Maryhill – 5 reasons you should follow this team

Maryhill FC, Lochburn Park

Famous Glasgow juniors side Maryhill , founded in 1884, play at Lochburn Park, Lochburn Road. writes Ginny Clark. Here are five more reasons to support this tenacious local team …

1 Maryhill midfielder Gavin Stokes scored one of the world’s fastest recorded goals in a home game against Clydebank – into the top corner from the halfway line in 3.2 seconds. Maryhill won the match 3-0 at Lochburn Park, on April 8.

2 Having climbed their way back through the ranks in recent years, Maryhill play in the Super League First Division. After a slow start to the season, John Hughes’ side head into the last games of the campaign after five victories from seven games in April.

3 Some wet winters the Hill’s toughest opponent can seem to be a heavy-going Lochburn pitch. But this season, Maryhill are playing catch-up on their league fixtures partly due to a good  run in the Scottish Junior Cup, reaching the fifth round before being beaten 4-2 by Linlithgow Rose.

4 Many famous names have lined up for Maryhill in the past. Former players include Jimmy Speirs, Tommy Burns, Davie Meiklejohn, Danny McGrain and Paul Wilson.

5 A home win against Blantyre Vics this Saturday, May 6, would be another step towards Maryhill’s Super League First Division survival.
