Clyde star Sean Higgins is hoping that he can continue to be a hit for the club both on and off the field in the next few weeks.

Higgins has already been among the goals this season and will be hoping to hit the target again when the League Two side return to action after the international break on Saturday with their first ever trip to Edinburgh City.

But Higgins also has a new team off the pitch after joining the club’s Community Foundation, initially as part of the Carbon Clyde team.

He will be part of an eco-friendly football programme being delivered to P4-P6 children in local primary schoolsand will share his playing experience in the local community.

The 31-year-old forward, who is also completing his SFA B License, will be working with Carbon Clyde project manager Karen Welsh and community development manager Tom Elliott.

He said: “Clyde FC are a huge part of my life right now and l’m thrilled to be part of the Community Foundation, working with Tom and Karen.

“The Carbon Clyde project is helping Clyde FC reach into the local community and we have a great group of coaches helping to deliver many aspects right now.”

Karen Welsh said: “Sean brings the ‘wow’ factor to our team. It’s great to have a first team player working in the community and Sean has a great way with the children. Not only does he understand the importance of getting Clyde FC engaging with the local community, but he also grasps the underlying concept of the Carbon Clyde project. It’s a win-win for the Community Foundation and l am thrilled to welcome Sean to the team.”
