Clyde head north to take on League 2 table toppers Elgin City still chasing their first win of 2016.

The last time Barry Ferguson’s side played a team at the top of the league was on Boxing Day when they won 3-2 at Annan.

But since then, from being in a position to lead the league themselves, the Bully Wee have lost all three games they have played and slipped down into the bottom half of the table, albeit with games in hand on the sides above them.

Clyde’s momentum has also been disrupted by postponements, partly due to the weather but also due to Annan’s continued Scottish Cup involvement which put off their scheduled fixture with the Galabank side last week.

Clyde returned with a 1-1 draw when they last travelled to Elgin in October and also defeated the Highlanders 4-2 when they clashed at Broadwood in November.

Meanwhile off the pitch the club’s annual sportman’s dinner event took place at the Westerwood Hotel in Cumbernauld on Saturday night with around 150 people attending what proved to be another very successful evening.

Guest speakers Scott Glynn and John Gahagan provided some superb entertainment and the event raised nearly £4,000 for the club.

Clyde director and event organiser Gordon Nisbet told the club website: “Our annual fundraising dinner effectively achieved its aims, not just in raising funds for the club.

“The occasion also gave us an opportunity to showcase the tremendous community work carried out by the Get Onside project, that Clyde FC has been successfully pioneering throughout Scotland.”
