Ashfield Amateurs were a new name under a former successful set-up from the previous season, reports SAFN Writer Tom Scott. Secretary John Hamilton had already recorded a top-six slot in the Glasgow and District Saturday Morning League over the course of 2009-2010 with his squad of players, but under the Glasgow Athletic banner.
Moving to Ashfield dovetailed nicely with plans for a new, extended professional project.
Said John “A committee was put in place to oversee our aim of running teams aged Under-12 to Under-21 by season 2011-2012.”
The amateurs secured new strips from G20 Security and the Ashfield Bar.
John added “G20 also gave us money towards new bags. Although we attracted good local signings from Possilpark, Maryhill, Milton and Springburn, other players have shown they are prepared to travel out of Renfrewshire on a Saturday morning.”
