BSC Glasgow – An introduction

As you walk onto the playing surface at Saracen Park you get a feeling that you are stepping into a ‘real’ football stadium, you get the sense that Saracen Park has a wonderful story to tell, and it does.


Since being built in 1937 it has been used a dog racing tack, speedway track, the home of Ashfield Juniors and now the home of BSC Glasgow, on of the new additions to the Lowland league. Back in 1953 the stadium housed one of the biggest crowds to ever watch a junior football match when Ashfield Juniors played Clydebank, the home side ran out 6-1 winners on the day.

Next season it’s the ground that BSC Glasgow will call ‘home’. After reaching a three-year agreement with Ashfield Juniors BSC Glasgow will play all their home games at Saracen Park. BSC Glasgow are an ambitious sports club in Glasgow and currently have over seven hundred members, twenty eight youth football teams, eight netball teams and the club aim to expand to one and half thousand members within the next year.

Director of Football, Kenny Moyes, said “We decided that as part of our development we should submit an application to the Lowland League as we are off the opinion that the Lowland League is a better standard and will allow us to develop young players. Currently we don’t have a team at this level and we have been overwhelmed by the quality of applicant we have been getting for the coaches job.

“We have been and watched some League games and I have been very impressed with the level of coaching and professionalism within the league, it seems to be having a very positive effect on the individual clubs. Our ethos is not to judge players at the age of ten or eleven, our club offers young players the opportunity to go and be the best player they can be.

“So far since we started developing youth players, over forty of them have gone on and signed with professional clubs. We hope to be in a position to announce our manager by the end of this month and we have already started planning for next season and we are really delighted to be given this chance.”

Club chairman Stephen Prince added “This is a great opportunity for our club and we will embrace and are delighted to be part of the Lowland League. We have had great support from Ashfield Juniors and they have done everything they can accommodate us. We are hoping that in the future to have a new facility and negotiations have already started between the local authority and ourselves.

“We have also started the process for gaining a license and we are confident that a license can be achieved without any major issues.”

BSC Glasgow will kick off next season on the grass pitch at Saracen Park that is ninety two meters in length and fifty six meters wide.
