what do you get an 80 year old man for his Christmas? A trip to Broadwood to see Clyde v Berwick! I’ve never been and neither has my dad so off we go on Saturday fully expecting to see a Berwick win. It’s been a while since my dad has seen a Berwick win so a nice wee treat for his Christmas. The last encounter between the pair at Shielfield saw Berwick walk away with all 3 points after a 3-1 victory. Berwick are currently sitting 7th in the League with 20 points, Clyde sitting in 8th with 12 points and a game in hand. The temperature scuppered last weeks game at Shielfield against Peterhead but this one should go ahead no problem. It will probably rain though, let’s wait and see....
well it started out fine, A 1 hour 15 min journey and we were at Broadwood. Parking was free despite the Clyde website stating that it would be £2 so that’s a wee bonus. I had a read of the Clyde preview on their website. Berwick hadn’t released one for this game which is a little disappointing. A cup of tea for me and a bovril for the old boy and we were ready to take our seats. It was a decent first half but the ref seemed to lose the place in the second half missing loads of fouls and making a fair few wrong calls at throwing and corners, not just for Berwick either. The rain came down in waves and it looked pretty horrible to play in. A few vocal supporters having a go at Berwick, I think these guys lose sight of the fact that the team are part time. If every shot went in and if every pass came off they would be the best team in the world! I followed that sat nav back home, it decided that the motorway we took on the way there wasn’t the way to return so we had a nice wee countryside tour..... Final score 0-0.
