Broomhill FC Announce New Matchday Communications Manager

Broomhill FC are delighted to announce that David McIntyre has stepped up from his Matchday Reporter role to become the club’s new Matchday Communications Manager ahead of 2024/25.

David said: “I am pleased to make the step up as the new Matchday Communications Manager for the season ahead. I am looking forward to taking on more responsibilities and working with a brilliant team around me.”

Board member George Fraser said: “We have been so impressed with David’s commitment and work ethic since he joined Broomhill as a volunteer last season. We believe that he has all of the attributes required to help us tell our stories across competitions in 2024/25.”

David takes over the role from outgoing Media & Communications Manager Michael Park who is leaving the role after 8 years (on and off!) to spend more time with his young family.  

Club Statement: Management Team

Following the conclusion of the 2023/24 Lowland League season, we would like to thank Stephen Swift and his management team as they move on to pastures new.

Things haven’t turned out the way we had envisaged this season, but the hard work and effort put in by Stephen and his team probably didn’t get the results they deserved.

They all leave on good terms and we send them our best wishes as they take on their next challenge.

Schools & Community Groups To Receive Free Tickets for Broomhill Matches

Broomhill Football Club are delighted to announce that we will be offering free tickets for schools and community groups in the Dumbarton area from season 2023/24.

We are committed to making our home in the town and as part of that, we want to work as closely as we can with our community to make everyone feel welcome.

We have lowered our admission prices from last season, are offering Dumbarton FC season ticket holders £4 entry, and plan to continue to do everything that we can to keep football as an affordable day out for everyone.

Broomhill’s Club Secretary John Dods said:

It’s of vital importance to us that the community we serve has access to affordable football, our standard gate prices and initiatives such as discounted tickets for Dumbarton season ticket holders, certainly help with that, but even this will leave certain parts of our community isolated and unable to access football.

With this initiative we believe we will reach every part of the community. By introducing young people to football, welcoming fans back who had, until now been priced out of football and providing the most vulnerable and isolated parts of our community with a social activity. Now everyone can look forward to the match on a Saturday.”

We are encouraging local community groups, carers, befriending organisations and charities to email us to sign up for our free ticket programme. Get in touch:

Schools tickets can be claimed by pupils at schools in Dumbarton and the surrounding area. Ask at the school office for more details.

The New Broomhill Badge

Broomhill Football Club are very pleased to unveil our new identity to take us forward into the new era of the club.

We know, another one! Following the end of our partnership with Open Goal, we wanted to reflect the short but eventful life of Broomhill through a new badge. As such, we worked with designer Martin Le Roy to create a new roundel badge for the club.

Using the circle from our Open Goal incarnation and the original badge of BSC Glasgow, we introduced the tree adapted from the badge of Broomhill Primary School, where the club was originally founded, the fish to reflect our history in Glasgow, and the saltire to… well… you can probably work that one out.

George Fraser said: “We are delighted with our new badge, can assure everyone that this will be the one we use permanently… unless we decide to change again! In all seriousness though, the badge gives a nod to our roots in Broomhill and our home city of Glasgow, where we have worked tirelessly to return to. We want to acknowledge to the changes that we’ve gone through as a club, and now look forward to a bright future.”

Michael Park said: “We’re delighted to have a badge that we can take forward into the future. The badge previous to our partnership with Open Goal wasn’t our favourite and a lot of the feedback about it looking like a Pro Evolution Soccer badge was noted. We had to make a change last minute and that’s what came out. We were so pleased that we were able to work with Martin to come up with a badge that speaks to our past and our future and gives us something to be really proud of.”
