Bullwood AFC Assistant Manager Allan McSorley is keeping his fingers crossed two of the biggest Cup competitions in Scottish Amateur Football will be allowed to continue in the New Year after Covid-19 brought them to an abrupt halt last season and in the process allow everyone a double shot of silverware glory!
Having won a League title plus a Charity Cup Final on penalties at Airdrie Stadium. Allan shares the frustration of other clubs still trying to clear Semi-Final hurdles. Between the West and Scottish Cups, Bullwood played 10 games, scored 45 goals and only conceded eight.
One of their Sunday scalps was Harvester, who are former Sunday Trophy holders, and beaten Finalists. Bullwood had to be at their best and defeated the visitors 2-1 in a cracking Quarter-Final.
Before Covid-19, clubs were struggling to find regular training lets and a home ground. Restrictions have added to those concerns, but Allan is adamant “We are really hoping they don’t decide to scrap them (both cups).”
“I have also started coaching Bellshill Athletic 2013s. It is getting harder for Adult teams to get somewhere to train because youth teams offer have lets on them for full nights.”
“We have played a lot at Dalziel Park, and Bothwellhaugh.”
