With no completive football currently being played I asked GDSFC Secretary Nim Roy to open his file on Association trophy celebrations and he immediately produced season 2018-2019 which recorded the unbelievable achievement of Southside Spartans Managed by brothers Martin and Michael McKean, writes Tom Scott.
Nim revealed: “Spartans picked-up an unprecedented Treble in 2018- 2019 to stake their claim as the best team in GDSFC history.”
“The trophy haul started on 24th March, 2019 with a 2-1 victory over fellow Division 1 team GSC Utd in the Only Sport Ltd Champions Cup Final at Toryglen Sports Centre.”
“Next Trophy to head to the McKean/Spartans Collection was the Brothers in Arms League Cup with an impressive 6-0 win over Pollokshields United at Benburb Juniors’ New Tinto Park, Govan, on 26th May, 2019.”
“To complete the clean sweep and a glorious treble, Southside Spartans wrapped up the Only Sport Division 1 Championship on 16th June , 2019 – incidentally winning the League by 9 points with 14 wins, 3 draws, and 3 defeats. A total of 78 goals were scored, which gave them a goal difference of +36. Wow!!”
“What a remarkable achievement from a brilliant team. Massive well done to Michael, Martin and the Spartans lads.”
“Here’s hoping we get football back for them to defend their titles.”
Huge thank-you to Mr Nim Roy for his Round-Up, plus all Photographs and Graphics.
