Match Preview BSC Glasgow: Manager’s thoughts & who are tomorrow’s visitors?

Chris Anderson is expecting BSC Glasgow to be a tough opponent in tomorrow’s Lowland League clash, but his team should be ready for it after a string of fine displays.

After four matches unbeaten, including a draw with Spartans and two massive away wins at Civil Service Strollers and Cumbernauld Colts, things are looking decidedly better than when a gloomy outlook beset the club amid a run of eight games without a win over the winter months, threatening to derail the season.

However, tomorrow’s opponents managed a 2-0 win over Vale in the reverse fixture at Alloa’s Indodrill Stadium in October, at a time when form had been good.

Anderson said: “After four very impressive performances I am the first person to give credit to my players and they can all be pleased with their contribution over the last month.

“However, tomorrow we face another opponent who inflicted defeat on us last time around and it will require a lot of hard work to put that right today. We played well up there in the last game but still came away with a loss.”

The gaffer also revealed that plans are being put in place for next season, and that many of the current squad will still be around. He will be hoping Jason Stevens does the same after the forward rejected the advances of Bonnyrigg Rose during the week.

“The vast majority of the squad have signed again for next season. We have started our recruitment to add to the squad and our quietly ambitious backroom team are looking for a strong finish from this group to lead into next season.

“We were delighted Jay Stevens decided to stay with us until the end of season at least. It’s no secret that when a team does well individuals will shine and over the last dozen games Jay has excelled.”

Tomorrow’s visitors- BSC Glasgow

Broomhill Sports Club was founded in Broomhill, Glasgow, in June 2004 as a multi-sports club for children. By 2014 the club had grown to cater for 700 children in sports including football, karate, netball and hockey.

BSC Glasgow FC was launched in 2014 as a senior football team associated with the sports club, to provide a pathway into adult football for players from the youth teams. The club successfully applied to join the Scottish Lowland Football League for the 2014-15 season, and won the SFA South Region Challenge Cup in their first season. They are currently playing their home matches at Alloa Athletic’s Indodrill Stadium while they attempt to achieve their long term goal of having their own facility in Glasgow. They previously ground shared with Maryhill F.C juniors at Lochburn Park.

In their first season in the Lowland League they managed a tenth place finish, improving on that to come seventh last season. They are currently tenth, only a point behind Vale in the table. They had occupied a higher league position for much for the season but, like many of the teams in the league, form has been up and down. The last two results though have been decent, an away win at Gala and a draw with runaway leaders East Kilbride. The previous meeting between the clubs this season resulted in a 2-0 home win for BSC Glasgow.
