CLUB HISTORY


In the spring of 2007, Joe Wynne, Andy Jack and Mark Burns of Barrowfield in Glasgow, developed an interest in creating a local football team.  The three teenagers sought advice from local Stephen Wynne who was known to have a keen interest in the sport.  The group were keen to recruit more players and implement regular training sessions.  They began to hold a number of training sessions at the Banbury Centre football pitch where a number of quality players emerged and gradually the team have continued to improve. The team have begun to raise funds in the local area to finance the team and this is helping to cover the costs of purchasing a team kit and training equipment.  In order to establish the team within the Glasgow area the group knew they would need to register the club and enter a league.  This process is ongoing and has so far involved many hours of research, requests for finance, an appointment of board members and many team meetings.  The newly constructed team website created by M.T. Beaton - thanks to Google Page Creator - is helping the team keep up to date with any changes and updates as well as document the history and progress of their team.
