New Faces On The Board

Posted on 2014/09/09 in News

Albion Rovers are delighted to announce more changes in the Boardroom.

Local entrepreneur and businessman Michael Savage has joined the board as Vice-President, General Manager Stevie Kirk has also been voted on as has Terry Gillooly, who will oversee all aspects of health and safety at Cliftonhill.

The trio join new chairman Pat Gillooly and fellow directors Ronnie Boyd and Paul Reilly.

Long standing director Robert Watt has resigned after numerous years of service, however he will undoubtedly still be around Cliftonhill on match days as a fan.

Chairman Pat Gillooly said: “We are delighted that Michael, Stevie and Terry have agreed to come on the board. This is a really exciting time for the club and we have big plans for the future.

“We are all very forward thinking and our aim is to take this club into a bright new future.

“We thank Robert for his many years of service to the club.”

Michael Savage’s first act as vice chairman was to secure a five figure shirt sponsorship deal with JFM Electrical Ltd for the back of the home shirt and the home and away shorts.

Club Throws Cliftonhill Doors Open to Judo Stars

Posted on 2014/08/28 in News

Commonwealth Games Gold Medallists Louise and Kimberley Renicks will be special guests of the club for this weekend’s match against Queens Park.

The judo sisters were born and brought up in Coatbridge and did themselves, the town and the country proud when they picked up Gold at Glasgow 2014 – they’re just two of over 50 Team Scotland Gold Medalists.

As a small gesture of the club’s appreciation, we have invited the girls and their family along to Cliftonhill tomorrow.

The girls will show off their medals to the crowd at half time and also be presented with two lifetime season tickets to come along and watch the Rovers anytime they have a free Saturday in their training schedule.

We’re hoping a big crowd will turn out to celebrate the girls success and hopefully they’ll bring us some good luck as we take on the Spiders.

So if you’re free tomorrow afternoon, come along to Cliftonhill and meet Coatbridges Gold Medal sisters.
