Broomhill Cup Jan 2024


Recommended Posts

 Scottish Cup 4th Round


It's a break from League action this weekend should the weather allow after a week of heavy snow and Arctic like conditions across the North of Scotland. The club have been busy clearing the pitch on Friday with six inches of snow on top of the covers. The visitors, should we get the green light, are Broomhill. No no no, not Broomhill at Nethybridge, but Broomhill FC from the Scottish Lowland League who play their home games at Dumbarton Football Stadium. They come from the same League as Cowdenbeath who we played in the last round and found it difficult to break them down until the introduction of Wotherspoon and Billy Mckay, so expect the same again with our rather depleted squad.


Match/Ticket Info
















Well done Rhys Beaton: First down to help at the Stadium>>>

It was all hands to the pumps on Friday morning after the massive dump of snow this week left the pitch covered. With the hard frost since the beginning of the week it was the best thing for it to leave the snow on top of the covers to protect the grass beneath, let's hope the big thaw does not end up flooding the pitch.

Mantis gave us a qick résumé on Broomhill: This is the team that played out of Alloa as BSC Glasgow, before becoming Open Goal Broomhill (or “Podcast FC”) when they were taken over by Si Ferry, but that partnership was dissolved and they are now simply Broomhill FC. Broomhill Sports Club originally ran youth football teams back to 2004 and the senior team has been kicking around the LL in its various guises since 2014.

Last Round: We thrashed struggled to overcome the miners of Cowdenbeath until the late introducton of David Wotherspoon and Billy Mckay that saw us squeeze into the next round. Of course Spoony is now off to Tannadice and Billy is carrying a knee injury so that leaves us with, erm, nothing.

Here's the Broomhill Match Report from their own website

Match Report | Cumnock Juniors 0 – Broomhill 3 | 26/11/2023 | Townhead Park

by David McIntyre

Broomhill scored three goals without reply to fire themselves into the Fourth Round of the Scottish Cup.

It was another successful away fixture for the Broom in the Scottish Cup as they headed off to Townhead Park, home of Cumnock Juniors from the West of Scotland Football League. The match started at lightning pace as both teams looked to get an early foothold in the game. Broomhill were boosted with the return of some of their injured players, giving manager Stephen Swift more options to change the game.

Cumnock Juniors grew into the match and had been doing better with their possession. Although Cumnock had more possession they failed to create many goal-scoring opportunities to trouble Luke Scullion.

In the 29th minute, Broomhill took the lead after Ally McColm rifled a low shot into the bottom corner. The goal was created with lovely play down the left-hand side of the pitch involving four players. After the goal, Broomhill took control of the match and continued to pressure Cumnock’s defence.

The second half could not have started any better, with Corey O’Donnell doubling Broomhill’s advantage. Martin Grehan assisted the goal with a lovely touch to set up O’Donnell with a 1v1 with the keeper which the striker deftly dispatched.

The second goal was huge, as it allowed Broomhill to play more freely. Every time they attacked, there was a sense of enthusiasm as they moved up the pitch. The two goal scorers were involved in the third after O’Donnell’s initial shot was parried into the path of McColm to fire into the back of the net and fire Broomhill into the next round.


We have a great the past 😂 Don't we.

Latest Team News

Devine, Harper, Mckay all carrying niggles, Samuels out, Harry out, MacGregor not mentioned. Basically we are down to the bare bones of players likely to be involved in first team games. By my calculations we only have around 15 outfield players fit, plus two capable youths (Bray, Thompson) and four still injured although Roddy seems to flit between still injured or on the bench. Basically, if you have a pulse, you're in the squad.

Broomhill manager Stepen Swift saw his side knock Cumnock Juniors out in the last round at Townhead Park with this ultimately comfortable away win.

Broomhill went 4-3-3 against Cumnock

Att: 322 - Goals: McColm (30, 65) O'Donnell (49)
McKnight   Smith   Moy (Hunter 70)   Ellis

A striker in !  That's a start.

Further pitch inspection tomorrow at 10 am  presumably to let the temp rise and the wind to dry things up a bit.

I have grandkids in Inverness and Dingwall.

watch ict home games with 5 kids, we are all season ticket holders and when ict away I go with my 2 grandkids in Dingwall to watch premiership county.

I know, but I have to spread grandad time.

samuel has been at Dingwall since august 21 and I think he was injured for a long while but last season featured again in the squad.  More a last 5 to 10 minutes take on player at county. He is a battering ram when on and gets about the centre half’s in a way Jordan white and Simon Murray can’t.

Very strong boy. 

may do well for us, I hope he does. One thing guaranteed is you got 100% effort when he did come on, and the centre backs knew they had been in a game, at least for the last 10 minutes or so.

I am not knocking the lad, give him a chance, just me saying what I have seen the last couple of years.

Dons through after a tricky tie at Clyde (well, Hamilton really) Dire conditions on a plastic pitch. Got the job done to stave off the ghosts of Darvel.

Hopefully it's Brora providing the non league shock this season and not Broomhill :ponder:I know I shouldn't be worried...but I am. :crazy:

Tossed the coin today, heads I go, tails I don't. Tails it was. No appetite to watch ICT at present, poor football, back office dictator and cold weather. Sad, but just not got the interest in ICT that I previously did.

Not only a striker, but a six foot striker. Should be a useful addition to our squad.

A handful of changes to the starting line up, including Alex Samuel in for Billy.

Aye, ridgers,harper,devine,mckay & Shaw benched...

Too many changes at the back??

With BBC & sky both suggesting we'll line up 4-4-2

Soon find out.

Bit of a worry that it took over 40 minutes to make their keeper work.

Still, 1-0 up through Gilmour, just his second goal for the club.

Grehan to be sent off is a good bet.

You were so close!
But Samuel fails to score the resultant penalty. ☹️
