Club Development Scotland Visits Maryhill FC

In the latest of our series of videos shedding light on the excellent work happening at all levels of Scottish sport, we paid a visit to one of Scotland’s oldest non-league football clubs who earlier this year warned it may have to fold without new committee members getting involved in the running of the club.

Maryhill FC was founded in 1884 and currently play in the junior West Region league division one. Famous former players include ex-Celtic and Scotland legend Tommy Burns and Jim Duffy, the ex-Celtic and Patrick Thistle player and now Dumbarton manager.

But a tweet put out by the club warned it could not go on without new committee members. In common with many sports clubs, it needs volunteers to carry out vital tasks around the club and on match-days. We spoke to the club about their volunteer recruitment drive and the value of volunteers to football in Scotland.
