and we believe that there’s a lot more to come in the next year.”

General Manager George Fraser said: “Stephen has shown In his time here, his ability to get the best out of players, and our year on year progress is testament to that fact. Of course it’s not a one man operation and all of this wouldn’t be possible without the help and assistance of his backroom team, Richie, Michael, Stephen, and our physio Lynn.”

WE ARE BSC & WE NEED YOU

Our Women’s team are looking for a Media Officer as we get ready for our first season in SWFL2. 

You’ll be covering matches (home and away – with transport to away matches provided) on Twitter and writing up a match report afterwards for inclusion on the BSC Glasgow website.

Ideally we’d love to branch out into doing video and photos and whatnot but we’ll be starting small for now and growing the media presence along with the team.

Get in touch with Michael Park, our Media & Communications Manager, with a sample match report (~150 words) and a wee email about why you’d be excited to join BSC Glasgow!
